Carla’s Corner – Transitioning and Rebounding
As the season changes from summer into fall, it is important that we change too. Transition is an essential part of living. Ask yourself what did you not do during the summer and make a plan to do during this fall. Hit the reset button and come back better!

PMM Minute podcast on Soundcloud
I have started the Project Management Minute podcast on Soundcloud to help the busy professional learn the discipline. I totally understand that many of my Blogtalkradio Project Management Monday listeners love my show but it is 15-30 minutes long. None of my Soundcloud podcasts are longer than 5 minutes allowing listeners to learn on the go. New episodes are uploaded every Monday and Thursday. My latest Project Management Minute episode is here:

I have received a lot of positive feedback and increased subscription to my Soundcloud. Before PMM’s podcast creation, my channel has been inactive. Now that I have created the podcast series and uploaded some of my book interview, I am gaining momentum. I have established Soundcloud goals. My goal is to obtain 100 subscribers by November 1, 2016. I will keep my community abreast of my progress.
Converting my PMM podcasts into YouTube videos to increase SEO
I have also decided to convert my Project Management Minute podcasts into YouTube videos to increase SEO. YouTube is the second largest search engine and is owned by Google, the largest search engine. My strategy is about getting my name and project management message out there.
Speaking of subscribers, I have over 850 on Pinterest
I have gained over 100 subscribers since my last newsletter. I attribute this growth to repining my PM.Expert articles onto my Project Management board and changing my boards’ order. Now I have all of my blogs on the first row. This change draws more attention and traffic when viewers check out my profile. In addition, I have pinned my YouTube LinkedIn Profinder campaign videos in there which are generating traffic. My Google Analytics attest to this fact.

Out and about
As many of you know, I have an economist background. For the past month, I have been attending Brookings Institution events. Brookings Institution is a premier economist think tank. I saw the US Treasury Secretary get interview ahead of the G-20 meeting (an economic meeting of the 20 largest economies) and another economics lecture which were good. View the photos below:
An All-New Project Management Minute episode – Scope
I will upload an all-new episode entitled scope this Thursday. Scope is one of the three constraints. Cost and the time are the other two constraints.
Top 40 Project Management Terms Book
I had an epiphany this past weekend: I could convert my video into audio and have it transcribed. My tentative book completion date would be around October 15th. I will keep my community informed once it is done!
Take care and thanks for reading and subscribing!
