Weekly Roundup: 3 Must-See YouTube Videos for Entrepreneurs (June 12, 2015)
Another week, another roundup of great videos for small-business owners and entrepreneurs to be educated and inspired by. This week, we have a trio of videos that includes Brendon Burchard discussing how to make a great first impression and Google giving an in-depth look at how businesses can capitalize on “micro-moments.” Plus, Evan Carmichael’s 40-minute video outlining Steve Jobs’s Top 10 Rules for Success. It’s filled with vintage Jobs footage and it’s great.
How to Make a Great First Impression
It’s something the best of us stress over: making a great first impression. Making a good impression on others is especially important when it comes to business, and Brendon Burchard offers six tips for making the most of meeting someone for the first time. Perhaps his most valuable suggestion, though, is that your exit should be on a positive, upbeat note. Burchard says, “How you leave is much more important than the first impression.”
Micro-Moments: The New Battleground for Brands
This is a fantastic 22-minute video from Google that focuses on the idea of “micro-moments”—those little moments sprinkled throughout today’s always-online consumer decision journey, from idea to research to purchase. Google brings a human element to the brand-marketing conversation and offers some great ideas on how to best take advantage of this new consumer landscape.

This is by far the longest “10 Rules for Success” video that Evan Carmichael has put together. Running a hefty 40 minutes, it runs down 10 philosophies on life, business, and success from Apple’s Steve Jobs. With lots of vintage footage of Jobs speaking, the video is filled with wisdom, insight, and inspiration. Essential viewing for entrepreneurs in need of a little motivation.
