Join a unique publication aiming to bring writers penning about technology. Reach out to a broad audience using the power of ILLUMINATION.

Introduction

We owe our civilization to technology. Almost everything around us is manifested, affected, evolved, and simply a by-product of technology. In other words, technology is ubiquitous.

Are you a technician, philosopher, entrepreneur, entertainer, artist, futurist, scientist, polymath, or a storyteller? If your writing practice includes one of these roles, your stories can shine on Technology Hits.

My aim is to introduce technology-related stories to a broad audience using my sizable network. Let me briefly introduce myself and how I qualify to run such an ambitious venture.

My brief background

I am a technologist who worked in large corporate organizations within the last four…

This is what I learned.

Introduction

I published a story about my initial experience of Vocal. The readers well received the story on my experimentation. More importantly, the responses motivated me to write a follow up on my findings.

My purpose was to introduce my findings and initial impression on Vocal+. I mentioned the basics and provided adequate information to get you started writing for Vocal. Many writers found Vocal useful as a freelance opportunity.

Several writers enhanced my messages. From your comments, I learned about new features. Thank you all for your excellent input. Through this initiative, I met new writers and started collaborating. One…


If they do, they are not leaders, but…

I usually write about what leaders do.

In this post, I look at leadership from a different angle to recognize fake leaders. I encapsulated many points under six headings to make it easy to read and learn.

I use daily language so that any reader can benefit from this post. Explanations are short because the headings are self-explanatory.

The fake leaders reflect the attributes of charlatans, shams, hoaxers, fraudsters, mountebanks, and swindlers.

They disguise their motives using tricky methods and raise their voice like a bully.

It is crucial to recognize fake leaders as they resemble sneaky viruses attacking the…

Introduction

Over 1000 new writers joined ILLUMINATION Integrated Publications within the last month. Many of them ask me three questions:

1 — How can I gain more followers?

2 — How can I gain more readers and reading times?

3 — How can I be a top writer?

I’ve helped hundreds of writers to level up within the last 15 months. Their success gave me delight and further inspired me to help more writers.

When mentoring and coaching my proteges, I provide a pragmatic, realistic, and action-oriented approach.

Without a willingness to grow and take action, nothing happens.

Collaborative Intelligence and Fusion Culture

Collaborative Intelligence

Digital venture leaders survive and thrive with collaborative intelligence. Thus, collaborative intelligence is inescapable in their skill sets.

Collaboration refers to a team of people working together to achieve mutual goals and to create synergistic outcomes.

The terms like teams, mutual goals, and synergistic outcomes are essential entities of this simple yet powerful concept.

Collaboration can occur at work and in our personal life. My focus is on the professional aspect of the collaboration rather than entertainment or hobbies.

Collaboration may take place in different modes and formats. For example, two or more people share ideas for a project plan…


And produce in flow state consistently
