Make That Technology Work For You, Honey!
Don’t run around like a chicken with its head cut off. Do make technology work for you. When I was a kid my Mom used to always say, “I’ve been running around all day like a chicken with its head cut off.” (Yo, PETA!) Being highly visual and very imaginative, as most kids are, it would bother me. A lot. Maybe you’ve heard it said before, or maybe it was just my...

The one-two punch.
I believe in Social Media as much, if not more, as the next guy to power your business onto greater heights. I’ve seen it first hand build a brand, market a product, move units.

The LinkedIn-Twitter-Sharing Debacle.
My journal’s out. It’s totally confession time. When I first got wind that sharing policies had changed on LinkedIn and that tweets were no longer going to be displayed, I blamed LinkedIn. Either I completely missed the part in the notification email that read “Twitter evolved it’s strategy,” or my brain twisted the information because my love for Twitter blinded...
