I don’t care if you “like” me or not…

You read that right. I don’t care.

Alright, fine, sure it’d hurt my feelings if you, my devoted reader, didn’t care for me personally though professionally I don’t care. I’m specifically referring to Facebook “likes”. The last few weeks I’ve been blogging about common mistakes I see and buying likes and/or running contests on Facebook is just another mistake.

Will You Answer the Call?

A CTA Calendar (Call to Action Calendar which is I *think* something I kind of made up) is simply putting your social media…

Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015…A Special Gift Inside

2014 was a fantastic year for me personally and professionally. I’ve met so many wonderful individuals whom I am honored to call my clients and who have entrusted me with their social media strategies. For that, I thank you and am ever so grateful for you.

5 Tips to Getting Your Business Through the Holidays

My Close Encounter with the Third Kind

When I was a little girl I loved dancing, ballet, and WRITING!   I was always scribbling my thoughts and ideas down on paper.  I won awards in school for my writing and attended Young Author Society Conferences were I excelled as well.  My first decade of life I decided I would become a journalist and do a lil dancing on the side.  All was well in my world, not many people know what they want to do at age 30, let alone age 10.
