Social media is not broadcasting.  It is two-way exchange.

I manage social communities to nurture conversation and develop relationships with brand ambassadors to talk about your brand.   (That is different than statements imported by third party apps onto a wall for the sake of posting something).

12. I Stand On My Desk

Have you seen the movie, “Dead Poet’s Society,” with Robin Williams?  In that film, the teacher challenges his students to stand on their desk to get a different view, perspective.  That inspired me to consistently challenge myself to examine and achieve what I can be doing even better.

I do the same for my clients.

Those that know me well would say I am resourceful.  But no one knows everything.  I’m networking everyday with experts and thought leaders, and you can count on it that I will leverage that for you as my client.

To sum it up…

In the words of Will Smith, “I’m not afraid to die on that treadmill.”

If I’m doing my job, at some point I’ll be able to tell you things about you or your company that you didn’t know.
