Facebook Did What?!

1 in every 7 people on the planet used Facebook yesterday. Did you?

It marks the first time in its history that more than 1 billion people were using the site in a single day.

Facebook has come a long way since 2004 when starting out, essentially, as an online directory for Harvard’s students.

I utilize many social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Snapchat, etc. (Feel free to follow me on any of these channels…I promise to follow back.)

For pleasure, Instagram is my favorite. For business, whether promoting an idea, blog post or event, Facebook is clearly the best arrow in my quiver. And, it’s not even close.

If you are a small business owner, blogger, teacher, entrepreneur or anyone trying to reach the largest and most engaged possible audience, you need to consider using Facebook. Now.

Don’t just take my word for it. Take the world’s. (139 words)

P.S. – If you need help setting up a Facebook business page or just need a little advice or encouragement, don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

Podcasts: A New Way to Grow

Why My Commencement Speech Bombed

I wish I could have a “do-over”. In light of tonight’s graduation ceremony in our sleepy, little lake community, I was reminded of perhaps the worst talk I have ever given. (believe me…I just read it, again, and should immediately send an apology to … [Continue reading]

What Others Don’t See

  You astound me with your ability to see things that I don't. Perspectives I've never had, ideas that are foreign to me. You are able to unearth beauty in seemingly mundane places and recognize possibilities in people I routinely pass … [Continue reading]
