Or the biggest shift in business communication since the invention of the telephone?  Check out this powerful video and let us know what you think.

Until I saw this powerful video, I thought of Social Media as a sort of fun toy to use to share my thoughts with people I don't ordinarily connect with.

Then I learned that I could keep up with some of my adult children's activities on Facebook. 

I admit, I've been collecting followers and friends and groups without any particular system or thought. Now I see that I am far behind the times.

Ouch! Social media has become a powerful tool for business communication.

Check out this video and learn about these changes and many more.

Accepting The Spotlight

My clients are great and I love to brag about them. I don't have permission to share this woman’s name, but she will allow me to share her story. Here's just one of the reasons why I love coaching.
