Content Marketing, Cause Marketing and Social Media are converging in a way that offers new net-working opportunities for persons out of work ... or "in between successes."

This is a handout for my March 30, 2009, presentation to the Businesspeople Between Jobs organization in Ballwin, Missouri.

Some of the data is from a Survey Monkey survey which 102 (about 33% ) BBJ members completed between March 26 and 28.
