    i am a marketing & social media consultant & we as a company offer mrktg, branding, & web solutions based on your unique strengths & authentic voice.
    and i like to think of myself as a mindful person who knows marketing & social media

    have u noticed when you are sometimes having a crazy day and you go to your computer adn it starts to act crazy too? nothing works and you get more flustered and the more flustered u get the more things dont work.
    thats true of life in general & lot of science to prove it - my website has videos of bruce lipton who show how our inner thoughts shape our outer reality
    with teh internet you can instantly see this correlation
    A shoe salesman is assigned a new territory, some islands in the south Pacific. He gets to one such island and finds that everyone is barefoot. He calls his boss and says, “We can never be successful here. No one wears shoes.”
    Needless to say, he is quickly replaced by another, more optimistic salesman. He shows up at the same island, calls his boss and says, “Send me 1,000 pair today! We’re going to do great. No one here wears shoes!”
  • 912
    its important to see your beliefs and limiting assumptions about social media & then question them is it so? we limit ourselves before giving a full oppportunity to explore adn then make an informed decision
    Is that so? and once you see its not true, you explore further,
    What can this do for me?
    How can I utilize this?
    And how can you use it instead of why you cannot
    -time consuming
    -overwhelming
    - privacy - talking about your work & not intimate details
    - complex
