To get what you want in life; you first have to decide what you want!
If I have said it once I have said in a bazillion times, "determine goals and manage your own expectations!" This is true for most things in life, business and most definitely, Social Media.
Recently great things have been happening for my clients, my company and me, personally! This didn't happen over night. I started out a couple years ago with an entirely different plan. As the economy changed, business plans changed, I had to also. I knew I wanted to be of service, and help people use Social and New Media strategically to accomplish productivity goals for their businesses.
What did I do?
