Changing tides in #social media, #business & #leadership … Social Me

A respected colleague posted a full analysis of their Facebook activity to their news feed  and I could not resist checking it out.

A little sleeping rose

It is amazing how when you feel safe, secure, warm and loved that you can drop your guard and can sleep just about anywhere. Children teach us so many lessons, perhaps more than we teach them. That is a principle that I know to be true in most situations. Sometimes we get so caught upContinue reading “A little sleeping rose”

Sacrifice for the Flowers of Social Media

Do you like flowers? Yes! Do you enjoy flowers? Well, yeah. Do you love flowers? Most people say that they like flowers and would be flattered to receive them. BUT very few people truly love the flowers of a plant. Love requires sacrifice. How many people do you know who will sacrifice for a plant,Continue reading “Sacrifice for the Flowers of Social Media”

Now What: Connect Authentically

What can I say? At home in Fort Smith, Arkansas it has hardly rained in two months. Even the watermelons are in short supply and they can grow in road ditches, given that they get enough water. Where I normally have a beautiful flower garden and vegetable garden, I now have a lot of brownContinue reading “Now What: Connect Authentically”

Social Media: Now What?

First allow me to tell you a little bit about what brings me here, to this place and time. In January 2010, I was doing marketing for a small business in Fort Smith, Arkansas that had a shoe-string budget and wanted to reach as many of their target audience as possible with little to noContinue reading “Social Media: Now What?”

Running water, toilets, electricity, frozen ice cream, tillers, jeeps and Social Media

Do you now or would you like to own a small business? Have you ever worked for a small business? I can answer these questions with conviction and odds are that you can also. In my opinion, small businesses are where it’s at and they are the back-bone of America. (Non-profits aren’t too bad either.)Continue reading “Running water, toilets, electricity, frozen ice cream, tillers, jeeps and Social Media”

Connect: Touch the Worlds and Lives of Others

An advocate by definition has nothing to gain from the advancement of a cause, practice and/or belief. However, when your job and/or lively-hood and reputation is on the line then it is not as easy to be a consultant, coach, thought leader and/or innovator. Or is it? I assert that indeed one is no differentContinue reading “Connect: Touch the Worlds and Lives of Others”

A Special Thanks to @IngridElfver

I had to stop myself twice today, because people that I hardly know put forth the effort and took the time out of their day to compliment me and I am embarrassed to admit that both times instead of stopping, looking the person in the eye, smiling and sincerely thanking them for their kindness, (headContinue reading “A Special Thanks to @IngridElfver”

Annie Sells Welcomes You to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta!

Annie Sells welcomes you to the 2010 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. This is the sunrise that greeted me one year ago today. If you have not been out to the Fiesta, witnessed this sunrise and watched the hot air balloons soar and then rain out of the sky, then seriously consider it.  I have onlyContinue reading “Annie Sells Welcomes You to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta!”

Qwiki or Quickie?

All I have to say is has anyone seen Wall-E? Qwiki is the world’s Auto. Instead of searching the tube with a remote control or scrolling through movies on your computer to save to your Nextfix, all you have to do is pick a topic and sit back.
