Sorry for the short notice on this first one, but if you can fit it in, you won’t regret it!

For six months now, I’ve been tak­ing an online course called “Social Net­work­ing with Sab­rina Gib­son.” Sab­rina has over 15 years’ expe­ri­ence in the inter­net field and is widely con­sid­ered an expert in up-t0-the-minute infor­ma­tion and strate­gies to help business-people use social media (Twit­ter, Face­book, LinkedIn, blog­ging, etc.) to get the word out about what they have to offer to others.

Today (June 9) from 12:30–2:00 p.m. (PDT), Sab­rina is offer­ing a FREE webi­nar on get­ting the most out of a Face­book Page for the sake of your busi­ness. You can still reg­is­ter this morn­ing at: How to Use Face­book for Your Busi­ness.

If you can’t make this event, I strongly urge you to try to work the fol­low­ing two into your schedule:

Sab­rina is dynamic and fun, and has a TON of infor­ma­tion to share! I’ve had a blast learn­ing from her, and I’m cer­tain you will too! (Even if you don’t have a busi­ness to mar­ket, you might still want to check these out for fun. Face­book Pages can be used for non-business pur­poses as well; LinkedIn is intended for pro­fes­sion­als of any sort, whether you work for some­one else or for your­self; and blog­ging… well, blog­ging is just plain fun!)

This is amaz­ing!! A reminder that when we fall down, we need to try and try and try again until we find the strength to get back up. God will give us that strength. Do not lose hope! If Nick Vuji­cic can live in hope, so can you!

Thanks to my friend and social net­work­ing coach Sab­rina Gib­son for pass­ing along a sim­i­lar video about this inspir­ing gentleman!

What a moti­va­tion he is for us all!

I just dis­cov­ered the Writer’s Digest Com­mu­nity http://​ping​.fm/​Z​JpCT and am excited to link up in yet another way with fellow/sister writ­ers and editors!

It astounds me how much I’ve heard and read in just the past week regard­ing con­nect­ing with oth­ers via social-networking sites! I know all these arti­cles and ideas didn’t just come about this week, so I gather it’s because my mind has sud­denly been opened to the con­cept, thanks to a sis­ter busi­ness­woman who has quickly become some­one I count as a friend (shout-out to Tanya Mor­ri­son: www​.360de​gree​woman​.org !) and who led me, in turn, to link up with Sab­rina Gib­son (www​.Social​Net​work​ingRock​Star​.com) under whose tute­lage I will begin a Social Net­work Max­i­miza­tion men­tor­ing pro­gram in just a cou­ple of weeks.

Social-networking sites have grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years, and they’re not just for swap­ping gos­sip or quips about one’s day any­more! Not that there’s any­thing wrong with that casual social­iz­ing, but I find myself intrigued and fas­ci­nated by the (still rel­a­tively) new oppor­tu­nity for broad­en­ing our com­mu­ni­ties, our busi­ness net­works, the knowl­edge base from which we may ben­e­fit, and — if we are will­ing — our world­views in such a rel­a­tively easy and inex­pen­sive way. Even those of us who are self-employed and fairly “solitarily-employed” are by no means “out here on our own” any­more! In the words of the beloved Mis­ter Rogers, “It’s such a good feel­ing…!” and “It’s a beau­ti­ful day in the [cyber-]neighborhood!… Won’t you be my neighbor?”
