The past few weeks I’ve been dipping my toes into the paid advertising arena on social media, trying out a few different methods and testing the waters.  I’m no expert by any means –extreme beginner alert.  However, with a few weeks under my belt, I can tell you what I have found so far.  Results.

Listen, we've all been there.  Running around like a crazy person putting out fire after fire, hopping from one project to the next, and spreading ourselves way too thin to feel like we're actually accomplishing any task successfully from start to finish.  If every day is turning into a crisis in the workplace, you've got to take a step back and re-evaluate.  It's time to take a look around and see what you can tweak, adjust, cut out, start doing differently, etc. to turn your hours of work chaos into meaningful time spent that doesn't leave you wiped.

On the 12th anniversary 9/11, I am reminded of the importance of compassion, respect, and validation not just from the every day Joe putting information out into the world, but also from the businesses, brands, etc. who are involved socially on the internet. Because there are times, both in life and in business, when we as people have to take a step back and assess the situation in front of us. We have to be cautious of our approach to sensitive situations and we have to remember that, although we are speaking through a brand, we are still speaking to other human beings during a very sensitive time.

Customers. You've worked hard to build your business and you should have found out by now that there is a necessary component to your success. Customers. The common denominator between a giant rise to profit and the greatest plummet to failure. Customers. Here's my point folks, sometimes we build and build and build -finally get to that "hey, we're successful" part -and then seem to forget exactly who it was that put us in that position in the first place.
