He is a Facebook advertising genius and is going to teach us why and how Facebook’s pay per click is so powerful.  To join the webinar, all you have to do is register on my Facebook page.

25 Things you Never Knew you Wanted to Know About This Business Technology Demystifier

Want to know more about me? Here are 25 things you may not know.   So here goes: I take my wedding ring off every night when I crawl into bed. It started because when I got married I wasn’t use to wearing rings and my ring irritated my finger at night. Now it has become a habit that I don’t even thing about. Even to the point if I fall asleep with my ring on I take it off in my sleep. I have tested this – I REALLY do take my ring off in my sleep! At least once a week or more I wake up and can’t find my wedding ring, only to have it in the most obvious place right in front of my face. Every time I can’t find it, I panic, even though I know I shouldn’t. I was in staffing before I started my business. It is amazing how much you learn about business when you work in the staffing industry. Need to know about workers comp, payroll, or employment law? Get a job in staffing. One of my dogs reminds me of my pit-bull that passed away earlier than expected. We got her (not a pit) 6 months after my pit passed away, but only after I had a dream about my beloved pit. Almost felt like I got permission to get a new doggie. I have a wonderful son who reminds me on a daily basis that blessings are all around us. I hate to cook and clean. I felt guilty for many years because of this hatred. I always...

9 Things You Need to do Differently in 2015

After being in business for three years, fighting through the ups and downs and watching or guiding other businesses through the technology mess, there are several nuggets of wisom I want to share with you.   1. Not every new technology is good technology. Companies are really good about marketing the next thing that will simplify your life. Honestly, it isn’t always worth jumping into the newest technology. Just because Microsoft comes out with a new version of windows, doesn’t mean you should jump on it. Or just because Apple released the newest iPhone doesn’t mean you have to buy it the day it hits the market.  Take your time, watch what this new technology is doing. See how others like it and don’t purchase it until you know for sure it’s what you and your business need. 2. Social media works, if you approach it properly. The truth is not many business owners have the amount of time needed in order to get the full impact of an active social media presence. If you have the means, outsource your social media activity to a professional. If not, make sure you get enough training and allow enough time to manage your online presence. 3. Email marketing is not dead. So many times I hear from people they don’t want to do email marketing because no one reads it anymore. Well I disagree. If you provide content your audience wants to read, and provide enough of a hook, you will see results in the form of income from your efforts. 4. Mobile computing isn’t going away. Smartphones and tables are...
