Now I know this is going to make me seem like a bitter old man or something but I’m 27 writing this after realizing this myself. Plus what threw me into writing this was a friend of mine coming back from Chicago after attending a seminar on social media. She actually sort of works for me so I had to pay attention to what she was saying as far as how the world has shrunk, blah blah blah, we’re in a new age of branding, GREAT! I’ve somewhat tried to pay attention to social media trends but not really . . . meanwhile practicing the same face to face, “press the flesh”, shake of a hand business I’ve been doing this whole time. Even though it was on my to-do list to integrate the social media accounts I DID have (like two and I never used them) I never considered the power of online networking.
