Today I wanted to do a quick celebration - motivation post. It's official ... I was recently quoted in the article Digital Discretion by Nicole Marie Richardson, which was published in the April 2010 issue of Essence Magazine! When I first saw the published article I had to share it with my facebook friends and now I've taken the time to officially post it on sistasense.com. Getting into Essence is every black woman's dream, so I am so excited about getting quoted and looking forward to my first official Essence interview (hint hint).
This particular article is about how to maintain your professional image on social networks, so if you don't have this issue go get it! This issue also includes the 2010 Black Woman's Tech Guide. Social Media Marketing is a BIG part of my business, so I was honored to do the interview. Funny story, last year May I almost fell out of my chair when I got interviewed for The Network Journal, in the article 'Does Your Business Need a Website?' ... I was so excited! There is no better feeling than being recognized as a noted expert in your field, and I can tell you that THIS all goes to show how valuable social networking and consistent blogging is to your business.
I've never had a PR Agent ... never done a Speaking Engagement ... and yet through my blogging and social media activities I've been able to not just teach but reach thousands of women entrepreneurs, which has put me in the eye of publications and people I could have only dreamed about just a few years prior! So keep on blogging your way to the top! I'm not at my peak yet, but trust me when I say ... I Am enjoying the climb.
