Opportunities, challenges, lessons learned from a big year, 2020, and our personal takes on how can we, as businesses, use Social Media, as we connect with the world, and ourselves, so we can make an impact.
Behind the scenes from an event to remember!
Today I’m bringing a story with the bears. I just love how they still keep showing up. I have been enjoying greeting and meeting them during the New Zealand lockdown weeks, somehow they always brought a smile to my face. I imagine you would have seen some, too?
Here is a story inspired by the bears who keep showing up.
Today is a very special time of our lives and these past few days probably were very special for many of you as well. How are you all feeling? Yeah..
I am feeling really overwhelmed... but, I have a good news
Social Media is and hopefully will always remain social, so we will always be able to connect no matter what is the current situation and limitations in our lives.
Here are some tips to consider how you can turn this situation into opportunity and how to practice social distancing - yes, on social media :)
Also an update on the workshops that seems to be the right decision now.
Following the wonderful feedback from you all, I am excited to share with you the latest "B!Socials in the Spotlight" series - yes, now it's turned into a series! - featuring my lovely clients who we had the chance to work together with on their Social Media Marketing, and who are each doing some amazing things in their respective fields.
A big shoutout to you all who stepped up, decided to invest in yourselves, put in time & some thinking behind your posts to bring real & valuable content to your clients, dared to be brave, do something new or out of your comfort zone, and to all of you who chose to B!Social with us in the past few months to take your business or organisation to another level. Here is to leveraging the power of Social Media!
Everyone, please meet the B!Socials - connect with them, follow them, B!inspired by them and their top tips! And who knows, you or a friend might actually need one of them in your life, right now?! :)
What's a really good idea to do before going for a networking event?
Top Tip: get our LinkedIn profile updated and ready to connect, as it can often serve like, or even replace, our business cards these days!
And it's much more, than just a business card, or a CV! LinkedIn is a place where people can get to know more about what we have to offer. It's a place where we can build new connections, foster relationships, inspire and share our professional experiences with each other, and this all might lead to more business opportunities.
Here is to the fantastic team at the 1st B!Social powerhour session.
“Do you want to be a judge at this year’s Young Enterprise Awards? It is on the 29th of October - last year you were travelling, I hope not this year.”
When Ventura Fitzgerald, the Coordinator of the Event contacted me via LinkedIn, I knew right away that this year I can and I will say #YES. Yes to the Young Enterprise Regional Final and Awards, yes to supporting today's youthful leaders and tomorrow's best startups in our region.
Yes to connecting with our local community. Yes to celebrating and encouraging entrepreneurship. And yes to passing on the knowledge and experience I have gathered along the years.
I knew I will have messages to share. I knew there will be ears that will listen and embrace it.
But little did I know how this experience will make me reflect, re-evaluate. Tune in and grow.
Here is a story of what I learned from the Regional YES Awards.
Inspired by #judgelife.
How time flies! Yes, spring has sprung, and I have to admit I have no idea where did the last month go! I can't believe we celebrated 2 years in business & the 2nd Anniversary of launching B!Social, from Nelson to the world! :)
Here are some exciting updates on what happened in the past few weeks in the B!Social universe.
And, proud to introduce a new feature on the blog: The B!Social Hall of Fame :)
Thank you to all the amazing people & my lovely clients for joining me on the journey! :) Here are all the details, read on!
It's time to #bsocialnow :)
