907 have u noticed when you are sometimes having a crazy day and you go to your computer adn it starts to act crazy too? nothing works and you get more flustered and the more flustered u get the more things dont work. thats true of life in general & lot of science to prove it - my website has videos of bruce lipton who show how our inner thoughts shape our outer reality with teh internet you can instantly see this correlation A shoe salesman is assigned a new territory, some islands in the south Pacific. He gets to one such island and finds that everyone is barefoot. He calls his boss and says, “We can never be successful here. No one wears shoes.” Needless to say, he is quickly replaced by another, more optimistic salesman. He shows up at the same island, calls his boss and says, “Send me 1,000 pair today! We’re going to do great. No one here wears shoes!”

Summary: There is still so much confusion about social media - what is it, why do we need it, and how to adopt it. Despite its obvious benefits, many people have limiting assumptions that stop them from trying social media. I made this presentation at the Massachusetts Small Business Development Corporation. The purpose was to get people to think about what beliefs are limiting them from using social media, to understand what exactly is social media, and then how to use it. I enjoyed presenting it and there were some good discussion points. Please post any questions you may have here and I will try to get back to you ASAP.
