Half-Baked Social Media Cake

Half-Baked Social Media Cake

Do we understand enough about the present to predict the future? I get asked almost daily to reveal what I believe the future has in store for social media development. I find this topic strange because we barely understand what is happening now in social media. Undoubtedly those of us claiming any kind of expertise in social media are often seduced on keeping up appearances by giving our opinions and predictions at a frequency equal to a self-loading paintball gun. But it’s that very frequency where lack of understanding is proven; an overload of misleading information meant to serve singular purposes, companies and/or people is the problem not the solution. read more »

So here is my reflection and how I am going to put into action. read more »

Interview with Best Selling Author and Couple’s Therapist, Harville Hendrix

Some people may find it odd that I, a woman in my 30’s, who has never been married choices a couple’s therapist as one of my greatest idols. His name is Harville Hendrix, PhD. He is the author of the bestselling book, “Getting the Love You Want” and co- founder of Imago Therapy that was developed  with his wife (equally dynamic and inspiring) Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD. He has been featured on the Oprah Show several times and made Oprah’s list of TOP 20 Unforgettable Shows. Harville’s passion for his work comes from personal experiences, appreciation for loving energy, and an understanding of the importance of connectivity.  Last month I had the great pleasure of interviewing Harville. As I listened to his kind, warm voice, (The kind of voice you imagine for the narrative of an endearing children’s story!) I was inspired to share his words and mission with everyone. He understands the importance of “focused connectiveness,” not just for intimate couples but as a means to heal and help relationships and communities of the world come together for the better good. read more »
