In #Marketing, it is all about the words that is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug ... a friend shared this video with me and I thought I would share it with everyone. Remember, positioning is a critical concept in marketing!

Enjoyed teaching at EGBI (@EGBIofAustin) last night - my thoughts and presentation slides of #SocialMedia and E-Commerce!

My friends know that I really enjoy training/teaching small business owners enough so they feel confident about what they need to do regarding social media and business (#socbiz). I was honored to be re-invited to teach the Entrepreneurs in EGBI's Biz Step program. This is a great program for Austin entrepreneurs in general and especially those focused on developing a life style business.

My Social Business (#socbiz) slides and tweets from last night's Refresh Austin (@RefreshAustin) Prezo - Enjoy!

 I really enjoyed giving my updated social business presentation last night to the Refresh Austin group.  It was a lot of fun and had a blast delivering why this topic is important to a group of primarily mobile and web application developers.  They had a lot of fun and here are a few tweets from last night's presentation.  

@joemccann: NOT a shortage of job opps available at #refreshaustin. Recession?

@jacquelineslife: At @refreshaustin filling my brain and belly with goodness. :) 

SUPER Excited to be presenting my views of #socbiz at tomorrow's Refresh Austin! Hope to see you there.

As many of you know, I really enjoy giving public presentations on a variety of subjects ranging from marketing, social media, to my personal journey about personal health and wellness.  (For those who are reading my blog for the first time, I have so far lost 70 lbs and recovered from Lyme Disease.)  

So I am pleased to share with all of you that I'm presenting my views of #socbiz at tomorrow's Refresh Austin.  

Business Plan Competitions, @TIEAustin, #tyeatx11 and @MeetatTexas - How I spent my Saturday afternoon..

 It is not your normal Saturday afternoon - I'm at @MeetatTexas where I was getting ready to support some local "students" during their business plan competition, #tyeatx11.  These were not your ordinary students but some really talented Austin middle school and high school students competing for their business plan.

Brands, Custom Cars, Hot Rods, @PGoplan, @Macromental and Lots of Cool Pics!

According to @PGoplan, his simple definition of a brand is: Brand is the premium you pay between two otherwise undifferentiated products. What is a car? Is it just 4 Wheels, at least a seat with a stearing wheel and an enclosure? The automobile industry has been having fun, creating, and Differentiating their offerings and brands. According to @Marcomental, the brand needs to “"Differentiate or Die!" This is not just limited to the cars themselves. In the hot rod culture, even accessories need to be differentiated so that a Hot Rod can truly be a custom car.

Announcing that I am stepping down as Co-Chair of the Social Media Ambassador Program at the GAHCC

I am sad to share with all my blog readers that I am stepping down as Co-Chair of the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber (GAHCC) Social Media Ambassador program leaving Ricardo, THE Social Media DYNAMO, as your Chair. Also, I am very happy about this change since this will give me more time to focus on my current clients.

Time, ROI, Seth Godin, @mnthomas and common sense ... introducing ROIOT

Sometimes a certain word pops in front of you all day long.  That word today is "Time".

In today's Seth Godin post, he wrote: Instead, it can become, "I don't want to do that because it's not worth the time/resources."

This also captured my attention today ..
