Being Social

There's always a price to be paid for doing, being, and having more, and it has little to do with working harder or knowing the "right" people. In as few words as possible, "get out more."   - TUT... A Note from the Universe (Mike Dooley) 


A few events lately have convinced me that it is time for some comments on social media. This is not designed to be a list of rules. One of the things I love about social media is that it is still in flux. We're learning "acceptable" behavior as we go along. I've come up with a few suggestions, though, and would welcome your comments. Read more and join the discussion... 



Network this Summer with Dynamic San Antonio Women

WGN has several exciting networking events over the next few months, including free roundtables where you get in-depth resources for expanding your business, while building referral relationships. There are also a social media-focused workshop and a spicy how-to-cook seminar at Aldaco's Mexican Restaurant on the calendar. Registration for many of these events is nearly full, so register today to reserve your seat! Click on the event links or email Andrea Nocito for more info. 

coachingCommunication Coaching

If you need training in communication, consider one-on-one coaching with me. I offer individualized communication coaching. No matter what your communication needs (improving your grammar and sentence structure,  putting together and rehearsing a presentation and getting over your nerves, dealing with difficult people, leading a team, crafting your sales message), I can help. If you need to make real personalized progress, call 210-863-2250 or email for a free initial consultation and assessment.



The Lunchbox Workshops are on vacation for a few months. In the interim, I am searching for an inexpensive venue to house these training sessions, so I can offer them at a lower price. I need a place that has a room for 20 and that will allow participants to purchase lunch or to bring in their own lunch from home. If you have any suggestions, please pass them my way by emailing me at


You bring your lunch; we'll bring the info.
