A Big Ole Facebook No-No for Eager Group Leaders (+ Some Guidelines)

A Big Ole Facebook No-No for Eager Group Leaders (+ Some Guidelines)

Facebook business page or Facebook group? Which one … or both? These were the questions I was asking myself recently. I was craving more connection – more engagement – more intimacy – and the typical Facebook business page just wasn’t delivering that.

Real-Life Business Wisdom from the Timeless Dr. Seuss

Real-Life Business Wisdom from the Timeless Dr. Seuss

What I I love about thought-provoking quotes is they pack a punch! They make you stop the meandering busy-ness of life and think. Ponder. Reflect. Connect. Just wander around my Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter pages and you’ll see a virtual plethora of quotables that make you feel something. I grew up with Dr. Seuss. My kids grew up with him too.
