Mashable’s fifth annual Social Media Day was last week – Monday, June 30th. If you’re not familiar with the concept, learn more about it here. This year’s local celebration in Franklin, TN was hosted at the Franklin Theatre located on our historic Main Street.
It was presented by the Williamson County Convention & Visitor’s Bureau and featured a fabulous panel of social media professionals. Not to toot my own horn here, but I feel like I’m fairly savvy when it comes to social media. I was kinda hesitant to attend because I was curious just how much … Read the rest

As an entrepreneur who has learned A LOT from other individuals, I highly believe in passing along the experiences and insights I’m gleaning from my journey in business.
When I graduated from Belmont University in 2006, little did I know that just a few years later, I would be making visits back to campus to give presentations and speak to students in the PR program, their school for entrepreneurship and, most recently, the Lambda Pi Eta – a collegiate honor society for the National Communication Association.
In my most recent presentation at Belmont with … Read the rest

Building a business requires A TON of personal accountability. It also requires a fair amount of discipline, drive and overall motivation to make things happen. I recently came across another fellow network marketer who was inspired by another networker to begin a daily video accountability challenge. I thought this was brilliant and decided to follow suit. I think there’s SO much we can learn from each other…both from our successes and our lessons learned.
W.O.W. interview – Maryn Williams – “I love the flexibility of working around my life as opposed to living around my work.”

I do a LOT of networking both online and offline. Maryn Williams was one of the very first people I had the pleasure of connecting with back when I first launched my business. She has seen me evolve from young, driven entry-level employee to young, driven entrepreneur. We’ve had many dialogues over the last few years about business, life and, in general, making a difference in the world. I always walk away with a new, refreshed perspective after speaking with Maryn. She enjoys serving others and has a variety of fun personalities, which you will discover in our interview today. … Read the rest

Jessica Bishop is one of the most driven, dynamic women I’ve ever met. I initially discovered her in my wedding blog days. Mr. Dial and I were on a very tight wedding budget, so it was only natural that in my Google searching about Nashville weddings that I would come across The Budget Savvy Bride. I immediately fell in love with her and with her highly-engaging blog. Not only does BSB keep her busy, but she also has a bustling graphic design business. And on top of all that…she’s also relocating from beautiful Nashville, TN to The Big … Read the rest

Remember my blog post about Google Plus back in September? Well, if you’re a business owner, not only do you need to have a Google+ profile, you also need a Google+ page for your business.
That’s right, just a few days ago Google Plus launched business pages. Watch out Facebook!
Why do you need to jump on the bandwagon? Because, let’s face it, Google owns search. You don’t “Yahoo!” to comparison shop or “Dogpile” it when you’re looking for information about your favorite band or restaurant. You “Google” it. If you have a Google Plus page for your business and … Read the rest

When I initially heard about Google+, I groaned. I have a Twitter account. I’m on Facebook and manage a fan page. I’m on Pinterest, Delicious, Foursquare and who knows where else. The last thing I wanted was one more social network to keep up with.
When a gal pal I’m connected with over at The Awesome Women Hub offered to send me a Google+ invite, however, I’ll admit, I was curious enough to accept her offer.
I setup my account and browsed around the Google+ site. Wow. Many things to learn. I was somewhat pessimistic and not very enthused … Read the rest
