OK, My good friend Mark Schaefer who wrote “The Tao Of Twitter”–on it’s way to being perhaps the best selling business book on Twitter EVER–will tell me my blog sucks because I don’t link too much and it’s boring to view. Well, yes. He’s right but I don’t care. My goal in life is not to be “the best blogger” or have “the best blog” or be on any big list. Actually, I’m on some pretty great lists (boring blog and all–ha). I will surely add a picture to this blog post but right now..this minute. I’m in my loft office downtown and loving reflecting on what’s coming up. We just finished a great client event and I find myself thinking how lucky I am. Most of what comes next is that I have great relationships that help my clients THROUGH Twitter. Amazing the power of Twitter.
Next week I get to travel to see my great friend @AnneDGallaher and @MarkRaganCEO to attend a NASDAQ meeting and ring the stock market closing bell (Mark gets to ring it but, hey, we’ll be there). The following week I have the distinct pleasure of being on a PR panel at #SoSlam–one of Tennessee’s biggest and most successful social media for business meetings ever. It sold out at 400 tickets. We could have sold 600. Thanks to @MarkWSchaefer (the brainwave behind it) and @JayBaer for keynoting. Thanks also to @SMCKnox for all their hard work promoting it. This has been an inspiration to me and is another great example of the very important people I am meeting through Twitter.
I’ll close by saying that this time last year I also had many high notes–all due to Twitter: I met and engaged @ChrisBrogan who came to Memphis for a presentation (and rocked the house); I forged a true partnership with @AnneDGallaher and @GlenGilmore (who I work with everyday); Through the generosity of Anne Gallaher, I was invited to Hershey, PA and met the CEO of Ford Motor Co. in real life and had my picture taken with him. WOW factor. All of these important relationships because of Twitter. Can you dig it? I’m so amazed everyday by the power of Twitter and the quality people I am meeting daily. It’s not the content but the relationships that matter. Who are your Twitter contacts? Can you share your stories?
