The Best Thing About Social Networking

It allows you to talk to people you never thought possible. Our clients are learning that too. The first time Steve Case, the founder of AOL, answered me on Facebook, I thought it was an imposter. How could this be possible? It became possible because I asked Steve a question that he was interested in and a dialog occurred.

I really felt important. That self confidence helped me reach out to a few other VIP's. Before I knew it, I secured a panel of speakers for a conference I was working on. Before social networking, it would have taken me 10 times the amount of time to get this panel together. Or, it may never have happened because I just couldn't reach the right people.

SN made me a hero.
