2017: New Year, New You, New Us

2017: New Year, New You, New Us

I love the new year. It’s a great time to hit the restart button and plan all the things you want to do in life and business. I’m not going to lie, I don’t always see some things to the finish line, but that’s OK because life happens! If you’re not about setting resolutions, that’s fine, but I love partaking in the tradition my own way, so I do. Let’s get to it!

Choosing the Right Social Media Platform

Choosing the Right Social Media Platform

Friday I saw a post that made me feel old. 

“Congrats Clarissa! You’ve been on Facebook for 12 years!”

12…years? That’s a little over a decade.

And I’ve been on Facebook that long? 

I remember thinking Facebook was a dating site. And I remember Facebook was “The Facebook.”

I remember putting my class schedule on there and it was by invite only.  

I remember a lot of things about Facebook when it started and the changes it went through (like how angry I was when it all you needed was an email. “THE DOWNFALL OF FACEBOOK!” I yelled.)

But has it really been 12 years? 

In those years, other social media platforms have come (Twitter) and gone (Myspace…technically). 

Now, social media is a way companies, brands, and bloggers do business. It’s easy to think you need to be ON ever single platform to market yourself and be successful on it.
