I agree with you there and I think that Onlywire is a good tool to get out into the other sites out there! LinkedIn I think is a really really good one also!

Thanks Golda for reminding us that it isn’t about being seen and heard from everyone on the internet, it is about networking and building relationships within your niche and cultivating and growing your busines through those efforts. Every fish starts out as a guppie and then grows to be bigger, right? or something like that!! Don’t know my fish very well 😀

Hi Lynn! This is what I know about fish…I LOVE to eat it. You are correct though, it’s about the quality of the relationships that we build not the quantity. Thank you so much for your comment. Until next time…

Golda,
My mother always used to talk about the “big fish, little pond” metaphor. I appreciate the reminder and will take it to heart. And congratulations for your great time management in making a video while waiting for your dentist appointment. Very resourceful!
Take care,
Adam

Hi Golda,

Facebook is certainly very saturated!! I can certainly see some benefits from using some of the smaller social networks!

Thank you for the tip!

Emma 🙂
