“Eighty percent of success is showing up.” –Woody Allen
It seems so simple. Showing up sounds so easy. But at times it’s very hard.
My original thought about the above quote is that it relates to business, but how appropriate it is to being a parent, a spouse, a partner, or a friend.
This upcoming week I hope you’ll take an opportunity, or two, and show up at something that you probably wouldn’t attend usually.

A topic that I haven’t talked enough about is social media as is relates to privacy and crisis. So I was excited when I connected a few years ago with Chris Syme who focuses on practicing safe social media. She even wrote a book about it called Practice Safe Social: How to Use Social Media Responsibly to Protect Your Reputation and Build Loyalty (which I highly recommend by the way.)
Chris has become my social media expert when it comes to using social media in a crisis. I’ve been a fan of hers for a while and I’m so excited for you to hear our conversation. We cover a lot of ground and Chris shares so many great tips and suggestions. There are even a few that I needed to implement ASAP. Enjoy!
