Take Advice from Experts

At this point in my career I have determined that I cannot do it all. That Midwestern upbringing and solid work ethic certainly got our business going, but the more you learn, the more you realize what you don’t know. I have solved this dilemma by surrounding myself with experts. Among them is Maria Lettman, who sauntered into one of my networking meetings and spoke such words of wisdom, I barely let her out of my sight for the next ten months. Teach me! A journalist of high regard, Maria was a key member of the team that launched the Naples Daily News into its online presence. She is a social media expert and I gleaned whatever knowledge I could from Maria until Cargill courted her with a much better offer than AboveWater had.

Meanwhile, Birgit Pauli-Haack, web designer extraordinaire with Pauli Systems, has very patiently and brilliantly paved the way for me to revise my site and launch this blog. Today she told me I must claim my blog on Technorati. I do what my advisors tell me…hence this post.
