If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ or YouTube you have surely heard about my Mission Ferris Bueller Care Package Campaign.  Our goal is to send a huge variety of items (necessities to fun) for 100 Troops and Civilians serving at a base in Afghanistan.  I have a Colonel friend who is stationed there, and these men and women are in his command.

You may ask, why name it Mission Ferris Bueller? It is a tribute to the classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which represents a “break from reality, having fun, surprises, impacting many people in a good way, while appreciating the things and people that mean the most to you.”

We are asking people to contribute with items or cash to purchase items on our Wish List. One of our very generous contributors is Andrew Angell, Founder of Angell Eye Consulting Services.  [Read more…]

LinkedIn Adds Banner Customization

This morning I saw that LinkedIn is now giving customization and branding options for your background banner at the top of your Profile page.  This is a change that was bound to come, following what many of the other Social Media sites have already been doing.  Nice to see LinkedIn offering this feature!

You can choose one of their many designs, but you know my recommendation – make your own, be unique & true to your Brand!  Graphics should be under 4 MB with a size of 1400 x 425 to fit best.  I’ll be working on mine later in the week.  I would love to see what you come up with for yours!

Join me at the 1st annual Midwest eCom Conference – plus special discount!

I’ve been to many conferences over the years for sellers. Those with a heavy emphasis for online sellers (eBay, Amazon, websites) have always been out of state, and out of the Midwest region. If that has stopped you from attending you no longer have an excuse!

Join me at the first annual Midwest eCom Conference, July 24- 25 for two full days of information, networking and fun! It is conveniently located near the MSP Airport, across from the Mall of America.

I am proud to be kicking off the event as the first speaker, with “Social Media Basics and Beyond – No Bull” I will not bore you with loads of statistics, and fancy info-graphs, but will be providing information that is vital to your use of Social Media.

In the line up of speakers there will be discussions on a variety of topics, including shipping, eBay, Amazon FBA and tax issues, multi-channel growth, thrifting and more!

At $99 this is a fantastic value for a conference, especially since lunches are provided! Lucky for you I have been given a last minute deal to make it an even better value: use promo LASTCALL and your cost will only 49.99!

For more details on the conference & to register, please visit their website http://www.midwestecom.com/

My Week at the U.S. Army War College National Security Seminar

U.S. Army War College National Security Seminar

U.S. Army War College National Security Seminar

Little did I know that my overly inquisitive nature, and my love of Social Media, would get me nominated to attend the National Security Seminar at the U.S. Army War College! Long story short leading up to my nomination: our Army National Guard daughter was at AIT (Advanced Individual Training) at Fort Gordon. I met the Colonel of her Brigade, Colonel Stephen Elle, thru the admin of their Facebook page. Besides other similarities, we are both Minnesota Vikings fans! While my husband and I were at Ft Gordon for her graduation we met and chatted with the Colonel in his office. He mentioned the National Security Seminar and I was immediately interested! I honestly felt it was a huge long shot to be selected, but like I keep telling others “If you don’t try, you won’t know.” [Read more…]
