It’s obvious when talking to Melissa Saigh that she absolutely loves being a Mom!  Her love for Linna also pours into her Minnesota Baby blog, and her social media sites. Writing has been a passion for Melissa since High School, at the college newspaper, and with her first blog, Missi Made.  On Missi Made she talked about fashion and then everything-wedding when she was planning her own.  She knew she had hit on something great when an Oprah producer contacted her for a referral on a stylist, after seeing her wedding day hair pics on Missi Made!

The Nanny Nine: General Mills

I recently attended a local Social Media event, and sat in on Kevin Hunt’s presentation.  I’ve been a long time user of General Mills brands, and was very curious about their Social Media Manager, and how the brand was utilizing the various Social Media venues.  By the end of his presentation I was very happy with what I had seen and heard, and I also could tell Kevin is very passionate about what he does.

The Nanny Nine: Shakopee Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau

It wasn’t until last year that I joined our local Chamber of Commerce.  To be honest, up until that point I wasn’t quite sure if there was a need.  But then I hooked up with the Chamber online, via Facebook and Twitter.  They were very responsive, informative and fun.  After attending an event, and meeting the Chamber staff and other members, I was sold!  I’ve not only made great business connections, I’ve gained a wonderful network of colleagues and friends.

The Nanny Nine: PowerSellingMom.com

Danna and I had known each other online long before we got the chance to meet in person 1 1/2 years ago.  I have always admired her knowledge of everything eBay, and also her personality and willingness to help people in so many ways.  Danna has been selling on eBay since 1997, and in 2007 she formed PowerSellingMom.com She is a recipient of the eBay Hall of Fame Award, and is a strong participant in the eBay Community.   She is also an eBay Education Specialist, as well as a Trading Assistant.  Those are just a few of the hats Danna wears – as I mentioned. she has vast knowledge of all things eBay 🙂

Danna is as vibrant in person as she is online.  I found our discussions to be very engaging, and thought provoking…and full of smiles and laughter.  She is a very caring person, which is evident in her personal life as well as with her customers.
