You Have Been Spotted!

These days I put a lot more thought behind where I spend my very hard earned dollars. I'm so tired of shopping at places where they make you feel like you should be thanking them for letting you spend your money there, or better yet they don't acknowledge you at all. As a Lifestylist® ,my mantra is Your Life. Your Style Your Way. It should be about you, the consumer not me. Today I had a wonderful experience at a store, and I wanted to share some of what they are doing and why I'll be going back because of that experience.

7 For All Mankind Hosts a Summer Soiree

I bought my first domain names when we were still using dial up connections and no one had a clue what to do with a name after you bought it. Again I have been very fortunate to have great advisers around me and because of them I own some very powerful domain names.

Most of my clients are on shoestring budgets, so introducing them to the power of social media and how it can help them develop their brands and businesses was a great way to help them stretch their marketing dollars.

So what is a Social Media Lifestylist? That would be me…
