I said it once and I will say it again; Get your game up. That’s right; you think you know business, you think you know the way things work?  Social Media is exploding right in front of your eyes. You have a nice resume, business plan and marketing strategy? Think again! It’s a true game changer in the world of business and work.  And you just thought it was for dirty pics, gossip and keeping up with Kim and them.

Look at this article about LinkedIn. That site is on the rise. Networking, it’s all about you who know. If you didn’t know before, you know now. Clean up your Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn accounts.  The day of the resume is numbered, its going by way of the dinosaur. I read several articles this week about how your internet image is going to be the wave of the future and it’s starting now. I’m not saying you won’t need a resume, but its need to be on your LinkedIn profile. You need a webpage with your bio and picture on it.  These things are coming and coming fast. Remember when you could get away with having a business without a webpage? Those days are gone, if you don’t have a webpage, an email, and social media presence, you will be left in the dust.

Next, for all you marketing folks, now I will admit I am late on this one, just like I was late on the power of the twitter. I never thought about how you can make money using Twitter until I began using it. Most folks misuse it. Baby, Baby, Baby ohh, You should check out how this young man used his twitter power; also these folks that get paid to tweet. Look at the going rate!  This is the memo, you have been advised!
