Off We Go!

Off We Go!

The time has come for the birdie to leave the nest.  Rochelle DeLong took me under her wing and brought me into Consilio in March to not only help her company learn, promote and market with social media but to have a place for small businesses to turn to for help getting into social media that wouldn’t cost them an arm and leg.

She helped me release the fear that I have had about opening up my own company and start helping the people step into the pool with all this social computing “stuff”!  🙂

Ideally, I would love to be inside a company and really get my teeth into their soul and bring it to the masses…but those positions are only just now starting to emerge and corporations and still skeptical of adding a full time social media gal to their payroll.  Which we all know is completely foolish…better to be on the 8 ball than behind it at this point.  IMHO.  🙂  But, let me say, there are smart companies out there that are hiring – good job!

Tuesday is my last day.  Rochelle and I are working out who goes “with me” etc.  There are things that she can do, things that I can do & we will be working that out.  I will still be working for her as their internal social media gal doing strategy, management & rallying for them.  I will also be part of her network of contractors that makes her & her company just absolutely amazing.

Her business model is to help small businesses with the thinking that outsourcing is the best model.  Do what you are good at…and don’t worry about the things you are not.  But at the same time she teaches you to be aware, be a smart business owner & learn how to grow yourself & your business to reach your goals.  She is not a coach for your business, she is a paramedic & a neurologist.

Thank you Rochelle, I couldn’t ask for a better 4 months of work to learn more about myself as a human being, a parent, a wife and a friend.  You make people be good at being human.

I am going to keep this short (but not Twitter short) and sweet today of who I think you should add to your follow list on Twitter.

@RochelleDelong  Yes, she is my boss here at Consilio…but she is just an amazing woman!  She is creating a space for working moms to do it all & be damn good at it!  Why can’t we have it all?  Why can’t we be the mom that wipes noses one day & the next be consulting with CEO’s? Move over bacon, we just brought home dinner!

@BoiseHole This is run by one of my other favorite people @LGM1 (aka: Chris Blanchard), but this term & campaign started about 3 1/2 years ago by Tac Anderson & other crue’ members (of the now non-existing, in name only) BlueLine Marketing.  There was a blog, stickers and some buzz…so-so-so-so-so sad that this is still a hole.  I say make it a cute little native grass & plant park for all downtowners to enjoy year round.

@30RockNews Just because I think that Tina Fey is one of the funniest people out there! And someone told me I looked like her one time – so you know she is just a hot Mama! 😉
