Growing my network

I just have to share a couple of really great moments from yesterday! Really great in that my little JQ business is doing pretty darn good, I’d say…. a bit scary in that my little JQ business is doing pretty good. I’ll admit it’s uncanny at how quickly some things are happening for me, when I’ve honestly been minimal effort into marketing myself, aside from blogging a couple times a week and starting my Facebook page. And here I am with two fun pieces of news for you.

Firstly, yesterday morning when I woke up, I was greeted with the notification that my Facebook page (which I started in early February) had gotten its 100th like! I promptly posted a Thank You picture (which I created a few days ago as I approached the milestone, as any good SM manager would!). Yay!



And secondly, last night, I headed off to local bookstore and cafe Books & Co. to film a Shaw TV spot called “The Lunch Counter” with locals Garth Frizzell (CEO of Terra Cognita Software Systems and City of Prince George City Councillor) and Shauna Harper (Live Work PG Online Marketing Specialist). They’re both very knowledgeable and do so many great things around PG, I’ll just link to their LinkedIn profiles so you can see for yourself!

Shaw's The Lunch Counter

Filming “The Lunch Counter” at Books & Co. with Garth and Shauna

The segment involves a round table discussion, tonight’s being on – you guessed it – social media. The producer asked us her first question and we didn’t stop talking until another producer cut in and said “Ok guys we’re at 27 minutes.” I’m pretty sure we could have talked all night! So it will air on Shaw in a couple weeks, and we’re trying to convince them to put the whole thing online (other than the teasers I linked to above) – I’d love to share it with you all! It was a great time and hopefully we can get together to do another unofficial version of it soon!

Put this day in a week which still holds a social media presentation and three client meetings and you’ve got one busy JQ!
