Social Media Attention Deficit Disorder

 

Hi. My name is Taccara and I am currently trying to become successful business owner. If you are too, then you might appreciate my current dilemma and recent discovery about myself. I have S.M.A.D.D. or Social Media Attention Deficit Disorder and I need HELP! If you have done any research or have been..well...alive, you'd know that many companies consider social media an inexpensive (and often times free, if you're savvy) way to engage your audience.

I was speaking to a friend today (we'll call her Brandy) and she was a bit discouraged about where she is in life and the fact that she is no where close to where she imagined she'd be 10 years ago. Brandy is 30 years old working as an administrative assistant making $29k/year in Chicago. However, Brandy is a college graduate with a degree in Accounting, a CPA and she has been a "business owner" since the age of 22 doing tax returns, bookkeeping and freelance accounting work for various individuals.

What is a FeMogul and How do You Pronounce it?

I am sure many of you have stumbled across iamoliviapope.com/FeMogul.com and thought, "Say What, Now?!" Well essentially, a FeMogul is (exactly how it's defined here) a Female Mogul-Fee-Mogul. A FeMogul doesn't want to be rich or famous. Those dreams are too easy. A FeMogul strives to be everything she, and every little girl before her, has dreamed to be...uniquely exceptional. Success is born there. But she doesn't stop there, she then reaches back and helps "FeMogul's in the making" become all they were destined to be.

5 Olivia Pope Traits to Embrace

Every time I watch an episode of ABC's Scandal, I start feeling the same way I felt when I would see my favorite singer in concert or my favorite actor/actress win an Oscar-- like "I could do it too!" What makes Olivia Pope so intoxicating and infectious is that, love her or hate her, she has characteristics that we all admire and would like to incorporate into our own persona. This made me begin to study her and identify the more admirable characteristics that I think a lot of women can learn from.

Go Ahead. Dance In Your Underwear.

I am the type of person that thinks about 90% of the time that I am awake and probably 50% of the time that I am asleep. My brain rarely shuts off which allows me to FEEL like I am always getting something accomplished but in reality, causes me to quiet the creative and FUN "me." One Saturday morning I was catching up on all of my shows and became childishly giddy when I saw this clip of Callie dancing in her underwear.Read more...
