That One Time I Rebranded Myself With Pizza Sauce

by Molly Jo Realy @MollyJoRealy

Hey. It happens.

So, the funny thing is, I teach people to find what their brand is and stick with it.

  • What do people appreciate the most about you?
  • What are your strengths?
  • What are you most comfortable doing/teaching/sharing?
  • What makes you happy?

And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like … Oh, wait. Sorry. Sinatra in my head. [Note to self: Take the fedora off the shelf.] Ahem. What I was saying was, I sort of took my own advice … and tossed it aside. But like a well-tossed … read the rest. . .

Presents for Your Social Media Manager

by Molly Jo Realy @MollyJoRealy

Whether you do it yourself, for yourself, for others, or have others do it for you, social media is a great tool to connect you with the world.

But we all know it can take up a bit of time. [I guess that’s why they call it “management”.]

Now, I’m not exactly an expert, but I’m also not-not one either. In my ventures with social media, there are a few things I’ve learned that make it easier.

Social Media Saturday: Now Serving with Flavor

by Molly Jo Realy @MollyJoRealy

Are you serving up your media with flavor?

I know, you’re thinking, “What the heck is that?!”

Lemme tell ya with an example.

Five Things Friday: National Coffee Day

by Molly Jo Realy @RealMojo68

Frankly, My Dear . . . : Five Things Friday

Let’s just start by agreeing any celebration that includes coffee is awesome, am I right? I mean, I celebrate every day with coffee. But to actually have an official reason? Have mercy!

I’m an experiential person. That means I don’t just go through life, I live it. Fully, wonderfully, scarefully (is that even a word?). I feel it, my body absorbs it, my mind is constantly processing and connecting dots. And, yes. Sometimes making up the dots to connect.

But coffee. It’s just perfect. In celebration of National Coffee Day, here are some … read the rest. . .
