My Best Klout Perk!

If you use social media for business and you’re not on Klout, you really need to be. Klout looks at your social media profiles and measures the amount of influence you have. So if you’re doing social media for your business, you’re likely to have a high influencer score. And the higher your influence, the better Klout Perks you get offered!

And then I realized that we only get one chance to live our lives. And that while if often feels that we have no control over what happens to us, the truth is that we have control over everything. We just have to be willing to recognize it before it’s too late. On March 18th, 2015 I’m holding a free Entrepreneur Workshop in Cary, North Carolina to share exactly how I made the journey from … Read More
