Find a way to get back to it.

I've got to get back into marketing and public relations.

I attended a presentation by Peter Shankman on Social Media this week. Carol Arnott's group, Wine4Women, put this event on up in Wilmington.

Talk about a hyper guy who talks ninety miles a minute! And has tons of really good stuff to say about being online, being offline, being where your customers are, etc. The excitement I felt with all the ideas running through my head just confirmed, I've got to get back. I've got to get back to marketing and PR, my passion.

Everytime I speak with someone, even in passing, about marketing a business or stuff like that, I really get going with ideas. I start spitting out all those ideas running through my head and tell whomever it is I'm talking to - "Write this down. Hurry. There's more coming!" And they do. Write it down that is. And they listen. And then they ask why I'm not doing any marketing right now....why I'm not working with something that gets me so energized....and how my face lights up, how I'm smiling, how I'm talking ninety miles a minute...

What is your passion? Find a way to get back to it.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall

I had dinner with a friend who is going through some issues right now. And aren't we all in some way or another?

I told her I waded through my own issues by finding the courage to look at myself and be honest with myself. And then had the balls to show that to someone else.

However, this morning as I was looking at myself, I broke my mirror! So, where does that leave me? :-)

Everybody needs a little sunshine

I get my sunshine everyday in the form of my son's beautiful smile and contagious laugh. I wish you all a moment of pure joy. A moment of sunshine when your day is dark. If you don't have a child in your life, love the child within or even better, make a difference in a child's life.

Okay. I'm coming out of the closet - I am a blogger. I hope you find my insights and rantings interesting, if not at least, entertaining!

Going back to go forward

Happy new year!

One of my goals for 2010 was to continue with my education.

Tomorrow night I start one of my first classes in 2010. I am going back to school fulltime while working fulltime while being a fulltime, single mom.

Okay, yeah, alot of people do this everyday. But not everyone has such a special little boy like mine. :-) But I've gotten over my guilt of not being able to spend every waking moment with Alejandro.

It's for our future. And it's about time. And my son will be just fine spending a bit more time with Abuela, his cousin or Daddy. Plus, he likes the idea of mommy going to school since he goes to school.

Wish me luck!
