One of the most exciting aspects of social media is how a connection can lead to a friendship, a business opportunity or just the ability to connect with someone that has shared experiences and abilities. Teddy Burriss would fall under the categories of friend, colleague and in some ways a respected mentor. I have been friends with Teddy for a couple of years now, after initially connecting virtually on Twitter. Thankfully, we have expanded our social media relationship to one that has included meeting face-to-face whenever possible. I encourage you to do that as often as you can; meet face-to-face with your connections.
Earlier this year, Teddy reached out to me and asked if I would share a social media success story for a book he was authoring. I am no fool, of course I said YES to his request! What followed was a book I highly recommend; and its not because I am featured in it, but because it is a valuable resource on social media and networking. Success Using Social Media hits the nail on the head: Start By Building Relationships!
Click the link, buy or download the book and start building those relationships! I encourage you to start by connecting with Mr. Burris.
