This morning I found a package from Laurie Shook of Social Media Dallas.
You know the feeling when you get an unexpected gift from a old friend? That’s how I felt.
Laurie had taken the time to collect quotes from various Social Media Dallas members, print them out and stick them in a Scotty Vest. This vest has many pockets, so there were 11 cool quotes placed in 11 pockets.
Two of these pockets had a crisp $100 bill with a quote from Benjamin Franklin. And one had a quote from Abraham Lincoln, accompanied by a $5 bill.
Just imagine if I got a quote from Salmon P. Chase, who is on the $10,000 bill.
In addition to speaking at Social Media Dallas (where we discussed the “Facebook for $1 a day” technique, I had the honor of teaching two SIG (Special Interest Group) classes. We covered the power of checklists, the 9 Triangles (core of everything we know), and how to build a proper social media plan.
The following months had Scott Monty and Brian Fanzo as featured speakers, so we’re in good company.
Thank you, Laurie, for being an amazing host and making me feel so welcome.
Looking forward to the continuation of our training in Dallas!
I’ve always said re: #socialmedia, I’d rather be the puppet master vs the puppet. Thanks @dennisyu for reiterating 🙂 @sm_dallas #smdallas
