A few days ago, Indie Beauty Network member Jamila White of the Ecommerce Diva told me that Mia Jackson, a marketing specialist and friend of hers from the DC area was coming to Charlotte this week. I immediately connected with Mia on Twitter and we had dinner together last night. With young kids, it's sometimes a challenge for me to get away during the dinner hour, but thanks to a wonderful husband and business partner, it worked out last night.
Here we are pausing to smile and show off a handmade Pink Komen For the Cure sugar scrub by IBN Member Roberta Perry of Scrubz Body Scrub (New York) and a handmade Vanilla Lavender scented sachet in by IBN Member Rachel Lane of Barcelona Bath & Body (Texas). Are we having fun or what??!
Mia is the CEO of Doro Marketing. As you know, I am passionate about the importance of using new media tools to successfully market Indie Businesses so it was wonderful when Mia allowed me to interview her on camera about some of her tips for people who are new to social media. You can watch the video at my YouTube page. Mia has some encouraging words for people who feel a little overwhelmed with all of the options.
I'm so excited to have made a new friend, so I want to remind you of how important it is to connect with people in person as often as you can. It's hard to get away from all the things you have to do. We all have that challenge. But I've never regretted showing up in person to make a new Indie Business connection, and these days, when you do that, not only do you have a new business connection, you also have a friend. You can connect with Mia on Twitter.
