I’m ticked Off!

Here’s my ticker at #empireave, https://www.empireavenue.com/PROMISESEED5. Why I’m ticked off is because at least 10 people should go and follow me, but maybe just one will. And that’s to bad because I’ve come across so many profiles in the social media arena that are begging for attention, and simply are just too lack luster to gain any type of momentum. At EA that’s what the game is all about virtual promotion with virtual money to build real valued social media presence that brings in real money.

I’m a #notforprofit, but I need this more than any other entity on the Ave. Learning how to invest and take risk without the pressure of loosing everything is just plain old #professional development. I’ve been on the Avenue for a little over 6 weeks. Before this I had no idea whether or not I was accomplishing anything, and just hoping someone would like or comment my material. And just to be frank my online donations were zero, facebook was meaningless, twitter had no cherp, and at google I was just going in circles. As a #faithbased not for profit I am into the planting on good ground, and running #missions is my #Promise Seed Brand. EA has increased my social presence at least 30 or 60, and even 100% value in this new network.

This weekend there is a great event for newcomers and newbies at Empire Avenue called #Pendapalooza where the EA Stock Market is on free fall. Again, I’m hoping at least 10 of my #Wordpress followers will follow my ticker and snatch up all this “Free” exposure. Give your social media time spent the added boost to get real clients and meet your goals. You can’t beat free, and you don’t want to “Tick me Off” :-). So here’s my ticker again, follow the link, sign up if this is your first visit, and start seeing some action in your networks. I will feel better and you will also.

Perspectives: Blogging About Autism

Congratulations to all these bloggers who have the courage to share these insights about living with Autism or Loving someone who has Autism. I am a member of this community and proud to say I have loved someone and lived with someone with Autism for 32 years. Thanks for sharing…..

The WordPress.com Blog

Back on Autism Awareness Day, Katie Tackettwrote a post on Thought Catalog to share her feelings and raise awareness of what it’s like to parent Aubrey, her three-year-old daughter who has severe autism:

How can we expect that snotty woman behind us in line at the grocery store to know that our daughter is not just an out-of-control three-year-old, and it’s also not us just being ineffective parents? The truth is, we can’t expect people to take autism seriously unless they know what it’s like to love someone with severe autism or be someone with severe autism.

Living With Autism

Over at Living With Autism, blogger, teacher, and poet Liz shares the challenges and celebrations of caring for her adult son Dylan, who has autism. Liz reflects on early interventions for Dylan and the risks and rewards of new experiences.

Through her poetry, Liz considers how…

Find a “Micro-Mentor” for Your Next Short-Term Project

No one person can know everything….so we all need these #micro-mentors.

Cperky's Blog

The free-range scope of most mentoring engagements presents a time commitment that prevents having more than one or two protégés at a time. This puts suitable mentors in short supply for young workers.

To improve the likelihood of getting the best possible mentor, ask for a shorter engagement (think really short, as in, less than a month), or a micro-mentoring arrangement.

  • Target the right person.    Look for someone expert enough who hasn’t lost the ability to connect with someone at your level. Use your network of peers, your manager, or LinkedIn to find someone suitable.
  • Be specific about what you hope to achieve.    Set one or two targeted goals to focus on, identify ways to measure success, and define the time commitment. This will help you stand out in stark contrast to those asking for undefined mentorships.
