Limitations Inspire Creativity

Change is exciting, Change sucks, Change is rapid, Change is scary, Change is constant! To embrace this rapid pace of change, we must embrace a mindset that allows change and create strategies that redefines what success looks like. Snapchat content disappears after it’s viewed. Periscope broadcasts can only can be viewed for 24 hours. Facebook Live is live unpredictable video…. Digital dinosaurs look at these as limitations while digital natives and those with a Millennial Mindset believe these challenges create amazing possibilities. It’s time for business leaders, marketing managers and content creators to shift their mindset, embrace change and leverage these limitations to create new strategies and goals that redefine what success looks like - to the benefit of their communities.

An Interview with Brian Fanzo – Perfection is a Fairytale
Brian is someone that I’ve admired for the last couple of years. I happened to stumble upon Brian on Periscope, where he was discussing using live video and high level methods of using newer social platforms. Brian knew what he was talking about at a technical level, but he also really had heart. I think that is what attracted me to subscribing and following Brian around the Internet. He not only knows video and social media like Snapchat, he also lives it in a meaningful way.
Why the Speaking Industry Needs a WakeUp Call!
Ok, this might be a post many would tell me not to write, since I’ve recently been sharing a few humblebrags about paid speaking events I’ve been booking recently. But as you might have learned from a post I wrote earlier this year, “Will the Real Social Media Leaders Please Standup,” I care much more about leading and inspiring change than sticking with the status quo because of my personal success.
