Did HR just like my photo?

Let’s be honest we have all done it or at least thought about it…is my company creeping on my social media accounts? Is this recruiter going to look me up on Facebook after this interview? These are the typical thoughts going through a professional’s mind living in the social media obsessed age. I can only […]

What is an entrepreneur?

“I am an entrepreneur” is a very complicated phrase to me. When I did an ironman and had a full time job in NYC that was entrepreneur-ish. When I pitched my 9-5 company to fund a non-profit that was entrepreneur-ish. Frankly, everyone can start a company and get an llc. What I would want to […]

October 31, 2009: My Last Day of Freedom

  November 1, 2009 was the day I got a Facebook. I am fairly certain I was the last person on the planet to get a Facebook as my parents were highly against a site that would release information about myself to the internet. Quite frankly, I am grateful it took them so long to allow […]

Black Friday ?!

Stalking or Finding?

I remember vividly how upset I was when my dog ran away when I was five.  Living in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, we scouted the acres of wood for her tiny, white thirteen pound body.  Luckily, she was found, and the Veterinarian recommended we insert a GPS tracking device in her so that […]

Finale

If this semester has taught me anything, its that Social Media’s uses go far beyond what we utilize it for. Coming into college, I was sure that I was a master of the cyber world. I was getting about 20 likes per tweet, 100 likes per instagram, and my facebook profile likes had me on […]
