Featured on Chinese Tech News – Twitter vs. Weibo
While some may not believe, I survived to successfully enter China and speak about Twitter and Facebook promotion (amazing because the government forbids and blocks it).

Flat out, no questions asked, more and more, you need social media in order to compete in today’s …
Making My Mother Cry
I think mothers always get a bit emotional during their child’s birthdays…remembering the birth and thinking how their son/daughter has grown over time.

Do We All Live Fair Tales Lives?

Crazy Dream -What may have kept me at my NY job!
I’ve been thinking a lot, and with my big shift from fixed office to coworking and freelancing, I think back to my time four years ago at Deutsche Bank and when I put in my notice to leave my job. My manager I guess kind of expected it, I had already filed with them (per SEC regulations) that I had …
