Remember back in the “old days” when the closest you could get to your favorite celebrity was to pay $15 to be a member of his or her official fan club, which may get you a signed poster and a whole lotta wishful thinking?
The days of having Six Degrees of Separation between you and virtually anyone are long gone! Social media sources like Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram have taken us waayyy beyond the National Enquirer level connectivity.
It’s really amazing how small social media has made this great big world!
Now, I will get the occasional response to a tweet or comment I’ve made on some big-time person’s post or video or photo…and it will thrill me like it’s the 80’s and I’m in line to see a glimpse of Michael Jackson or Madonna!
This handy new rule-of-thumb applies to so much more than celebrities, too! Job hunting. Getting your news out about a new product. Sharing your thoughts on current events. Getting connected to the people you most need to hear you message is literally finger strikes away.
Networking at it’s most efficient.
So, my question for you is this: How are YOU going to close that gap between you and the people who can help take your ideas to the next level?
**Hustle makes it happen, so let’s dance!**
Until next time, my friends…
Make it a great day,
