@ggSolutions123  I think it was a little venting but really it was more about communicating what I think is a real issue. Businesses are paying money to hear experts give them information to run their businesses. I think they need to know the truth and engagement isn't one size fits all...not even close! Thanks :)

@ScottAyres  Scott. I don't know if jealous is the word, but eh...you are entitled to your opinion. I don't believe in lashing at individuals because that serves no purpose. I believe in sharing ideas and practices. And I suppose since it is an article I wrote that it is my opinion. I certainly didn't allude to this being fact based? Look, for me it comes down to being who you say you are.  I don't believe engagement is the key for every business and I don't call individuals out. However, everyone is entitled to an opinion and each day when we get out of bed we get to decide how we live our lives. 


Thanks for your feedback. Have a great day!

@kerijaehnig  Keri - I'm just trying to raise awareness. I neither claim to be an amazing engager or a rock star lol, but I do like to help businesses get things done. In some cases engagement isn't necessary. Always appreciate your support!

@Lauren de Vlaming  Lauren I think we agree on your first point. And so long as they acknowledge their intent I'm good with it. I think we agree in principle across the board, just don't preach what you don't intend to practice :)

@JohnLusher  The big question we have run into after discussing this is ... even if the sheep do turn their back, are their always more sheep? Nevertheless, I like the way you live your word. That is what I keep trying to focus this conversation on. :)

@peoplefw  Lynn what a great add and discussion both here and on FB. Keep doing what you are doing because it works. You definitely have my attention. 

The key as I've been saying throughout my comments across multiple streams is that what bugs me more is manipulation and deception. Just live your word, don't play games... Tell people straight. Be helpful etc. If you don't want to do those things then don't make the claims. It really is that simple. Thanks Lynn :)

@RyanKBiddulph  Ryan - you do a great job and if you are educated your clients that it is key to their strategy then it is good to show that type of example. As mentioned I don't preach engagement the way many others do. I always educate clients to focus on their audience and their targets because it is really noisy in the social world. Thanks!

@TomPick1  we hit this in the stream - I think we all have limitations. I don't hear you shouting from the stage that people have to engage therefore you are just you.... :)

@James_Madison  Hi James - I actually wrote that Micro Influencer post - this is my company site and MillennialCEO is my blog.  I like a lot of what Sam and Danny have to say although I will say with complete confidence that I didn't get this from them, although it sounds like we are tracking similarly with our ideas. 

Thanks for sharing and commenting.
