COACHING DENTISTS AND DENTAL PROFESSIONALS IN THE ART OF SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGY
What a beautiful and inspiring post @Lori The whole tone of the post is just filled with that sense of well being that you are experiencing. I am so happy for you that you have found this solid and grounded space within. And living in the moment!!! How awesome is THAT!! I really love the idea that well being is a journey...I believe that...it is just a matter of putting that into practice and loving the moments whatever they may bring. Your words are motivating for me and I am sure others...sitting in the proverbial grass and enjoying the sun on your face...what a beautiful image. Thank you so much for sharing!!

Great post @ChrisAbraham ! One that I will need to revisit to remind myself on those days when I hear crickets that persistence does indeed pay off. #confidence #conviction #stay-with-it-ness ...check, check and check...

I really love the term microinteraction...turns out, IMO, they can be far more powerful than the macroexperience. I'm more moved by the small exchanges in my day to day customer/client/patient service experiences than I am by the global experience. I am more prone to FB or Tweet or promote a business or experience based on my microinteraction than anything else. As an owner, I would like to think that I would be comfortable with handling a shared customer experience that involves an honest mistake to promote that sense of integrity that I strive to maintain.
Another great post @AnneReuss Thank you!

Hi @Lori ! I miss you and your wonderful community and need to be mindful about carving out more time for those people that I care about! The quote that you use by Joe Girard is impactful to me because, always, as I strive for success in pretty much anything I do, I have to constantly remind myself that it takes "one step at a time". I'm not sure if it's impatience that drives me to seek the escalator instead of the stairs so much as it is fear of failure and just wanting the hard stuff to be over with. Instead of "enjoying" (quotes because sometimes the enjoyment factor is questionable) the journey, I want the destination so that I don't have to face the potential of failure in the in-between steps. I'm not sure that I know what area of my life I enjoy the most success because I'm not sure what definition of "success" I should go by. I just know that there are activities and visions in my life that drive me more passionately than others but that this is always fluctuating.
Your consistency in writing fabulous articles never ceases to amaze me...you are so gifted, not only as a writer but as an insightful and thoughtful modern day "philosopher"!

Oh Barbara....HAPPY 3rd ANNIVERSARY!!! ♪♪♫♫♪ I am sending you beautiful celebratory music to make you smile as you move forward in your journey towards year 4, 5, 6 and on and on. The journey certainly has it rough patches (your speed bumps this year have been difficult) but they all have contributed to what makes @Late_Bloomers the beautiful, supportive, compassionate and insightful woman that she most definitely is! I'm so lucky to call you friend! <3 <3

Happy Anniversary to a VERY special friend! @Lori you are always "there" for myself (and others) even when you aren't aware of your "there-ness". I am forever #grateful that I found @LifeForInstance and its amazing hostess. Your blog has followed your journey AND equally important (I think) it has helped to guide the journey of your oh-so-amazing community!
You are loved! Here's to a future filled with finding our Happy Place and finding the joy in your wisdom....

@yvettepistorio @SocialMediaDDS @jasonkonopinski AND we can't forget to post it to Instagram!! Most important part of the process!! ;-)

@jasonkonopinski @SocialMediaDDS Hahaha...I can't let the world think that all I do is eat artisan cheeses, apple cultivars and wash it all down with the very best wines...I wouldn't even take me seriously ;-)
Between Vine and Instagram, I might as well keep my camera app open all day long and accept that I'm never going to get any work actually done...I'll just have pictures and videos of me looking like we work :-) Seriously though Yvette, this is a great post and I really like your suggestions. My office is in for a real treat today...can you say "cheese"??
@Lori I'm so happy that you had this realization today that all the while that you have been allowing your passion to be "fed", your passion was quietly nurturing your business. I think that this speaks to the idea that if we are allowed to express our passion in our work in any way that is possible, the work will seem less like "work" and the outcome may be, indeed, very rewarding...your business growing. It seems to me that it is ultimately a win/win!
Thank you Lori, for stopping by. You know how much I value your insight!!

First of all...your photos are quite crisp and dynamic so, I think you will have fun with your sophisticated SLR @Late_Bloomers !! But then, your photos are ALWAYS beautiful Barbara!!
I am writing your recipe for the delicious looking healthy drink for future reference. My morning drinks are more boring...just fruit in the house and some kale or spinach. I never thought of putting in cream or yogurt. OR pepper!! But it really does sound fabulous!!
Happy October 1st!!

One of my most favorite things about you @ginidietrich is how refreshingly honest and open you are. You share the experiences you've had, both good and bad, and demonstrated how each of these experiences has been a learning experience in your journey and how you keep moving forward. You are the poster child for making lemonade out of lemons and lemon meringue pie out of lemonade (I don't know...is that possible? I'm not a baker ;-) LOL ) Thank you!
6 months ago on What is the ROI of Blogging?
Hi @Lori ! So happy to have a free day to spend some time on your porch. I miss you. And, because this post is about friends, I wanted to start out with a possible third type of friend...the kind of friend that you meet (at any time in your life) and it feels like you have known them forever...I have a few of those kinds of friends (most especially and importantly, my husband) and you, Lori, are one of those for me. (sappy, I know) I LOVE getting together with my grammar school friends (we try to see each other at least once a month) because they have known me from the days when "me" was just developing and it feels so natural to be with them. I LOVE being with my more recent friends...they know what is going on in my business life and the stresses or joys that I am experiencing that they can completely relate to. And I love the contentment of having friends that you feel like you've known forever because it just feels like they will always be there no matter what.
Overall, by choice, I don't have a boatload of friends. Life is too demanding, chaotic and unpredictable to be able to nurture and tend to too many friendships. I love deeply the friends that are in my life now...I am a very lucky person!

I have had the privilege of being inspired by @ginidietrich and @belllindsay at @SpinSucks since 2009 when I made my first foray into the social media world. I have learned so much, I have laughed a lot, I have been moved...but mostly, I consider myself very lucky to call you friend and to be part (peripherally usually) of an intelligent and thoughtful (and thought provoking) community. Happy 7th birthday! May this be just the beginning of many more rewarding years for you!!
