COACHING DENTISTS AND DENTAL PROFESSIONALS IN THE ART OF SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGY
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!
3 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!!

Sweet Barbara....Sometimes you just have to listen to the universe and put the lists aside...if you needed a day to get nothing done, then you needed a day to get nothing done...Getting "nothing" done can end up being filled with all kinds of wonderful lessons! Don't be so hard on yourself!!
Sending you love and happiness....

In my opinion, it is exactly that hideous competitiveness (a tacit message we either covertly or overtly pass down to our young females) with which women judge each other that IS our downfall...our failure. There is NO other reason that we shouldn't be more respected, more empowered and in more leadership positions...period. I have never understood it and as I get older, it bothers me more than ever. Powerful and positive women like you @ginidietrich , like Sheryl Sandberg, like Marissa Mayer like so so many amazing women ( and of course @belllindsay !!) need to keep spreading the message. Don't give up...I believe this skewed course that we've been on CAN change with the right message. Thank you for another inspiring post GD. xoxo

@Late_Bloomers Hmmmmm....I think I'd rather be on a sandy beach, swimming in the sea and enjoying a cool drink for awhile! Engaging with nature seems like a good option at times! You paint such a beautiful image Barbara...thank you!

Well THAT made my day! Thank you @ginidietrich !! I have learned so much from you and your gift of genuine engagement is truly what sets you apart!
@ginidietrich I had a blast! AND, I'm pretty sure that they got just the right amount of spice and the chips were warm and salty!

Awesome! Just in time for my presentation to a dental supply company's sales team meeting on social media tomorrow! I'm pretty sure I've got your 6 points covered!!
@Wendy We can make it our mission to teach them all that it is NEVER too late!! Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comment!!

@Lori my guilty pleasure favorite romantic movie that is TOTALLY unrealistic is Love Actually. I have probably seen it 5 times and each time I get all teary eyed at the happy endings....none of them would ever happen in real life but this movie makes me all sappy and mushy. I can never remember quotes....just experiences.
