This week I have traveled across the country to attend the Sydney Social Media Seminar. I am astounded by the amount of people that turn up at our Internet Marketing events. This weekend we have around 300 people in the room. Sydney has turned out in force and it makes me happy to know that people are opening up to Social Media and Internet Marketing. We are currently living in a so-called “financial downturn” and I do not accept a “slow-down” just because the media and politicians tell us so.
I accept that businesses and individuals are struggling. What I don’t accept is that we are expected to accept defeat and slow ourselves down. Life goes on and we are in charge of our own destiny – nobody else is! Don’t put your life on hold at any stage in life just because someone else says so! Learning about Social Media changed my life and I am fortunate enough to have the luxury to share it with lots of new friends in these seminars.
Sydney Social Media
I have chosen this name for a reason that is fueled with passion: Sydney Social Media Seminar. For those of you that know me personally, you know my life is fueled and governed by passion. I am passionate about Social Media and that is why I travel across Australia to places like Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and even overseas soon to London. I love to teach and share ways for people to break out of the Rat Race and become happier with more success in their life. Success comes in many different packages and it is not all about money. Money is just ONE tool in the equation of success. There are many more tools and as an Internet Marketer, I know that Social Media is a great, effective and very fun tool in that equation.
Next time I’m over this way, be sure to come along and see me at the next Sydney Internet Marketing event.
Why Social Media Rocks
I love this catch-cry: Social Media Rocks! I started using that phrase because it allows me to be more social with people across the world without having to invite everyone home for dinner. Using New Media Tools like Twitter, Digg and Facebook, allows me to interact with like-minded people who enjoy the same things as me in life. I actually don’t apply Internet Marketing through Social Media very much at all. I simply use it to build rapport with people. It is no different to making friends in real life – just it’s online. oh yeah, and it’s fun!
New Media Lifestyle
Last time I traveled to Sydney, I had my wife and 2 sons with me. We were on our way to Vanuatu and Social Media played a big role for us while we stayed in Port Vila, Vanuatu. I took my sons Scuba Diving and blogged about it. We gave it some publicity through Twitter, Facebook and Digg. The results were great and my New Media friends got to share this experience with me. We went to Vanuatu with some coaching clients (friends) and we had some Twitter / Facebook / Digg sessions around the pool and on the beach. We had lots of fun and enjoyed the occasional Vanuatu Beverage along with our Internet Marketing sessions.
Life is good. It is what we make of it. The only person that can make a substantial difference to your life is YOU. Take charge, have fun, enjoy and share with your friends. I love it and am making lots of friends both on and offline. I hope you will join me soon on any of the Social Media Sites I’m on. Here is a short list of some New Media Sites you can find me at:
Once again, I’d like to thank all of the 300 people that attended the Sydney Social Media Seminar this weekend. And thank you for reading my blog 🙂
Until next time, have an outstandingly social day.
