2012 #SMTulsa Year in Review

What a year it was.  2012 was full of little successes and loads of fun.  In the tradition of this image shared by one of my Google+ friends, I decided to put together a year in review for Social Media Tulsa. We do so much through out the year, so it’s great to celebrate the successes and look back on how awesome it really was.




From Meetups and Tweetups to the second annual conference.  From social shower curtains to Tweet4toys. Take a look at the year that was 2012 for Social Media Tulsa!

Hope to see you in 2013!

Following the 2011, Prweb webinar, Big Lessons from a Small Business Expert, with Cheryl Lawson. Stacey Acevero and I hopped on a Skype call answer a few of the questions that came in during the session. Technical difficulties prevented the file to be edited properly so there sat all this great content.

The great thing about technology is that things change and get better. Now you can hear the questions and my answers. (Thanks to a Vodburner, Youtube, Spreaker mashup)

Everything is still true today. A couple of things have changed.
Vworker has recently been purchased by Freelancer.com

Other than that, I am very happy to have this interview has been revived.
