Is it hot enough for you yet? Well, I’m really loving this hot weather to be honest. I hate winters and in Richmond, VA we just had a brutal one this year; I’m sure we weren’t the only ones.

I’m not sure if it’s because I’m from the Caribbean, but I do enjoy this hot, sticky weather.

Getting into the elevator at the office, a co-worker tells me, –“Hey, have you been? I haven’t seen you in a while.”  I can’t help not to chuckle and responded, “Yes I know.  I haven’t heard from you in a long time, so I’m guessing your computer is running smoothly.”

Social Trash Representation

Being “Social” or using the tools of “social media,” or been active in “social networking,” is the new way of doing business, mainly for small and medium-size businesses, and it is here to stay. Well, not so new, but it’s what’s hot right now. For the purpose of this blog, I’m just going to refer to social media, social network as “Social.”
