It’s the first week of school!
With it, comes a certain amount of swelling excitement as I optimistically contemplate the knowledge potential we will be unlocking over the next 12 weeks.
A passionate student of all things Social; I am continuously seeking out content that offers an upper hand within the industry. As a 32 year old mother of 3, I’ve had a late start to the social scene. For the past 3 years I’ve been playing catch-up in a traditional underdog format. The hours, effort and dedication that I’ve zealously applied to social are sure to land a solid knockout against any opponent.
But, there is always room for improvement.
One of my top role models, Gary Vaynerchuck, explains the boxing puns that I picked up after reading his book “Jab, Jab, Jab right hook.” The book propelled me onto a social path that has stimulated a habit of thinking so outside the box and stretching so outside my comfort zone; I’m confident in my abilities to bring intense value to any organization.
Thanks Gary. Still waiting for the chance to connect with you on the ask Gary V show. But I’m a patient gal. I know the chance will come!
I consider myself a lifelong learner and am determined to pursue new avenues to gain further insight to stay ahead of the social marketing scene. I’m exhausting my remaining VA benefits to earn a graduate level certificate; gaining technical skills to keep an edge and grow in my field.
More about me here…
But the following is what I’m most eager to get started with.
This class, Introduction to Multimedia Communications, is one of the remaining two I need to secure my goal. However, I’m pretty stoked about the real world knowledge we stand to gain from the experience and insight our professor and TA bring to the table.
I am also excited to connect with other amazing social experts to gain perception and build bonds that last through our careers.
Because I truly believe…
As of now I am a self-taught social analyst. I’m excited (and maybe even a bit gitty) about learning the technical skills surrounding social analytics. I never saw myself as a numbers girl. In fact, I’ve always hated math. But when it comes to analyzing data, something about that just excites me to my core.
I mean, with analytics gone are the days of having a good idea, paying out the nose to see it play out, and then crossing your fingers to hope you can determine some sort of ROI.
Analytics is a game changer that will save companies millions and eventually probably even billions, and I’m passionate about finding new ways to deploy analytics in a user friendly manner.
Let’s get started!
