Social Media Update

March 26, 2010

A couple of times a month I am giving sessions on Social Media in general or specialized sessions on LinkedIn, Twitter… Most people are asking me for additional figures, presentations, YouTube clips, etc. So, I decided to step-up and share with you some interesting materials on Social Media.

Of course, the list of great stuff on Social Media is endless, so I am sharing four with you:

1. Did You Know 4.0 (check out version 3.0 too!)

2. Social networks around the world 2010 (Research by InSites Consulting)

3. Social Media in Plain English (, who else :-))

4. What the F**K is Social Media? One Year Later (check out the original too!)

As a Creator (Wealth Dynamics) and Lifehacker, I am always looking for shortcuts. Improving things and working on multiple projects at the same time is normal for me!

Today I realized I am overwhelmed again by the amount of “stuff” that’s on my todolist. And you know, the funny part is that most of it, I’ve put it there myself 🙂

This quick message is too let you  know that I am playing/working on a lot of things simultaneously. Like what? Ok, I hear you…here are some things that are going on in my world:

  • Tonia is starting her journey to Santiago. Only 2,800 km to walk. Step by step 🙂
  • Co-author of the Wealth Garden : texts and audio are finalized. Still need to post-produce the video.
  • Co-author of the Other 97 Percent : first chapter is in draft. From now on every couple of days a chapter needs to be written!
  • Updating this blog : duh! Every couple of days new stuff to share. I am attracting new (and more) visitors every week.
  • Twitter : I reached my goal of getting the first 100 followers without following anyone back! Yay! Ready to take the next step soon!
  • Giving trainings and workshops : at least 2/week. I love it!
  • Creating new training materials : creating new Genius Shortcuts and testdriving them
  • Public Speaking:  having fun in front of an audience. Book me too 🙂
  • Tour to Australia and New Zealand: is going great. A lot of preparation! Djee, underestimated the amount of work!
  • Creating promo materials : articles, summaries, flyers, copywriting, etc. A never ending list of things to do here!
  • Sports : playing volleyball, a couple of tournaments coming up at the end of June. Need to be in shape, right?
  • In Shape for September : planning the next steps and yes we are going for the 3rd edition this year!
  • Creating a DVD : postponed. Too much on my plate right now!
  • XL: member of the Transition Team and updating XL World regularly. Also creating little nuggets : video explanation of how to do stuff…
  • Reading books : my goal is to read 1 book/week. So far so good. I love it although it can be time consuming.

These are probably the most important activities so far. Did I forget anything? Probably…let know, so I can pick it up again 🙂

I am still having fun more than 85% of the time, but it’s time to re-analyse again what’s on my plate. Yes, time to contemplate again. And to update my actionplan! Even coaches have to do this 🙂

So, be back soon for more updates and Genius Shotcuts!
