Shareology

Happy 7th Anniversary to Shareology! July 25, 2016

I started the blog Shareology on July 26, 2009.  After the five-year anniversary, I quietly put the blog into a two-year recess.  So it’s July 26 yet again and time to say a few words in commemoration.

The topic? Networking Nirvana!

Minneapolis-St. Paul is a leading hub of technical companies and workers.  It also has an active social media community.  I’ve received two certifications in social media since Shareology began; however, my best learning has come from attending networking events here in the Twin Cities.

Here’s my salute to the organizations I currently find most educational:

  1. Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis-St. Paul is closing in on its 93rd meeting in September. That means 2017 will see the 100th meeting of the nation’s largest Social Media Breakfast group!  http://www.smbmsp.org/  @SMBMSP

 

  1. There is also the October 15 Minnesota Blogger Conference to look forward to! http://www.mnbloggerconference.com/ @MNBlogCon

 

  1. Minnesota Analytics has a myriad of yearly events scheduled. I’m looking forward to the August 24 FARCON with an emphasis on Financials and Retail at the Carlson school. http://minneanalytics.org/  @MinneAnalytics

 

  1. MinneStar offers MinneDemo several times a year, with my favorite MinneBar in spring. I’ve presented three times at Minnebar and love roaming the halls of Best Buy’s first floor, looking for new knowledge with geeks and nerds of every stripe. http://minnestar.org/  @MinneStar

 

  1. One of the best monthly breakfast is Business Leaders Breakfast Forum. I have heard Paul Douglas, Sam Richter, Andrew Eklund and Anne Pryor at Lurie, LLP. Pam Borton is next up August 12.    https://www.luriellp.com/events/business-leaders-breakfast-forum-5/ @LurieLLP

 

  1. My latest favorite is StartUp Grind held at Coco and featuring leaders of the entrepreneurial community in Minneapolis-St. Paul. https://www.startupgrind.com/events/details/startup-grind-minneapolis-presents-tom-salonek-intertech#/  @StartupGrindMN

 

Well, that’s my latest list of favorite events in the Cities.  Here’s to Networking Nirvana!

Shareology hits the cover of Businessweek!!! June 3, 2012

…along with 11 other individuals….telling a positive story about persistence!

A couple of thoughts before I send you to the article and three pictures…

A quote from the article, on newsstands this week:

“Each story is unique, yet there are common themes: feelings of uselessness, the disturbing ease with which one’s professional identity slips away, the humiliation of asking family or friends for a loan, and, finally, the rewards of adaptability and persistence.” 

Shareology did not experience the first three above; she is a huge believer in persistence!!

When you click on the pictures, mine is in the bottom row, in the middle.  By clicking on me on the lawn of the Science Museum (superimposed with a picture of my cube and chair at Infor) you will come to a 2nd and third photo.  In the actual article on newsstands is a 150 word summary.  Each photo also has a caption.

The great thing is that ProductCamp MN and SMBMSP got super mentions.  (Although if I had been given the captions to proof, I would have made the reference to SMBMSP a tad more precise.)

I spent 4 hours with the photographer, Josh Poehlein, and time on the phone with the reporter, Katherine Reynolds Lewis.  I have seen so many success stories in the last three years, and they do go under-reported.  Hats off to Businessweek for highlighting how networking can lead to new adventures!!

Update June 6, 2012:

  • Found the issue on the stands last night.
  • Disappointed at first that my picture wasn’t on the cover.
  • Flipped through to discover I’m a centerfold.

Yep, my photo is spread over 2 pages.  Definitely LOL.  Yep, that’s why I got the MBA:  so I could be a centerfold in Businessweek.  Loving it!!!!

Master of Social Media May 11, 2011

I passed!   Just got the word that after three days of classes and an exam, I am now a Master of Social Media.

After two years of LinkedIn, Twitter, Shareology, Facebook and, yes, three videos on YouTube, I am now certified. (Write you own caption….) 

Two years ago, I attended my first Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis St. Paul and promptly declared myself a Social Media Enthusiast.  (Yes, it went on my business card.)  Gistr came calling and asked me to prepare and implement a social media strategy for their website.  (Never did get around to ordering cards with Social Media Strategist on them; it did, however, land on my Twitter profile.)  Two days after the exam results (a 95!!!) I ordered new cards with Master of Social Media on them.  Thus you can track my social media history in a progression of titles and business cards, and now classroom learning.

To learn more about this program, cosponsored by Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis St. Paul and Dakota County Technical College, check out:  http://smbmsp.org/2011/05/whats-a-cmsm-and-why-do-you-want-one/
