I want to cry. I want to run away to a tiny island with my family and friends. I want to slam the door 🚪 behind me and never look back. I am TIRED. Fatigued. Over IT!!! Our world appears to be in total shambles. Everywhere I look online and on TV, people are arguing, accusing, hating one another. I can’t take it anymore. It’s making me sick. Anxious. Overwhelmed. Angry. But that’s just it— Everywhere I look online. Social Media. It’s nuts.
It was only natural my first post of the new year would be an interview with a delightful and brilliant woman who shares a mutual love of Fayetteville, North Carolina. The same woman who welcomed me with open arms nearly a year ago to be a part of Fayetteville Bloggers Network, a highlight for me in 2019 as it has allowed me to embrace my community and grow in new contacts as well as friendships with creatives and business owners who share our vision and respect of this All-American City we call home. Jenny Bell , Communications & Social Media Specialist for the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (FACVB), prides herself as a displaced Texan who proudly calls Fayetteville, NC her “adopted hometown.” In her role with FACVB, she promotes Cumberland County as a tourism destination by leading the Fayetteville NC Blogger Network, managing the FACVB’s multiple social media outlets, and writing for the award-winning GoFayetteville.com blog (a fabulous resource for all individuals living in this area as well as potential visitors to our community).

Networking is crucial in developing a successful business. Whether you own a marketing firm, restaurant, boutique, bookstore, IT business— you must embrace networking as a main vein to grow your business. Social Media is a fabulous way to connect and network with individuals worldwide or simply in your very own community: i.e. to simply introduce yourself to the world, find new customers and/or partners, advertise new services or sales, develop peer groups... what have you. Doors 🚪 open through online exposure. BUT, you cannot rely 100% on social media and online interactions to develop yourself as a professional entrepreneur.
