1) ? What’s the one piece of technology that you can’t live without?
can I choose 2 pieces? Because they would be my iPhone _ MacBook….and in that order. Both serve similar functions but I practically sleep with my computer!
2) ? What is your favorite online resource?
Of course Google.com is up there. But I use imediaconnection.com quite a bit – great, relevant marketing articles delivered fresh into my inbox each morning.
3) ? How many e-mails do you get in a day?
Believe it or not, it varies depending on what I am working on but overall I would say 60-80 from all 3 email accounts.
4) Tomorrow there is no internet. What do you do?
Cry. Curl up in a ball then move on. After all, I was in school and didn’t have internet. We can survive without it!
5) Are you followed or are you a follower?
A bit of both but mostly followed. I tend to keep my follower list fairly low and only follow those that are business related, relevant mixed with a few personal.
6) What’s your favorite magazine?
Marie Clarie has always been my fave but its definitely followed by O Magazine then INC Magazine. I also love online versions of magazines – INC Magazine, Fast Company, NYTimes Business section, Wired Magazine…..the list continues
