and fortune. Well, hopefully just fortune. ;-)
(By the way, if you're not on Google Plus, you're missing out, big time. 95-99% of your Facebook Page fans never even see your posts after they like your page. Unless, of course, you pay for advertising. Lame. Google Plus is where all the cool business people hang out.)
Okay, as I was saying, I went to my very first Google Plus Hangout the other day. After I got over the whole video thing, it was actually really fun! There were only three other people there: James Fierce, Manolis Sfinarolakis the Google Plus crowdfunding god, and John Jurkiewicz.
(I was actually the only one with hair, which was kind of amusing. :-)
Anyway, we went around the room and introduced ourselves, and when it came my turn, I mentioned that I lived in a "rural ghetto".
Well, that caught John Jurkiewicz's attention, and we immediately hit it off. Turns out, he also lives in rural America, AND he's a "career development coach and consultant who works with both individuals and companies to help them reach their overall goals through their careers."
Not only did he offer me a spot on his weekly Google Hangout on Air on the Career Corner community for next Wednesday, September 3rd at 7 PM, but he has held my hand through getting used to the Hangouts, offered me great tips on how the heck to make some money from my cramped writing fingers and all of these crazy ideas bouncing around in my head, suggested how to fan some life into my dog walking/pet sitting business, and brought some totally awesome Plussers to my attention, especially Meilani MacDonald, Mia Voss, and the Google Plus Community User2User -- great for us G+ noobs!
And he made me laugh my ass off the whole time.
Let me just say that John has been EXACTLY what I needed in my current stage as a solopreneur, and, unlike the money-or-food-type of help I tend to get from other people (not that I mind free money or food), his has been truly MEANINGFUL help. The kind of help that isn't just here and gone, but stays with you for the rest of your life.
So quit sitting here wasting time reading my blog (wait, did I actually say that?), and go check him out! He's at:
