 After my recent experience getting a flat with all 3 kids in the car and an a hour away from home, this is definitely a good list to keep in mind. You just never know….

Last night I gave my latest LinkedIn Basics class where I address some of the key elements that will make your profile attractive to recruiters. Did you know upwards of 94% use LinkedIn? As I was doing some research to update my presentation, I found a great list of what you need to have a killer profile. Some people that I work with or who attend my classes never think that the Summary section is necessary (or don't know how to talk about themselves), but as you see, it is CRUCIAL to your profile's visibility. As I explained last night, this gives you the opportunity to describe some successes, highlights, or even major changes in your professional life as if you were in that first round interview for a job. A hard copy resume doesn't tell a story, but your LInkedIn profile should: http://www.careercast.com/career-news/5-essential-tips-killer-linkedin-summary

I never considered a footwear test, but this is an easy checklist to follow. Good timing…

And i think it is extremely important. Incorrect footwear can cause so many long term foot problems.

Its' pretty safe to say that I don't really function unless I've had my morning coffee. It's not a Gilmore Girls' Lorelai level of addicted, but the smell and taste of my morning brew just signals my brain to get started for the day. Coffee is also like that great universal connector that people just get. It's like an "I say coffee", you say "yes please" kind of camaraderie. If you were to ask a regular coffee drinker the top 3 things they need o...

It's always amazing to me where traffic to my blog comes from. My post on Fancy Girl from last Friday has had over 4,000 hits from StumbleUpon. That's insane! There's a lot of factors at play here that I need to think about for the future: women's fashion, tulle skirts, ballet fashion, numbered fashion lists, "How To" fashion posts, etc.  http://afancygirlmust.com/friday-fresh-picks-7-ways-to-wear-a-tulle-skirt-when-youre-a-grown-up
A Fancy Girl Must has a big sister who is a globe-trotting fashionista living in the fancy world she once dreamed of as a little girl. It was only a matter of time before I found the need to share for my own love of fashion, glitz and glamour with others. A few weeks ago, I launched Living in a Fancy World on Facebook with my step-sis and future sister-in-law. There we share fashion & beauty trends, and luxe-life inspiration. It's a fun outlet fo...

Not only can you wear white after Labor Day, but you  can also wear shorts with tights. My latest post for +FabKids  is up and it's all about how to transition your summer wardrobe into the fall. A few tips:

-- wear tights with your shorts (preferably dark or denim)
-- a shorts suit is absolutely professional and appropriate 
-- take your favorite summer dress and throw on a sweater or cardigan. Add some boots and you're good for fall
-- don't put your neon away….ever!

The fall is my favorite time of year for fashion. I’m a layers person. I love cardigans, tights, boots over jeans, you name it. I’m on the East Coast, so we still have another month or so before we have to put most of our summer things away for good. However, in a same way that you can still wear white after Labor Day, you can still wear your summer clothes in the fall. And here are some ways to rock the look. Shorts Outfit #1: (shorts, top) Outf...

I love me some Twit.TV podcasts and just discovered a new one called Marketing Mavericks. This episode came at a perfect time, as the topic of customer service and employee engagement is a hot button issue in my professional circle. Some of the questions/topics addressed by host Tonya Hall include: the personal brand of your sales team members, customer engagement, the Comcast #fail , and the idea that social media is a person2person vehicle and not just b2b/b2c. 
Comcast's PR crisis that keeps getting bigger and cultivating a relationship with your customers.

Thank You Hillary. I'm looking forward to watching this. Do you know Tonya Hall? The name is so familiar to me --like she and I may have met in one of my own Media appearances. Again, thanks.

Story
Tagline
Social Media & PR Consultant, NJ Digital Mom with 3 Littles, Fashion & Pop Culture Junkie
Introduction
When people ask me "What do you do," it's hard to tell them just a short and simple answer. The short answer is: I have my own social media and public relations consulting business. The long answer is: I am a SoMe consultant, founder of a hyperlocal networking group, style blogger, blog contributor, volunteer, excessive Instagrammer, and mom to 3 absolute joys in my life. It's a mouthful, and it's definitely a challenge, but that's just how I roll. 

As owner of Hilary Morris Communications, LLC, I will work with you to develop a social media marketing or public relations plan that makes sense for your brand, industry, and budget. I'm looking to work with people who are interested in doing the content management themselves, but just need some help getting started and finding direction. 

As founder of the hyperlocal networking group CoffeeTalk, I will help connect you with other Princeton, NJ area entrepreneurs and small business owners who, like me, are the sole employee in their company (or perhaps the sole person responsible for marketing and PR) and would like other people to swap ideas with and learn from. 

As a style blogger, I just want to appreciate your great taste in clothes. No, no, I'm kidding. Kind of. I write for the Child Star Style column at HollywoodMomBlog and have learned that young Hollywood has amazing fashion sense..or great stylists. I am also the founder/editor of A Fancy Girl Must, a fashion site dedicated to sharing trends and "fab finds" for girls aged infant through tween. This blog was inspired by my eldest daughter's love for fashion. It was also a way for me to build a blog and brand from the ground up…again. You see, before I even launched my business, I was otherwise known as "Mrs. Mo." And that is a whole other story to tell! 

"Mrs. Mo" is actually the nickname one of my middle school students gave me back in 2006. Before I stepped into the blogging and social media world, I was a middle school teacher for 6 years. I started in computer applications and then moved onto teaching math.  To make a long story short, I started taking PR classes at Rider University and fell in love with the idea of that career. Ever since I was in high school, I was always involved in activities that involved creation, design, publishing, etc, yet I didn't know to do with that ability. I was yearbook editor in high school and college, the pr director of my sorority, and then I took on my local college alumni club after graduation. Then I discovered blogging and finally had an outlet for my interest in sharing things with people (shopping, recipes, healthy tips, fun places to visit, etc) and suddenly lost my drive for teaching. My blog was called "Mrs. Mo's New Jersey," and I covered everything from profiling businesses in New Jersey to writing about great new music. The blogging combined with my classes was a blaring sign to me that I needed to think of a different career path. I took a leap, quit my job, enrolled in school, and then opened my business a year after my eldest daughter was born. 

I now have 3 daughters who are a big part of my online presence. It's kind of hard not to learn a little bit about me before meeting me in person, but isn't that just the way it is today? If you work in social media, you should be social too.
