Hilary Clinton continues her digital campaign.  Will this endorsement help? #ImWithHer #SCS2846
In a video posted Monday to Lena Dunham's public Facebook page, Amy Poehler, Uzo Aduba and Katy Perry also favor Clinton's presidential bid.

I've been doing some research on how people make decisions.  And emotions play a large role.  People make decisions emotionally, and justify their decisions intellectually. When you think about this in a marketing sense you don't sell you brand / product with facts and stats you got to have a story first.

It was great to work with Web Copy Plus on this article.  It is important for everyone to think about their own digital footprint.  We live in a day and age where your first impression might be when someone types your name into Google.  Do you like what comes up?

Are you experiencing some FOMO because you're not on Snapchat? Check out this video, and it might entice you to finally join in. My favourite feature are the Live Stories.  #SCS2846
Could Snapchat be the zen of social media?

One of the best articles I've read in awhile.  All the points made are great.  But #1 & #2 really resonated with me.  

#1 - "It is not outside forces that make us feel something, it is what we tell ourselves that create our feelings. A blank document, canvas, or unmarked to-do list is not inherently stressful—it’s your thoughts that are stressing you out."

#2 - Find someone you respect, and use them to stay honest - SO IMPORTANT! 
Act on your principles, not your moods. How the ancient philosophy of Stoicism can help us smash creative blocks and do our best work.

In my research this morning I came across this article dissecting the differences between males and females on how they use social media.  "..females use social networking sites to make connections and stay in touch with family or friends. Men, by contrast, use social media to gather the information they need to build influence." 
Pretty important insights if you're looking to create relevant content for a particular gender. #SCS2846  
Ever wondered who is more active on social media: men or women? Or what women use social for vs men? Are women or men more active? What percent do men and women use social for, for different things?

Hey #SCS2846  I know it's crunch time with the Final Project.  Here are some great tips on #OvercomingProcrastination using the  2-minute rule. The major premise of this rule is once you start doing something, it’s easier to continue doing it.

Story
Tagline
“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” ― Norman Vincent Peale
Introduction
During the day and most nights, I'm a digital/social media strategist.  I enjoy using digital/social to solve business problems.  https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeangeorge 
I also teach Social Media Strategy at UofT. http://bit.ly/1kYzPaq

When I'm not strategizing or teaching, I'm perfecting my cartwheel, going for a run, or looking for the next book to read.  I'm always looking for good book recos, so let me know if you have one.  Sharing is caring.
