OK, seriously? What the fuck was the point of building these different circles if you're just going to abandon that feature anyway and give me one messy home feed?!?!?!?!

THIS is exactly why Google can't play in Social! Google+ could actually be a good network, but no one cares enough to make it worth caring about.

There was a time that I honestly believed in this network. I really did, and then Google couldn't get out of their own way. It's a tragedy. They handed Facebook the win.

For those still using Google+, can you sell me on the idea of devoting more time here in 2016? It seems as though even Google has started to move away from G+. Thoughts?

Quick poll: what do you post here on G+ that you don't post elsewhere? What is the differentiator in this audience?

That's interesting. I've found that no matter what frequency I post on any network, my engagement is still highest on FB and Instagram. I would've preferred if my network migrated to G+ and Twitter.

Passionate. Knowledgeable. Social.
Introduction

Passionate.  

I live and breathe social media.  Google+. Facebook. Twitter. Pinterest. Whatever innovation is next.  I thrive on analyzing what’s best for a business need and then teaching others how to use these tools to meet their specific goals--whether through my direct work with clients, through my blog, through speaking engagements, or through every day encounters with people. 

You see, I believe that rather than keeping people apart, used well, social media actually tears down walls, builds community, and provides solutions.  And the knowledge that I can contribute to this result inspires my work day in and day out. 

Knowledgeable. 

I speak the language of business. I use social media strategically to accomplish business goals—not the other way around.  Before founding True Voice Media, I earned my MBA, was a social media marketing strategist, and director of a social media practice group.  I’m a living example of setting your mind to something, and achieving it, and that’s what I want for my clients as well.

Social.

I listen to and love being with people. I’m enlivened by the energy that’s created by engaging with others and the opportunity for personal growth. It’s natural that I’d gravitate toward and specialize in social media, as it’s constantly evolving, and well…social.   

My company is founded on the belief that there’s an exciting new paradigm of customer engagement in business: customers now have access to information, and at the same time, they can mold it, contribute to it, and participate in it.  And the business that really understands this and views its customers as partners in this conversation, rather  than  bystanders, or worse, adversaries, is the business that’s going to thrive. 

How I’m Different.

I founded True Voice Media to enable businesses to successfully use social media with the foundation of honesty, openness, authenticity, and unapologetic realness. Whatever that is for your business--that’s your True Voice.  And when you use and integrate your True Voice with social media, you end up doing what you love, leaving your customers delighted, and producing the results you want. That’s what True Voice Media—and I—am all about.

Many people come to a Social Media strategist for specific outcomes such as getting more “likes” or followers. But these cannot be ends in themselves.  They may be part of a strategy, but without a well-thought out and carefully constructed approach, these “results” don’t make any difference at all.

And that’s what I coach you in. You won’t be using these tools haphazardly or without purpose. Instead, we’ll be selecting the most appropriate tools for YOUR goals, setting the process in motion, and guiding you every step of the way.  

But don’t take my word for it. Let’s talk and you can decide if what I offer is what you are looking for.

I wouldn't say I was a chiropractics skeptic, but I'll say that--until recently--I'd never had my entire world changed like some people talk about. In general, adjustments made me feel a little better and nothing more. Well, last week I was totally out of whack. My lower back was so tweaked that bending over was so painful that I had to bend at the knees to get anything. Walking was difficult. Certain movements caused extreme pain to shoot throughout my body. I tried to "muscle through it" but it was unbearable. So I went to Dr. Beth. Dr. Beth adjusted me. My body sounded like bubble wrap. I stood up and immediately noticed a difference. My mind was more clear, I could feel energy running through out my body, and the lower back pain went from sharp to muted. The very next day I had virtually no pain at all and the following day was back to normal. It was astoundingly effective, I could not believe how quickly I went from agonizing pain to normal. So I guess you could say I'm a believer now. Dr. Beth is a healer, I've felt it first hand.

This is a good place to go. Almost everything is very good. The sandwiches are ridiculously overstuffed with meat--something I tend not to like. Highlights include potato pancakes, pastrami, pastrami lox and matzoh brei.
