I also blog and vlog under my brand "Michele Ruiz, My Life as a Latina Entrepreneur" at MicheleRuiz.com. I love sharing knowledge, know-how, insider information and secrets from pros to help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams, as I chronicle my journey in launching another company.

How ill advised comments become a global crisis communications issue in a social media world IN AN HOUR:
1 - Person making a speech utters an indefensible statement
2- Attendee uses her smartphone and tweets out (i.e. broadcasts to the world) the statement and her commentary - “Really, does this Nobel laureate think we are still in Victorian times?”
3 - Her shocked and appalled followers re-tweet it 
4 - Original tweet and story pick up steam using a pithy hashtag ‪#‎distractinglysexy‬ and quickly starts "trending"..
CRISIS POINT... and then within days...
5 - Hashtag influences a bazillion people to join the "conversation" with comments, memes and hysterical videos.

Never, never ever give up on a dream... no matter how difficult the obstacles. You never know when you're an inch away from the perfect action, person or circumstance you need. Keep at it.

The ones who say "YOU CAN'T" and "YOU WON'T" are probably the ones scared that "YOU WILL".
