Tagline
Business Development, Sales & All Things Social @ MMI (www.michlinmetals.com) Woman Owned Small Business in Aerospace Metal & Stainless Steel Distribution. Lover of Photography when time permits. Google Plus has allowed me the ability to engage with thought leaders and power users here through my creation of Google Drive Presentations which take their content and repurpose it via Drive.
Introduction
Enjoy watching the proliferation of social media as it invades all aspects of business. 

I love creating efficiencies through the use of technology. Working inside the small business paradigm is a positive for someone such as myself as it allows the flexibility and latitude needed to architect, create, deploy and maintain systems that create intrinsic value to the organization. 

I am a voracious reader and enjoy Epic Novels, Historical Fiction, Non-Fiction (specifically Organized Crime, Espionage, History) and any other great story. 

Lately I have been reading a great deal of content on the web. Subject matter is mostly about G+, Social Media, Small Business, SEO & the Aerospace Metal Industry

I have recently started a couple communities (Under Michlin Metals):
autoawesome community - All things autoawesome

Right from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Amazingly thin pizza made fresh to order and quickly as well. This pizza joint has been around for years. It's a staple of North Shore Pizza. If you like thin and crispy pizza, this is the place.

Top notch! Fantastic. Everything was great. Pricey but well worth it. The bar is fun and the ambiance is great. Again, a little expensive but it's a steak house, it should be...if it wasn't the steaks wouldn't be on point. Highly recommend it.

Fantastic, the chicken marsala is amazing. Huge portions and the food is great. They have a menu that is a bit overwhelming but everything I have eaten is great. I would certainly recommend it.

Amazing spot for a reasonably priced Greek lunch spot. Chicken is great, the pita is awesome and the dressings and sauces are very tasty. Lastly, they are super fast so if you are short on time and want great food, this is the place to go.

Lunch Specials. Need I say more!?! If you like habachi restaurants and don't want to spend a mint, go here for lunch. They are very reasonably priced and the food is fantastic.

You need to eat at this restaurant right now. Food is amazing, service is great and did I mention that the food is amazing. Usually I would try other places before wanting to go back to a new joint. This place, I would dine again and asap. Go, NOW. Bring your checkbook as well it's a bit pricey but worth every penny.
