7.1.16 JANET narration of actions - little boy, baker, cook, child playing with toys

To me,, this is ultra cool.. it creates an episode in a child's life that will live for a long time for several reasons. Imagine the positive self-image 7-year-old Alex will have.
Of course one of the benefits of the inexpensive bionic arm is that Alex will quickly out grow the current arm and need a new one.
Thanks for sharing, +Jim McCloskey

This should be a lively half hour with Terry giving tips on doing good hangouts with interesting content. See you there live if you can make it.
Watch on YouTube if you prefer:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGa7gkgExJQ


Join us Monday, February 23, as we welcome our featured guest, Terry Lee Britton.  Terry is the “doer” of many things, all because he has taken the first step in actually tacking them!  He has many HOA concepts that he is involved in, as well as HOA’s that he has yet to implement.  His mind is technically geared, with huge helpings of innovations and ingenuity! We are excited that he will be on this broadcast because we know that he can inspire you, in many ways, to go after the things you want to learn and experience!  Once you replace the word “try” with “do,” the world of possibilities will open up to you!


Connect with Terry on Google+ today!

Select YES or MAYBE so this event is placed into your Calendar as a placeholder as a reminder.  Selecting NO will not give you any reminder notifications.

Remember:  All you need is Practice Time on LIVE-Camera when you first begin; and that's exactly why I am offering this FREE venue!

Please watch the Instructions and Requirements video to determine if you are ready to receive the JOIN HANGOUT button for the live broadcast on a future Monday.  


If you would like to be on any future shows, please send an email our way – Meloney Hall at Meloney@bigupticksocial.com OR Rayne Dowell at  info@socialmediastrategynow.com

Each week, we’ll have one or two guests on the LIVE broadcast to gain their experiences.  

Five (5) biggest benefits to YOU

1. You will gain LIVE on-air camera experience
2. You will be creating some digital video content that contains your name, image, and great personality
3. This can increase your personal brand awareness to help you with finding your next big thing
4. Your friends and family will be able to share the recorded YouTube video of you on the show and brag about how you’re becoming a “rising star”
5. You will always cherish your first moment on an HOA because you will have conquered your fear

It is so exciting for us to provide this FREE service as a way to pay-it-forward to others.   We all start somewhere and need a helping hand to take that first step.  Will you be taking your first step with us?

Guests who have requested to be on the show will receive the JOIN HOA notification 15-20 minutes before we GO-LIVE on-air to prep inside the “green room” (pre-show area).  Guests will also be invited to stay with us after the show for a quick “WOW, I Did It” release-of-joy moment!  

We launch our HOA’s from a G+ Business Page, which means you will have to “circle” it (add it).  This is the link to the page:

Hi Plussers!  This episode of the TGIF Business Networking Hangout features special guest +Geoffrey X Lane discussing Public Speaking and Your Business

What We’ll Be Discussing  
When you are a small business owner or solopreneur, you are the face of your company. You want to be able to represent your brand well and put your best business face forward. There are so many occasions when you will be asked to speak: at business mixers, giving your best 30 second elevator speech, at networking groups when it’s your turn to give the group a presentation on your business, or you may be asked to to give presentations to local business or industry groups as an expert in your field. Honing your public speaking skills will prepare you to put your best face forward so you can really harness those occasions and use them to build a strong and positive reputation in your community.

About the Special Guests
Joining us will be +Geoffrey X Lane, one of Canada’s leading coaches for communication, presentation and media training. He knows his craft - his skills got him the honor of being the official Presentation Skills Coach to the successful Vancouver 2010 Olympic Bid Committee. He’s been an international Keynote Speaker, speaking in the USA, Canada, Australia and the UK. Geoffrey is the author of “Presentation Power: become a powerful speaker” and currently conducts the “Essentials Public Speaking Workshop,” which he provides via Google Hangouts. 

About the Host
+Meilani MacDonald is a brand identity and outreach strategy consultant with a background in public outreach and graphic design. Meilani serves solopreneurs, small business, and non-profits with online and in-person trainings in creating effective outreach strategies and using Google’s powerful tools, as well as providing graphic design services.

Possible Guest Host
There is a possibility that your regular host will be called in to serve on jury duty, in that event a special guest host has been arranged and you will be treated to +John Jurkiewicz hosting this episode of TGIF! John is a semi regular participant in the TGIF peanut gallery and hosts his own fabulous Hangouts too, so you will all be in good hands should Meilani be unable to attend. Hopefully, John will decide to join us even if Meilani is free to do her regular hosting duties this week :)

Hi Plussers!  This episode of the TGIF Business Networking Hangout features special guest +Jim Ault discussing his SEO Recipe for Social Success: Web Site, YouTube, Google+, and Pinterest!

What We’ll Be Discussing  
SEO - everyone wants to know what it is and what it means. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, and basically it means doing things that will make your name and business brand search results friendly. When someone is searching for info on the kinds of goods and services you provide, what can you do to increase the chances that YOUR links will show up in their search results? In most cases, people want to drive traffic to their web sites. In Jim’s special recipe, it isn’t necessarily about your web site itself that needs to show up in the search results, but rather your content, posted across various social sites, because that content will in turn send viewers to your web site

About the Special Guests
Joining us will be +Jim Ault who is someone who really just loves working with video and visual media to create cool content that is fun to create and helps people build their reputation, brand identity, and audience. I have personally learned a lot of really good tips from Jim, and he’s been on TGIF a few times when we’ve discussed video marketing topics in particular. Jim will be discussing how we can take advantage of video and graphics technology that is now readily available to anyone, to benefit our businesses in 2015!

We are working along the path toward launching the next phase of the J.A.R.S. Project and the OneConTech media platform. There are a lot of moving parts to coordinate as well as our team member schedules.  The next step for us is doing the rehearsals for our studio equipment and to begin developing our presentation style. Fortunately we have a long list of startups and people driving them that finding exciting topics will be easy.

We appreciate the support and interest that many of you out there have shown. After Project J.A.R.S. formed just six months ago, we began work on making a launch in 2014. just a few more pieces and we should be able to start up and run for many years to come.  

Stay tuned, and thanks for your support.

This should be a fantastic event by one of the most popular GPlussers, +Daria Musk 
Hey everyone! I am so excited to bring you with me (virtually) to the famous Pace University Stage in New York City!

It’s the same spot where they film the TV show “Inside The Actor’s Studio” and just like that show I’ll be sitting down for a passionate conversation about music, business, tech, being an “artistprenuer" and making what-you-love-what-you-do! And of course I’ll be singing for you and all the smarty-pants business and arts school students in the house too! 

YOU CAN RSVP & WATCH LIVE RIGHT HERE!

And quick! Zap me a note through Gchat if you want to be one of the 10 people featured in the actually Hangout on stage! I promise your gorgeous faces will be huuuuge! I’ve seen the screen, it’s one of the biggest we’ve had so far!!

Can’t wait to sing our story to a whole new group of G+niuses and dreamers!

XO, Daria
