Authentic storytelling is a reliable way to ensure that you connect deeply with your audience and build a base of fans that relates to you wherever you are, offline, in person and beyond. Our guest this month, Dayna Steele, will share with us how she has done just that.

She tells her story with authenticity every time. We will talk with Dayna about how she’s been able to stay true to authentic storytelling and learn about her latest endeavor, and most personal story, “Surviving Alzheimer's with Friends, Facebook, and a Really Big Glass of Wine.” 

Our discussion will cover:

-The components of authenticity in social media
-How to share authentically without grandstanding
-How much authenticity is too much
-How to be a storyteller instead of a storyseller
-How to build a loyal fanbase that feels more like a friendbase

Social media is a great way to build a community around your brand. But how do you do it?  And even if you do, how does it convert into money for both you and your business? Our speaker this month has successfully built and monetized a community of followers for his own business and has taught others how to do the same with theirs. During our conversation with him, we'll hear how he grew his Twitter account, organically, from less than 800 followers to almost 200,000 followers in just two years and how you can do the same.

We will talk about:

- Tips for Creating Stellar Content to Help Build Your Community
- Tips to Build Community on Social Media In Less Than An Hour A Day
- Tips to Strategically "Stalk with Excellence"(in a Good Way) to Build Your Following

Looking forward to interviewing +Eric T. Tung and +Mac Guidera this morning about how to get the most out of collaboating with your team on social media.
 
ARE YOU IN HOUSTON? ATTEND LIVE https://www.facebook.com/events/112230442496818/


Social media isn’t just for marketing. Research says that 47% of HR professionals said that employee engagement is the most important challenge at their organization. And according to Gallup, only 13 percent of employees consider themselves engaged at work.

This month, we are going to take an in-depth look at how to use social media to create collaborative and engaged work environments and empower employees to become your best social media outlet. We will discuss what is in it for employees to participate in an internal or external social media program and how to get employees to share company messages in external social media.

No matter the size (big or small) of your company or organization, we will talk about how to increase engagement. If you are an agency, consultant or a recruiter, this will be great information for your own teams and clients. And even if you work alone, we will cover how to make your own team using collaboration tools.

We will discuss:
- How to create an internal culture that collaborate
- What tools you can use to make it happen
- How to get employees to participate in social platforms
- What employee guidelines you need for social media
- Types of training employees need to use social media at workg
- What if your organization is ultra-small or even solo, can you use these ideas?

Looking forward to the Social Media Breakfast of Houston in the New Year on January 8th. Video is my weak spot and my #1 goal for 2016 is to master it.
 
In this summer's earning call, Facebook Founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerburg, said, “If you go back ten years, most of how people communicated was through text. We’re entering into a period where that’s increasingly going to be video and we’re seeing huge growth there.”

And the numbers show it.  In November 2015, Facebook reported 8 billion daily video views (and in April 2015, the same stat was 4 billion daily video views). So the arc of this is very clear.  We started with text and moved to images and now we're heading to video.  

Our speakers will share their experiences and cover all these questions and more:

As video dominates, what are the new rules?  
How do you make videos that succeed in a world of autoplay?  
Where do live broadcasting tools like Periscope, Facebook Live Video andBlab.im fit into this?  
What about Google Hangouts on Air and YouTube, how do these older platforms fit in? 
When should you post something to Twitter as a GIF?  
Why is posting something as a native video important (vs. posting it on a 3rd party site)?

The discussion about the role of technology in the terrorist attacks in Paris was interesting. Last month, a month before the attacks, we had the Consulate General of France in Houston and the Israeli Consulate talk about how they handle a crisis on social media to the Social Media Breakfast of Houston. Pretty interesting because Sujiro talked about the importance of making human connections and how social media has allowed him to do that. Interestingly, France has a policy that the consulate will maintain both an official and personal social channels, and it has been interesting to watch how each has been handled after the attack.

1.) Why it's important to have an amazing Twitter profile and what yours should include
2.) How to get on the radar with industry experts and journalists
3.) Mistakes that some people and companies make on Twitter and how to avoid them
4.) How to curate and create interesting content for Twitter
5.) Which tweets should be automated and which should not
6.) Tools that will help you grow and use Twitter more effectively
New features of Twitter and how to take advantage of them

I find myself agreeing with a lot of what Einstein said
 
I really like the thought leadership technique of quoting prominent luminaries in your speeches and posts. Well, here are 140 from the great Albeit Einstein. Read all 140 at http://aha.pub/theworldasiseeit

The World as I See It is a book by Albert Einstein published in 1949. Composed of assorted articles, addresses, letters, interviews, and pronouncements published before 1935, it includes Einstein's opinions on the meaning of life, ethics, science, society, religion, and politics.

I have found, by hard experience, that this is completely true. The ability to make quick decisions is HUGE.
 
What is the biggest mistake most small businesses make? The answer may surprise you!
Did you know that there is only one thing holding your business back? You might be surprised to learn that it isn't funding or lack of customers. It's called decision paralysis. At YP℠, our connection to small businesses gives us insight into what those business owners do best... and what tends to keep them from achieving their objectives. More often than not, it is the fear and anxiety that halts their decision-making process, or as we like to c...
