A big believer that every step of the journey is well worth it because it has brought her to her ‘now’, she is a total extrovert and holds a personal record of 13 zoom sessions in one day! Thank you, Nicole, for sharing your wisdom about social media and how you embrace failure as part of the whole process.  I also love that she is an eternal optimist.

I am excited to announce that BroadBand the Podcast TV is coming to YouTube!  I will be sharing many of the conversations I have shared with you here, on the podcast, but on video.  It launches on March 8! One of my morning habits is to watch entertaining videos on Instagram. The Reels feature has laugh-out-loud content and I love to check on the Stories of a few influencers abroad to get my travel fix (until I actually travel again). It got me to thinking about what Facebook is up to these days when it comes to the video option and the channel's relevance as we move forward in a more digital world. According to a post by Oberlo, Facebook's video features look to continue to be great options for businesses, especially for small sized ones as consumers love videos. As a digital media navigator who is a big fan of keeping 'the social in media' by real engagement with followers, I love the kind of content you can create and share by using video.  I will be sure to include a link to the post in the show notes. Have a great day and thanks for listening to Broadband – a podcast about Women in Business Sharing Their Wisdom.  On the next show: Megan Reyes. Thanks again to Nicole for sharing some of her time and her wisdom with us!
