Listen to the show to find out more on the 3 keys to success
1. Share the story of your journey and who you are. Your success and your failures that drive you to future success.
2. Be careful who you follow and retweet. The content that shows on your feed could provide a negative perception of you.
3. The hot thing in the sports world is a behind the scenes look into the inner circle of the team or group. The people with good content normally get the attention.
We also discussed the use of hash tagging and mentioning people that are around you. Social media is about the conversation. Interact with people around you in fun and inviting ways. Energize those around you and congratulate them on their success it puts you in a positive interaction that is not all about you.
