Learning how to *rock* my business on Pinterest

I had the good fortune earlier this month to attend a seminar called: How Pinterest Can Be Your Business’ Secret Social Media Weapon (Morning Program) led by Lisa Kalner Williams, the founder of Sierra Tierra Marketing, an agency that provides social analysis, strategy, and instruction to corporations and individuals. 

Here's the serendipitous part: how I found out about this seminar is exactly why social sharing is so powerful. I received an email from a colleague of mine who forwarded me the *Events your friends are attending and picks just for you* email-wondering if we knew about and or were going to a STEM event at Wheelock College. I then signed up for the STEM-ED event as well as joined the waitlist for the Pinterest event. I didn't have to wait long; within a few hours I was notified that I could claim my spot since there had been a cancellation. 

Events for You, From Us April showers bring May flowers, and more events. Our robots picked out a bouquet, just for you.
