I just joined a course created by Chris Brogan. It is much more interactive than any course I have taken and it is all online. Leave it to Chris to come up with a successful way to create both community and learning. Everyone is sharing so much good information. It will be a highly recommended suggestion to all my community folks. But what is most important and why I am sharing this info is that deciding to learn more about social media is a humbling experience.
Why? It’s because I have been involved in learning about all things online for marketing and more effective sales for more than two decades. I had to admit that I need to learn more. I needed to learn from an expert. What I’ve been learning now through this course is that now there exists a whole community of people who are ready, willing and able to learn from each other.
I am grateful that I did get humble, not just for this course but for all the things I know I need to learn. I love to learn. I am a geeky kind of girl. My husband calls me “Gadget Girl.” But I pale in comparison to the people in this course with Chris. They are amazing. What I am realizing is that if allow myself to be humble, to suck it up and just watch, listen and, of course, learn . . . now, I’m on my way.
Yes, it’s a long way, just the joy as they say is in the journey. I’m beginning to see just how true that is. So, what about you. Are you ready to learn? Where will you start? What cool group can you jump into? Let me know if you want me to share more about Chris and his course. As we all learn, we all benefit.
