A lot of people have been asking me questions about the newest member of the Vision Quest Retreats tribe; Social Media Butterfly. They want to know who she is, what she does and where she hangs out so I caught up with her in cyberspace to catch a quick interview…
NC: So Social Media Butterfly thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to meet with me. I just want to ask you a few questions.
SMB: I’m busy but never too busy to chat in cyberspace, besides I have a habit of being a lot of places at once.
NC: Is that how you came up with your motto; “Who says you can’t be everywhere at once?”
NC: So who are you? I mean what do you do, what’s you mission? You know what I mean.
SMB: (laughing) I’m basically a digital sprite and my mission is to enlighten and enliven those upon whom I land through my use of social media.
NC: So you flit around in cyberspace spreading your pollen?
SMB: Yes you could say that. I like to use a touch of humor to connect people, shout out worthy causes and people who are living their visions.
NC: Aside from humor what’s in your pollen?
SMB: I guess you could say ideas, information, inspiration and love too. I try to give support and help people use social media in a positive way.
NC: That brings me to my next question. When you say “help people use social media in a positive way” is that your job? I mean how do you make a living? I imagine even sprites have to eat.
SMB: True! When I’m not playing I do a little social media consulting mainly with small businesses and entrepreneurs. It’s a part of the coaching I offer to small business owners.
NC: What do you do for fun? I see you are “on the scene” a fair amount.
SMB: Well yes that’s part of my job too. I pop up at events and gatherings to report on the goings on there. Like our trip to Atlanta the other day for the wellness conference. I take pics and share what’s going on in different places, because people can’t be everywhere at once but I can.
NC: Where will you be next?
SMB: I’ll be at the Vision Quest Retreats/Blogalicious event August 11 in Potomac, MD; Unleash Your Social Media Butterfly. Stacey Ferguson will be there too presenting “5 WAYS TO INCREASE CLIENTS, GENERATE REVENUE AND ENHANCE YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA PROFILE” It’s a pool party and fundraiser to send a deserving woman to Blogalicious 2012 in Las Vegas this Fall.
NC: One last question SMB; the boots, the wings, the little outfit…are you a super hero?
SMB: (laughs) Let’s say an aspiring super heroine.
