Weekly Round-Up // April 5, 2013


It is hard to believe that March is done, and we are in April! I am so excited to announce that I have accepted a promotion at my current employer! My new job title will be Life Marketing Representative. Let me get back to you on what I actually do… but I am so excited! The past six years I have been working full-time and going to school part-time to earn my BS in Business Administration. I will be done with school in one year and my ultimate goal was to obtain a marketing position, so to have earned that while I still have a year left is just great. I will try to document my journey on this blog, too.

On with this week’s link round-up.

I bought this book by Sheryl Sandberg and I cannot wait to start reading it. Here is a clip of her talking with Jon Stewart about the book, Lean In.

Since I’m on the Sheryl Sandberg train, she gave a great TED Talk. She is just so inspiring. I love strong women leaders!

Not only are there hurdles for corporations when it comes to social media, those hurdles are intensified for many financial services and highly regulated industries. The S.E.C. has outlined a new disclosure that clarifies how companies can use social media such as Facebook and Twitter to share public information. I imagine it is quite difficult to keep up with what is “hot” in the innovative field for these regulated companies!

I have talked about Gary Vaynerchuk before on this blog, but here he is again! Gary gives some candid advice on leadership in an off-the-cuff video he made (while on a plane!).

Alright, this is not marketing related but I simply cannot resist “Call Me Maybe” and I just can’t stop when great groups do a remake or parody. Here is an unnamed group of the military with their take on the catchy tune, and here is the Tampa, FL Police Department’s way of encouraging their citizens to call them. Genius, pure genius.
