Many years ago, I fell in love with social media. I had no idea where the road would lead, but I went on the journey anyway. I saw the future and went with the flow and today I am happy to see how businesses are leveraging on social media. Writing this book was a challenge I took on because I wanted to connect with people around the world. This is not a presentation of a perfect person but one who is on a journey.
