This Week on Twitter

This last week, not surprisingly, has seen lots of talk about a New Year, new plans and goals for 2014. Here are some of my favorite Tweets on these topics.

Being a woman is not easy (there I said it!). I liked the advice in this article about being in the moment, being who you are, laughing at yourself, getting out of your own way and helping each other. As women we can change the world with more cooperation and less competition between each other. Katie, I think you are a great example of this.

Many people spent some time this past week looking into their crystal ball and sharing predictions. Generally speaking all the articles I read are modestly positive on the real estate market for 2014. Thank goodness! I think we can all live with a 3-6% gain in home prices, steady sales levels around 5.1 million (roughly 2007 levels), interest rates staying under 5% and a more balanced supply and demand.

If starting a business is on your to-do list this year, here’s a great run down of a few things you’ll want to have in place to get off to a productive start. Good luck.

Klout gave us some social media tips for 2014. A good content strategy is still at the center of building your brand both online and offline. These online numbers are amazing “over 500 million tweets sent every day, 35 million #selfies on Instagram, and 350 million photos uploaded by Facebook users every month.”

The New Year brought lots of fun for Snapchat users who found out their information was hacked and phone number posted on the Internet. Facebook also got hit with a lawsuit alleging they scan private messages and use the content to help serve up ads. Andrea, I agree we should all just behave as if nothing online is private and that way we’ll all have nothing to worry about.

And so we are off and running into 2014. These mid-week holidays have been a bit of a pain the last couple of weeks. I’ll be glad to get back to my daily routine next week. Here’s to 2014! Let’s do this!!

I've spent my career working with people and organizations to help them build their brands. We live in a connected world where that line between a personal and professional persona has become nonexistent. Your brand is you 24/7. This blog is about me and my life. Some of it will relate to my passion for the real estate industry and some of it will just be about me living life and exploring my interests. The opinions expressed here are my own personal opinions.
