Like it or not, we live in a world where — if you own your own business — you, more than likely, need to have some sort of presence on social media in order to (as they say) establish your digital footprint. But with new platforms and unspoken rules of engagement popping up what feels like every other day, it can be difficult, and at time overwhelming, to not only know where you need to be but how you need to show up.

 

Cathy E.Smith, owner of C2 Internet Marketing firm, helps her clients get in the right place with the right platform using the right tools and resources to make sure they maximize their opportunities to raise awareness for their brands. As the daughter of two longtime entrepreneurs, Cathy always had the desire to follow in their footsteps, but worked instead at least two jobs all while growing up. Now, although she still has a full-time gig with major benefits, Cathy is making moves and planning her exit strategy, and on this episode of the Support is Sexy podcast she speaks about why — when it comes to business — everybody can’t come.
