I have one word for my fall, and that word is BUSY!
I’m cutting way back on my publicity work, partly because my teaching and workshop schedule is very, very full. Here’s a look at my fall schedule. I’ll note which courses and workshops are open to the public in case you want to attend.
Seems like no matter how long people give me for a workshop, there’s never enough time. I love teaching this course because it’s 12 weeks and it really allows me to get deep into social media. The Tuesday night class is full, full, full, but there are still a couple of spots on Monday morning (!).
Mondays, 9 am-12pm
Tuesday nights, 5:30-8:30
Sept 13-Nov 29

The focus will be on learning to use social media as a marketing tool to establish and maintain your small business’ online presence.
