Book Review: “Now What Do I Do. An Entepreneur’s Guide To Getting To The Next Step With Social Media”

By Lynia White

Author Tiffany Odutoye is a Virtual Assistant who specializes in social media networking. She is the Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of Virtual Partner, LLC and the Founder of Talk Social Networking. She has shared her expertise in her book, “Now What Do I Do. An Entrepreneur’s Guide to Getting to the Next Step with Social Media.”

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. The list goes on. We’ve all heard the buzz about “social media.” All the talk leads many to wonder, “How can I benefit from social media?” As an entrepreneur, I wondered the same. I was especially interested in how social media could help me grow my business. Odutoye does a great job explaining how to do just that.

In order to really benefit from social media, you have to do more than just sign up for an account. This is a fact that most people realize. But what do you do next? Odutoye outlines the crucial next steps. First, this book helps entrepreneurs to set goals they would like to achieve through social media. Next, it’s time to choose which social networking site would work best for them so that they can maximize their time. It also helps business owners to connect with their target audience.

I found this book to be extremely helpful. It is concise, easy to read, and very informative. I especially appreciated the FAQs and the Appendix. Odutoye discusses some very common questions about social media such as, “What is social media?” This section provides a review of the topics discussed in the book. The Appendix contains very valuable tools that can be used for social media marketing.

I would recommend that every business owner read this book. After I read it, I realized how important social media marketing is in business. Everyone should be using social media effectively and this book will certainly help to accomplish that goal.

Book Review: “Be U” By Mary Mary By Lynia White

Mary Mary is an R&B, urban gospel group that is known for inspirational music. The two fleshly sisters, Erica and Tina Campbell, grew up in Inglewood, California where they began singing in a local church choir. That was only the beginning.

Their talent led them to become three-time Grammy award winners. Several of their hits can be heard on the radio across the country. Some of their popular hits are “Get Up” and “God in Me.” In addition to singing, Mary Mary has launched a new phase of their career – writing. This talented duo has carried on their inspirational message in a new book – Be U.

The new book, just released in April 2010, conveys this inspirational message:

Be Honest.
Be Beautiful.
Be Intentional.
Be Strong. Be You!

The goal of this book is to motivate young women to be the “U” that God created you to be. What a powerful, inspirational message! In a world where people are constantly trying to be someone they aren’t, this message is right on time. Women especially need to be proud of who they are. It’s okay to be you. You are wonderful.

This book helps women to see themselves as God sees them – beautiful. Everyone is beautiful in God’s eyes. True beauty lies within. True beauty comes from our heart; not what we look like on the outside. Each individual is unique. Natural beauty and uniqueness are emphasized throughout this book. Mary Mary encourages their readers to celebrate the joy of being a woman.

I really appreciate the message that Mary Mary is spreading. I think that everyone who reads this book will walk away feeling inspired and uplifted.
