I have actually created The Digital Strategist's Notebook page.

A friend of 15 years told me yesterday, "Dude, you are the shit with this social media stuff. Thank you for that post." I was struck by two things: 1. my friend did not really understand what I did for a living or why I blogged; 2. the information here on uber.la could and should improve my friend's business.

So, how can I get you to listen? What can I do to show my good will and intention in writing this blog on "social media strategy?"

I have a dream. It is a dream of your success at what ever you do. And if there are ways that I can help, personally or professionally, I will do it. I am a connector and a communicator. There is no catch. I am writing this blog for you and your business success using social media. Everything else is a fringe benefit. If we become friends that is the greatest benefit of all.

Here are the best starting points for small business:
