When I first signed up for LinkedIn over two years ago, I did so with the understanding that it would connect me with others who had similar interests.

And, this social media portal delivered… in spades.  I have reconnected with some former military colleagues.  I have gotten help through the LinkedIn groups to meet some great people.

Three key questions every small business owner should ask their social media vendor

Facebook fan pages are becoming main stream for small businesses in Texas, but small business owners should consider some key questions when engaging professional social media providers.

I have recently taken over an account for a small business on the north side.  The owner had engaged another provider for social media services.   As I begin to take over this engagement for her, I found that she didn’t ask her current provider these critical questions.

Local Charity Needs Suggestions/Help

Hello!  My name is Lindsay Richard and I am a board memeber for a charity run in Stone Oak called Heart Smiles.  You can read more about our mission of saving Ghana Orphans at or follow us on Facebook.
