When I moved to Atlanta from DC in 1995 I didn’t know the difference between email and URL! Now as I sit here and share my thoughts with you, I can’t even imagine life without the internet. There is simply no way to comprehend the difference cyberspace has had and will continue to have on our lives. It’s a great time to be alive and to reap the immeasuarable benefits from today’s technology.
One of the developments of the internet that allows us to ‘stay connected’ is online social networking. The power to communicate with anyone anywhere at any time is as close as our keyboard. There are no boundaries, no limits and no roadblocks to ever keep us separated from one another. We can ‘see’ one another through “Skype”, talk with one another through on line tele-conferences and meet one another through networks such as LinkedIn, Plaxo and Ryze to name a few. Then, of course, there’s the new network that brings entrpereneurs together for socializing, idea exchange, information and for sisterhood. Drum roll, please, as I introduce: www.the5secondcommute.com
Designed primarily for women, the 5 second commute, gives us the opportunity to expand our reach by engaging with like minded women in a warm and encouraging ‘on line’ atmosphere. I love that The Joy of Connecting has this new social network as it’s on line home and welcome you to join in, to take part and to share your talents, passions and businesses with the rest of us! Participating is free and the value is priceless. Join the fun today. Don’t wait. Don’t hesitate. Experience for yourself our expanding community and allow us to include you as friends – our family of choice. Happy Networking off and on line. Welcome to the wonderful world of the internet. Bonnie Ross-Parker, CEO/Founder of The Joy of Connecting.
