Posted at 09:00h in social mediaCall me crazy, but I've always believed in paying things forward. I truly believe that talent will only get you so far and that doors need to be opened in order for someone to be successful. In fact, that's one of the reasons this blog exists - to give a voice to those who offer a unique and valuable perspective - and experience - but don't have the platform to do so. I remember several years ago when I was teaching as an adjunct instructor and spoke with a student about her career. She was on the Dean's List and acing my Flash class when I first started up the word of mouth marketing practice at my current agency. The practice was taking off so I asked her for her resume, which was waiting in my inbox when I got home that evening. I hired her shortly thereafter.
