Hey There Business Bloomers! Last Tuesday (01.07.2014) I had the honor of giving a presentation on Hangouts for Business to the audience at the Sunrise Mastermind Series, hosted by +Jeff Harrison and +Amy Anderson¬†(SwingPointMedia) on behalf of CV SCORE. ¬†During this presentation I spoke about the many possibilities that Google Hangouts and Hangouts on Air present to small business owners and solopreneurs. ¬†I am now super stoked because Jeff and Amy recorded the whole presentation, and now here it is! ¬†This video is not a complete walk through of Google Hangouts, but rather an introduction to them that highlights ways Hangouts can be used to benefit and promote yourself and your business! Despite technical difficulties at first, we got a live Hangout going during the presentation and the audience was able to interact with the Hangout participants, who came from both ends of the USA! Speaking of those great participants, let me go ahead and give them a nice shout out here – thank you for joining me in the Hangout demonstration +Janice Hurlburt¬†from California (BizyBizVA.com), +Carla Wynn¬†from Alabama (EnchantInc.com) and +Jim Ault¬†from Florida (LettuceAdoreYou.com)! Special honors go to +BrianRouley (rouzelle.net) for jumping in during the midst of technical difficulties and saving the day! Thanks to Brian, we got sound from the computer and the audience at the presentation was able to interact with the folks who joined the Hangout. The Sunrise Mastermind Series happens every Tuesday morning from 7:15am – 8:30am pst at the SCORE offices in the Whitewater Building on Cook Street in Palm Desert, CA. ¬†If you’d like to attend these great, free presentations, please register...
