Brittany's public, controversial, and very brave decision has helped me reflect upon my own three years of living with this disease, and the gripping fear I face with each MRI, as I hold my breath and watch the doctor pull up the screen on his laptop.
How would I promote myself online as a service professional, minus Facebook? Here's a list of the tools that I think are most effective for those who are interested in maintaining their brand image, engaging potential customers and generating leads.
