On Friday November 12th we interviewed Synthia Smith of Cherrish the Possibilities Personal and Business Development Coaching.
Watch it it below:
Synthia A. Smith, M.S., is the President of Cherish The Possibilities (CTP) Business & Personal Development Coaching. Under Synthia’s guidance, CTP Business & Personal Development Coaching has become known as a coaching firm that specializes in developing superior services and products that deliver powerful results which empower CTP clients to increase their business or personal success.
Synthia takes great pride in developing and delivering coaching programs, products and services that allow CTP Business Development or Personal Development coaching clients to gain the skills, abilities, insights and motivation to achieve increased levels of Business or Personal Success.
Along comes Paper.li. This new application allows you to take any account, list, or hash tag (#), and create a newspaper type view of tweets.
Here is how it works. Paper.li takes whatever stream you give it, whether an account, hash tag, or list, and strips all the links to websites. Then the website creates a website featuring, not the tweets, but the content from the website linked. Furthermore, Paper.li classifies the content by category and also creates a section for pictures and videos contained within the stream.
In addition to a pretty cool tool it also has some additional functionality. Once created you can choose to promote your paper. With choices between daily, weekly, or monthly publishing you can choose to have Paper.li to send out a promotional tweet on you account. Also, you can choose between just a plain tweet, or Paper.li can choose 3 to 5 tweeps to mention on your behalf.
The SacBizTweets list has over 290 accounts listed in it. Daily I get a broad picture of what is going on in the lives of area businesses without having to plow through the 140 character tweets, and without the text only updates.
It is worth mentioning that before I was using Paper.li I pretty much listed any and all companies in the Sacramento Area. The paper eventually began mentioning an account repeatedly who was merely tweeting links to benign pages of their website. After 3 or 4 days in a row, I finally de-listed the company featured. I am finding that curating the list is providing a far greater product, but I am happy to share also that I have removed only a couple from the list of nearly 300. Not too shabby.
What do you think? Check it out and share your thoughts.
True story. In recent months I have been collaborating with videographer Jim Foust of Jim Foust Media Design to produce several live events for organizations around Sacramento. Beginning with some events for the Social Media Club, the Sacramento Business Journal, and the Association For Wedding Professionals International we have broadcasted and interacted with viewers from all over the world. What makes these programs unique is not only thier distribution online, but the ability for those tuning in to chat with eachother online, and to submit questions and comments to the moderators online- making for a truly interactive event.
Now its our turn in front of the camera.
On Friday we will begin with an interview with Synthia Smith, Personal and Business Development Coach and Planning Commissioner for the City of Rancho Cordova. As President of Cherish the Possibilities Personal and Business Development Coaching, or CTP Coaching, Synthia has some great perspectives regarding growing her own business and achieving goals through a trying economy. We are also excited to discuss her work on the Planning Commision as well as her contribution to the All American City Award earned by the City of Rancho Cordova. This broadcast will begin at 10am. We will have live video from this event embedded here at MarketSmall.net!
After our Friday broadcast I will also be emceeing a Crash Course on Social Media for Small Business, hosted by the Social Media Club of Sacramento at the Sacramento Press offices downtown. The principal presentations will be offered by local businesses already leveraging Facebook and Twitter for their businesses.
What to expect:
- You’ll hear interesting case studies from three area small businesses that can understand your limitations, challenges and opportunities.
- The course will specifically cover three tools: Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare.
- You’ll have the chance to ask questions about how these tools can impact your business.
- Jared Thomas, of Thomas Chiropractic (@jaredthomas) will speak about using Twitter.
- Korina Huizar, of Fleet Feet Sacramento, will speak about using Facebook. (http://www.facebook.com/FleetFeetSacramento)

This program will be available through the SMCSAC channel on Ustream.
These types of programs are exciting to participate in.
