Learning how to turn social media “friends” and “followers” into real relationships that matter is the main mission of this blog. We will also discuss how to win friends and influence people online — and offline. This is a work in progress, and I am continuing to learn as we go. Your constructive comments and questions will be appreciated.
I’m a semi-retired former Assistant Professor of Social Psychology and a professional networker specializing in social media relationships. I am the author of “Secrets of Empowering Relationships.” I love friendships and business networking.
After receiving my Master of Science Degree in Social Psychology from Purdue University, I continued to study interpersonal attraction and relationships for two more years at Purdue, supported by a Pre-Doctoral Research Fellowship and a National Science Foundation Grant.
I have been a management consultant to numerous businesses and government agencies, including the U.S. Office of Economic Development. I have also built several huge network marketing organizations and have presented hundreds of MLM training programs.
