March: Establish your social media presence
· Create accounts at Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. If you’re too busy or uncomfortable, hire a professional to do this for you.
· Get a professional picture in electronic format. Upload this to your profile at Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and any other sites you choose.
· Create a blog. Establish links between the blog and the services I describe (above). If you’re too busy or uncomfortable, hire a professional to do this for you.
· Establish some mechanism for storing your passwords. There are several available, but I recommend using an online free password manager called LastPass. Finding yourself handicapped because you cannot log in to a web site is downright silly. Do not let this happen to you. I made more money in 2009 helping people recover lost and forgotten passwords than I did killing viruses and malware.
