All About Me…

I am a 42 year old mother to three children ages 16, 13 and 11 years old. At present I am studying full time as a student at Massey University…I am actually trying to study at home using the materials from Massey!

Just entering into my second year and as part of my Social Media for Business paper, here I am writing a blog about how useful it can be to share information about your business to the unknown audience who sits somewhere in the world surfing the web.

10 years ago I was working as a qualified Dispensing Optician and store manager in the north west of England, never would I have believed anyone who told me that I would be shortly be moving to the other side of the world, let alone returning to full time study whilst juggling family life.

Now living in Auckland, life is (as kiwis say…) sweet as!  The children have adapted to new schools and sports and my husband is now home every night after work, as opposed to our UK style of living where he would return home Friday nights and set back to work early Monday morning.  When people tell you living in NZ is all about the lifestyle, for us it really was!

Anyway, on with ‘The blog’…. each week I will be posting one or two posts aimed at how you can use Social Media to benefit your business. Hopefully you will find them informative and with any luck you may even find them interesting and want to let me know your thoughts. I would love to read your feedback and anything else you would like to contribute. Enjoy!
