If anybody tells you otherwise they are selling you snake oil. There is no such thing as social media. The collective users of Twitter, LinkedIn, Badoo, MySpace, Friendster, and Renren are still less than the total number of users on Facebook. So let’s stop calling it social media, and let’s start calling it what it really is…Facebook. So why is Angry Hossein…well angry today? Let me tell you.
Social Media is Dead

My verdict on IHRSA in Los Angeles
Do you remember my 13 Reasons why I thought you shouldn’t go to IHRSA? Of course, I was being facetious. You don’t want to miss IHRSA. But I did have one hesitancy. It was a seed planted in my head by our VP of Communications, Leigh (who you may recognize from such webinars as “Understanding Retail: The art & Science of Retail-ology” and “How to create sales scripts for your staff – part 2”. Both available on demand!). So do you want to know the one reason I really didn’t want to go to IHRSA?

Opportunity in numbers
I think one of the reasons we are all attracted to the health and wellness industry is the people. I’ve worked in lots of places (even had a job at McDonald’s for one day) and I can’t think of an industry that has brought together a group as energetic, excited, and motivated as us (sure I’m the software guy but let me join the group for just a second!) And since I know that people are very often motivated by numbers, I thought I’d throw out a few for you. Nothing ground breaking – just a reminder of why we must stay so energetic, excited and motivated and what exactly our opportunity is.
