Savvy Auntie Presents at SMBNY4

Dear Readers,

I was asked to present at the Social Media Breakfast NY #4 earlier this month about Branding: Building, Managing and Thriving Online. Me? Talking about my brand? But I just launched in July! What an honor!

Here is the presentation. I was having a bad hair day, I apologize.

Auntie Melanie


  1. Melanie - So I've heard a TON about your site and been meaning to check it out for awhile but finally found my way here. I just poked around for awhile and ended up watching your presentation at SMBNY and I am completely hooked.
    On the one hand, I work in PR for one of the largest consumer agencies in the world and love it. I love working with brands, I love everything media - social and traditional - and enjoy eating, sleeping and breathing my job so I am immensely impressed by what you've accomplished.
    On the other hand, I am an Aunt to three (soon to be five!) of the most precious children in the entire world. I live 40 minutes from them and can't go more than a week without seeing them. Their pictures paper my office and bedroom and I call at least twice a week to talk to them on the phone.
    Rambling, perhaps, but you've struck a cord and I realized I'm a part of a demographic I never knew existed but now see the relevance and potential strength of. Thank you for taking the time to bring that to life for thousands and ... me.

  2. You may think that ice hockey is too challenging to learn as an adult but starting as an adult is very doable and starting as an adult even has its advantages. Ice hockey is more difficult to learn than the majority of team sports because you have to learn how to skate which causes the area learn how to play ice hockey.
