I love technology. I am a geeky girl and a technology cheerleader. I’ve been this way all my life. Over the last 30 years, even when I made a living singing, performing and teaching, I used the most advanced and accessible recording and presentation technologies of the time. Some call me a “technology cheerleader,” as I sing the praises of all the new and exciting ways to promote a business online through my popular Web site and tutorials. I was an award-wining educator for many years, teaching thousands of children in state-arts-funded residencies. Now I teach adults how to reap the benefits of online technology.
I’ve spent the last few years connecting to a large online community and audience. I am very active on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. I actively comment on technology blogs all over the country and Twitter chats on the topic of blogging. I have located and developed many key players in the world of social media and can count on them to be very enthusiastic joint-marketing partners. The very nature of social media is a great boon to any marketing effort.
I taught and spoke in front of large audiences (400 – 1000) for over 12 years as an educator and performer, and now I speak to large groups in two tracks:
- Technology 101 audiences – to inspire and inform small business owners on the power of online marketing
- Tech Savvy audiences – to showcase new systems to use in marketing

Ok – so this is GREAT! I say Thank God for Phyllis my Geeky cheerleader! Seriously, I would be so lost without you! You are helping me so much with getting my newly released cd out on the internet. You do get me to do some things I never would have known about, but then Ah-Hah – I hire you to do all the things I can't even imagine handling!! And through-out our experience, you are always kind and thoughtful which is what I need. We artists are so delicate ( as you know from being a performer yourself) and once the music is finished, we are moving on to the next unwritten piece w/out a care for marketing! Dear Phyllis, I just want to say a mighty thank you for your brilliance, your consciousness, your energy, your true “geekiness” and your friendship.
If anyone can make sense out of the myriad technology/social media offerings out there — it's YOU! Although I would say that you are much more than a geeky girl!
Thanks Kathleen and Renie!
Let's get geeky!
I personally get so bored on Twitter. I love connecting with people I really know on Facebook, though. And then there's the other 50 or so Social Media and bookmarking sites. All this could get to be addictive!
Hey Phyllis– Keep cheering us on–with your help I might make it into the digital age yet. Your posts are always fun and helpful too, even for beginners like me. Thanks for caring!
Hi Phyllis, Love the positivity you generate and your enthusiasm for staying ahead of the latest trends. With your computer savvy, I predict your client list is going to get huge! Thanks for the support!
This is such a great and useful place to visit. Visit? Heck, I may just move in permanently.
Thanks Phyllis for finding all these cool tools! Always great to see what is working for other people! Great information. Plus love the new look of your site!
yes – it can be addictive! I should show you how to join the Twitter Chats. I have so much fun with these – especially the one on blogging. Maybe I'll do a post about it.
Thanks Linda and Kira – and Andy – well I will have to find a roomy widget – or would you prefer a plugin? (geeky jokes are just weird – yes?)
