Good episode? Give it some love!
Episode 2 - Escape the Tractor Beam

In this second episode we look at social media and how to consider using it to help us be BETTER at what we do. We also go out on location, and take our life in our hands!

It might sound like I'm on a mission to upset the apple cart when it comes to social media, and I guess I am a bit. Taking control of your use is the key - after all, we don't want external things to control us do we?

In this episode we cover:

Sending messages from the future
Thinking differently about what successful people do - and stealing it to help us
Why some social media is rubbish
How to break the vicious circle using technology
Ditching the 'News Feed' (it's the secret Tractor Beam)
The difference between Profiles, Pages and Groups - did you know?
How Arnie came back through Facebook
Getting outside - go on, do it now (well after you've finished listening eh)
We use bad grammar in one section - did you spot it? We did it on purpose, honest guv'.
Why the PowerPuff girls are messing with your head
