ACWN Newsletter | April 2009 Special Guest! We had a very special visitor in March, Alberta Wooldridge, of Mary Kay, joined us for lunch. Alberta is one of the founding members of ACWN. This fall our group will be celebrating 20 years. Wow! That’s quite an accomplishment!
All Things Online Our guest speaker for March was Stephanie Farrell, of www.myskinnystory.com. And, the subject was the world wide web. Stephanie shared some valuable email tips with us. How to forward an email to multiple recipients without revealing the addresses, for example. For our businesses, she shared a little bit about email marketing and websites. This is something that she works on with her husband in their advertising business, Questall. Have you ever heard of a “Blog”? Have you ever bought anything online? What is Ebay? Paypal? She shared with us how to find driving directions, and how to search for information online. She also told us about “social networks” like Twitter, Facebook and Myspace. It was fun and there was a lot of group participation. Thanks Stephanie!
Special Thanks to Our Guests
