Here I am – ready to reinvent myself yet again. Yes, it’s time to move along the massive buffet line of choices of what to do in the world, and I’m excited to share my plans with you!
For the last 5 years, two months and 8 days (give or take!), I’ve owned and operated The Incredible Chef, an amazing personal chef service. And while I’ve enjoyed that part of the buffet table, I’d like to explore a little more of what’s out there in the food world, specifically in the world of rapidly expanding social media (Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, et al).
I’m fascinated with the massive opportunities in the online world, and can’t wait to help food and food-related companies find ways to capitalize on these avenues, growing their client bases and increasing their visibility (and bottom line!). It’s a natural extension of the foodie world I’m already working with and utilizing the social media connections I’ve established so far. In my opinion, the foodies have done a fabulous job of integrating these opportunities and they are truly seeing results for their companies…and I’m going to help them take it to the next level!
And don’t worry, I’m still cooking for my current personal chef clients, keeping my hands in the pie, so to speak! But that is an area of the buffet line I’ll be scaling back a bit.
So, here I go, off to this fresh, almost-out-of-the-oven end of the buffet table, and I’m open for suggestions on what to “sample” first! If you know of food businesses that wonder “what in the world would I do on Twitter” or just want to find out more ways to reach their customers, please send them my way.
I’ve already blasted off to a good start, talking with several companies – chocolatiers, beer and wine companies, restaurants, etc – and the interest is definitely there! And look for posts in the next few days of a couple recent foodie events I’ve attended with lots of great details.
The buffet is open – bon appetit!
