Anyone who says "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", really needs to get out more and probably doesn't have a LinkedIn or an about.me account. I've never been one to actually say those things, but I have been a person who would easily get comfortable with what I liked to do in social media or how I wanted to present myself in a professional manner. A resume, some nice business cards and an email address were the standards. A website was a luxurious bonus in my creative eyes. Unable to decide on how I wanted things to flow from page to page for a website, I'd grow frustrated and end up with nothing. Something was broken and it was beyond time to fix it.
Oh and a Twitter account helps too. I would add Faecbook because it's popular and easily accessible as well but personally, all the different Facebook pages can be a little overwhelming to not overlap personal interests with things similar to your field of expertise. For me, at least. So, in mending things that tend to be broken, I pray I am on the right path. I don't do the work that I do for the glory whatsoever. HIV/AIDS consulting chose me and I surrendered to it's call because there are people in this world that are sitting in a dark place, wishing there was someone that they could relate to, someone who's been in their shoes. For them, I keep pushing to spread the message of hope, inspiration, and victory in eliminating stigma, access to care for all People living with HIV/AIDS and for the cure. It's coming and I believe it will be in my lifetime. Until then, I will keep mending me so that the message is heard loud and clear on all four corners of the earth.
