The Select Guest
Featured 12.4-12.10.17 | In case you hadn't noticed, social media is a thing. Like, a really, really big thing. It's pretty much taken over the world, has replaced most every other form of communication and, much to the dismay of many of us Generation X'ers, it isn't going anywhere anytime soon. And a good percentage of my reasoning behind starting this site was to make sure that we use the medium for good, which is why I love what these ladies are doing with their social media company, Socialfly. The duo, both of whom have hustle in their blood, help personalities and businesses navigate this semi-new frontier and use it in a positive and beneficial way. Which is how we should all look social media, right? Welcome to Stephanie + Courtney's week.
