I missed the deadline of publishing this newsletter and I am sorry.

The adoptive city of Houston and most of the Texas Gulf Coast recently went through what many called the worst flooding in United States history due to Hurricane Harvey.

This city and state always pull through the toughest times and this is no different.

In this newsletter, you will hear how you can help many houston area residents recover and heal from the floods in addition to the articles below.

Note: The first article is about a Houston company who are feeding the first responders and others in the recovery process from the storm.

July Newsletter: Canada Day

By Cheval John

Social media has reminded us of how connected we are in the world.

We are more aware of what is happening due to social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, etc.

Since today is July 1st, I want to wish my friends a happy canada day as they are celebrating 150 years as a nation.

I also want to start this newsletter with the news of being named a Houston Top 25 Social Media Power Influencer for the second consecutive year.

It was through hard work and consistently providing value to my audience that allowed me to join fellow social media colleagues in the fourth largest city in the United States on this list.

Another milestone was having the opportunity to speak yesterday at Social Media Day Houston about why business owners should embrace live streaming.

The event occurred simultaneously with other events surrounding Social Media Day which started in 2010 by Mashable.

Newsletter For May 1st

By Cheval John

If time was made of 💰, would you spend it wisely? To the majority, time is not well spent because they are doing work that they hate only because they have to pay the bills or provide for their family. Nothing is wrong with the above. However, they bring their bitterness and misery of their work to their personal lives and it affects their relationships with their friends and families. The truth is if we spend out time wisely in doing the work that we love, our personal lives will be much more joyful. Even if it will take years to build the business that fulfills your dreams while you are in the work that you hate, at least you will feel much better about yourself because you woken up from the slumber of the 9-5 work week. #entrepreneurship #fulfilling #goals #businessofone #train #station #socialmedia #VallanoMedia
