Kim Garst: Twitter – Your New Power Networking Business Tool

Posted by Levine Communications Office on April 12, 2013

By Kim Garst

Kim Garst

Before the Internet and social media channels, gaining access to the people you need to connect with required a great deal of work, time, and often times, a degree of proximity. Today, with social media, you can be anywhere in the world and connect to the people who are critical to growing your business.

The need for networking hasn’t changed, but the tools have — and leveraging those tools to tap into that wealth of opportunity is easier than you might realize.

Tools vs. Strategy

With new social media platforms emerging at an alarming rate, it can be easy to discount the social media revolution as a fad. What you need is a strategic plan — and a platform that can help you accomplish that plan.

How do you know which platform is right for you? What I’ve found is that it’s best to identify your target audience and your business goals. Are you trying to increase sales? Are you looking for strategic partners or additional qualified staff? Are you targeting consumers or do you want to connect with other businesses?

Getting Started With Social Media

If I had to choose a favorite social media platform (or a great place to start networking), I would pick Twitter. I can say with certainty that Twitter is the number one tool I’ve used to grow my business. It’s amazing how much relationship-building you can do in just 140 characters! Twitter is incredibly dynamic, allowing you to customize your experience to meet your networking goals.

Twitter in and of itself can be overwhelming. You’ve got to have a plan and use it strategically to accomplish that plan. If I could give you just a few critical tips they would be:

● Filter your Twitter stream by building lists so that you can closely follow the conversations of a small group of influencers. This allows you to interact and build closer relationships.
● Use Twitter as a search engine. Attempting to tune into the noise of all of Twitter is like trying to look at every webpage on the Internet without using Google, Yahoo, or Bing to filter the information. Using Twitter’s search feature allows you to zone in on the information that is relevant to you.
● Respond to every retweet (RT) and person that reacts to one of your tweets. Keep the conversation going while being yourself. Your followers will appreciate a live, real human being’s response — it can be rare these days!

Of those currently using Twitter, 34 percent of marketers say they have generated leads using the social media platform, and 20 percent have closed deals.

Twitter Success Stories

No matter how much practical, theoretical information I read, I tend to learn more by reading about the successes of others who have used Twitter to network and take their careers or businesses to the next level. Here are some of my favorites….

Check Out This Batsh*t Crazy Trailer For ‘Wrath Of The Crows’!

Posted by Levine Communications Office on April 10, 2013



In the film, “In a dirty and narrow jail, Larry (Domiziano Arcangeli), Deborah (Debbie Rochon), Hugo (Brian Fortune), Hernest (John Game), and Liza (Tara Cardinal), the prisoners, are obliged to suffer injustices from the guards and from their chief, the officer. Above all of them is the judge. Nobody ever sees him, but he is the one that sets the rules, and he’s feared by inmates and guards alike. The prisoners know how to behave and what are the rules to be respected, but they don’t remember anything of their former life outside the walls of the fortress of their prison.

The prisoners’ sole memory, slowly emerging during the story, is the Great Evil that led them to the fortress. And the long, long time they have been imprisoned in it. Suddenly a new prisoner makes an out from nothing-like appearance: PRINCESS (Tiffany Shepis). She is a beautiful lady, dressed only in a crow feathers coat, shining and sensual. Her arrival causes curiosity, envy, suspicion, and a deep sexual agitation.

In a very short time Princess reveals her dark and supernatural nature: She can move objects with the power of her mind and is extremely strong. As Liza soon discovers, escape is just a dream for all of the prisoners. The rude nightmarish projected images they can see outside the windows of their cells make them give up thoughts of escape. But you can’t escape from yourself or your past.

After execution, Deborah and Liza find themselves disoriented, soulless, and empty in the Lost Souls Prison, where they meet an old blind man named Charlie (Gerry Shanahan), “The Soulkeeper”. The souls are dark bodies, sealed into inviolable cells. But Deborah manages to reunite with her soul and then attacks the old man in order to free Liza.

The two of them find an exit, but escape is everything but easy. Soon they realize that the whole fortress, outside and inside, is just a terrifying mirror game where reality is confused with illusion and nightmares become true, throwing the two girls in an endless vortex of terror and madness.

Medium Helping People Connect to Their Healing Abilities

Posted by Levine Communications Office on April 7, 2013


CALGARY — Helping people connect to God and develop their own healing abilities is Gail Thackray’s passion.

And the world-renowned spiritual educator and medium is in Calgary this weekend to deliver her message during the Body Soul & Spirit Expo.

“I believe we can all do that,” says Thackray, a spiritual healer, about people’s ability to connect with the other side.

“We can manifest things in our lives. We can change our lives. We can heal the many problems that we have in our lives and everybody can do this. And so really my mission is to help people to open up and realize that they have a lot more power over their lives than they think they do.”

The Expo is taking place in the Big Four Building at Stampede Park. It runs until Sunday. Thackray, author of several metaphysical books, will be speaking Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Friday night’s session is Manifesting Abundance Workshop, Saturday it is Spiritual Journeys — Mediumship & Healing Demonstration, John of God, and Sunday it is Become a Medium & Healing Channel Workshop. John of God is a well-known healer in Brazil.

For more information about the Expo, visit http://www.bodysoulspiritexpo.com.

Thackray, who is originally from England but now makes Los Angeles home, has a mission to help people experience alignment with the Divine Source (God) and to bring this powerful energy into their own lives.

She teaches Reiki, mediumship and animal communication and other ways to develop people’s psychic senses.

Thackray is also the host of the documentary series “Gail Thackray’s Spiritual Journeys,” interviewing spiritual leaders and experiencing places of supernatural significance. Travelling the world, Gail leads groups to see John of God in Brazil as well as other spiritual adventures.

“Definitely people are becoming more spiritual,” says Thackray. “We are connected to a higher supreme being. When things are more difficult in our lives, people start looking within and saying ‘the things outside are not working anymore. How can I help myself?’ And I think when people do get more connected themselves and with their spirituality, they can find solutions to many of our problems.

“I think all illnesses that we have, whether it’s emotional or whether it’s physical, is kind of a negative that is attracted around us and we can actually heal ourselves. And many people do this with faith. They just pray to God or Jesus or whatever they believe. And you know that works.”

But most people find it difficult to believe.

“I do believe there’s kind of an invisible spiritual world out there and we can get help and that everything we have in our lives, whether it’s physical ailments or whether it’s financial stress or some emotional problem we have, basically it’s just energy and things we’ve attracted around ourselves. We can combat. We can dissolve that,” she says
