Blogging came along for Sherry Heyl at a low point in her life. However, the woman who holds the title of CEO and Idealist realized blogs could offer a way to express her own creativity. She quickly realized that blogs could also translate into the business world to be used to bring back the humanity that many organizations seemed to have lost along their way.
Blogger Story Teller: Sherry Heyl, What a Concept!
I started blogging during a period of my life that can be described as the "melt down." Perhaps some people would not admit to that, but I have come to realize, no sense hiding it - everyone knows anyway. I have always felt that I was constantly being hushed, pushed aside, and never given a chance to express myself.
This finally led to what felt like was a period of time when I wanted to get in everyone's face and say LOOK AT ME, which led to the meltdown which led to the need to just surrender....and at that time I was introduced to the concept of blogging. I immediately saw blogging as a way for businesses to rediscover that it is the people that they serve and their ideas that creates our economy and innovation.
I was inspired to learn all that I can and add my experiences as a recruiter, career counselor and sales person to the mix of social media consultation. I have been inspired by how my clients have awakened to the idea of what it means to connect on a personal level as opposed to sterilized conversations and approved procedures. I am now writing a book of my observations of how social media has the potential to bring the humanity back to the corporate world.
