Feel So Different by Sinéad O'Connor

These are the opening lines of the song:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
Courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference]
I am not like I was before
I thought that nothing would change me..

Questions posed by the interview: Social media Tips

  • What level of social media activity should you commit to? It is very important to be consistent and to avoid short periods of activity followed by nothing for weeks. So, for example, one post per week every week is better than posting daily for a few days and then not posting for weeks.
  • How could you make better use of your knowledge? If you don't have time to write or find this difficult, consider outsourcing. This can be both effective and affordable.
  • How well do you use LinkedIn and how active are you? Remember to always send a personalised connection request and either remind the person when and where you met or give a reason for wanting to connect.
