Client Testimonials

“As someone who has used Facebook since 2004, I never thought I would be someone who would benefit from this seminar. Mindie’s advice far exceeded my expectations and I now have a more strategic approach to social networking and a true appreciation for the power it holds.”
~Allison Castellana – City of Crisfield Events Planner

“Mindie understands how to use social networking better than anyone else out there. Business people who aren’t using these platforms to spread their message are missing out on incredible marketing opportunities. But just having a presence on these sites isn’t enough. Mindie explains the do’s and don’ts of social networking.”
Cathy Bassett
CMBassett Consulting, LLC
Former Press Secretary to Congressman Wayne Gilchrest

“I attended both Session 1 & Session 2 with the intention of learning the basics of using Social Media to market a business. I could not be more pleased with the results. Mindie is a wealth of knowledge on the topic of Viral Networking as well as a highly engaging speaker. She got my attention within the first minute of her presentation and kept it for the entirety of both sessions.”   ~Cheryl McPherson – CloseCall America

“Mindie’s session at the Bay to Ocean Writer’s Conference opened up a new world for many of the people in attendance. I have some knowledge of the subject matter, and the session provided many pointers and helpful hints that I did not want the session to end. There were many questions from the audience because they wanted to know more and more and more. It was an excellent session.”
~Rick Barton – Caroline County Administrator / Writer (Ranger Rick)

“Just after taking the initiative to hesitantly set up a personal Facebook page as well as a Fan page, I came across Mindie’s seminar. This was a totally foreign topic to me -Viral Marketing so I jumped at the chance to attend. Mindies’ professionalism combined with her engaging personality and incredible spot on marketing expertise, make this a must attend course.”
~Lisa Ludwig, Managing Director, Lower Eastern Shore Heritage Council

Mindie offfers a great seminar on Viral Network Marketing. Her presentation is lively and her information is current, hard to do in the fast paced world. But the best part is her ability to give practical how-to advice that one can instantly apply to their business. Thanks for a great class Mindie!
~Captain Iris Clarke, Selina II Sailing Charters, St. Michaels Business Association

Mindie is a great resource to use for Economic Development. She is a font of knowledge with her many years at Dept. of Business and Economic Development.
Along with many others, we participate with Tourism, Arts and Downtown Development (TADD) on the Eastern Shore, and we are currently working on a Eat, Drink and Buy Art promotion. I just attended her latest class in Cambridge; Part II of a Three Part Series on how to use Social Media to aggressively market your small business. This workshop was fun and very informative. Mindie is also currently writing a book about hauntings on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and including Caroline County in it.
Since I’m Irish and she’s Irish we like the same things!! I would recommend Mindie for anything business or social! 

~Kathy Mackel, Director of Caroline Office of Tourism, Denton MD
