Why Slow and Steady Wins the Race in Social Media

A lot of the times, new business pop up and their owners are so excited about this new venture that they think they need to see quick growth on social media. This mindset may lead them to make some rash decisions such as buying followers or spending too much on ads. And it may look impressive to investors to have gained over 1,000 followers in under a month, but savvy investors know there's more to it than that.

The Jocelyn =)

Ahhh I just heard Ed Helms' voice on a commercial! That made my night!

Ahem, excuse me. I'm Jocelyn and I'm kind of a nerd. Aside from being a Political Science major at the University of Central Florida, I am a gamer and a musician. Well.. I wouldn't call me a musician, but I play a few instruments (bass guitar being my favorite). I'm the biggest Star Wars fan in the world!! As I stated previously, I'm a big time gamer. I worked at GameStop for over a year and half and I play all systems (handheld and consoles) and all game types. Obviously being a Political Science major, I am quite vocal when it comes to my political views.

I think those are all the passions I have. Oh, and the Office is the best show ever! Season 5 on DVD September 8!!!

And that's all you need to know about Jocelyn!
