I cannot believe we are in February already! It is my favourite month of the year as it is my birthday month – yes I take an entire month to celebrate – and it is Valentine’s Day (and being the soppy romantic that I am, I absolutely love being spoilt with flowers and chocolates). My hubby and I will once again be going on a double date with friends of ours – we have been doing this for many years already (when booking a table for 4 people on Valentine’s Day, the restaurant hostess always gets a little suspicious, I’d love to know what she thinks we are up to).

If you own a business, work in social media/marketing, are unemployed and/or looking for a new venture, this Valentine’s month, why not spoil yourself by investing in a social media course for yourself (and a partner/friend)? There are 2.4 billion Facebook users that you could be targeting for your business (or future business), but you will not achieve results if you don’t know what you’re doing. You need a powerful Facebook strategy that convinces people to use your service or buy your product, and you need to know the best way to do this to ensure you are not throwing money away.
