My son, Mike, who has been helping me with the development of marketing materials and my social media outreach (since I can't get my head around Twitter) has just been named Director of the Social Media Division of OMG National, a South Florida company that assists companies establish an online presence and develop branding messages. I consider this a huge deal for someone only 1-1/2 years out of college (during which time he interned for multiple organizations, including the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee). Nothing makes me happier than seeing him succeed at something he has worked hard to achieve.
I'll share my pride in my other son in a separate blog entry on another day, but since I've heaped such praise on Mike, it's appropriate that I do the other things that mothers are prone to do -- namely, embarrass their children. Having given myself permission to do so, I'd like to share with you one of my favorite pictures of my son as a baby.
