Hi Folks,

Welcome to Social Focus by CG. I am CG – Cheryl Gnad.

I am a long time Wichi-TON (from Wichita, Ks). I grew up wanting to be a “good” influence on the youth and began my career in music education, especially instrumental music. My love for the arts found its outlet in instrumental music, my second love was visual art. Upon marrying and moving back to Wichita after 5 years of teaching and beginning my family, I continued teaching only part-time at the School of the Magdalen, Wichita State University and Butler County Community College, while I gained my Masters in Music Education. Later I joined the corporate world working in the aviation industry at Bombardier Learjet, and then for the health industry at Via Christi. Soon new things were on the horizon…

I came to love social media because of my strong desire to promote business development and to grow my own business (Out of the Box Gifts & Incentives and eComm Strategies). That seed was planted when I worked at The Coleman Company in the marketing and packaging department. There I learned the art of branding and product promotion. Due to a lay off, I started to apply what I learned to my personal business, and it was then that I sought to “advertise” to as many as possible that I was indeed “open for business”. I found that social media venues such as Facebook, and Linkedin – were my best friends. With  my many connections with local business owners, it wasn’t too long before they were asking me how they could promote themselves on social media, as well. Some even suggested I start my own business in marketing other people’s business’. With the training and mentorship Kate Buck Jr. of Let’s Get Social, (see below) I found my niche, and did just that!

This was the beginning of a great relationship with Social Media Marketing and Management!

I have now been in business for over 3 years and worked with a variety of businesses. From a heating & air conditioning company, roofing, plumbing, chiropractor practice and mental health practice just to name a few. I’ve done several consultings for Mary Kay representatives and other direct sales businesses, and did consulting with other small businesses like a car wash, plumbing, online medical supplies and records, bed and breakfast establishments (one in Nova Scotia!), and a political campaign candidate!

www.letsgetsocial.comMy training in online marketing began with leaders in the industry like Kate Buck, Jr. of KBJ Online, (Lets Get Social) an Austin based social media management and consulting agency,

Kim Garst of Social Boom!1 year training with Kim Garst, of Social Boom Social Selling Made Simple ,

Sandi Krakowski of A Real Change, Inc.and best of all, I am Certified after 2 years training with Sandi Krakowski of A Real Change, Inc. and who is considered one of the Top 20 Social Media Power Influencers In The World (Forbes). 

These are leaders in the industry and KNOW their way around online sales! Sandi Krakowski, alone, is helping hundreds, if not thousands of small businesses become established AND is helping large corporations in their own marketing processes! There isn’t anyone better to learn from for that kind of experience that works!
