Here’s an overview of what I talked about:

Working on a Milestone!

I’m approaching a big number: One.

This is going to be an emotional month for me. One year ago on August 18, my journey began when I was laid off. This website was then created later that month and my first blog post was written on August 29.

So much has happened since then! It’s been an incredible trip, but one that is only getting started. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be taking a look back at what I’ve learned along the way.

Big Break Facebook Ad Coupons

A month and a half ago, I told you about the Big Break for Small Business promotion sponsored by American Express and Facebook. Other than the great grand prize, the nice perk was a $100 Facebook ad coupon code for all who participated. Well, no one has received those codes. I finally reached out to AmEx and got some information.

Well, maybe not really. But I took a closer look at a really interesting infographic that claims the highest click through rates and lowest cost per click on Facebook ads are in India and Egpyt.
