Sue Koch is celebrating 10 years in her business as a social media success catalyst, working with large organizations, including Oracle, Accenture, and The American Marketing Association, and entrepreneurs.

She is a high-energy professional who has a side gig teaching WERQ®, a cardio dance workout based on the hottest pop and hip hop music. Sue shared honestly about how the joy and energy she gets from teaching dance fitness classes help her navigate the inevitable ups and downs of owning a business.

I’ll second Sue’s suggestion of having an additional commitment outside of your business that you won’t cancel. I have frequently said that my work with this blog has helped me keep focused on my business.

You might be wondering if someone who has to engage with social media for a living has a love/hate relationship with it, and the short answer is yes. Sue and I talked about strategies for managing social media so it doesn’t manage you, including how to filter your feed and save your sanity.
