How to Remove Facebook Business Manager

I have a client that was upset about using the Business Manager tool on Facebook. Her business partner had turned it on but they later found that they couldn’t use Facebook apps or get back to the personal area without a lot of trouble. I discovered this myself when it first came out. As an internet […]

The Social Media Illusion

“You look SO busy!” This is what I hear every time I see someone in person that I haven’t seen for awhile. They’ve been following my business Facebook page or they get my email newsletter and somehow come to the conclusion that I’m swamped. I actually don’t use the word busy and I encourage others to ditch […]

My Computer Mentor Turned 94 Today

My computer mentor turned 94 today. She thinks she’s a “total geek when it comes to this computer stuff” and she’s right. She’s the most important geek in my life – my grama. Grama Marian was the first person I knew with a computer, a Commodore 64. She would tell me that computers were the way […]

How to Change Your Gender on Facebook

In case you haven’t noticed, there is a gender revolution happening in our culture. We’ve moved beyond binary when identifying our genders (male or female). Facebook responded and now has 58 different gender options for those that don’t fit the traditional system. But they didn’t tell anyone that you can change your gender on Facebook! […]

The Social Media Fixer

I spend a lot of my time in social media teaching and consulting. I’m really good at marketing myself and my skills (I should be since I teach others to do it) but there’s one service I’ve never really advertised. My office mate called me, “The Fixer.” He’s right. I fix a tremendous amount of social […]

Why Your Brand Needs To Be On Instagram

“Instagram is for teenagers.” “It isn’t designed for business.” “Instagram isn’t a money maker for us.” These are the myths I hear every day. It’s time to think outside of the box, look toward the horizon, and engage your audience where they are at. Don’t assume that traditional channels (did I just say “traditional” in a social […]

Proud to be First – Social Media Teacher

Over a year ago, I was walking out of a board meeting for a non-profit organization and talking with a fellow board member. It so happens he’s the father of a woman I went to college with so we’ve known each other a long time. He asked what I’d been up to and where I […]

How to Set a Shortcut for iOS

One of the most common short phrases that I send digitally is “No problem.” It’s often in response to someone that I’m meeting that’s running late for our appointment. As soon as I got in my car this morning, I received an email from my client telling me she was 15 minutes behind. I love […]

For further reading, check out the blogs I’ve written on the subject in the category sidebar or by clicking here. I’ve also written a book on the topic, What You Don’t Know […]

Secret to My Success

My business Kerry Rego Consulting celebrated eight years this September. I’ve been asked many times what I did to reach the level of success and respect I’ve achieved but I didn’t have an answer beyond “hard work” until just recently. Now that I’ve put my finger on one of the the most important elements, I want to […]
