On Weds, March 3 Lani Anglin Rosales with an assist from Benn Rosales gave a talk at Texas Coworking as part of the massive RISE invasion of Austin, Texas. If you haven’t heard Lani talk, it’s a real treat to hear her discourse on how to build a social network and how to stay afloat in these sometimes treacherous, but normally navigable, waters. Her audience was rapt at attention throughout her talk, she didn’t use a projector or whiteboard. Just Lani and some folks, engaged in a session that was full of content every minute.
What amazed me the most is how prodigious a writer Lani is on a daily basis. An English grad, she cranks out a mind boggling number of articles, tweets, and emails every day without fail. And she’s very, very personable and doesn’t hesitate to get on the phone with her community members and followers and meet with them for coffee. She’s inspiring other bloggers and social networkers to get off their butts a little bit and pay attention to words on the page and to the impact these have on the community of people following their blogs and twitter feeds.
Lani and Benn’s major project is AgentGenius. Google it. This real estate blog has weathered controversy and triumphed to become a major force in the home seller industry segment. Focused, Informative. Over 80 article writers contribute to it including the prodigious Lani and her hubby Benn. Follow Lani on Twitter and don’t miss her frequent Austin, Texas tweetups.
Lani, born and raised in Austin, Texas, is the best ambassador for the values and ethos that make up the Austin way that I’ve ever experienced.
