Do you have any advice for a college freshman entrepreneur hoping to pursue her business post graduation? What steps should I take?
First of all, good on you for starting a business as a college freshman - that is impressive! Is this a new business that you are starting or a business that you are carrying forward from high school? Either way, I would think upfront about how you want to dedicate your time to college per se vs. your business in this next few years. Your business can take over your time just as easily as the experience of growing and finding yourself as an adult in college, and setting expectations with yourself of where you'd like your business to be by the time you graduate can help you keep focused on integrating school and business through the entire experience. Not to mention it can keep you sane and centered, so that you celebrate your own success vs. constantly feel like you're not doing enough in either. Setting goals for yourself upfront can also help you to identify an opportunity when it comes your way, especially as college will put you in a unique position to expand your business. Leaders from across industries frequently come to speak at colleges and are very open to helping a young student, so that can create immense aperture for you and help your business to move forward. Use it to your advantage!

What are some big developments/changes in digital media? I'm learning what's new & exciting in this space for a tech conf I'm planning!
Hi Nada - A few key trends that I'm really excited about: - Wearables: whether its Google Glass, Jawbone Up or the new bracelet that Disney Theme Parks recently launched, we are seeing practical applications of wearable technology. Both big media companies and entrepreneurs will be attempting to capitalize on this by creating compelling consumer-facing apps. - Computers in cars and appliances - this may seem far away, but there has been huge progress made here and we are starting to see practical applications. - Migration of desktop users to mobile and creating models/platforms to help media companies monetize that traffic. - Data - the amount of data that we have about consumers, as well as their activities, allows media companies to enable more effective targeting as well as create experiences that are more relevant. There are many trends we are looking at closely...these are just a few of the more interesting ones that create opportunities for media companies. Have fun at the conference!

I have a book blog with loyal followers but I'd love to add some other content. How do you stay true to yourself while keeping an audience?
Interesting question. There are a couple of ways you can go about this. One way is to go ahead and start introducing the content right away. The other way would be to create another channel where you talk about different content. (Maybe that's another blog, or a newsletter...) No matter which way you go, I would survey your readers first! Maybe they ARE interested in other content! It's worth asking. I think you can get creative and ease into the new content in a way that doesn't seem "jarring" (if that makes sense). Maybe you slowly start introducing content into your Twitter/Instagram feed and on your FB page to gauge interest... and then move into more traditional content posting on your blog.

I've had the exact same feelings for the last couple of weeks. I spent nine years at my alma mater, and constantly worry that the contributions and friendships that I made there will merely fade. The statuses, pictures, and tweets make my heart twinge just a little. "To thee our hearts belong" is the closing line of our alma mater, and as the current class begins their collegiate journey, I smile and wish happiness for them. Part of me wants to go back and get yet another degree under my belt, but I know I have to let go at some point-- this is why homecoming was invented!

If at all possible, avoid the check scenario altogether. PayPal invoicing lets customers pay with a debit/credit card; including electronic payment options as well as terms of payment are a critical part of the process. Use DocuSign for contract confirmation - it's always easier to prove what's what when you've got a third party repository for your legal agreements.

What would you suggest someone do if they were interested in a Product role but didn't think they had the background?
Don't sell yourself short. Depending on the organization, category experience or something else in your background might make you a great fit. When I hire product managers, I'm looking for problem solving skills, adaptability, raw smarts, customer-focus and the ability to blend art & science into "aha!". When I started in product, there really wasn't such a thing in consumer-ish companies in New York, so I've always been open to alternative backgrounds (Confession: I worked in fashion before I geeked out.) Great illustration: I hired a project coordinator at Seamless who had zero interactive experience, but had years of maitre d' experience which translates beautifully to project management (she's terrific at careful planning, pivoting quickly, risk management and motivating a team around her.) She's not a product manager (yet?), but is learning the fundamentals quickly. Another idea: launch an app or something else you think the world needs... you'll get hands-on experience in all facets of product development (strategy, design, building, marketing, etc.). Good luck! lk

Yep, definitely a helpful article with lots of truth in it. I've had a similar case like "The Inconsiderate" one. Almost every morning on my way to school I have to listen to people talking on the phone(srsly, tell me your magic spell for this kind of energy so early in the morning) and sometimes it irritates me so bad I want to flee from the subway. That's when I "feel compelled to speak up" and surprisingly, people listen to me.

In your interview in BtPS, you talk about balancing family with your career. What has been the most consistently useful thing to do that?
Telling myself that sometimes done is better than perfect! I've had to learn to work faster and a bit messier at home and it has benefitted me at work as well. In a work setting, especially at the pace I need to operate at times, sometimes it's just better to fire off those emails without over-thinking and belaboring each and every word. That's been a difficult one for me as I like to write, review, rewrite, review, etc. I've no time for that anymore!

What can I do to transition from a social media/community manager role, to attract a position that is more business oriented?
Hi Tierra, Get as aligned to your company's key business priorities as you can. Your role is to enable the company's business success through the use of social media/community platforms. That means that you should be well versed in your business. Identify what moves you, learn more about it, ask for a stretch assignment in that space, engage your HR partners in dialogue about how to make such a transition, and follow the good advice! Best, Daisy
