About Alicia Cowan
Having used Social media to launch her own VA business, and to grow her own business, Alicia began mentoring and training others with the tips she learnt. Eventually she became such a sought after social media trainer, she gave up her VA business and now works exclusively as a coach, mentor and guru in social media arena.
In the podcast I talk about one of my new favourite tools, Pocket. Pocket was created to help people save interesting articles, videos and more from the web for later enjoyment. Once saved to Pocket, the list of content is visible on any device—phone, tablet or computer. It can be viewed while waiting in line, on the couch, during commutes or travel—even offline. You can find out more about Pocket here.
