When asked why she doesn’t have a business fan page on Facebook, Genia replied, “I am my brand. I prefer connecting with people on a very personal level so I deleted my business page. I’m in my own skin when I stay away from business talk when I socialize. That’s just the way I do it.” So, connect with Genia on Facebook (become a friend or a subscriber/follower) and join the conversation.
