Barbara Segal Chats It Up

Barbara Segal And Associates journey to now, is based on the fact that Barbara is an Aquarian.  Zodiac Facts are that Aquarians are always ten miles ahead of everyone else in their thinking. In 2010, everyone including Chris, Mat, Tom, Dick, and Sally is a Social Media Expert and a Blogger. Quite frankly, the whole change has turned Barbara Segal off.  That's right, off.  Twitter is filled with Social Media Speakers, Coaches, Consultants, and Experts which is clearly a kind of smart way to say, I am out of a job.

When Barbara traveled to Chicago to work with her former Design Client, on a new Multi Million Dollar High Rise Apartment. The project set the passion, in motion of Interior Design, Barbara's Showroom knowledge, Vendor Relations, and the reputation Barbara has.  While attending NeoCon, Barbara found it to be what future Trade Shows will be. A fun interactive Social Media Show, experience. The registration of the Show, allowed you to sign in with Twitter and tweet a list of Manufacturers and their products in your show planner. There was an incredible Manufacturer tweet up  at Kohler. And vloggs were also cutting edge for Manufacturers on the NeoCon page.

Between the Inspiration of NeoCon and meeting with so many Manufacturer, Vendor and Client relations. Barbara had an Epiphany when on her regular favorite Twitter Chat: #BlogChat and than again when she was on #BrandChat. In June, Barbara Segal started #IntDesignerChat a weekly chat about Interior Design. Open to any one in the Interior Design, Interior Architect and Furniture Industry. As usual Barbara had nay Sayers against her. However it was an AH HA moment for Barbara and she persevered on. As the successful owner of Barbara Segal & Associates and Noir Blanc Interiors, she has learned to follow her heart.  The Chat has grown and received Press in Furniture Today. Life is good.
