Dee Nash and Carol Michel both felt overwhelmed and exhausted, seemingly stuck on a never-ending merry-go-round, rotating through various social media platforms, constantly adding new content and struggling to keep up with the content of others. So, they each took a social media break, also known as a digital detox. For 45 days, they stopped checking social media and began a journey to claim back their time, energy, and lives from social media. In this webinar, they will share what they learned from the digital detox, strategies for a more deliberate and straightforward approach to managing you social media presence, and alternatives to social media for promoting your brand and business.

I was born and raised in Oklahoma, where we “make” gardens — we don’t plant them. It all started with a vegetable garden plan that I found in Kitchen Gardener magazine over 30 years ago (The bunnies ate my first attempt, but I kept trying.)
Or maybe it started when I earned my bachelor’s degree in Journalism–Professional Writing from the University of Oklahoma with an emphasis in Botany. I’m probably best known as the creator and writer of my blog, Red Dirt Ramblings, where I tell the ongoing story of making my garden on the 7.5 acres surrounding my home.
I also take my readers along as I travel around the world and bring them into the kitchen with me for my gluten-free culinary creations. I’m a new beekeeper, so I share my adventures in beekeeping along with my experiences raising and releasing Monarch butterflies.
With a helping hand from my husband, Bill, who enjoys hardscape building more than gardening, I keep expanding my garden — and writing about it. In addition to my blog, I also write for green-industry businesses that need website content, product descriptions, newsletter articles, and more. I also love hitting the road as a garden speaker, sharing stories, techniques, and laughs with regional and national audiences. Learn more
