Please Enter Your Pin, Followed By the Hashtag

One thing that we do here at The Rocket Group is present. We give trainings, we speak at meetings, and we teach at conferences. We educate, inform and entertain our audiences when we have the microphone, but sometimes, our audiences educate, inform, or entertain us, instead.

When I spoke at the Jefferson City West Rotary Club, I was introduction by Stephanie Johnson,  the President of the Rotary Club. Jill shared a story about calling a business and being asked for her pin number.

“It was an automated voice,” Stephanie said. “Normally you hear, ‘Please enter your pin or account number followed by the pound sign,’ but this little-automated voice said to me, ‘Please enter your pin followed by the hashtag.’ We are living in a Gus Wagner world,’” she said. “We have evolved.”

I was so flattered by Stephanie’s words, “We are living in Gus Wagner world. We have evolved.”

It just goes to show that social media doesn’t stop on Twitter or Facebook or YouTube. Social media has infiltrated our culture, and businesses, organizations, and nonprofits that want to be relevant in a social media world will embrace social media culture if they haven’t done so yet.

Listen to what else Stephanie has to say about The Rocket Group in this video clip, and in the meantime, if you’d like to have me speak to your group, business or convention, just hit the speaking and training link above!
