I’m a true believer that positive energy creates positive thoughts, positive thoughts lead to positive ideas, positive ideas produce positive actions and positive actions garner positive results.

That’s the operating principal behind Blue Gypsy Bluesfest and my efforts put for this charity event taking place on September 25th at Hunt Club Farm in Virginia Beach to benefit Habitat for Humanity and the Nachel’ Blues Network. I’ve been making calls, sending email and talking about this event to anyone and everyone who would listen and now we have the involvement of many amazing people, businesses and organizations.

And people are talking about it! A friend emailed me the other day and said they heard me mentioned in an interview on the radio last week with Bobby “BlackHat” Walters, one of the musicians performing at the festival was talking about it on the radio!

Blue Gypsy Bluesfest is actually starting to get mentioned on the TV on Fox 43 and on the Radio.

Jim Hicks, Partner and Manager of The Roofing Company and the Remodeling Company is talking about it on his show Hampton Roads Home Pros. This is just one more great story about positive energy mixed with a little social media.

Jim and I had a gazillion friends in common on facebook so when I saw a friend requested from him I said nice to meet you, looks like we have some great friends in common. I’d never have bumped into Jim in the grocery store yet he cracked me up when ever I read his posts on fb and I could tell he had a great mix of humor and integrity in what he does and who he is. When the opportunity to meet him in person came up I made sure to take advantage of it and I wasn’t disappointed.

There are so many great people I meet every day through social media and while you can’t meet everyone on person, when you meet a person that exudes positive energy it’s a good idea to try to get to know them in real time as well as in the Cyber world.

So far, the Cyber world has been instrumental in connecting me with so many of the great people who are involved with this event. I’m thankful for all the friends, networking buddies, and social media folks who are helping out with making this event a reality! Check them out!
