“I love Twitter. I use @NancysBarBQ to post restaurant-related news and to engage in the community. I retweet [local accounts]—it gets our name out there while showing support. I'm a political junkie, too, and I use the same account to follow a crazy range of news and political commentary. I am such a liberal firebrand, I do my best to keep a wall between my personal political leanings and what @NancysBarBQ is about as a brand. Just lately I'm thinking that I need a personal Twitter account so I can take the muzzle off when I want.”  —Nancy Krohngold, owner, Nancy’s Bar-B-Q

These have colors and representation of women who get it done!” Susie Bowie, executive director, Manatee Community Foundation

“I recommend the Arts & Cultural Alliance’s Sarasota Culture Collective. If you’re under 40, you can get discounted tickets to seven arts organizations, their cocktail events and behind-the-scenes experiences. It lets you connect with other young professionals who have a common interest in the arts. My wife and I have made some great friends.”
