If you're a do-it-yourselfer, you'll get under the counter and fix it. If not, you'll call a a plumber.

Running a coaching business is hard enough, and to run a successful business these days, most coaches now have a social media presence whether it's Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ or something else.
