    The Embodiment of Service - #MPKBest Twitter User of the Year

    The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.” ~ Mitch Albom

    This, in a nutshell, is what I think about Michele and how she lives her life. I respect, value, and aspire to do the exact same thing. Michele not only has an impact on the #agricultural community, she motivates others to do the same thing; make an impact. 

    In today's world, with social media tools, information can go viral, fast. In conjunction blogging has a huge impact on society, given that more and more people are "dialed in" to blogs. Michele understands this, and knows full well that we, in agriculture, need to "find our voice". Michele has dedicated herself to the ag industry and this mantra. 

    More importantly than ideals, is the ability to execute: As Johann Wolfgang von Goethe stated "A really great talent finds its happiness in execution." If that is the case, Michele is certainly happy. Actions speak louder than words, so don't just take my word for it. Just have a look at #agchat and #foodchat on #twitter. Michele founded both of these open forums on twitter and the impact has been phenomenal. #Agchat has been a hub that allows the various spokes in the #ag industry to hook together to create a powerful voice. It is also a place we can come together to share knowledge, educate, and learn from one another. The biggest impact has been on the interaction with the public at large. We need to get this going. Education is a MUST! I am ever thankful for the weekly shindig known as #agchat!

    1. Great post Nate. I wrote some of my personal why I am voting everyday on my blog as well as a general overview on what a bunch of us are behind.

      I am hoping we see Michele up on a platform as the nominee! How fantastic to have #agchat and #foodchat get that sort of visibility!

    1. Nate, thank you for your kind comments. The value of #agchat and #foodchat is the community. It's a privilege to work with great 'tweeps' and share the great story of the people in the business of raising food, feed, fuel and fiber!
