The Biggest thing I love about social media is that you can record real-life instances real-time and share with the world, or at least share with your friends & colleagues you are connected with.

I had the good fortune yesterday of being able to see history unfold in front of my eyes while watching the race horse Zenyatta being rode my the great jockey Mike Smith at Del Mar Racetrack. For those of you who don’t know, another passion of mine (among many) is horse racing. Even as a little kid going to the track with my father and uncles once in a while was a huge treat. Now, this day would be a fun filled family outing that will talked about for years to come. The reason? This female horse has won 18 races in a row! She remains unbeaten and I had the privilege of being able to experience first hand the excitement and energy of a full house at Del Mar cheering this horse on.

So here are the Top 3 Lessons Learned from Zenyatta’s 18th Win
1. Social media and social networking is much more popular among women than men (this is a fact) and if we analyze this one might see women as being more sociable, creative, and more “giving” than men.
2. Energy is contagious, and I sense that although the Trainers and others were a bit nervous for the 18th win, at the end of the day it was the heart of Zenyatta coming through at the end from all the cheering and excitement of the venue. This tells us to always lead with our hearts in ALL we do and I can attest that being in business, social media, and high tech management over the years following my heart has been crucial.
3. Legacy is greater than currency as Gary Vee says, and thanks to social media, we now have ways to share with future generations our passions and sharing a piece of history like Zenyatta winning the big race at del mar will live on!
