Anyone can launch a Facebook fan page, but not everyone can do it the way Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour plans to do it Saturday at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.
Armour boasts a list of firsts, including:
- First African-American female combat pilot (Super Cobra attack helicopters for two tours of duty in Iraq);
- First African-American female motorcycle cop for the Nashville Police Department; and
- One of the first women to play professional football.
She is now in the less-adrenaline-inducing field of motivational speaking, and she plans to launch her Facebook fan page with a one-hour event, which is set to include:
- Live streaming video of Armour interacting with her fans;
- Giveaways of her book, Zero to Breakthrough: The Seven-Step, Battle-Tested Method for Accomplishing Goals That Matter, as well as coaching sessions and gift certificates;
- A live question-and-answer session on the topic of overcoming obstacles;
- Virtual drinks served in “The Cleared Hot Ready Room”; and
- “Other contests and surprises.”
It seems like a lot to pack into 60 minutes, but who are we to argue with a fighter pilot, motorcycle cop, and football player?
Armour said she will hold weekly live events on her Facebook page, adding:
I’ve always been known for playing hard in all that I do, and I really wanted to do something really different and meaningful when launching my new Facebook fan page. I’ve stood on some great shoulders to get where I am today, and I’m using this launch to give back and thank my supporters.
Times are tough, and people need to be inspired to turn that fear into fuel. Whether it’s trying to climb the corporate ladder, find a job, make more money, develop a passion into a livelihood, or whatever else, I hope I can use Facebook as another tool to help people reach their goals.
Facebook users: Are you motivated?
