It may seem like you are teaching your grandmother how to use Snapchat. The results are often surprising, even if the process is frustrating. Bring in homemade cookies to sweeten the deal. Use real stories and data to convince your audience of the value of what you are doing.

That's it! In a nutshell, political advocacy. Or should I say, an elevator full people?

Go out and conquer those nasal dreams! First impressions are always a second chance.
