Utilizing technology to create a web presence, within exercise, performance, and sport psychology, is a viable option for savvy AASP professionals. Learn how to define your niche, identify your audience, put your mission and passion into action, and realize your goals and dreams. As technology evolves, opportunities are arising for AASP members who understand the media landscape, and can recognize under-served niches through blogging.
