Had a blast as a guest on the +Buffer podcast sharing my journey and how I've found success through failure and in the chaos that is social media.
Check out this episode and the others as this is a podcast that I've added to my must listen playlist on my iPhone.
The path to becoming a thought leader on social media is one that is not clearly defined. Influencers come from a variety of backgrounds and specialties.

On this episode +Daniel Newman and I breakdown the iPhone 7 launch, their love for Apple products while explaining how much they love the Samsung S7's they have. Also discussed on this episode is how how Samsung has handled the "exploding Note 7" and what does it mean that Apple now has a twitter account.

In 2016, any person that is remotely good at “Googling” and knows how to navigate YouTube can figure out how to do just about anything. This is also why in today’s world, especially the social media industry, everyone thinks they’re a thought leader but…
Understanding who you are, what you have to offer, and how that fits into your vision of success is essential for all business professionals but vital for entrepreneurs.

Employment
  • Broadsuite
    Chief Digital Officer & Partner, 2014 - 2016
    At Broadsuite I will be focusing on initiatives that connect paid, owned and earned digital channels through maximizing community involvement and content utilizing social and technology. What exactly does that mean? I’ll be teaching and leading change helping B2B’s, small businesses and technology companies connect, communicate and become active members of their communities both internal with employee advocacy and personal branding and externally utilizing community events such as weekly Google+ hangouts, Twitter Chats and video podcasts. I’ll be helping brands orchestrate content marketing tactics that situate their brands at the moments that matter to their audiences by focusing on creating content and social engagement that provides value while helping customers solve problems where often times earned and owned will trump paid. I’m excited to help brands embrace this change and I know change is scary and slow for many I believe by joining Broadsuite I will have the team and tools necessary to make this happen.
