Thanks so much for adding me to this list. I'm honored! I certainly don't have the "quantity" of followers that these ladies have on Twitter, but I do have a high quality following of awesome people across the social web.

I recently interviewed Mike Alfred, CEO of http://www.brightscope.com.

They are working hard to bring greater transparency to investors. They are also building the most comprehensive, transparent, online database of financial advisors. Think "Avvo" for financial advisors.  

You can catch the interview here:  http://blog.wiredadvisor.com/brightscope/

Story
Tagline
Nothing Great Was Ever Achieved Without Enthusiasm!
Introduction

I'm a digital entrepreneur and the founder/CEO of Wired Advisor, a digital marketing company serving the financial services industry. My blog is Build Online Influence.

In 2014 I was named a Top 25 Social Media Expert by LinkedIn and aTop 10 Financial Industry Blogger by RIABiz. 

I believe that growing a successful business in today's wired world requires a strategic focus on building online influence within your niche market, cultivating an intelligent network of connections, and leveraging smart digital marketing and business tools.

For fun, I enjoy running, yoga, hiking, mountain biking, cycling, snowboarding, golf, and just about anything outdoors. I love live music, a nice red blend, and I'm also a guitar player and singer-songwriter!
