Have you ever spent hours writing a white paper that no one seems to read or cite to no matter how much you share it? Today, content marketing is 9/10ths of effective advocacy. No longer can you expect donors to give out of the goodness of their hearts. The harsh reality is that either you have an engaged audience, or you don't.

Fortunately, content marketing is something you can learn and excel at.

In a departure from the purely policy focus that characterizes most of my interviews, today's episode is tactical. Katja Schroeder, Managing Partner at Bloom PR and Adjunct Professor of International Marketing and Social Media Marketing at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, is here to help you get unstuck.

Your hard work deserves more attention. Here's your toolkit for going from zero to 60. See you inside.

If you have ever tried to start a new career, a new business, or just move up in your current organization, you know that having the right mentor is CRITICAL.

It takes SO much courage to reach out to a potential mentor. And then, once you do, sometimes they either don't respond or their career trajectory is so wildly different from your own, that it's hard to imagine following the same path.

So you get stuck and go about your day-to-day for months, or even years, never finding a mentor because you came away discouraged from that initial experience.

Enter Natalie Cofield. Natalie is the embodiment of Gandhi's famous advice to "be the change you want to see in the world." Like many of us, Natalie struggled early in her career trying to find the right mentor. Although she was ultimately successful, it didn't come without an incredible amount of time and effort.

But once she achieved success, she never forgot how hard it was when she was just starting out. After a string of entrepreneurial successes, Natalie created Walker's Legacy, an organization that provides mentoring to new businesses, particularly women-owned businesses, in a way that removes barriers and empowers both mentors and mentees.

Whether you are just starting out, established in your careers, or looking to change careers, this one's for YOU, Insiders. Listen up!

Last year, the FCC passed rules -- net neutrality rules -- that prohibit wireless carriers and ISPs from favoring some content over others. Still, some wireless carriers and ISPs are entering into exclusive deals with content providers, like Netflix and YouTube, to offer their content to their subscribers without it counting against subscribers' data caps.

Listen to my interview with John Bergmayer at Public Knowledge to get his unique perspective on whether these services are illegal and how they may stifle the rise of emerging content platforms such as podcasts and other businesses that use streaming media in their marketing.

When it comes to your personal data, would it be better for you to live in Europe or the United States? In this episode, international media and telecommunications law and policy expert Ad van Loon​  joins me to discuss how European authorities protect European citizens' data, how it conflicts with data protection laws in the U.S., and what's at stake for individuals and transatlantic trade if the two world powers don't reach a resolution.

That "all these channels but nothing's on" feeling is all too familiar.

You pay approximately $231 per year to lease your set-top box from your cable company. By some estimates, cable companies earn as much as $20 billion in net profits from this arrangement.

In January, the FCC released proposed rules intended to open up the set-top box marketplace. If these rules pass, you'll have more set-top boxes to choose from, and actually own.

Since these set-top boxes would compete, at least in part, on the content that comes with them, an unintended benefit of the rules may mean you'll have access to even more content that is written, produced and performed by minorities and women.

In this episode, Brian Woolfolk and I discuss what the new set-top box rules could mean for consumers, set top box manufacturers like Apple TV, and diversity.

See you inside.

Despite a growing body of research showing people can and do excel later in life, we live in a society that has a pecking order that is largely based on the decisions we made decades ago.

Without the right mindset and help from those who perceive your worth, it is easy to accept the labels others assign to you.

I can think of few other groups that are more stigmatized in our society than those who are or have been incarcerated.

When ex-convicts enter the workforce, employers simply do not care that the crime you committed happened 10 or 20 years ago or why you made the choices you made. They don't care how repentent and remorseful you are. To add insult to injury, while you were in prison, you've never even seen the internet, much less learned any skills that are in high demand.

Meet Beverly Parenti. In 2010, along with her husband, Chris Redlitz, serial Silicon Valley entrepreneur Beverly Parenti founded The Last Mile--a nonprofit specifically designed to help inmates learn the skills they need to enter the workforce as junior software engineers once they are released.

Listen as Beverly and I discuss The Last Mile and how she went from having very little empathy for inmates at all, to someone who is one of the leading advocates for those of us from whom society expects very little.

It's time to be inspired, Insiders!

Yondi Morris-Andrews is the MODEL of persistence, confidence and vision. After a typically horrifying experience working on a contract basis at a large law firm, Yondi decided enough was enough.

Yondi always wanted to start her own law firm, but wasn't quite sure how. Enter Twitter. It was on Twitter where Yondi met 2 other lawyers, in the exact same situation, who also weren't satisfied with what they were doing. It was through the relationships that Yondi established on Twitter, that KMR Law Group was born.

In today's episode, you will learn how to break through that initial fear of starting your own business. You will also hear a step-by-step guide to cover all your legal bases as you decide to take that leap into becoming an entrepreneur.

My guest today is Lateef Mtima--Professor of Law at Howard University School of Law and Director of its Intellectual Property Program.

One issue we don't hear enough about is the role of intellectual property in preserving our rights embedded in the U.S. Constitution. The most obvious example is the Constitutional right to freedom of expression. But, in the digital age, the Equal Protection clause comes into play.

The power of our digital creations is especially apparent when video footage captured on smartphones can be presented as evidence in cases in which complainants allege a public official has violated their rights.

But intellectual property laws and policies determine how the same footage can be hosted online, on sites like YouTube that facilitate its dissemination to the public at as low a cost, and with as few gatekeepers, as possible. Without these creative works being hosted someplace with low barriers--cost and otherwise--it's very likely that many more instances of Equal Protection and civil rights violations would go completely unnoticed--as they did for all of human history prior to the Internet.

My guest today is Lita Rosario, one of America's foremost entertainment lawyers. She has represented the likes of Missy Elliott, Crystal Waters and Jill Scott's producer, Ronald Frost, among many many other multi-platinum artists and producers. She is currently representing Soul Sonic Force in a lawsuit against Tommy Boy Records to acquire the rights to their hit song 'Planet Rock', which they recorded in the late '70s with Afrika Bambaataa.

I searched far and wide for a bird's eye view of how music royalties work, particularly in this age of streaming. I couldn't find one, so Lita and I put one together for you here. After listening to this, you'll know more than most about how music royalties are paid out to artists in this new age of streaming PLUS your latest tech law and policy news.

Let's go!

Is high speed internet service too expensive? A recent Pew study suggests many consumers think it is. Should cities step in to provide more affordable broadband? If so, how much say should the FCC have to tell states and municipalities what they can and cannot do when it comes to municipal broadband?

Listen to Berin Szoka and I discuss the history of how the FCC regulates the Internet, what he thinks you should do about it, and the policy battle playing out in the courts and on the Hill.
