071: Why EVERY Brand & Entrepreneur Should Be On Twitter

Twitter is a social network that for many is confusing and overwhelming and Twitter hasn't exactly done a great job at marketing itself or helping people truly understand its platform. I mean they spent years fighting against Facebook only to come out and say they don't think they compete with Facebook (I agree) and they are really a real-time social news platform. But the thing about Twitter is, It changed my life both personal and professional and I believe every brand can benefit by...

066: How Great Content Creators Make It Look Easy!

I believe every person no matter your job or industry must embrace the fact that they are the producer of their own reality tv series about their life. Now I don’t mean the over produced and fake versions of reality tv rather the real, raw and unfilter access types that make you feel like you could be on that show or that one of those reality tv stars reminds you of a friend of yours. Our first impression in 2018 and beyond happens online and having a website or being on social media...

I'm on the board of 5 startups as a strategic advisor which I love doing but as a speaker most of the events I attend and brands I work with are industry, enterprise or larger association. This past week one of the startups I advice, Fledge Connect, placed in the top 50 for the Startup Grind competition allowing them to go to the global event in Redwood Ca to pitch VC's, have a booth and participate in the event.

062: The Secret To Connecting Your Business with Digital Natives Online

When most hear about selling online they either think about the overused term “social selling” or they think about the infomercial style selling where brands push webinars, online courses and free downloads in consumers faces to get them on their email list so they can hammer them with email upsells and limited space available marketing crap.

The idea of what an entrepreneur is the value of entrepreneurship has drastically transformed over the last many years. No matter which way you turn you are flooded with online courses teaching you how to get rich quick and the pontification of entrepreneurs that upon reaching great success want to highlight their rags to riches “memories.” But few talk about their failures while they are failing, their struggles as they are struggling or the crazy rollercoaster ride that is...
