I ONCE SHARED A STAGE WITH BRIAN SOLIS
... eavesdropping on a conversation about social media between a man and woman standing behind me. I turned around and introduced myself, and Mike Whitmore and I spent the entire flight chatting social, business, travel, life, and family. A few months later he invited me to be a part of Social Media 301, a conference geared toward advanced online marketers, with a line-up of industry leading speakers. Only this time, instead of speaking about the nuts and bolts of social, he wanted me to -- quite simply -- tell my story. It was the most challenging speaking engagement I've done to date, and the most rewarding.
I cringe when people call me a "social media expert." My preferred title is "strategist." Period.
