THIS! This, right here, is a big "get" for me. The first podcast that I ever got into was Mitch Joel's Six Pixels of Separation.

Listen here: https://www.sixpixels.com/category/podcast/

From my early days in digital marketing, I looked to Mitch Joel, along with Seth Godin and Mark Schaefer as my primary sources of inspiration and insight. In this conversation, Mitch and I discuss the state of digital marketing and social media (with slightly differing perspectives), explore the pivot from agency life to solopreneuer/speaker, and dig into how Mitch produces such an amazing podcast, every week, without ever missing a week...since 2006!

This episode is definitely...Shareable.

Grant Crowell, The Social Wordsmith

Grantus Crowellius Maximus, Great Grantasmo, Social Word Chef, Tipper of Sacred Cows, Twisted Ice-Crusher, Shit Maker-Upper, and Best Morning Coffee Maker

Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawai‘i, with a long adult-ing in the Chicago burbs, Grant now lives in Durham, North Carolina with his “spousish” partner, Karen.

Grant currently works as a full-time contractor and virtual event video coordinator for Dell Technologies. A man wearing many hats, he was previously a three-time social media manager on both the agency and brand side, a past YouTube channel manager for Fortune 100 enterprises, a nationwide conference speaker on video marketing, a former professional editorial cartoonist and talk radio host, a comedy club staffer, and a dabbler in documentary film production. He is a proud fighter of free speech for everyone and was represented by the ACLU during his college years.

When he’s not making up silly words, Grant is a guest speaker on being confident on camera, and on the unique relationship between social media and ADHD. (Fun note: while writing this book, he worked part-time as a Social media manager and video producer for a local jewelry business, where he was continuously surrounded by highly distractible, shiny objects—and jewelry, too.)

Grant also volunteers with Karen as foster parents for a cat and kitten adoption and rescue organization. For fun, he enjoys running in thousand-acre forest preserves, looking for the best craft beer deals across state lines, listening to offbeat podcasts, enjoying quirky documentaries, open mic nights, and getting into spirited dialog with humor.

His first solo book, GRANTASMS!, is the culmination of many years of word creations from his big ideas, small wonders, and unfinished business. He is an enthusiastic student of creative psychology and social health, and he explores twisted ways of treating people online with empathy daily. He succeeds some of the time, laughs at the others, gets pissy about a few, and tries to learn from them all.

SHOW NOTES

Teacher. Mentor. Strategist. Innovator. Author. All are terms you could use to identify Adam Pierno.

The highly caffeinated Pierno has refined a simple methodology to build precise strategies for numerous client campaigns. Prior to his current role as AVP of Marketing Strategy at Arizona State University's Enterprise Marketing Hub, Pierno leveraged his knowledge of consumer behavior to produce informed and effective campaigns for such national brands as Delta Air Lines, Dial Corporation, Domino’s Pizza, Dunkin' Brands and Mercedes-Benz.

His first book, “Under Think It” delves into the foundational aspects of marketing strategy. He was inspired to pen this insightful guidebook to fill a void in strategy training curriculum. That book is used to teach strategy at universities, global agencies and Fortune 100 companies. His second book, "Specific" demonstrates a model that today's brands can use to grow in an absence of viable mass media.

SHOW NOTES

Lauren Teague has never written a business book, never given a keynote speech to thousands, and has never shot even par on the golf course (but she was one-under through 9 holes, once).

She is an emoji queen (but likes Bitmoji better). She tweets, snaps, posts and "goes live” on the regular, mostly so she can help others do the same. She speaks Millennial, and can translate it too.

When she's not on stage, or presenting workshops, or helping clients create social media strategies, she is literally a mini-van driving soccer mom of three kids ages five, three and one. Lauren lives just outside the Portland, Oregon suburbs, because her husband hates traffic, and she works from home for Jay Baer and Convince & Convert because she hates long commutes (unless they are by airplane).

Lauren (wo)manned @PGATOUR social media for seven seasons, including the fateful instances of everything that happened to Tiger Woods between 2008 and 2014; Dustin Johnson's #WhatBunker fiasco at the 2010 PGA Championship, and the American team's domination of the President's Cup (2009, 2011, 2013). She once got an earful from Phil Mickelson regarding his true feelings about social media, yet he too finally gave in and joined Twitter this past year.

Lauren produced an outdoor festival for hundreds of people during the 2017 National Solar Eclipse while 35 weeks pregnant, and then missed most of the actual eclipse because her son was scared of the dark. Lauren Teague would really really like to help you with content, marketing and social media strategy, but honestly she'd rather go golfing.

SHOW NOTES

Laura Gassner Otting helps people get “unstuck” — and achieve extraordinary results.

Through Limitless Possibility, Laura collaborates with change agents, entrepreneurs, investors, leaders, and donors to push past the doubt and indecision that consign great ideas to limbo. She delivers strategic thinking, well-honed wisdom, and catalytic perspective informed by decades of navigating change across the start-up, nonprofit, political, and philanthropic landscapes.

Laura’s 25-year resume is defined by her entrepreneurial edge. She served as a Presidential Appointee in Bill Clinton’s White House, helping shape AmeriCorps; left a leadership role at respected nonprofit search firm, Isaacson, Miller, to expand the startup ExecSearches.com; and founded and ran the Nonprofit Professionals Advisory Group, which partnered with the full gamut of mission driven nonprofit executives, from start-up dreamers to scaling social entrepreneurs to global philanthropists. She is the author of Mission-Driven, a book for those moving from profit to purpose, and Limitless: How to Ignore Everybody, Carve Your Own Path, and Live Your Best Life

Through her own commitment to give back, Laura has helped build a local Montessori school, co-founded a women’s philanthropic initiative, advised a start-up national women’s PAC, grew a citizen-leadership development program, and completed three charity-inspired marathons—projects emblematic of her passions and values. She’s turned on by the audacity of The Big Idea and that larger-than-life goal you just can’t seem to shake. She’s an instigator, a motivator, and a provocateur, and she’s never met a revolution she didn’t like.

In this episode, we discuss...

  • What does it mean to help people discover their consonance?
  • Being mission driven vs being pessimistic about paying the bills
  • What if success doesn’t equal happiness? Is that a problem with how we define success?
  • Let's explore the idea that you should “Follow Your Passion”
  • How do we change the culture so that being proud of yourself is ok?
  • Negative impact of technology on connection
