Today’s guest specializes in helping companies optimize their online presence.
His journey to becoming a digital marketing expert was circuitous and includes being a couple’s therapist and senior director of a nonprofit that house and sheltered homeless women. His own experience with homelessness as a young child in Columbia makes his expertise in social media marketing, podcasting, e-mail automation, and website optimization even more remarkable.
He has been featured, quoted, and written about in publications such as Chicago Tribune, Forbes, JP Morgan, Entrepreneur Magazine, Inc. Magazine, Huffington Post, and many others.
He has worked with Inc. 500 companies, New York Times bestselling authors, top franchises across America, yoga studios, health clubs, and digital agencies. He helps his clients capture more leads, get more sales, and be the top in their industry.

In this episode we discuss:
his thoughts on leadership: “I think everyone’s a leader. Leadership is just whenever we have the ability to influence others. Sometimes the leader is the quietest person in the room, inspiring others to do their best work. Other times, leadership is the loudest person in the room, showing others where to go.”
how sports taught him to be a leader for himself and others and how wrestling gave him the drive and inspiration to shift his idea of what winning and losing looks like, and how he never lost another match after that.
his thoughts on how to show up as a leader when you feel like others are not recognizing you or your abilities.
how he helps people position themselves as a true authority in their field.
his emphasis on networking and his belief that everyone is reachable, and how he uses his beliefs to help him create quality connections with some of the biggest names in many industries.
the value he places on the people who give him their trust, time, and money, and how he connects with them.
