446 – My Biggest Takeaways From SMMW16

sn446

In this episode, I allow myself to do use the “live to drive” format to share my thoughts following my experience at Social Media Marketing World 2016.

Update: I totally neglected to share two major takeaways from this event. Much like the others, these takeaways are about taking relationships to the next level. I had the opportunity to walk with Tyler Anderson and Chris Brogan from the speaker party to the opening night networking party held on Midway Aircraft Carrier.

During this 20+ minute walk, we had the type of conversation that takes relationships to a whole new level. I'm deeply honored to have gone much deeper in my friendship with both Tyler and Chris. Guys, I'm so sorry that I neglected to mention just how much of a valuable takeaway our time was together in this episode. I assure you that, looking back, it was at the top of the list.
