This is an episode I have been really excited about, especially for those of you that are looking to break into the digital marketing industry. This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with the incredibly talented Ashley Spotts of Search Discovery. Ashley was a hidden gem when we discovered her. She was working for a Consumer Packaged Goods company in Atlanta but clearly had a mind for business, a passion for loyalty and hard work and a determination to find a career path she enjoyed. I've learned so much from working with Ashley and I know you will too.
This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with a former colleague who has always been a force to reckon with in the Digital Marketing Industry. Olivia Hawkins is a media planning and strategizing powerhouse and is currently an Associate Director at VaynerMedia up in the bustling New York City. She is also an instructor at one of my most favorite institutions, General Assembly and was my ticket into that place for which I'll be forever thankful. What I love about Olivia is how her drive and clarity for what she wants in her career repeatedly helps her achieve her personal goals. No matter your level, you can learn from this one…
Bobby Huntley is the Director, Co-Producer and Co-Writer of La Vie Magnifique De Charlie also known as "The Charlie Movie". I had the pleasure of sitting down with Bobby and discussing his journey into the film industry as well as how he is going about marketing for The Charlie Movie. He's a charming character who has a passion to change the Atlanta movie scene and has some great advice for all of us along the way. Enjoy!
This is the first episode of my series giving you access to our experience marketing our side hustle www.firstyearmarried.com .

This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with a colleague who has launched a successful business, both online and offline, the Akron Candle Company. Blair Scott is a developer who has learned, through his side hustle, how to become a more effective employee through the perspective he's gotten as the owner of his own business.
This week I sat down with Lee Elliott, the VP of Digital Media at VaynerMedia. If you listened to episode 8 all about Erin Linsin, Lee is the person responsible for stealing her from my team. He also is responsible for a lot of the amazing growth that VaynerMedia has seen in its paid media departments and is, himself, a wonderful and fascinating person. I think you'll love this episode.

This week I had the honor of sitting down with someone who brightens up every room she walks into. She is a powerhouse because she is not only an extremely talented marketing machine but also a deeply reflective and impressively emotionally intelligent human. We talk about her super-human ability to be positive in the face of fire-breathing dragon-like personalities. We talk about women in technology and how she found herself becoming a leading force on the topic at VaynerMedia. We also talk through having a vision for our careers in the digital marketing industry. I really think you'll love this one, she's magnetic.

This week I set out to get a unique perspective on side hustles, entrepreneurship and even some notes on marriage from the person I admire and have learned the most from. She is an extremely talented entrepreneur and digital marketer, someone who I've learned so much from and who has recently, after 10 years of research and study, converted her side hustle into her full focus: a business coaching women in their first year of marriage. She is none other than Kayla Levin, founder of FirstYearMarried.com… who also happens to be my wife.

Doug Colson was an extremely talented digital marketer. He was a great team player and always went above and beyond both in his own work and in his patience for training others. But while Doug was excited about the growth of the company, he struggled internally to feel fulfilled. His story teaches us that enabling people to thrive sometimes means they need to go somewhere else.
This is a story you do not want to miss.

Listen to an event co-hosted by General Assembly and Women in Technology of Atlanta that I helped put together. It was an honor to be a part of as well as enlightening and inspiring. Due to audio quality and other issues I am only able to share parts of the session. Also, given the sensitivity of the topics of inclusion and diversity I don't claim to endorse or condemn any views shared but wanted you to have the full audio so you could experience the event for yourselves.
Tori pulls Noah aside for a one on one to discuss how she can leverage self awareness and empathy to be more effective in telling the story around attributing value for her account based marketing campaign.
