Beatriz Alemar (@balemar), or Bea as I simply call her, is someone who literally caught my attention with smart comments on Brazen Careerist.  Being someone who loves a smart mind, I reached out to her and quickly found out she was even better on Skype than her smart posts made me believe.  She’s a consultant by day in the realms of social media and helping non-profits put wins on the boards but by night I’ve hooked her into doing a new podcast with me! I’m thoroughly excited to introduce you to Bea! Enjoy.

After 2 months without missing a beat, I had a file corrupt, a backup not record appropriately and I couldn’t find anyone to record with on short notice.  That stated, I won’t leave you guys without some new content.  I’ve decided to make a clips show of some of those interviews that I really enjoyed and give you some behind the scenes on how the show actually has done.  I hope you enjoy a look back at my interviews with @gosam, @thebrandbuilder and @drbret.  Enjoy!

DeAndre Upshaw (@deandresays) is one of those people I feel really fortunate to have met in the last month.  The guy is super smart and knows how to leverage social media platforms to draw not only attention but actually build communities that benefit a business.  Taking bits of his undergraduate degree, his experience in improv and his dynamic personality he’s been able to win job after job in the social media space.  I’m definitely looking at what he’s doing to up my game and I hope you will too.  Enjoy!

Neeley Neal (@neeleyneal) is someone who was mentioned to me twice in conversations in the last year.  Given that initial experience I started to follow her and watch her from afar.  Little did I know that Neeley was actually an entrepreneur who’s building something that I couldn’t be farther from her intended user but I still think the idea is brilliant.  Neeley’s is a former NFL Cheerleader and rolled that knowledge in to becoming the founder of  Sideline Star is an online community for cheerleaders and their coaches with all kinds of resources directly from professional cheerleaders.  This interview was actually Neeley’s and my first conversation on the phone so I was getting to meet her just like you all are.  Enjoy!
