About Today’s Guest, Chris Brogan:
Just to give you a snapshot of the kind of person Chris Brogan is:
In 2009, Chris made the trek to St. Louis to be filmed for my then-local TV show. The Rise To The Top didn’t have a huge audience yet. We didn’t have limos and fancy stuff (still don’t). But, Chris paid his own way and came to St. Louis because he wanted to do the show. That is the kind of guy he is (a great one and one that is helpful to many). Chris has so many things going on that it is unbelievable. Here is a rundown:
- Author: New York Times Best-Selling Author of Trust Agents (with Julien Smith) and also Social Media 101.
- Writer and Blogger: His blog ChrisBrogan.com is constantly in the #5 blogs according to Advertising Age.
- Columnist: Chris writes for Entrepreneur Magazine.
- Entrepreneur: President of Human Business Works, “Entrepreneur In Residence” at Cross Tech Ventures.
- Sought-after Speaker
- …and the list goes on (trust me, there is more).
In this interview, I pick Chris’ brain about his empire, how he makes his decisions, how he gets so many things done, how he deals with failure, why he jumps on certain opportunities, and much more.
