A few weeks ago when I initially recorded this episode, Sherrie Rohde had just started a new job as Magento's Community Manager. This week, she just completed her move for that same position. It's truly an honor to help celebrate her success by sharing it with the Why I Social community. 

Sherrie first caught my attention through her amazing work with My Community Manager and #CMGRHangout (every Friday on Twitter and Google Hangouts). 

Get to know Sherrie as we discuss Myers-Briggs, My Community Manager and tabletop gaming!

It's fair to say if you're reading this text right now, it's more than likely you've worked with a product from a company that Guy Kawasaki has worked for or with. With BA from Stanford and an MBA from UCLA, Guy has been a leader in the social media world for a long-time.

Whether you've read one of his books or heard him speak at one of his many keynotes, it's hard to think of a social media world that doesn't include him. He's also a true joy to speak with and a man willing to give up an hour of his time to talk to Why I Social - for which I am naturally grateful.

Get to know Guy as we discuss working at Apple, keynote speaking and the crazy stuff kids say.

What do mechanical engineering degrees and yo-yos have in common? Chris Mikulin! He's the owner of CLWY, a high end yo-yo company, based in Canada. He's also fresh off an appearance on the Social Pros Podcast. 

From Snapchat to Twitter, Chris has been successful in creating great digital strategy and building a successful business based on the power of community. He's also one of the nicest people you'll probably ever meet. One conversation with him and I promise you that you will agree. 

Get to know Chris as we discuss our yo-yos, meeting Bryan Kramer and performing at Social Media Marketing World.

When I first met Vincenzo Landino on Twitter, I felt like there was something to him. I couldn't put my finger on it.
It wasn't long after that I invited him to help me out here or there on a little side project of mine called Why I Social.

Since first meeting Vincenzo, he's done some very cool things. He's become the host of #MCEOTalk and in many rights, a bit of a Meerkat celebrity. One thing is for sure - his personality and willingness to help others will stands out. 

Get to know Vincenzo as we discuss our Why U Social project, getting involved with MillennialCEO and epic karaoke.

Britt Michaelian launched the Mass Amplify Podcast around the same time that Why I Social went live. Both podcasts hit the new and notable at the same time. Both myself and Britt conversed quite a bit about podcasting and supported one another's podcast.

Basically, this podcast collaboration is long-overdue.

Last Thursday, Britt released an episode of the Mass Amplify Podcast that featured me. Today, that conversation continues and instead focuses on the founder of Mass Amplify herself.

Get to know Britt as we discuss podcasting, writing and having her own profile on IMDB.
