Carrie Kerpen is the CEO of Likeable Media and the host of the All The Social Ladies Podcast. Her podcast has included guests ranging from author Ann Handley to Carmen Shirkey Collins (of Cisco) and features some of the most influential women in business today. It's safe to say it's a can't miss podcast (lady or gentleman!). 

It's worth noting that her spouse, Dave Kerpen of Likeable Local, was a previous guest on the show. One of the coolest things about this podcast is hearing Carrie discuss some of the same things Dave and I discussed in order to hear both perspectives of the Kerpen family. 

This Week on Why I Social, Carrie and I discuss:

  • Building Community for "All The Social Ladies" 
  • Her side of the Kerpen wedding story
  • Managing time (as a CEO and a parent)

Nycole Hampton (@MsNycole) is a social media strategist at @ChooseChicago. She has a passion for all things Chicago and is the last of a trio of guests from a previous #socialroadtrip to Chicago this past summer with alumni Joel Renner. 

There's a ton to be impressed with from Nycole's resume - from managing her own freelance career alongside a full-time job - to her Instagram success leading the Choose Chicago accounts. She's also an active speaker speaking at events in and around the city (and beyond). 

This Week on Why I Social, Nycole and I discuss:

  • Her passion for the city of Chicago
  • The power of influencer marketing 
  • Using User-Generated Content (and Instagram)

Caitlin Waters (@Cait_Waters) is Digital Communications Manager at SocialWhirled, Director of Programming for Social Media Club Phoenix as well as host of the #chatwhirled twitterchat. She's also a Why I Social podcast ambassador. 

I've long had the opportunity to watch Caitlin work her magic running the #ChatWhirled twitter chat and seen her work from afar. Long before she was a Why I Social ambassador it was clear she was putting in her time and effort to progress her career and help others. 

From time working with Habitat to Humanity to her experience launching multiple social media accounts, Caitlin has kept herself busy and advanced herself professionally in a short amount of time. 

This Week on Why I Social, Caitlin and I discuss: 

  • Small-town versus big-town
  • Launching a new social media account
  • The story behind #ChatWhirled

This week's guests (the duo of Scott Stratten and Alison Kramer) are the team behind the UnPodcast. The podcast can best be described (as seen on Unmarketing.com) as "the business podcast for the fed-up". The pair is responsible for a fantastic collection of books and provides some real-life examples of things brands are doing both wrong and right. 

In addition to the podcast, Scott has written four best-selling business books, the newest being “UnSelling: The New Customer Experience” which was just named “Sales Book of the Year” by 1-800-CEOREAD. He also spends his time providing keynotes at conferences around the world. It was his closing keynote at Higher Ed Web 2015 in Milwaukee that provided me the opportunity to connect. He is a powerful speaker who commands your attention.

It's safe to say this team is a winning one - and their insights are on-point in regards to what is taking place in the social media and marketing world we live in today. 

This Week on Why I Social, Ali and I discuss: 

  • A day in the life the Unmarketing Podcast team
  • Creating a podcast with a dedicated video component
  • The importance of focus
