Bree Kelley (@SmartSuiteBree) is a community manager at Casual Fridays (based in San Diego). She works remotely from the other side of the country in Cleveland, Ohio. You may also remember that Casual Friday Founder, Tyler J Anderson, joined the show in the first episode of 2016.

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

  • How networking (in-person) landed her a job 
  • Loving life in Cleveland
  • Slack and it's value to today's workplace

Welcome to the first edition of Why I Social Sessions - which will bring you short discussions focused on one-singular topic. This is not your standard Why I Social episode where we learn about a guest - but instead - we focus on important topics impacting the social media space today.

Today, on Why I Social Sessions, guest (and Why I Social alum) Lucy Rendler-Kaplan and I discuss changes happening on Twitter with a focus on #Twitter10k and the misinformation being spread regarding Twitter's big change. 

On Episode 1

1. Twitter changes - are they good or bad?

2. How/what misinformation is being spread about #Twitter10k

3. How will changes to Twitter impact NEW users of the platform? 

Following the conversation:

I'd encourage you to use the hashtag #WISSessions to share your thoughts.

This Week's Question(s): 

  • What do you think about the changes happening to Twitter?
  • Are you for or against Twitter's current evolution?

I had the pleasure of meeting Derek in 2015 at the Social Media Strategies Summit in Dallas where we were both speaking. I immediately knew that he'd be a great fit for the show and he does not prove me wrong. His story is a fascinating one and his work is even more impressive.

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)

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'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

When I (@CBarrows) first started the Why I Social podcast - I never expected to be a guest on my own show. As the story goes, around episode 20 or so - I started getting requests to here more about the show and why I decided to start it. I won't deny that it's always nice when people are interested - but I thought nothing of it. 

Nearly one year later this happens: A live blab - hosted by alum and friend, Vincenzo Landino (@VincenzoLandino) - where I'm a guest on my own show. It was a humbling experience as well as a valuable one - as it put me in the seat I've put more than 55+ alums previously. 

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

  • Starting Why I Social
  • How a handshake played a key role
  • My Five Favorites

Adam Dince (@AdamDince) is the Director of Earned Media at Deluxe Corporation and the co-founder of #Spoofchat. He brings over fourteen years of internet marketing experience to the podcast including everything from SEO, web development and social media. 

As I caught up with Adam this past week, he was just getting back from one of his speaking gigs at Minnesota Blog Con. Adam has lived in Arizona and New York prior to his move to settling in Minnesota. His experiences and strong network have continued to gain him opportunities and ultimately led to his current role at Deluxe Corporation. 

#Spoofchat is discussed in the last part of the podcast and is a weekly twitter chat mixing pop culture, humor, and social media into a unique blend of crazy fun.

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

  • Moving from New York to Minnesota

Lucy Rendler-Kaplan (@LUCYrk78) is a Senior Marketing Communications professional with over 17+ years of experience. She hails from the Chicago-metro area, is a fan of Chicago style pizza (yeah, we went there again) and you'll find her every week as a leader of #Contentchat. 

You may remember Lucy's name as she was one of the person's I met face-to-face during my #SocialRoadTrip with alum Joel Renner during our trip to Chicago in the summer. Like many of my guests - her appearance on the show is a long-time coming - and she's the ideal guest for the show as her accomplishments aren't illustrated by any sort of follower count. 

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

  • Identifying your customers using social media
  • What is "hustle"?
  • The return of the NYC versus Chicago pizza debate

Rachel Miller is Senior Social Strategist at PureMatter. Outside of her role at Pure Matter, she is also the co-host of #SBizhour (with Episode 1 guest, Brian Fanzo)

I've had the luxury of working with Rachel Miller during her time at Millennial CEO. During this time I can recall my first Google Hangout with Rachel. I immediately picked up that we were cut from one of the same pieces of cloth in regards to the topic of organization. It's this department that most persons I (and probably you) know can learn a thing or two.

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

  • Playing the long-game
  • The tricks of the trade to staying organized
  • Running and evolving #SBizHour
