Chris Brogan and I did this interview on Super Bowl Sunday a few hours before kickoff. I think much of what we covered is applicable to almost anyone who owns and runs their own business. I hope you enjoy the interview.
Just in case you’re not familiar with Chris, is is the CEO of Owner Media Group, a highly sought after professional speaker and the New York Times bestselling author of eight books and counting, including The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth, and Just Start Here.
I first became acquainted with Chris via his business development articles regularly featured in Forbes, The Boston Globe, Success, and USA Today. His popular newsletter and blog are also weekly business touching points that I highly recommend.

What I enjoyed most about this book is that it shares all the steps you need to take to properly build a foundation, attract followers, and expand your sphere of influence by providing value to others. In the end, this book will show you how to use social to be successful in sharing your business with others.
