Kilted Broker - Using Social Media to Build My Business [Audio]


A couple months back I was having a conversation on twitter with a couple guys about how to use social media to effectively build a business. In response to that conversation, I decided to record a little bit of my story and explain how I used social media to grow and then sell my business. I sent the audio clip to the one guy in particular named Mike and then left it alone.

However recently I was asked to speak at a workshop called "How to be Awesome Online" put on by the guys at Strategy Lab in Regina SK. I told a couple of the same stories in my keynote and was immediately asked for the notes to my presentation. Alas, I didn't have any notes mostly because... well, I didn't make notes. Then I remembered I do have this sound clip, so I decided to share it with you now!
