Meet Our Social Media Myth-Busters

smmb-mythbusters-wall-web

I offer my humble and deep appreciation for all of our myth busters. This book is enriched because of their contribution. Take to heart and put into action the insights, tips and tools they have recommended and woven throughout the book for they are golden.

There were even more enriching insights that each myth-buster shared during our interviews. Luckily because of social media, we recorded most of these interviews using Google hangouts. The original live interviews are available on the blog.

 

Here is a little highlight about each myth-buster and where you can find more about them.
