SPOS #528 - Keeping Social Media Fresh With Jason Keath

Welcome to episode #528 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. This past week was a tough one for me, and owe Jason Keath a huge apology. I was supposed to be one of the main speakers at his incredible Social Fresh conference (which took place over this weekend in Orlando, Florida). I had a sudden and scary medical issue come up that precluded me from travel, and I had to cancel on him (and another event, out in Los Angeles). It's a terrible feeling knowing that you are letting someone down. That is only made worse, when it's someone as kind as Jason. Thankfully, Sally Hogshead came to our rescue (thanks, Sally... you're the best!), but still... it sucks. Jason works hard as the founder and CEO of Social Fresh Conference. He has a passion for bringing together the smartest voices in marketing, and getting them to share what really works. He's also a keynote speaker, in his own right and a podcaster over at Social Toolkit Podcast. With that, he has many thoughts on the current state of social media and what it is going through. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #527 - Fiercely You With Jackie Huba

Welcome to episode #527 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. Jackie Huba had it all (and still does). She had three bestselling books on marketing and customer loyalty (please tell me that you own Monster Loyatly - her book on Lady Gaga, Citizen Marketers and Creating Customer Evangelists), while becoming one of the more popular public speakers on the subjects. Then, her personal live changed, and she began questioning the work that she was doing. She needed to find another level of confidence. She found that in the drag queen movement. Through research and personal interest, she uncovered something truly fascinating: drag queens are incredibly adept at transforming into, bold personas for performance. There is a direct lineage between that skill and our personal/professional life. Enter: Fiercely You - Be Fabulous and Confident by Thinking Like a Drag Queen. It's her latest book, and a shift in how she wants to think about her personal brand and her business model. Tons of interesting insights, from my good friend, Jackie (whose drag persona is Lady Trinity - awesome name). Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #526 - Kevin Kelly On The Promise And Future Of Technology

Welcome to episode #526 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. I could not be more excited. When anyone uses the term "Futurist," there is only one name that comes to mind: Kevin Kelly. If you have not read his latest book, The Inevitable - Understanding The 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our World, you are truly missing out on the opportunity to read and understand what new businesses are going to thrive (and which ones are going to die). Kevin is the Senior Maverick at Wired magazine. He co-founded the magazine in 1993, and served as its Executive Editor for its first seven years. He is also founding editor of the Cool Tools website, which has been reviewing tools daily since 2003. From 1984-1990 Kelly was publisher and editor of the Whole Earth Review, a journal of unorthodox technical news. He co-founded the ongoing Hackers' Conference, and was involved with the launch of the WELL, a pioneering online service started in 1985. His books include the best-selling New Rules for the New Economy, Out of Control (a graphic novel about robots and angels), The Silver Cord (an oversize catalog of the best of Cool Tools), and a personal favorite, What Technology Wants (from 2010). He here is, pontificating about technology and the future. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #525 - Ego Is The Enemy With Ryan Holiday

Welcome to episode #525 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. Some know Ryan Holiday as a media strategist, while others know him as a PR machine. Others know him as a speaker, and some know him as a bestselling author. Recently, it seems, Ryan has decided to focus on being a thoughtful non-fiction writer. His efforts have been paying off. His latest book, Ego Is The Enemy, has quickly become a huge bestseller. His last book, The Obstacle Is The Way, exploded as well, as many professional athletes (especially in the NFL) latched on to his modern take on stoicism. It may not seem obvious, but Ryan is looking back on an ancient form of philosophy and modernizing it with amazing insights for people today. How did he make this happen? What do brands (and business professionals) need to know about this? It's important and it matters. What is holding us back? How do we think about ourselves, others and the work that we do? Are social media and technology making us the worst people possible? Ryan's first book was, Trust Me I'm Lying, and his second book was, Growth Hacker Marketing. He's also a contributor to the New York Observer and many more. Many people consider Ryan to be one of the brightest thinkers in business today. I agree. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #524 - The Digital Transformation Playbook With David Rogers

Welcome to episode #524 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. These days, you can't throw a business professional down a flight of stairs without the words "digital transformation" tumbling out of their mouths. Every business, in every space (small, medium and large) is faced with how digital is transforming the very landscape of business today. When I think of digital transformation and what it takes, I think about David Rogers. Recently, David published his latest book, The Digital Transformation Playbook. David is a Columbia Business School professor, brand strategist, and the founder of the Center on Global Brand Leadership's acclaimed BRITE conference on brands, innovation, and technology. Famed ad critic, Bob Garfield, said this about the book: "Seldom have the effects of digital media on legacy industries and innovators alike been so succinctly and scholarly-ly explained. I won't much detail the Playbook, except to say it breaks down the five main areas of business turned upside down by digital revolution: customers, competition, data, innovation and value. Not to put too fine a point on it, everything we learned about these fundamentals since the Industrial Revolution has ceased to be true. To be even blunter, take Jack Welch's triumphalist bestseller from the old analog days and set it on fire; it is worthless. Rogers uses case histories to illustrate how and why the times they are a changing'. And more importantly, exactly how to adapt." David is also the author of The Network Is Your Customer, The Handbook On Brand And Experience Management, There's No Business That's Not Show Business, and many other pieces of research. Have you been struggling with digital transformation? Enjoy the conversation...
