AND it was another really big week here at Country Music #CMchat! Our team is growing; we now have two amazing interns, as well as a salesperson, and a manager/agent (well, I do anyway!). I am happy to be expanding and creating a legacy of we. Everyone works very hard around the clock to follow what’s going on and bring you creative, original content.
In case you didn’t know, all of this has been my full time job for nearing on 7 years this December (#CMchat is only 3 1/2 years old). That includes being me, this blog, hosting #CMchat/Twangout, hosting outside events, corresponding, consulting, etc. I love the notes people send me and I am such a big believer in the “you gotta give it away to keep it” motto when it comes to learning. With that said, this is my full-time job, how I put roof over my head, food on the table, gas in the tank, and money in the bank. There are people on my team who do full-time social media management and I do private consulting on a per project basis, depending on the client or the project. I am very aware of what my sphere of knowledge is and only take projects I know I can slay. 😉
Now to be a little bit of tease….I will be in New York on Monday and might just be hanging out with this guy somewhere….
….and then just plain bragging ’cause we’ll be doing a Twitterivew with this guy…
Hope you will join the conversation!
Last week’s #WhoseBoots? were from Brantley Gilbert’s feet! Congratulations to our winner Lin Alayna!! She won a $150 gift Certificate to GypsySoule!
