We had such a great time chatting with Rachel Thompson of BadRedhead Media. My first task was to read her bio introducing her to the program. Rachel's bio is so lengthy because her experience in the realm of social media is legendary. Be sure to listen to our little chat, she provides a wealth of knowledge about all of the new trends in social media and book marketing. She had so much to say we've made it into two podcasts. Stay tuned, we will be sharing part two in a month or so.
