It's Time To Sell: Fireside chat with Marty McDonald
Entrepreneurship and the Value of Personal Branding w/ Marty McDonald
Today I’m talking to Marty McDonald. Marty is the go-to guy for what works in social media marketing. He’s the co-founder and CEO at Bad Rhino Inc and has used social media strategies to actively recruit and build online marketing businesses for over 12 years.
He knows how to harness the power of social media and has consulted with small businesses and startups and helped them use that power to get off the ground.
This is a really laid back episode and I particularly liked our discussion around personal branding, and I love how he has stepped outside the box and began speaking as a means of sharing his knowledge, his value and be of services to his potential customers, many of whom go on to become his customers.

As long as you have something valuable that you can explain that helps somebody in some way shape or form…sales is not as daunting as you make it out to be in your head.
