  • In case you missed it, #THINKDIGITAL is here! I launched my first podcast last week. It’s a show dedicated to helping you think differently about your digital life. Email marketing, social media, content marketing, blogging—if it’s digital, we’re talking about. The response has been great: 20 five-star ratings, 16 favorable reviews.

  • Follow your dreams.
  • I spent the tail end of last week shooting a book trailer and interviewing Shaun King in NYC. Everything is working towards the release of my first book, The Social Church. I can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on! Here’s a sneak peek of what it looked like from my perspective to shoot the video!
  • I find the discussion around remote workers fascinating. As one who has worked remotely for years, I understand concerns on both sides of the the debate. This article helps put things in perspective (and, coincidentally, reveals what desperate companies do when they feel threatened.) HT to the affable @alli!
  • If you live in/around the Des Moines area, I’d love to see you for a free workshop I’m teaching at Drake University, “Social Media for Business.” We’ll dig into how to create a measurable plan of success for your social media efforts. Don’t be fooled—it takes work!
  • Speaking of social media results, I’m working with a select group of clients to create social media audits for their respective organizations. The results are surprising even to me. You don’t know what you don’t know, you know? I’ll be sharing another opportunity to reserve an audit for you or your organization soon. Notification will be sent exclusively to my email list.

  • Why you should stop giving things away for free.
  • My favorite pic from my New York trip.
  • BELOW: Breaking news. You’re getting hitched.

Top-of-Mind Mondays

  • Are you a mindful marketer? (Oh, and we’re all marketers now.)
  • I sent this clip to my newsletter subscribers last week. It’s a 4-minute preview of #THINKDIGITAL, the new podcast I’m creating. The first episode drops middle of the month. Get early access by signing up here.
  • Which path will you choose? The blue pill, or the red pill?
  • Had a great conversation with my mother last night. If you are wondering what you’ve been created for, what themes are prevalent in your life, call your mom and ask. Thanks, Ma!
  • The no-nonsense guide to getting paid for your expertise. A great read by Amber Naslund—she’ll be a guest on an upcoming episode of #THINKDIGITAL.
  • The joys and pains of being a remote worker.
  • Friend and fellow Moody author, Scott McClellan, just released his first book, Tell Me a Story. Scott’s one of those guys where, when you first meet him, you don’t realize there is legendary wit lurking just beneath the surface.
  • Really digging Tumblr lately. Such a unique social platform. Here’s mine: Stuff Justin Likes. Do you Tumbl?
  • In redesigning this site, I’ve worked with the amazing Dustin Stout. Each step of the way, I’m asking the questions, “Does this element need to be here?” Turns out the correct answer, most of the time, is “no.”
  • If you like TweetDeck, you might want to get all your use out of it while you still can. Twitter is sinking native apps.
  • BELOW: A fifteen-second clip of the new Daft Punk song, looped for 10 straight hours.
