social media pubcast marcus sheridan Making a Difference and Changing Lives with Marcus Sheridan

Marcus Sheridan — the man, the myth and the legend — pulled up a barstool and we got sensitive on this week’s Pubcast.

This was a fun one to do. Marcus is a guy I’ve always looked up to. I’d even consider him something of a mentor. Reading his stuff is what got me through a lot of tough times, and his content is really what set me on the path I’m on now.

Eventually, we’d get to know each other personally, and I consider him a friend. Yes, he’s an amazing marketer and public speaker — world class, in fact. But he’s an even better dude.

In this week’s episode, we go a bit off the grid. We don’t mess much with Facebook marketing, but instead focus quite a bit on many of the topics that we grapple with every day as entrepreneurs and parents.

Here are a few of the topics we covered this week:

  • Balancing the life of an entrepreneur and fatherhood
  • Making a difference and changing lives
  • Technology and the creation of art
  • Financial security vs. innovation
  • The obsession over stats
  • Storytelling and earning trust

I mentioned how my 12-year-old son Michael had done a “Me Project” video for school in which he Googled a picture of me and found the cheesiest one possible. Here it is…

    Jon, what a great podcast with Marcus Sheridan. The first time I heard him speak was through one of Mike Stelzner’s Social Media Examiner Summits. I have been a fan since.

    This particular podcast was touching for me because I can relate to running a business and family. Family is always first.

    In closing and most important, I respect and admire your work. You do an excellent job at teaching and the videos are great.

    I am currently in the process of setting up a recording studio in my office. I would love to know all that you did to set yours up. I will write you later about the consulting cost to chat with me on the details.

    Cheers,
    Donna

      Hi, Donna! Marcus is amazing. I love the way that guy speaks and the way he brands himself.

      As far as my studio goes, I can give you some basic tips about what I did. But I wouldn’t consider myself an expert. I actually had Films About Me (FAME) help me set it up. Travis Houston has also been giving me some camera tips (I bought a new camera that I still haven’t used!).

      If you need either of their info, let me know.

      Jon
