I find social media to be a beast, it’s an unruly, self-defining, ever-changing technological creature. There are no rules. No boundaries. It’s a place to play. It never forgets. But always forgives eventually. There are so many platforms, so many ways to reach people and by the same token an overwhelming amount of dizzying noise that I find it hard to find authenticity.
Thankfully, we have Megan Davis from Spendlove and Lamb to help us make sense of it all. I’ve known Megan for a few years now and have admired how passionate she is for this creature that we all love, and hate to love.
In this episode you will learn and be inspired by:
- Who Megan is and how she built her storytelling and social media training, coaching & consultancy business, Spendlove and Lamb organically
- Why Megan became ‘houseless’ and what she learned about generosity and the power of amplifying a message
