Brian Carter: Social Guru and Funny Guy


I've known Brian Carter for a LOOOOOONG time.  Ok - I'll fess up, I've known OF Brian Carter for a long time because of his book LinkedIn for Business: How Advertisers, Marketers and Salespeople Get Leads, Sales and Profits from LinkedIn.

And then I was privileged to get to meet Brian F2F at Social Media Marketing World (and even got to eat dinner with him - 2x!)

And now I get to call him a friend.

So what's the first things friends do?  Ask each other for favors of course.


Well, I did anyway!  And Brian, because he's a nice guy too, agreed to be on our #LinkedInChat tonight (July 14th). So I am super psyched!

Ok, in case you are new to social media, he's a prolific writer, has not one - but THREE podcasts, has been seen on every major new outlet in the world. And lives in Charleston, SC.

He is also plagued by vomiting cats... or was that supposed to be a secret? 

Also - and not related in anyway - It's Brian's Birthday tomorrow! (in case you wanted to plague his Facebook Page with birthday wishes)
