Podcast with Jennifer Zick: Marketing Second Shift

I recently had the privilege of being featured on the Marketing Second Shift podcast. Chaunce Stanton, CEO Co-Founder of Chronicals Digital – and producer of the podcast – covered a huge range of topics with me, including: EOS / Traction, Marketing Automation, Sales, Work-Life Balance (or lack thereof), and my love of family, yoga, and trips up north. Trust me…it all fits together in the Authentic Brand story. 🙂  These excerpts from my interview with Chaunce are republished here with his permission.
