Interested in taking your results to the next level? Get a sneak peek of the training you’ll see in The Break Through Academy.

One of my favorite things to do is learn a new skill.

Something I’ve spent a lot of time learning lately, whether it be through/for my job or business, is how to share a compelling story through various social media platforms.

What better way to add on to this skill than to learn from someone who has spent years mastering the craft of content marketing?

Have you ever thought of what it really takes to integrate a blog and social media strategy with your product or service?

I didn’t realize how much goes into it until I had the chance to sit down with today’s guest on The Break Through Academy Show, the super-intelligent Brian Honigman.

Brian has quite a long list of accolades, but some of his highlights include speaking at NYU, The Huffington Post and being featured for his knowledge on blog sites such as Forbes, Entrepreneur and the Wall Street Journal.

He prides his work on being able to show people how to execute “Smart Social Storytelling,” a skill many business seek nowadays.

Brian and I could have gone on for hours, and I took pages worth of notes, so I won’t be surprised when you tell me the same happened for you!

Get ready for Episode 1 of The Break Through Academy Show!

In this episode you will learn:

  • The power of prioritizing your time with your content
