The Italian Breadcrumbs


Social media brings people together…

…you just need to follow the breadcrumbs that lead you to your people, :)


I’m constantly humbled by the amazing and giving people that come into my life.

Over the past couple years, I’ve met several colleagues and mentors who’ve helped shaped the course of my business and life.

One of those special human beings is Donna Cravotta.

As I’ve told her many times, her advice, strategy and the occasional kick in my ass have been vital to my growth. It’s why she’s on my Mount Rushmore of Influencers, :)

Recently, we sat down and chatted on her FB Live program, Social PR Live.

During the conversation, we talked about how social brought us together, the importance of true engagement, cutting through the noise online, and how she helped me craft the #yeahabsolutely hashtag.

Check out the entire conversation in the video below:
