You thanks so much for coming on. Because this is so important, I think that bb people really need to hear this, so let's get your backstory as we were talking before you have something in common, we both worked at Bell Labs in Naperville Illinois. So, how did you go from being? You Know Project Engineer Project manager to this. You know social media educator at a university. How did that? Start out as I told you I mary the General Manager's daughters, so I had started job hunt. And I got pretty fortunately for the Chairman of the Board at Gould at that time. Rolling Meadows Illinois and ED evolved lot of job transfers. So took me out to Massachusetts I. got into factory. AUTOMATION TELECOMMUNICATIONS AVIONICS SUPERCONDUCTING ELECTRONICS. And I was going through a lot of companies. I G E be of Goodridge ended up rockwall. Where my career ended right after nine eleven, it just crippled the whole aerospace business, so that moved me into academia, so that was around two thousand and one got to my university Nova southeastern about fifteen years ago and I've been there ever since. About. I think about twelve years ago, those were made this real big push to get into social media and you can imagine with with. Faculty academia to Hyannis. Because I really saw this common. Relationship Marketing Guy a different jobs ahead like strategic planning etcetera, so I got it. And I followed a lot of these practitioners.

The second one was on these archetypes because in a process of doing this. Beyond the survey, we went into over a thousand linked recommendations for those hundred seventy-one social media influencers like yourself. And we start realizing that there's a variety of different personalities that lead to this effluence. Not Everybody was engaging. Not Everybody had emotional passion..
