The Grit Podcast is a group formed to discuss local events and influencers in the local Detroit area. The cast members are Tristan, Veronica and Erin. I was invited to be a co-host on their show to discuss the positive and negative effects of social media.
Positive: It is a free platform for those in pursuit of building a brand and reaching an audience. Individuals benefit from it as well as businesses with excellent marketing opportunities.
Negative: Social media was designed to humanize people. Connect with others that you might not had otherwise had the chance to. Sometimes it seems as if it has dehumanized us. We forget that these are real people on the other end of the screen.
The cast also asked my book, The Blueprint : Playing and Winning with Losing Hand. Erin said she loved a message in my book where I stated, "There is Christ in every Crisis. In the Chinese culture the symbol for crisis is both opportunity and danger."
