The New iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus – My Discussion With Mark Reardon on KMOX Radio

iPhone comparison

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are scheduled to ship any day now. The 6 is a 4.7″ phone, while the 6 Plus is a 5.5″ monster phablet. Which one am I going to buy? I am still undecided, but that big phone is so tempting. I use my phone for email, tweeting, texting, photography, and Netflix. A big screen would make all of these activities more awesome. Most calls I take on it, I’m using my Bose QC-15 over-the-ear noise-canceling headphones (which truly means I don’t care about how I look when taking calls!). Therefore, I’m not holding the phone up to my ear. And besides, as I said on-air, not sure I really care how I look with the phone.

Mark Reardon saw me post the above photo on my Facebook page, which depicts my 3.5″ iPhone 4S and visual cutout representations of the two new iPhones, and called me in to talk about the two new iPhones.

The Trick to Social Media Success?

When we all get our neural implants installed, thereby relegating Google Glass to the trash heap (nevermind our long-deceased iPhones), the key to our success will not be mastering the technology. Nothing will be more determining and necessary than depositing the right thoughts into the device.

Social media is no different. Don’t master the bat; it’s just a piece of wood. Master your preparation, your knowledge of the pitches thrown, and your swing.

Texting With Your Mom Can Be Fun

This was about our local football team, who had surrendered a touchdown in the first minute of the first quarter. Funny, we ended up coming back and winning. My mom (texting in white here) just got a new iPhone and doesn’t understand how autocorrect works or doesn’t work. She was trying to type Robert Griffin III’s abbreviated nickname “RGIII.” Hilarity ensues.

Interviews, Videos, And Appearances

Here’s a compendium of recent interviews, videos, and appearances I’ve done. Thanks to everyone that requested these interviews. I greatly enjoyed speaking with each of you.

1. Torrey McGraw interviewed me for his new¬†entrepreneur¬†website Grind and Thrive. As he readily admitted to me, yes his head was a bit off-center in the video. It doesn’t matter! We still had a great conversation, and we’ll probably have to do a part two.

2. Owen McGab Enaohwo of Hire Your Virtual Assistant interviewed me a few months ago. He asked some very specific questions about how I was able to build a personal brand and a t-shirt business while working a full-time job. And I reveal something in this interview that I’ve never publicly revealed before. (The audio on this one sounds like I’m in a cave (or in a Peter Frampton song), and the sound track doesn’t match the movement of my mouth. Nevertheless, it’s still a good interview!)




3. Russ Henneberry of Tiny Business Mighty Profits did a podcast interview with me. We discussed business use of social media, and why the numbers sometimes don’t matter.

4. As part of our #SavePratzels campaign, I appeared on the Mason and Remy show on 93.7 The Bull. As I’ve been saying, all we need now is a buyer!

5. Jon Falk and I discuss me joining Falk Harrison. We talk about how it happened, what each of us were thinking in the year leading up to my hiring, and what we plan on doing for our clients.

6. This is from a few months back, but I had a blast being on David Siteman Garland’s show The Rise To The Top.

7. Back in December, I did a tiny little podcast about how my body is changing (hint: it’s my iPhone’s fault)

8. As part of Webster University’s Walker Speaker Series, I participated in a social media panel discussion. Thanks to Patrick Powers for inviting me to speak, Charla Lord for facilitating my appearance, and to Dean Akande for deftly handling the emcee duties.
