Introducing BJ Mendelson
BJ Mendelson is my guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview.
is a man who ill be honest I stumbled across on the web, but as soon as I saw him, i thought “Right lets have him on the show”
He has a story to success that goes 100% in a different direction to what the world is telling you you must do.
Additionally he is a keynote speaker and author, books including Social Media Is Bullshit and Privacy: And How We Can Get It Back.
He first received attention in the late 2000s for turning his financial struggles during The Great Recession into media coverage.
With appearances in The New York Times, Newsweek, The Los Angeles Times, and others.
After building an unsuccessful national breast cancer outreach tour around the advice given by prominent social media marketers he changed direction.
Subsequent success in doing the same tour again the following year by doing the exact opposite of their advice.
He then went on to write a book called Social Media Is Bullshit based on his experience.
He later earned additional media attention for frequently taking on prominent social media experts and companies.
