Bossome Experts of the Week

bossome-logo
The response we’ve received after putting out last week’s “Most Bossome” list has been overwhelming. Members love it… Experts who were chosen were excited to get some well-deserved recognition… It gave new experts something to shoot for and made them spice up their profiles to better display their bossomeness…

We joke. We kid. But when you make the Bossome list, it means you stand out over about 500 other experts who have applied. Our team goes through the painstaking task of looking at each profile and hand-selecting them. This isn’t an easy decision to make if you saw just how bossome the rest of our applicants are. Our staff gets pretty attached to certain ones who don’t make the final cut and there are sometimes differences of opinion – Arguments break out. Desks are flipped over. Egos are shattered. HR has to get involved. It gets pretty intense. The point is – it’s not just a random selection.

Knowing that, making the list gives you mad social cred. Sharing with your friends that you made the Most Bossome list is something you can brag about (if that’s your style), or at least you can print the list out and hang it on your refrigerator. So, that said, here’s this week’s most Bossome:

Matthew Kepnes

Matthew Kepnes

Top reasons to call him…

  1. Blogging
  2. Adventure Travel
  3. Tribe-Building

Why we like him…

It’s really sad how boring our lives look compared to Matthew’s. He travels the world and shows others how to cut the cord from cubicle life and head out on the adventures they’ve always wanted to embark on. Matthew has built a big following who have supported him on his excursions due to the value he provides showing them that traveling isn’t as expensive or as daunting of a task as they might think.

Jack Groot

Jack Groot

Top reasons to call him…

  1. Coffee
  2. Team Building
  3. New Venture Development

Why we like him…

Our office would shut down were it not for ‘the nectar of the gods’ as we call it – coffee. Jack’s a coffee man. And as you know, the coffee biz isn’t an easy one to succeed in, but Jack’s done just that, having created an empire with JP’s Coffee & Espresso Bar, Rubyjuice Fruit and Smoothies, On Track Coffee Consulting and the Midwest Barista School (MBS). He then went on to franchise the Rubyjuice concept before selling it to Cutting Edge Foods, based out of Nashville TN. Hit him up and find out how to brew a stimulating business out of your passion.

Meighan O’Toole

Meighan O’Toole

Top reasons to call her…

  1. Social Media Strategy
  2. Content Development
  3. Blog Marketing

Why we like her…

First of all, we like her style… But above that, after three years, Meighan grew her blog to the point where Yahoo was beating down her door bringing her on to join their Social Media team in Sunnyvale, CA. Since then, she’s gone on to work as a Community Manager for Wikia (Wikipedia’s sister site) and most recently, WIRED. Currently living and working out of Oakland, Ca., Meighan’s the one to call if you need a hand engaging on the social interwebs.

Pallav Nadhani

Pallav Nadhani

Top reasons to call him…

  1. Bootstrapping
  2. Inbound Lead Generation
  3. Lean Startup
  4. General Badassery

Why we like him…

Do you hate Microsoft Excel? We’ve had our issues with it before… But unlike us, Pallav decided to just go ahead and BOOTSTRAP HIS OWN COMPANY (at age 16) because he didn’t like the charting capabilities Excel provided. Taking the $1500 he earned from an article he wrote in wrox press as seed money, FusionCharts(now a multi-million dollar company) was born. Today, FusionCharts has offices in Bangalore and Kolkata, India and is used by over 80% of Fortune 500 companies. Racking up a base of 20,000 customers and 450,000 users in 118 countries including tech giants Apple, Facebook, Google, as well as the US Federal Government. May be worth a call… Just sayin’…

Top reasons to call her…

  1. Innovation Consulting

Why we like her…

Denise is a social provocateur. Her company, Lumose Narrative Design, disrupts the social landscape through stories and creates positive change in society. This is awesome (sorry, bossome). The tagline from their website reads, “Whether you manage a website or a watershed, you need a new way to move things forward that’s agile, effective and intuitive.” The art of crafting a compelling story for your brand is pretty much a requirement in business right now. If you need help telling one, we suggest you give Denise a call.
