I recently had the opportunity to meet Shannon Cherry at Ken McArthur's IMPACT event. She was an expert panelist, on stage with many of the superstars of Internet Marketing.
We'd crossed paths quite a bit over the last few years, but hadn't had much opportunity to talk. So, I was really looking forward to sitting down to chat in person (drink some wine… eat some sushi… sing karaoke… ) and we did all that and more – and there are videos to prove it.
Shannon is a very strong personality, and I immediately discovered that there's a huge heart under that. I tried to come up with a good way to describe her but was struggling, so I asked my friend Tracy for help.
We decided that Shannon is “smart as heck and snarky-sweet with a twist of sass (after all she IS a red-head)“. We hit it off immediately.
ok, enough mooshy stuff. Here's Shannon's bio – so you understand WHY I had her on the show beyond “I like her”:
