“With Instagram, it’s a lot different. Because sometimes I record it at home with my kids or in the backyard playing baseball with them. We’ll take a five-minute break and record that. So, it’s much more raw and unedited. It does give the viewer kind of a glimpse into my life. I think they know my kids, I’m very public about who they are and the life that we live.
So, tying the two together, I think anybody that views it gets to know who I am and what my life is like. And then when they listen to the podcast and read our blogs, they know what it is we do professionally. It’s done wonders for building relationships and new prospects and new partners coming into the firm.”
