This month I am excited to bring you my interview with Aliza Sherman. I first had the good fortune of meeting Aliza when we we both shared a seat on the PepsiCo Live with Purpose Panel at BlogHer ’09. What I instantly loved about Aliza was her ability to shake things up by speaking the truth. That was evident by one of her responses on the panel. (You’ll learn more details in our podcast interview…and you can listen to the recording of the PepsiCo panel online). I was thrilled to have the chance to get to know her a bit better post-panel at lunch and it was there that I learned the magnitude of her expertise – as a web pioneer, writer, consultant, and producer.
Here’s a brief bio to give you a taste of this:
