“I’m the first one to say follow your passion, but sometimes you just can’t monetize your passion. You got to realize that!” Joe Pulizzi

Thank you for joining us once again listeners, and are we excited today to let you know about our guest. Today, we have the man who is known as the “Godfather of Content Marketing”, Joe Pulizzi on our show!  Joe started Content Marketing Institute back in 2007 and later started Cheif Content Officer Magazine and Content Marketing World. These have become the leading education and training organizations for content marketing as well as the largest in-person content marketing event in the world. There are few people in the content marketing field that haven’t heard about Joe and today we got to pick his mind for almost an hour.
