Mentor Monday: Beth Harte

Mentor Monday is a series where I feature people that have helped me when I needed it, whether or not I asked for it, and whether or not they even realize it.  I am extremely thankful for these people, and would not be where I am today, or where I will be tomorrow, without them.  If you know what’s good for you, you’ll connect with these individuals as well.

Feel free to join in and thank your mentors for everything they’ve done every #mentormonday.

This is Beth.
This is Beth.

Beth Harte

Her Blog.

Her Twitter.

Beth is awesome.  She’s been teaching me long before she even knew who I was.  I’ve been reading her blog for a long time, and can’t remember a single time that I’ve read one of her posts and didn’t come out learning something, or looking at something differently.

Being a great role model, Beth is always confident in her words, in person and online.  She knows what she’s talking about, and it shows.  She’s never afraid to challenge and question her community.  It’s something we can use more of, and as you may have noticed, many of my recent posts have had a similar goal in mind, much inspired by Beth.

As a mentor, Beth has been amazing.  After connecting for a short time before I moved to Philly for the summer, she was always responsive and willing to connect.  Now that I’m in Philly, I’ve really had a chance to get to know Beth a bit more and it’s been an honor.  She’s taken the time out of her busy schedule as the Community Manager for Marketing Profs, to sit down and give me advice online, she’s helped me set up Sweetups, connected me to the rest of the Philly social media community, invited me to Social Media Club events, and has just been very supportive in general.

I know I’ll always have a good time hanging out with Beth, whether in a professional setting or in a “social” setting (if that’s different anymore).

Thanks Beth.  Tweet that shit.

  1. Hey thanks David, I am truly honored! It has been a great pleasure getting to know you over the months and I am so glad you finally made it to Philly. I hope you stick around a while longer with us. 😉

    And don’t think for one minute that I don’t learn from you as well…

  2. Hahaha, “tweet that shit”???!? Awesome!!

    Great choice David – Beth is one of the smartest folks I know and you’re right, if there was an award for conversation stimulating blogs, Beth’s would be right up there.

    Definitely on the “need to meet” list!

  3. Danny, you are too kind!

    It’s funny as a kid I was CONSTANTLY (and I do mean constantly!) in trouble for talking, passing notes, whatever. Here it is all these years later and it’s my job. Who’d have thought? My elementary school teachers would be proud. 😉

    And yes, one of these days soon we will meet, I am sure of it!!

    BTW, “tweet that s***” was what I said at the recent Tweetup (My bad!!) because people weren’t putting their company names on their name tags. I said “that’s silly no self-promotion nonsense…so there, tweet that s*** out!” ;-)~
