Chris Brogan has been something of a mentor over the last few years. Pretty much since I started Industry Portage. I forget how I found him. I think I was simply looking for help on marketing and social media for the business. I’ve never met someone more generous with their time and knowledge. We interacted a bit through his blog posts and newsletters and we became virtual friends. Perhaps with hubris, I consider him a friend, though we’ve never met. He’s been tremendously supportive of what I’ve built with Industry Portage and has even been a customer a few times over. He’s written a few books about marketing in this digital age and have even been a New York Times Best Selling Author.
Recently, Chris came out with another gem, The Freaks Shall Inherit The Earth.
It it truly an honor to have been interviewed and included in this book. Chris writes, “RJ Diaz runs Industry Portage, a company that produces laptop bags, duffel bags, and other utilitarian goods with a kind of rugged beauty. R.J. comes from the construction industry, which isn’t a field known for its fashion sense.” Want to know why he thinks I’m a freak? Please buy the book for the rest of the interview and SO MUCH MORE.
Whether you are an entrepreneur or employee, I highly recommend you also sign up for his weekly newsletter with tons of takeaways for personal and business growth.
The Freaks Shall Inherit The Earth is a guide for the kind of person who wouldn’t normally pick up a business book.
