Tara Hunt is currently the President and Founder of Truly Social Inc (the best place for businesses to learn how to dive into the digital world) and is the host of "Truly Social with Tara", YouTube video series to help people understand and "get" what it means to be social in the digital world. Tara is also the author of "The Power of Social Networking: Using the Whuffie Factor to Build Your Business", a book about harnessing the power of the web to increase Whuffie, a currency based on reputation (being nice and/or notable). 

Listen in to hear what Tara has to say about the work she is currently doing, the work she had been doing before starting Truly Social and her YouTube video series, what it's like to hire people, what got her into social media, how she feels about having been deep in social media before we knew what it was, memes and viral videos, her book, what motivates her day to day, her involvement in politics and the Trudeau campaign, how school boards can better use social media to connect with their families, the first time she used the internet, what she would say to someone to help them find motivation/inspiration, what she feels like when she speaks publicly, the mispronouncing of Whuffie, and whether she would start her own podcast
