Building a Community Around Your Passion with Jarrie Bradshaw

In this episode of Viewpoints, I interview writer and social media strategist, Corey Townsend aka Jarrie Bradshaw, about how he’s created a community around something he loves (and that we all should love) -brunch!

Shortly after bonding over foodie tweets, I learned that he’s currently developing social media strategy and content for @BrunchNoir in celebration of “brunchin’ beauties & beaus of the African diaspora.” His love for entertaining through his words (and food) have led to the success of the Brunch Noir brand that is rapidly growing via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.


Join us for Episode 2, as we discuss building a social media community around your passion.

“Let’s face it, brunch without mimosas is just a sad breakfast…” –see how @JarrieBradshaw is growing the @BrunchNoir community using social media
