People I Value: Amber Naslund

Social Networking is about people. And despite the ignorant caricatures of many people about social media, when you boil it down, under all the noise and trivia and spam there are some really great people.

One of them is Amber Naslund.

Why? Well, two words come to mind, and you can alter the punctuation any way you like. She’s a real professional. Real. Professional.

If you’re connected to Amber via her blog and/or Twitter, you find a person who is doing her best to do great work, as a social media professional and as a mother. And she’s very real – whether she’s pulling her hair out with a sick child, or enjoying a great glass of wine, or wrestling with how to write on her blog, you’re getting the real deal.

Of course, reality is one part of the equation. Amber is also engaging and generous. And quite fun to be around. If you can’t learn from Amber and enjoy her (virtual or real) company, you might need a prescription for something.

So, if you don’t know Amber yet, you should. She’s Real. Professional.

    Wow. I’m a bit speechless, and definitely humbled. Being real is about the best compliment you can give me, so thank you so much for that.

    I’m touched by your kind words, and I’m very glad to call you my friend. Thanks again.

    I like Amber too. I’m blown away by her virtual self – always giving great advice, knock ’em dead humor and real stories.

    We have a history of never being able to meet up when I’m in Chicago. I think I’ll stop trying because either her or her child are sick when we try to do coffee. I don’t want anyone sick!

    I’ll see her at a conference…………..


    • Deb, don’t ever stop trying, please. It’s certainly not personal! I’m not in Chicago very much, even though it’s home, and when I am, my kiddo is my top priority. 🙂 But I’m determined that we’ll spend some time together soon.

    Couldn’t agree more! I have been connecting with Amber via Twitter and reading her blog for over a year. I have asked her for advise and help on several issues and she has responded and I consider her a mentor of sorts. I am a big fan.

    My guess is…you want to add about a billion followers get recommended in Steve Woodruff’s blog! 🙂
