Episode 42: Talk About Social Media Right Now with Kimberly Rhodes
In this episode, I chat with wedding planner and fellow extrovert Kimberly Rhodes about social media, right now. Kimberly and I discuss topics that some people might not like to talk about. But she shares why and how the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement should be showing up in your social media right now. It’s clear that 2020 is a year of change and revolution, and Kimberly gives actionable tips on how to keep your social media current without being inauthentic.
So if you’re someone who has been silent or unsure of what to post, you need to listen in below.
About Kimberly Rhodes
With more than 20 years of event planning experience, ranging from corporate conferences to non-profit galas, Kimberly Rhodes found her love for weddings while planning her own in 2011. Now in its ninth year, her award-winning event planning company Hitched Events focuses on beautifully-detailed weddings and other celebratory events in the Dallas area.
In 2016, Kimberly launched This Week in Weddings, one of the first wedding industry podcasts for entrepreneurs, now enjoyed by event professionals all over the world.
When she’s not planning and designing weddings or co-hosting a podcast, you can find her watching a reality show on Bravo, cuddled up with her husband, dog, and a glass of wine, or digging into chips and queso on a sunny patio.
