10 Jul Creating & running a Facebook group with Natalie Eckdahl
I’m a huge believer in co-opetition and shining the light on others which is why I was thrilled to connect on blab with Natalie Eckdahl for Episode #99 of the Go to Girl Podcast.
Natalie is a fellow podcaster, who I met in person while attending Social Media Marketing World in March 2015. She is the co-founder of Schedule Max and host of the BizChix Podcast. You can watch the replay video below and check out the interview on Blab here. It’s double-Natalie as we share our gold on running a Facebook group.
She has a strong background in business, worked as a consultant in a multinational corporation and travel around the world. When she had children, she changed her lifestyle and transitioned to freelance consulting. In 2010, they launched ScheduleMax.com, which is an online scheduling software 24/7. The software have the ability to text reminders (available only to North American clients). In 2014, she launched BizChix, tapping fellow entrepreneurs to hear more women on air.
