Yes, she totally Googled the temperature in which paper spontaneously combusts. Why? Because she is spontaneously combusting her clients into the digital age via social media. She has several large clients in the automotive and restaurant industries. BARS AND CARS, BABY! She’s a firm believer in just sticking with what you know best. She handles their recruiting and social media marketing needs. She has employees and interns working for her company.
You guys! THIS IS SO EXCITING! SHE HAS MADE HER DREAMS COME TRUE!
She learned how to do all of these things because she had a couple of really cool jobs in the past. Her favorite dealership in the whole wide world is the Thayer Family Dealership out in Bowling Green, Ohio. She learned from Mr. Thayer that being small town means you do right by people. Always. Here she was a Sales & Digital Marketing Professional at Ralph Thayer Chevrolet. She’s also the former Human Resources Director of a large car dealership near Toledo, Ohi0. But she hated firing people, so she quit after eight years. Selling cars was way more fun, and a great way to save money to launch 424 Degrees.
She is an expert on all things social media. She holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Toledo with a Major in Human Resources Management. Besides selling cars and managing car dealerships, Meredith is a Staff Writer for Workforce Magazine’s Fistful of Talent, Relationships Editor for Curvy Girl Guide, and runs this popular humor blog. She has managed social media campaigns for brands such as Lands’ End, Schick, K-Y Brand, Care.com, Callaway Golf, Tide, Hewlett Packard, 1-800-FLOWERS, Crystal Light, Thayer Family Dealerships, The Claddagh, The Wiliam Swade Agency, and Rumor Hotel Las Vegas. Her Klout score is 13 points higher than Matt Damon’s Klout score, and she considers this a really big deal.
She excels at public speaking. Specifically on social media for business, social recruiting, social media mistakes, and how not to be a crappy person.
She also enjoys long walks on the beach.
She’s allergic to everything outside.
