Pivoting from a career in broadcast journalism was a big decision for me.
I loved everything about a newsroom environment: the breaking news, researching topics, identifying sources for stories, and feeling like I had a pulse on trends and issues taking place in the world.
I was successful at it, too. In fact, I worked at some of the biggest news corporations in the world, including CNN, ABC News, CBSLA and others.
However, at some point — because I was spending so much time on social media listening for breaking news and looking for story ideas — my interest in social media evolved.
