    First, a huge thanks to Craig (http://www.ungagged.com) for reaching out to me and asking me to speak. He asked that I stop by and say hello to the community, introduce myself, and share the WTH?!?! behind why he asked me -- a lippy broad with no filter -- to speak at the Conference in November -- which is certainly my pleasure!



    Well, I started my online career as an SEO copywriter back in 2007. I've been writing words for the web forever and have the fortune to have worked in partnership with some amazing SEO firms over the years. I evolved into a blogger, and then columnist for Entrepreneur Magazine and now American Express OPEN Forum, and wrote a couple of books along the way. Today, I'm a no-BS strategist that works with high performing entrepreneurs and executives, getting them "unstuck" so they can get on with being awesome.


    Back in 2012, I was lucky enough to be asked to be a part of TEDxBoulder -- one of the largest TED-branded events in the world. (No pressure, right?!) My talk was selected as one of the TED Editor's Selections, a huge compliment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4DOJpB2I8o --- If you care. Maybe you don't. Either way, it's all groovy. What's funny is that my talk and about 65 other TEDx talks were targets of a click traffic scam on YouTube, causing me to lose over 30,000 views when YouTube took the video down. It's back up, but I share the "pissed" about having to start over. Funny anecdote: there's a slide in my talk that's become one of the most widely shared slides from any TED-related talk ever. Guess which one


    So, why me and why IRL? I hate wasting people's time. I'm also a raging introvert and hate it when people tell me to be something I'm not in order to "succeed in business." I love the f-bomb, I don't have a filter, and believe that the world would be a better place if people would focus on getting shit things done instead of tearing other people down. Craig asked me to be part of the conference's speaker slate, so here's my promise to you as attendees:


    Laughter. Let's laugh.
    Bullshit. Let's skip it.
    Death by Powerpoint. Yeah, that's not going to happen either.
    Stuff that makes life and business better? Let's talk about that.


    If you'd like to learn more about me, http://www.erikanapoletano.com


    And I look forward to meeting you in November


    PS: Have a question for me? Ask me.


    ~Erika

    BHWconference has grown into something better, bigger & more essential to the success of your business.
    We've teamed up with some of the world's most influential and provocative thinkers and we're sponsoring the event which will truly help you maximise your earning potential. It's a unique, no holds barred UNconvention: UNGAGGED - hosted this year by Erika Napoletano.

    UNGAGGED will break rules. Rules you may not know existed but which have constricted every other SEO convention you have ever attended.
    At UnGagged, geniuses who know how to help you profit, will speak without fear of being told to STOP, by the corporates who think they're in charge.
    You'll hear stuff you won't hear anywhere else, ever again. (At least, not until the next UnGagged!)

    Things are changing. And we're excited to be part of the change.
    Looking forward to seeing you at UnGagged.

    Check out the UnGagged discussion here http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f213-ungagged-2014/
