"Well, you must realize, Harriet, knowing everything won’t do you a bit of good unless you use it to put beauty in this world. True or false?"
My name is Maggie Shafer, and I am an award-winning journalist turned startup media person. I work at bulb - an app for publishing and sharing knowledge - where I’ve pioneered and grown the marketing, business development and expansion departments, doing everything from designing and executing a marketing plan for a new app to stalking investors in fancy coffee shops and convincing them to talk to me. It’s really fun. My current title is Head of Expansion so that people will know to take me seriously even though I use the words ‘like’ and ‘yeah’ too much. Before bulb I wrote for a business newspaper and before that a debt settlement company run by a former ping pong champion who goes by the title “Red Bear.” Ask me about it.
I really like learning about complex things and then explaining them to other people in entertaining ways. You can usually find me doing both somewhere in everyone’s favorite square.
