This is our first DISRUPTu! that we've filmed in this weird kinda normal/still kinda paranoid world. But we're still bringing the goods and getting you what you need to know. In this episode, we discuss how social media has been validated as THE (use the long E sound here) king of communication, and how you can get the most out of it!

TAKEAWAYS:
1) The past couple of months have created winners and losers on social media!
2) You need to get in the right camp!
3) If your audience has a connection with you - now is the perfect time to bring up pre-need. If they don't have a relationship with you - this is the worse time!
