Amber Mac’s book Outsmarting Your Kids Online: A Safety Handbook for Overwhelmed Parents is available on Amazon in both print and as an eBook.
Speaker, author and social media thought leader Amber Mac joins us in studio to discuss her book Outsmarting Your Kids Online. She shares a bit about the process of self-publishing the work with co-author Michael Bazzell after being inspired by Guy Kawasaki.
A book, a business, TV and radio shows and a busy social life are a lot to balance. Amber credits her multi-level success to working with great partners and loving what she does. It may surprise some to learn that Amber grew up in Prince Edward Island, Canada, going to school in a one-room schoolhouse. A big imagination and big dreams led her to beginning her career in San Francisco.
