This show I’m talking with Aswan Morgan. Also known to many in the Hip-Hop world as Free Speech. My man's made quite a name for himself in the music scene even grabbing great blog placements early on with sites like Okayplayer, DJPremierBlog.com and others. But outside of the music he’s always been about his business and presentation. 
Over the years he’s consulted for, worked with and founded multiple companies in the tech world. From helping solidify already established companies to start ups like his current GTFOFlights.com. The site where you will find the lowest possible prices on flights internationally and domesticly…domestic.. you know what I mean get off my back.
He’s also the Head of personalization consulting at Rich Relevance which means if you’d ever bought something online from a Costco, khols or Urban Outfitters amongst many others, Aswan may be responsible for making your shopping experience easier. 
We speak on how to personalize your webstore to make more online sales and so much more in the question section. We definitely got a good one for you today.
We also have our lucky winner for the Farmers Market/Status Escalate contest and will announce his or her name at the next break. Thank you for subscribing, rating and reviewing the show on iTunes and for spreading the word to others that can benefit by listening.
