“I’ve worked with Frank on numerous occasions throughout the past several years. He and I have given lectures, speeches and seminars for a variety of businesses pertaining to the topics of marketing and social media. I end up the student at every event. I hate to go after him because I am still taking notes. His approach in many instance makes so much sense that I find my self thinking, I should have know that. He also has a great network of friends and businessmen. I have been introduced to many people I really wanted to meet by him. I look forward to every time we meet. I’m thinking of stalking him. You should too”

“Franklin is simultaneously professional and very fun to work with. He was the perfect man to host the ShowGirls podcast as he has great chemistry with the ladies and also the ability to reign in the conversation when it got too rowdy or to throw out another topic when it got too quiet. Franklin’s work with the RumorGirls podcast already illustrated that he could transparently produce a show, letting the feminine energy shine through, while providing that masculine mirror women seem to shine most brightly in front of, and this talent of his worked equally as well on the audio-via-Skype format of ShowGirls. Love ya, Frank!!!”
