Who Is Steve Murphy?
I have always maintained that true happiness comes from being true to yourself. I’m the same person in my professional life as in my personal life, and I have no regrets for making that decision.
Here’s a little bit about me: I love to work. Marketing is my passion, fueled by my desire to help others succeed. I work full time building the marketing department at PCG Digital Marketing, a fast paced Inc. 500 digital agency based in Eatontown, NJ. After hours I run SBC Marketing Group, a small business marketing consulting and design firm. This extra work keeps me sharp and motivated (and lets me take my girlfriend to nice restaurants.) My most recent project is Get Busy Media, a top 100 small business blog that aims to help entrepreneurs and business owners create smarter companies.
Here is a list of some of the businesses and leaders that inspire me to become greater:
- Tim Ferriss: Author of “The 4-Hour Work Week” and “The 4-Hour Body”. Tim is an ultimate life hacker who isn’t afraid to smash conventional wisdom to pieces and disrupt the status quo. This guy is a game changer.
- Malcom Gladwell: One of the most eloquent, anecdotal writers I’ve ever seen. Like Tim, his work typically disrupts the norms, and always gives me fresh new ideas.
- HubSpot: From a marketing perspective, this company absolutely rocks. They are the epitome of what I believe in as a digital marketer, and I have love to follow their progress (and try to emulate their success) throughout the years.
- Bob Burg: A networking superstar. I read Bob’s book “Endless Referrals” and it completely transformed my approach to networking and communicating. I rarely fail using his “always ask questions” technique.
