Dave Wakeman's The Business of Fun Podcast

Jun 7, 2018

Today's guest is Lauren Teague...

Lauren Teague is a digital strategist who puts social back into social media. She has worked with a range of media startups, non profits, professional sports leagues, teams, and athletes. She held the first social media position at the PGA TOUR and spent seven seasons covering live golf in social media. Now she’s part of Convince & Convert consulting, a respected group of advisors led by Jay Baer who help the world’s most interesting brands improve their social and content marketing efforts. 

She is likely the only strategist anywhere with the former #1 golfer Jason Day, P.F Chang's, Cisco and Cambia Health Solutions on her roster. 

If you can't find Lauren in the office, first look on the golf course. She's working to reclaim her single-digit handicap before one of her three #TinyTeagues beats her to it, and documents the journey at

In this wide-ranging conversation, we discuss a lot. 

Some of the stuff we hit on:

* The vibrancy of golf.

* Lauren's love of the Dallas Stars and why it is important to use social media to tell stories, even when you aren't successful.

* Why engagement on social media isn't just a vanity thing. 

And, this is just scratching the surface.
