  27. GUESS WHO I JUST GOT TO MEET!? James Spann is literally the reason my family is alive. My home was destroyed on April 8th 1998 due to a HUGE F-5 tornado. If it wasn't for @spannpix yelling at my parents from the TV they seriously would have died. The sirens in the Rock Creek community were not working and if it wasn't for my cousin, Anna, calling and telling my Dad to watch James Spann *specifically* my parents would have never known the tornado was coming. And to showcase how important this story is to me, my mom was 8 months pregnant with my baby brother. William is now 19 thanks to James Spann. I am SO GRATEFUL to this man for his dedication to weather and the communities of Alabama. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

  29. 3 elements of building brand loyalty and communication that make up a cross-functional, team-oriented effort:
1. Find your target customer and know where to find them. What makes your target customer different than any other customer? 
2. The experience you create must be quality and consistent. Create an extraordinary experience. 
3. The sustainable relationship that you create with your customers over time. Focus on the re-use customer, the one who comes back by choice.

  47. You know it's a GREAT day when you are in the same space with meteorologist, James Spann! He truly is a legend (don't debate me on this). He didn't have to roll up his sleeves, but I thoroughly enjoyed his session at @yallconnect on learning how to maximize social media by using the best practices to dominate your industry! Definitely one for the books! #yallconnect
