I was having a conversation with Seth Godin recently about writing and among all the nuggets he said, "The cost of what we do is we have to show up." We were discussing his daily blog writing and my wonderment at how he does it. It stuck with me like a thorn. Nagging at me to face...
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending a MassMutual Foundation #FutureSmart launch event at the Mildred Avenue Middle School in Mattapan, MA As a father of two, I wish that my children had been taught about personal finances, money and planning for their futures in school. Outside of the stale stock market games that...
In case you missed it, last night there as a Presidential Debate. Of course, this morning everyone is shouting about their candidate of choice. Hard to scroll through any site without someone shouting about how much they hate one person and love the other. I tried balancing it out by sharing a photo of Jaz because...
"What if we swing by Baypath and see what they have for puppies?" Laura asking me this while out running errands is how the story of Jaz began. I grew up with a black lab named Popeye. You know the story of Roxie. Dogs will always be a part of my life and Labrador Retrievers will always...
Life is extremely short. While days will drag on and never seem to end. Others fly by and you barely got a chance to enjoy them. We've all heard the jokes about getting older, getting crabbier and yelling, "Get Off My Lawn!" more than once. Age is a relative thing of course, but over the last few...
My inbox is no stranger to vague requests for my services. When an email arrived asking if I was available to socially cover a video shoot with a well known New England professional football player to be named later, I didn’t think twice about it. Attending events to create and share content is something I get...
For all the good that social media has brought to our tables, there is no question that it has also served us seven days in the sun bowls of potato salad as well. Scroll through your network of choice on any day and you'll find a stew of anger, hate and outrage. This morning I tweeted: As...
Every photographer knows the feeling. The slice of a moment when the light is perfect. Shadows dance on your subject as if you painted them on yourself. You point, press the button and hear the familiar sound of your shutter. You don't even need to look. You know you got it. THE shot is not always the best...
As a photographer, I love to be out shooting with my cameras. When on assignment, the stress factor always goes up a bit. Will I get the shot I need? Will the talent work with me? What if something goes wrong? All of those are natural and part of the photography business. It is one thing to...
The majority of the weekend was spent feet up in the sun room reading The Accidental Life: An Editor's Notes on Writing and Writers on my kindle. The stories and style hit home and fuel my desire to write more and fear less. There were pork chops on the grill and fresh corn beside them. Cold...

When asked what I do my current answer is, “I create, teach and motivate people to do more good in the world.”
Of course, that doesn’t cover all that I work on professionally and personally, so that is why I created this page.
Official bios and head shots can be found below.
Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…
With over twenty years of marketing, online media and community building experience I have the skills and experience to help your organization no matter the size. Previous clients have included The Coca-Cola Company, American Eagle Outfitters and HBO.
I focus on social good/impact marketing, content marketing and brand strategy. My favorite clients are NGOs, nonprofits or brands looking to make a difference in the world.
Feel free to double check my credentials on LinkedIn.
Freelance writing or citizen reporting assignments excite me.
If I had to choose a style, I’d say my photos are a mix of documentary, travel and lifestyle photography. While I may not enjoy taking head shots, I love to shoot faces. I rarely go anywhere without a camera in my hand and I’ve been fortunate to see my photos on the pages of Rolling Stone and The Wall Street Journal.
I’m currently shooting with a Samsung NX1 and a Chroma 4k Drone.
I’m happiest when on stage educating and inspiring an audience of any size, anywhere in the world.
I have spoken at everything from large international events, corporate retreats and at special gatherings of unique individuals. If you need someone who will inspire, educate and entertain your audience I’d love to chat.
I believe in using my skills, time and voice to champion causes that are important to me. I’m especially interested in anything military, dogs or children focused.
On top of all that I’m a proud life long New Englander who was born and raised in New Hampshire, but now resides outside of Boston.
I married my high school sweetheart, have two amazing kids and love being a dad.
I’ve been online since 1989, began blogging in 2002 and podcasting in 2004.
Previous endeavors I created include Accident Hash, Passion Hit TV, Digital Dads and The Advance Guard.
Tattoos, travel and the outdoors turn me on. There are fewer things more perfect than a well done cocktail, a delicious meal or live art of any sort. I love my GORUCK, Field Notes and am a proud Misfit.
To understand me is to understand that I try to live a purposeful life every day that is full of adventure, love and making the world around me a better place for all.
C.C. Chapman describes himself as a New England raised storyteller, explorer and humanitarian. Others have described him as a thought leader in the online marketing space, a grounded futurist and one the nicest guy on the Internet.

He is the co-author of the International bestseller Content Rules and is also the author of Amazing Things Will Happen. He travels the world speaking in front of audiences to do more in the world and how to understand content marketing better.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more multi-faceted or enthusiastic creative/strategic partner in the marketing and content creation fields. This greatly hails from C.C.’s unstoppable combination of marketing experience and savvy (which a great many professionals claim to have), and incalculably valuable “on the ground” knowledge and insight as an influential content creator himself (which a great many professionals do not). The result is a best-of-both-worlds mashup of marketing expertise.
C.C. Chapman sports the pro cred to be a talker (working closely with such clients as American Eagle Outfitters, Coca-Cola, HBO and Warner Bros.), and the passion and gumption to be a doer (creating content for the emerging Online Dad market, marketing professionals, music fans and more). He’s helped create, manage and execute ambitious online and offline marketing campaigns for startups and multinationals — and has the invaluable good sense to know which outreach strategies work with audiences, and which ones fall flat.
He authoritatively speaks your language. He speaks your CMO’s language. Most important, he’s fluent in your market’s language. It’s a killer double-chocolate-and-peanut-butter combination. Contact C.C. to learn how he can help your organization achieve its business goals. There’s even more to know about C.C. Chapman, if you want to read it — and you should. C.C.’s skills are an embarrassment of riches.
I’m involved with a lot of organizations and clients. I believe in being completely transparent and open about everything I’m working on. I’ll do my best to keep this updated and of course will clearly disclose relationships in any post that require them.
I am open to being pitched and invited on press trips.
Companies do send me items in the hopes that I will review it or share with my community. If you send me something it does not guarantee a review.
With that in mind, my mailing address is:
