Being a Duck Ain’t Easy, But It Keeps Me Sane

In Amazing Things Will Happen, I talked about the idea of being a duck. The concept is simple enough. Ducks don't care about the rain. They keep swimming around, doing duck things. They let the rain wash off of them because they realize there is nothing they can do about it directly so they focus on...

Outside, Victories and Sharpen – My Three Words For 2014

The final morning of 2013 finds me bearded, battling a horrible cold and full of reflection. I'm about to head out for a week in Las Vegas as I speak at NMX and attend CES. As described in Amazing Things Will Happen, I've been going through my three word exercise to focus myself for the...

Amazing Things Will Happen on Kobo in Conversation

Late last year Kobo had me up to their offices to record an episode of Kobo in Conversation. This video series shares chats with authors from a variety of genres. They made special cookies to celebrate my book and my good friend Mitch Joel conducted the interview. Enjoy.

Finding Focus in a Forest of Possibilities

Spring has begun to arrive in New England and the dark cobwebs of winter will begin to be shook out of the gray matter with each breeze of fresh air I feel on my face. The woods that hug our property are currently a tangle of brush and trees that soon will be covered in...

A Stranger’s Smile

Remember when we were growing up and our parents told us to never talk to strangers? While the sentiment makes sense, you'd never make a new friend if you listened to it all the time.

Amazing Detroit Video

Earlier this week, I kicked off the Amazing Things Will Happen book tour in Ann Arbor and Detroit, Michigan. Shawn Lee took beautiful photos at the MotorCity Casino event and put together this great highlight video.

Menu, Build and Minimize in 2013

A new year has dawned and none of us know what 2013 holds. As I encouraged everyone to do in Amazing Things Will Happen, I've been going through the three word exercise to focus myself for the new year. For some reason it was harder than usual for me. Might be due to the fact that...

Making a Living With Maggie Interview

While some authors might not like the marketing phase of a book release, I love it. Last week, I had the pleasure of being the guest on Making a Living With Maggie on SiriusXM. The show is part of the Martha Stewart Living Radio channel, so I was obviously very excited about doing it. It was a great...

Preparing For The End

Once again we are approaching the end. While some believe forever, I'm a bit more practical than that and have bought my 2013 calendar and await to hang it on my wall. It is a time to finish up those goals you set for 2012, but perhaps more importantly it is time to start actively planning...

When It Becomes Real

I find it rather comical that in today's world where I can create anything I want and sell it to the world, I still hold off on celebrating the launch of a new book until I find it in a traditional book store.

My Dangerous Books

In the past I've discussed some of the books that have changed my world. I like to call them "dangerous" because if you read them there is a high probability that they may spark something in you. Depending on what is going on in your life that could be dangerous and thus my description. Since...

Developing a Reputation

When we were younger, our parents would always warn us about developing a reputation. This was said as if the only reputation one could develop was a bad one. I discuss in Amazing Things Will Happen that everyone should be concerned about their reputation, but why not strive to insure that it is a reputation for...

The Great 500 Book Keynote

Did you know that I have a new book coming out before the end of the year called Amazing Things Will Happen? If you didn't, you do now and I've got a crazy idea that I'd like to run by you in the hopes that one of you likes it enough to make it happen.

Sketch of C.C. Chapman by Hey Instigator!There are many aspects OF who I am and what I do. Putting together THIS PAGE is one of my least favorite things to write because talking about myself is not my idea of a fun time.

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 headshots can be found below.

Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…


I’m constantly writing and always working on my next book. You may have read some of my published works including Amazing Things Will HappenContent Rules or 101 Steps to Making Video Like a Pro.

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 Canon 80D, an iPhone 7+ and a Chroma 4k Drone.

My photos can be found on Instagram and Flickr.

Keynote Speaker

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.

Advocate & Volunteer

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.

I’m currently the President of the Board at Wediko, a member of the ONE Girls & Women Advisory Board, serve on the board of The Hockey Foundation and recently joined the No Kid Hungry Social Council.


Helping others learn and inspiring them to achieve their goals is the most fulfilling thing I do. As a Visting Instructor of Business and Management at Wheaton College and as an Adjunct Professor of Marketing and Communications at Bentley University I get to do this with the next generation. I’ve also developed and taught courses for LinkedIn, CreativeLive, and Treehouse.


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.

Fun Bio

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:

9 C Medway Road #117
Milford, MA

Current relationships include:

  • Verizon FiOS provides me with service in exchange for a monthly post on technology of my choosing
