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...
Prince died and I'm positive he had more to create and do in his life. Death is coming for all of us and none of us know when we'll take our final breaths and that is why I hit record today so that you could listen to Managing the Gray #147. Links from the show. 30...
Life without a phone got me pondering about our love of technology. This morning getting a near real time update from my sister who is camping with my daughter and parents in Maine got me thinking even more. Combine all that with my buddy Christine calling me out for not doing a podcast in so long...
With Indiana being the latest state to decide discrimination is ok, my mind has been running. After reading Tim Cook's great op-ed in the Washington Post, I felt I needed to share my thoughts. I knew I'd have a hard time typing the proper words, so I hit record on my microphone instead so share my...
Long time listeners know that when I hit record on my microphone you never know what might come out of my mouth. In the first ten seconds of this episode I once again laughed at myself as words came out of my mouth and in my mind I was already thinking, "Did you really...
SO much has been going on that I've been neglecting my podcast, so I wanted to hit record and share an update with my listeners on all that has been going on in my world. Listen to Episode 142 of Managing the Gray and you'll hear more about Never Enough Days, my GORUCK Light and...
The shower was extra hot and the muse was screaming. As soon as I got done I ran downstairs to record this. No idea how I got so wired on a Monday morning. Be sure to watch Transform and An Invocation for Beginnings that I mentioned on the show.
Looks like the gates have begun to open on Ello and here comes the rush of new users who want to judge before using. Listen to my thoughts on Episode 140 of Managing the Gray. Show Notes: Neil Bearse Find me on Ello Violet Blue (not safe for work) John Green's Keynote at Connections 2014 Ze Frank Can't wait to hear what this...
I watched a video from Tara Hunt this morning and instantly had to turn on the microphone and record Episode 138 of Managing the Gray. I've been thinking a lot about how we all put on a layer of social media makeup before we post anything online and it is messing up the minds and culture...
Returning from three weeks vacation with the family, I had several packages waiting for me and one of them was the new RODE NT-USB microphone so of course I had to fire it up and record a new episode of Managing the Gray.

Once again I found myself with a major decision. One that would have ripple effects over the rest of my life. A familiar feeling had arrived that I hadn't felt in a few years and had hoped I'd never feel again. Knowing myself as well as I do, I knew what had to be done even...
Looking around, the world frustrates me. The fact that we have a State that wants to discriminate and every day I see a new company get more money than they need while other organizations are struggling to survive angers me. With all that and more going on, how is it possible to keep my chin up...
Travel is something that more people need to do. While it doesn't have to always be a to a far off country, the key is to visit places you've never been before.
Isn't there a rumor going around that things slow down in December? I swear I've heard that before, but I don't believe it for one minute. *grin* I just got home from having lunch with Christine Koh and Audrey McClelland. We've been trying to get together since summer, but we are all so busy it...
I had one major goal to get done before the end of the year and that was to dig myself out of the weeds of content creation and get it all out there for you to consume. If you don't know, my least favorite part of creating content is the post production piece. This is...

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…
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.
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.
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. Over the years of his career he has worked with a variety of clients including Nike, HBO, American Eagle Outfitters, ONE, Verizon FiOS and The Coca-Cola Company.
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. C.C. has taught classes for Lynda.com, CreativeLive and now as an adjunct professor at Bentley University (where he also graduated from).
C.C. is an advocate who speaks about building passionate communities and the strategic values of content-based marketing. He is a Samsung Imagelogger, the original ONE Dad and a UN Foundation Social Good Fellow. As a storyteller for hire, his work has appeared on the pages of Rolling Stone and The Wall Street Journal.
C.C. serves as the Chairman of the Board at Wediko and serves on the board of The Hockey Foundation. He happily lives in the woods outside of Boston with his loving family. Find out more at CC-Chapman.com
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:
