Surviving Summer Vacation With and Without Technology

Todays world is full of parents who work from home. For the past nine years, I've been one of them. When summer vacation arrives, it comes with new challenges. Our home offices are no longer the sacred, quiet spaces that we love and thrive in. While some build a writing shed or a tiny house to...

Where Bloggers Blog – My Office

Friend and photographer Karen Walrond was inspired to start a new project called Where Bloggers Blog. It is a site for bloggers to share where they do their writing. It even got picked up by Laughing Squid! Being a big fan of home offices, I instantly fell in love with it and shared this photo of mine. Originally,...

Plantronics Voyager Legend Review

Any piece of technology that makes getting work done easier is one that I'll love. For years I've bought and been impressed with products from Plantronics. Since my iPhone is also my office phone, I've always had a Bluetooth headset so that I could talk and easily use my computer at the same time. I've been...

Yahoo Decides Workshifting Is Bad

I've worked remotely for over six years. During that time I've been part of launching two successful companies, worked on numerous projects for clients of all sizes and have found lots of  success. Obviously I'm completely biased because the concept of workshifting is one that I firmly believe in and I write about quite often. As long...

My Instagram Decision

I love to experience life to the fullest and share those experiences with the world around me. It is part of my DNA as an explorer and storyteller. The tools of social media empower me to do this in ways I couldn't have imagined just a few short years ago. It wasn't easy for me to...

Once Again, The Travel Begins

I love to travel, but I hate to be away from my family. Being on stage in front of an audience rocks my world, but I love cuddling on the couch with my wife just as much. We've all heard about the two sides to every coin and that is where I find myself this morning...

What You’ll Find on my Desk

One of my #3Words for 2013 is minimize and yesterday I needed to clean my desk off to start that process. My desk is one of the most important locations in my house as I spend a lot of time there. I write, edit my photos, make videos, take meetings and pretty much run my...

FlightTrack Pro Review

I travel a lot. While I love touring the world and seeing new places, I hate the stress that comes with traveling so I'll do anything to cut as much of it out as possible. I've written about how I survive travel before and two of my favorite tools still to this day are TripIt and...

The Working Parent’s Guide to Workshifting

I get hired to create all sorts of different things. My only rule is that I've got to be excited about any project I accept. So when Citrix asked me if I'd be interested in writing an eBook for them about workshifting as a parent I jumped at the opportunity.

Stop Complaining and Work Harder at Conferences If You Want to Succeed

After any major conference like last weeks SXSW, you can be sure there will be plenty of posts complaining about how people didn't get what they hoped for out of it, the panels weren't as good as they had hoped for or why it is a stupid conference and they didn't go. It is...

On the Road: Burlington, VT

Last week I drove up to Burlington, Vermont for a Content Rules book tour stop and I thought it would be fun to document and share it with everyone. Of course, what I hadn't planned for was tornados might endanger my family while I was on the road which is exactly what happened. I let...

I Work Where I Am & When I Want

It is no secret that I'm a big fan of the concept of workshifting. This being the ability to work from anywhere I happen to be located at the moment. It means not being chained to a desk and lost in a cubical farm in some nondescript building in a downtown cityscape. This shot was...

Traveling Constants

I leave for CES tomorrow and then will spend more time on the road this month than I will at home with my lovely family. Being on the road may sound sexy to some, but it isn't all that it is cracked up to be. Especially this time of year when the weather causes flight...

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.


I’ve developed and taught courses for, CreativeLive and Treehouse. I’m also an Adjunct Professor of Marketing at Bentley University and hoping to do more teaching in the future.


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
