HI, MY NAME IS TIFFANY.
I'm Tiffany Madison. I'm a relentlessly optimistic professional passionate about stories, creativity, writing, marketing, business and disruptive technology, digital strategies, and startups. I help small businesses and entrepreneurs launch and leverage their digital footprint.
I'm a Dallas, Texas native living in Nashville. I value grit, character, and taking calculated chances. I love meeting and connecting interesting people. I hate excuses. I work smart and hard. I practice the basics: authenticity, gratitude, dignity, integrity, perseverance, cooperation, compassion, and self-discipline.
The Internet allows us to pursue many passions simultaneously. Sometimes we end up with multiple "identities". Throughout my professional career I've held "9-to-5" roles as everything from an Executive Assistant to Project Manager to Vice President. These arenas have included technology recruiting, commercial real estate, small business consulting, non-profits, startup development, and digital companies.
I've been active online Since 2001. Through dozens of projects and opportunities, I've developed and explored my passions for writing, investigative journalism, community development, social media marketing, advocacy, political commentary, Internet freedom, disruptive technology, and more. The diversity of my interests varies widely and I greatly value colorful opinions and the uncensored exploration of ideas, some of which are featured here.
