The Future of Facebook with Michael McQueen | Episode 110

What’s coming up next in the world of Facebook? Michael McQueen is an award winning Speaker and Author. With 18 years in the Writing and Researching industry, Michael takes us through the Metaverse and points out key technology trends that will affect the Direct Selling industry. 

Can you believe it all started when Michael was 8?! After attending a Direct Selling conference with his parents, Michael was transfixed with the speaker and knew it was what he was going to do. We are so thankful he did as he now shares his insight with us and many others in the industry.

In this episode you’ll hear it all – from influence scalability, to future generations and new technology. With a young boy of his own Michael is very familiar with the effects of lockdown on Gen Alpha and Gen Z, providing invaluable advice to fellow parents as they journey this too. 

Make sure to take notes, there’s so many golden nuggets in this one!
