Broc Romanek is the Founder & Editor of ZippyPoint. Well, he’s the entire staff. But Broc does rely on a team of people for a host of tasks that keep this rocketship moving. So please pay-what-you-can (when you post all your content for free, you need to remind folks to donate). Broc can be reached through firstname.lastname@example.org or via LinkedIn.
If Broc had to describe himself, the positive traits that characterize him best would be pragmatic, innovative, decisive, analytical & empathetic. Oh yes, and fun.
As for negative traits, it could be that he cares too much. I know that sounds self-serving, but that can lead to a lack of ability to adequately delegate. And a lack of ability to get sufficient sleep. There are other negative traits to dwell on – but as his wife can attest, he’s spent a lot of time ironing those out over the years. Anyway, who lists their deficiencies in a bio? Now for the more formal bio…
Broc also serves as Editor of RealGoodFresh.com, a mindfulness & wellness site on which he shares practice tips to make you feel good, as well as his own personal journey in these areas. He also serves as the Editor for VoiceReallyMatters.com, a site that covers “all things voice” in a simple, easy-to-read style – providing practical guidance about how you can leverage voice assistants, hearables, wearables & other voice devices to save time and make your life easier.
