jasonfalls-timelineShawn Porat of the Young Entrepreneur Council has named Louisvillian Jason Falls to his list of “10 Business Leaders All Entrepreneurs Should Follow” on Forbes.com.

This is a list to be reckoned with for sure. Not only does it feature the real-life “Most Interesting Man in the World,” Virgin Group owner and billionaire Richard Branson, it also features Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and the founder of Zappos, Tony Hsieh.

Falls is the founder of Social Media Explorer and is the director of digital strategy over at the currently restructuring CafePress. He’s worked with big hitter brands including Jim Beam, Humana, AT&T and GE. Falls also has worked with and advised many local companies, including Insider Louisville.

Falls is an expert in social media marketing who has written books on the subject and travels the world advising companies and public speaking.

Porat writes:

Falls is one of the most well-respected experts on social media. He speaks and advises companies all around the world and has won numerous awards over the years. He has been at the center of social media since it became popular in the mid-2000s. His videos, tweets and other communications are extremely informative on business related topics.

But as you might expect from someone who named his books “No Bullshit Social Media” and “A Rebel’s Guide to Email Marketing,” his social media presence isn’t just informative.

To whit:

We’ve got some serious Achievers here in Louisville — and proud we are of all of them.
