Hi, I'm .

Let’s have some fun while we get to know each other!

Remember Choose Your Own Adventure books? When I was a kid, I was such a superfan of those things! In an homage to that series (which originally sold more than 250 million copies across 184 volumes, by the way!) I’ve structured this page in a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure fashion. 

No matter which option you choose (and feel free to pick more than one!), the story ends the same way: You learn more about me, and we’re one step closer to being old friends!

If videos are your thing, you’ll find a short video below.

Prefer a more traditional, written introduction? Cool — I’ve got you covered.

Or, if you’re adventurous enough to choose Door #3, you’ll find fun pictures and stories to get you up to speed on the highlights.

If videos are your thing, you’ll find a short bio video below.

Prefer a more traditional, written introduction? Cool — I’ve got you covered with long and short versions.

Or, if you’re adventurous enough to choose Door #3, you’ll find fun pictures and stories to get you up to speed on the highlights.

Prefer to kick it really old school and get to know each other over the phone? Perfect! Give me a call, or send me a note… just be prepared to talk about your favorite childhood book series! Bonus points if you can hold your own in a convo about Goosebumps, The Baby-Sitters Club, or anything by HRH Judy Blume.

just the highlights

I grew up in the tiny town of Roland, Oklahoma.

I got my first taste of public speaking at my preschool graduation… that’s all it took to get me hooked!

From an early age, I loved putting my superfandom on display: from Duck Tales to Dr Pepper, if I loved a brand, I wasn’t afraid to rep it!

I was obsessed with space and spent my entire fourth-grade year trying to teach myself Russian so I could communicate with the Cosmonauts when I made it to the International Space Station.

Brittany Hodak Bumblebee - Brittany Hodak

When Russian (and advanced math and science!) turned out to be less exciting than I hoped, 16-year-old me turned my attention to my other love — music — and started working as a radio station mascot.

That led to an unbelievable gig writing about my favorite bands for the station’s website… including all the free concert tickets and backstage passes I could dream of!

Getting paid to (literally!) hang out with rockstars spoiled any chance of me getting a real job, so I worked for a ton of entertainment companies in college. I also found time to set a Guinness World Record with my friends!

After graduation, I moved to New York City to work at a record company. There, and at a subsequent high-profile job in entertainment marketing, I dove deeper into my obsession with studying and understanding fandoms of all sizes and specialties.

In 2011, I launched my first company, ZinePak, which was centered around creating products and experiences for superfans.

Soon, we were partnering with some of the biggest brands and celebrities on the planet. We were even invited to appear on Shark Tank, which was a blast and led to lots of speaking and consulting requests.

In 2016, my husband, Jeff, and I relocated to Nashville, TN, to start our family. The speaking side of my business continued to grow…

…and so, in 2018, I made the decision to sell the majority of my equity in my company and focus on speaking and writing full time!

Now, I’m lucky enough to travel around the world (sometimes via planes and sometimes via Zoom!) to work with businesses and brands of all sizes to help them create superfans of their own.

And you know what’s the best part? Every time I’m onstage or on camera, I still get the same tinge of excitement I felt leading my pre-K commencement! There’s nothing I’d rather be doing than sharing my SUPERFANS System with fellow sales and marketing enthusiasts.
