The Professional Molly Ebert
Soon after graduating from Elon University with a degree in Business Administration, Molly was drawn to Mississippi’s Gulf Coast to help with rebuilding efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. She discovered her skills as an electrician and quickly earned her license and the status of The Electrician in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.
After two years, two college friends convinced her to join their adventure and come to Colorado. Molly found work with an electrical contracting company in the Denver area, and when times were slow, she dropped by the office to work on the company’s social media presence.
Molly had always wanted to run her own company, but she was pretty sure it wouldn’t be in the electrical contracting industry. “Facebook started when I was in college, and I was an early adopter,” Molly points out. “I remember saying to my friends back then, ‘I wish I could get paid for Facebooking.’” She got her wish and formed her company, Social Roadmap in 2012!
Molly oversees a growing number of key accounts at SME, maintaining close contact with clients and managing her content development team. She also makes it a point to stay on top of social media trends and platform enhancements so she can bring these new opportunities to her clients.
The Essential Molly Ebert
Molly and her husband Jesse live in Fraser, Colorado (about 90 minutes west of Denver), close to the outdoor activities they love—things like skiing, hiking, and snowshoeing.
While her immediate family is in Florida, Molly relishes the blurred lines between family and friends. “I’ve been blessed with a wonderful Family of Choice. Good friends have become like family and my family members have also become good friends.”
Collaborating and helping others is important to Molly. “Luke has pulled together an incredible team of people, many of whom on paper could be competitors. But he’s taught me an important lesson about collaboration: We can all learn from and teach each other.”
Molly embraces the Louisiana French term “Lagniappe,” which means “a little something extra. “I do my best to apply that to what I offer people—not just my Family of Choice, colleagues, and clients, but also anyone else I encounter.
