Hello Shareable fam, we’ve got a great new episode with the girl herself Neslihan Ozdemir.
Neslihan Ozdemir is the content creator and host of the show Girl On The Bike, a travel and lifestyle video series and Girl On The Mattress, a mattress and sleep products review site. Oh, and a real estate agent in New York. No biggie.
But before the bike and the mattress, she was an engineer living in a great apartment, but something was missing.
So she did some soul searching and made a change. She moved to New York, and left engineering behind for a new career in marketing with a focus on SEO and social media.
Full disclosure: we met Nesli through one of our clients: Nuvanna. They’re an online mattress retailer, she’s an online mattress reviewer. It was kismet, you could say. Or not.
We loved having her on the show. We got a chance to talk about growing up in Turkey, and how books brought her out of her country and exposed her to the world. And like many of our guests, we learn how technology changed Nesli’s life.

How Neslihan uses tech:
Nesli is an early adopter of technology, who considers herself pretty savvy.
Also, she’s a proud Android user, but please don’t stop listening. She redeems herself, we promise.
Nesli isn’t completely new to marketing. Even before she earned her engineering degree, she worked in sales and marketing. At her job, she was charged with the responsibility of selling their product, and she knew that she could do that through Google.
For Nesli, adaptation was a necessity.
What she wishes she’d learned earlier:
Don’t be afraid to follow your path.
One thing you should go do today:
Write a letter to your future self to help identify what you really want to do in life.
Apps in her Dock:
Phone, Messages, Chrome, Apps
One app she can’t live without:
Last Social Media left standing:
One book you should read:
The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss
To hypnotize people (for good of course…)
