Chris Guzman and Marc Boulos co-founded a social media agency called Rightsyde Media. Rightsyde is a social media focused agency that helps different businesses tell their stories and drive their business results through social media. The Rightsyde team works with startups, small businesses, franchise corp teams, and national brands. These founders also started a Startup Competition in Miami called the Start-up Series and have worked with Gerard Adams (Elite Daily), Al Nelson (EZ VIP – Shark Tank), and Walker Williams (Teespring.com) to name a few.
