Most people don't like talking about themselves...and I would include myself in that majority. But every once in awhile we are forced into action. Like when your scheduled interviewee doesn't show up. Good news is, this is a show about entrepreneurs and I'm one of those. I also know a lot of those...so it worked out ok. During the show I revealed advice that I received over the years that helped me along the way.
If you swing the bat, you're dangerous! Joe Nuxhall used to say this when a pitcher was lucky enough to make contact at the plate once in a great while. It's true. You have to swing...to crush the baseball. But wouldn't you rather crush it more often? Even better...EVERY time? Our guest on todays show is Matthew Marvin, owner of MGM Consulting and author of "Nailed it" 10 Keys to Crushing the Interview. He'll talk about strategies and technics that will help you CRUSH your next interview and land you the job you most desire!
A wise man once said...If you've got a bucket of tools, you can make a living. 3 years ago our guest, Matt Ramsey, took his bucket of tools and launched his concrete company...Ram Development. The wise man was Matt's father, who himself was a concrete contractor. Unfortunately Matt's father passed away last year. But thanks to Matt his legacy and his bucket of tools lives on!
What do dog food, exploiding duck heads, loose stools, sales management and lawn ornaments made of cow manure all have in common? They are all things my cousin talked about on this episode of American Dreamers. Dave Dourson, owner of Kinetic Performance Dog Food talks about how he and his partner turned an idea into a successful business. I also picked his brain about his sales managment background...and found out that if you don't know your customer, you might end up with 83,000 headless ducks!
Many of us made at least one clay vase/bowl/pot/ashtray in our early life. But only a few of us were so inspired by our efforts, that we made it our life's work. Such is the case for well over 100 crafters, artists and makers who's work will be on display this Saturday at Crafty Supermarket, held this year at the University of Cincinnati Recreation Center. My guest on the show is Grace Dobush, co-organizer of the event. We'll talk about the logistics of putting on such an event, while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
Next to doing the right thing, the most important thing is to let people know you are doing the right thing. John D Rockefeller said this, many years ago. My guest would probably agree. He is Rodger Roeser, CEO of The Eisen Agency. He said a lot of right things about public relations, marketing, politics, baseball and rock and roll. I'm just letting you know about it.
You've got brains in your head, you've got feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. Dr. Seuss was correct. But what if you choose the wrong direction? Alan Lindeman, of Maximizing Results, LLC is our guest. His company works with business owners and individuals that are ready to "take the walk" but may not see the most efficient path.
When it comes to websites, less is more. Gone are the days of jam packing your website with as many key words as you possibly can. If you didn't know that, then you are behind the times. No worries, you're in good company...with me! Mark Dare, of I-MKTG.com joins me to talk about websites, google ads...and why I should probably hire a professional to update my website.
