This week's podcast episode I talk about how I come up with ideas for content on my business blog.
This is a topic I've talked about quite a bit in the past. It's a recurring topic... but only because it is one of the easiest ways I can think of to come up

Got to be the foil on this episode with +Ralph M. Rivera and +Carol Lynn Rivera. A must listen too.
Today we talk some serious GTD (Getting Things Done). It's a system taught by David Allen and it's worked wonders for us. We share the 5 steps (collect, clarify, organize, reflect, engage), some of our trip-ups and share what we've learned.

I wonder what my grills are thinking? Right about now they are probably wondering where I've been. Anyone have a caption?

Employment
  • Nuclear Chowder Marketing

    Digital marketing agency specializing in web design, search engine management, PPC, social media, conversions, analytics and training people/businesses. I am available to speak to large and small groups on marketing and running a successful business.
  • Offline Marketing Online
    Owner, 2010 - 2012
    I did the same things at this company I do at the new company. In fact, it's the same company. I only changed the name. When I began consulting to small businesses, I was still part owner of the martial arts school and gave very little consideration to a brand name. In 2012 I decided to take that step.

Story
Tagline
Helping small business owners and entrepreneurs crush it online
Introduction
I am the owner of a digital marketing agency called Nuclear Chowder Marketing. I help small businesses get more customers online. And not just any customer but the ones who will bring them the most profits with the least amount of effort.

I am the host of The Nuclear Chowder podcast as well as co-host of The Road To TED podcast. I love to help people achieve their goals through educating and speaking on all things marketing.

I have been a small business owner for over 10 years now. I ran a martial arts school for 7 years. When I came on as a partner, it was barely making rent. My role was to market the school and bring in more students.

I learned everything I could about marketing and selling. In a few short years the school had grown dramatically. Soon local business owners began coming to me for help. They wanted me to do for their business what I had done for mine.

I also sold my own training program online that taught other school owners around the country (actually a few overseas) to bring in more students. In addition to helping martial arts schools, I taught other people how to launch their own internet marketing business.

I was also an affiliate manager for a pretty big internet marketing company for a short stint. Got to really see how money is made online and how business can employ these same tactics to increase their visibility, authority and bottom line.

While still running the martial arts school, I started my own digital marketing agency. Today my company provides web design, SEO, social media, email marketing services, corporate training and some other services for clients. What makes the difference is my background in conversions (getting people to buy stuff).

I am always happy to help people. I believe there is no better way to build your business than helping people to build theirs.
