Stop Listening to Knuckleheads
There are plenty of people out there ready to tell you that success can be achieved in 5 easy steps and 3 payments of $197.

Slapping someone else's system onto your dream isn't going to get you very far.

THIS IS NOT A HANG OUT ON AIR
This is a special event to help you simply be successful - and that's success on your terms, not some "expert's".

For only $12, you'll get:
--> 90 minutes of interactive discussion, including time to get the answers YOU need
--> At least 2 tips you can take action on immediately
--> The opportunity to meet other owners who are also finding their own way
--> An invitation to work closely with Phil and Stephanie to build your custom "Go Plan"

Register for this special event with +Stephanie Sims  and +Phil Bowyer by clicking the "ticket" button below.

Nobody is going to do it for you. It's not gonna come from those checklists your following you got from "experts".

So, it's wine cooler day.

I'll celebrate the once great beverage with a shot (or 4) of whiskey ;)
 
Happy Wine Cooler day everyone!

Come on I know you used to drink these back when you were young, so throw on some 80's music, get out the slip-n-slide, and go to the store to get a few 4 packs today and have some summer fun.

Only 27%? Really?
The thunder is rumbling, it's getting very dark here, and the radar is telling me that we could get slammed by a severe thunderstorm, so I thought I'd release the Weekly Howl early today just in case.

+Kate Bowyer and I take another trip to the 80's to explore wine coolers, and the old Bartles & Jaymes commercials. What, if anything, is there to learn from two old dudes sitting on a porch?  Watch and find out.

And, big thanks to everyone for supporting us and what we do. It really does mean the world to us.

Apple is Apple Today...
Not because Steve Jobs was some marketing god, it's because they understood how to speak the language of their customer.

Picking up where we left off last week, +Kenneth Manesse Sr., +Theresa Delgado and I help you craft your message so it not only resonates with your target market, but converts.
 
Get them in the right order and you’ll have great results!

Figuring out your offer’s features is fairly easy, but oftentimes entrepreneurs have a challenge extracting the benefits. Understanding features and benefits marketing is crucial, the benefits of your offer are WHY customers buy from you.

During this show learn how to craft a message that resonates with your target audience and more importantly create a message that they remember when they’re ready to buy.

+Michael C Svensson just sent me some brand spanking new early demos of the new +GrandRezerva music they're working on.

Holy shit, this stuff is awesome.  With each record, the band keeps it fresh while keeping their sound. You guys are going to like the new stuff, trust me.

I wish you could hear it, but for now, you can rock to one of my favorite songs, The Only One.

Do you have a message?
In just over an hour, +Kenneth Manesse Sr. +Theresa Delgado and I talk about what the knuckleheads say you should be doing vs. what you should actually be doing.
 
When creating this plan, it’s important to focus on your message and your audience. That’s it — just those two things.

Learn how to create message-based content with your audience in mind, and share that to your chosen social networks (the ones full of people who are in your target audience and your collaborators who will share your content).

During this show we will help you building relationships (with your audience and with vendors/collaborators), focusing on the needs of your customer (treating people with respect) and sell more!

The Devil You Know Bourbon
Anthrax and Knob Creek have released their special blend of bourbon and rye whiskeys, after aging 9 years.  It's 120 proof and only $59 for an autographed bottle.

Metal and Booze. Life is good.  \m/

We've got a half basset, half wiener dog that would look fantabulous in this.
 
Wiener Dog Minions Look Ridiculously Awesome In These DIY Costumes
Crusoe the celebrity dachshund has done it again, this time taking to YouTube wearing an adorable Minions costume. The costumes were hand made by owners and Ottawa, Canada, residents Ryan and Lauren Beauchesne. The other dog in the video is likely Oakley, Crusoe's half brother.

I Help Entrepreneurs Break Rules
Introduction

Hey, Hey. My name is Phil Bowyer and I’m in charge of Rule Breaking at BoozeHound. What is BoozeHound? Well, I'm so glad you asked.

BoozeHound is a four legged company that... OK, screw all this "corporate speak elevator speech" nonsense. Let's have some fun...

BoozeHound Productions - A production company that creates television shows, short films and radio shows. We also publish books (fiction and non-fiction).

BoozeHound OnTap - A place where your content goes to kick some major ass. We have worldwide partnerships with a variety of artists in many genres and mediums to give your video, podcast or blog post the spice it needs to showcase your professionalism and help you stand out (and dominate.. you do want to dominate the world don't you?)

BoozeHound BYOB - The "BYOB" has nothing to do with booze as you might expect. It means "Bring Your Own Body" because, well, this is our one-of-a-kind Apparel company. Really, when I say one-of-a-kind I mean it - you aren't going to find this stuff anywhere else (and if you do, remember we did it first).

BoozeHound Agency - You know that show with that dude who was the maestro of the advertising world. Yeah, that one. Well, that was based on me. OK, not really, but we're pretty serious about getting your thingy in front of the people who matter.

Some fun facts about me:

→ I’m from Chicago

→ I’m a metalhead \m/

→ My favorite beer is Bucer's Paradise (a Stout by a pub/coffeehouse called Bucer's in Moscow, Idaho)

→ My Bacon number is 1

→ I was a Firefighter/EMT for 10 years

→ My favorite food (at the moment) is Stuffed Pizza


But, let’s get real, you want to know why you should circle me, right?

→ Because I’m awesome. Ask others, they’ll tell you.

→ Because I say no to the status quo, and help you do the same.

→ Because I tell it like it is. No fluff, no bullshit.

→ Because I like to have FUN. Never underestimate the power of having fun.

→ Because I’m passionate about helping entrepreneurs and businesses reach their Destination.

→ Because I believe action is more important that inspiring a certain mindset.

→ Because you’re here anyway and you might as well hit that circle button.

→ Because I’m not on Facebook


My Breaking Rules Philosophy

If you’d rather watch than read, here’s a playlist that dives a bit deeper:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAJTgeUa7IE9lCa5u33qK0-rpAr7kNRFf

(it’ll take about an hour, the bulk of which is stories on how breaking rules and embracing creativity has helped three people commit to doing the work).

Breaking Rules isn’t about being anti-rules, or anti-law. Rules are good, but they have to be your own.

Breaking Rules is about saying no to the status quo and the social media and marketing experts that tell you their way is the only way to reach success. It isn’t.  The only way to success is the one that you create for yourself, the one that fits you like a glove and reaches deep inside of you and pulls out your strengths and uses them to their highest possibility.

It’s also about tapping into that inner kid. Have you ever noticed how a kid will go out of their way to jump in a puddle, or try something just because they’ve never experienced it before, or created their own fashion ensemble that no adult would be caught dead in? Yep, kids want to stand out and be themselves until we tell them they have to conform, and be like their peers.

By the time we reach adulthood, we are so used to playing by the rules, we are mesmerized by “creative people” who reach a level of success we only dream about. Guess what? You’re no different than them. You’re creative too, and you can be that kid who dresses like a ballerina, cowboy and fireman all at once and look awesome doing it.

There are thousands of experts telling you to be “authentic” while making you watch hour long HOA’s and trying to sell you programs that make you just like everyone else. Does that make any sense? Things like SEO crack me up because everybody is using the exact same tactics to get on page one.  It’s not about being on page one of Google search, it’s about being so damn extraordinary that people have conversations about you, which of course, translates to revenue (would you rather have 100,000 hits on your website, or $100,000 in your pocket?).

Take The First Step

Say hi. Really, I’d love to hear what you’re all about and learn what your passion is. I may look like a bad ass, but I’m a nice guy - really, don’t be shy.

OK, I didn’t want to use this, but I triple dog dare you to say hi.  Now, you have to do it. ;)

Take The Second Step

My second book, Coloring Outside The Lines guides you through the process of understanding who you are and creating habits and practices that are not only unique to you, but guide you to your Destination.  

Coloring Outside The Lines is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kobo Books.Click the link below to grab your copy.

Bragging rights
I played a firefighter and a good samaritan in a movie called "After The Shock" (I was also the technical adviser). My wife Kate and I wrote, directed, casted and filmed a short film called "Crossed" (http://crossed.phibble.com). Yeah, I know, I'm cool, but I'm humble :)
Education
  • School is about following rules.
    It's about conforming. It's about blending in.
    School's value comes not from the academics, but from the relationships and connections you make while there. Has your professor actually run a successful business? What about the Dean of your business school? Why did he/she leave their successful business?
