Kevin interviews entrepreneurs to help other business owners grow and develop their businesses.

Episodes

I am very happy to bring someone on the show that I met a few years ago.  We hadn’t seen each other in a few years though.  Her name is Ronda Taylor and she is a woman who is doing great things and is going through some brand new life experiences.  She has a company that she has been running for over 20 years.  The name of her company is HeartWork Publishing.  She is an award winning book designer and publisher.  One of her first big named clients was Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen for their book Chicken Soup for the Soul

About Ronda…

 

She is also a TEDx speaker at the Fremont East Women where she shared the stage with one of our former interviewee, Christina Aldan.

 

However, she has embarked on another journey.  With so many years as a publisher she hasn’t yet written her own book.  She is now on a new quest to write her own book.  Little did she know that this journey would lead into the creation of a new company and a way to learn from other people.

 

In November 2016 she sold her home and just about everything she owned in Las Vegas, NV.  She bought a one-way ticket to Costa Rica and this began an unprecedented journey across South America that ended up lasting 9 months. 

 

Ronda started to interview women business owners all across South America.  This included countries like Costa Rica, Columbia, Nicaragua, Panama, and so many others.  These business owners included all levels of business.  Some of these women owned restaurants, some owned stores, and some simply bought and resold items on the streets.  All of them were making it work. 

 

Her new book which is still being written will explore these women entrepreneurs.  Many times she needed the help of interpreters as she doesn’t speak much Spanish and they don’t speak English.  She simply traveled with 5 pairs of clothes, her computer, power banks, and her cell phone. 

 

She didn’t spend more than 3 weeks in any one place and many times she was living outside in her hammock that she had with her.  There is so much to learn when you are travelling this way.  No souvenirs were bought because she would have to lug it around with her for months.  The only real souvenirs she had were photos from her camera and the memories and stories she collected along the way.

 

Mind you she was also still doing her book designs and publishing while on this trek.  Even though in many cases the Wi-Fi was spotty or even non-existence she had to learn how to run a business on the road.  As she calls it she was a Digital Nomad.  

 

HeartWork Travels

 

Thus, her second company was born on this trek.  It is called HeartWork Travels.  You can see her adventures on her Instagram account at https://www.instagram.com/heartworktravels/

 

As of mid-February 2018 she is flying back to Columbia with a one way ticket to begin the second leg of her journey.

 

Contact Ronda

You can contact Ronda, even while she is on the road.  Just give her a little time to respond as you never know that she could be in the middle of a jungle with no reception.

Diane Forster and I go a few years back.  I have always looked up to her as a mentor and someone I can always learn from.  Since meeting her I always looked at her as being one or two steps ahead of me.  She launched her book I Have Today about two months before I launched my book.  And there are a few other things she has done before me.

Today I have the chance to interview a woman who is currently operating a business that actively exists in two countries.  You talk about opening up another business in a different city or even a different state would be challenging.  Imagine doing this in a different country.  However that is exactly what Adriana Bautista did. 

 

About Adriana

Adriana started a business primarily in Mexico City in 1999.  She was helping people with their local and national taxes. 

 

Her company is called LPP, Inc. and she is an International Tax Consultant.  She loves taxes and analyzing numbers so much she even get a PhD in it.

 

In 2007 she had the idea of coming to the US to open a company doing taxes here.  This idea just sat there as an idea for a few years.   She was already doing US taxes for Mexican citizens that had business also in the US.  Or it was for US citizens living in Mexico.

 

It wasn’t until 2010 after a friend had her come to the US and basically tricked her into starting to officially doing business here in order to show her she did have the confidence and ability to work here, too.

 

And Mexican tax laws can vary differently than it does in the US.

 

She is also the co-author of the Spanish version of the book Trophy Effect w/ Michael Nitti.

 

I think you will be intrigued by this woman’s story and the fact that she can do business in two different countries. 

 

If you are on the fence on getting started then this woman’s story may help you with that vital push go get started now.

 

She also has a passion in becoming a motivational speaker to help Latin women of abuse to overcome those tragic moments.

 

Go ahead and take a listen.

 

Contact Adriana

You can find Adriana online at www.lppinc.org

 

Her website is available in both English and Spanish.

I am excited to bring my first videographer to the show.  Her name is Leandra Doemer.

 

This is a woman with many talents and can help you look great for your own video, teaser videos, and other video or audio needs.  She can put in custom audio to your work as well as help make you look great.

 

She went to school to study film, editing, and multi-media recording.

 

Her company …

The name of her company is Music and Media.  She does promotional videos and branding videos for your business.  She aspires to do remixing for film in the near future.  Thus, you have one dedicated woman here who really wants to help out her clients.

 

In a promotional video or teaser video generally these are around 30 seconds to 2 minutes in length and can be live action, B roll, or stock footage with voiceover types.  It can feature the client or a representative of the client or even paid professional actors.  The combinations and choices are unlimited.

 

Bot myself and Leandra know and understand the need of video for your business.  If you don’t have video then you are not going to attract customers.  Your website needs at least one video introducing you to the world.

 

If you are looking to attract clients via a landing page or even through social media posts then video is essential in getting your message across in this day and age.

 

Listen to today’s show where Leandra will give you some great tips and knowledge of video in your business and brand.

On today’s show I have a woman who got her psychology degree from Vanderbilt.  She is now a coach and consultant for entrepreneurs.  Her name is Allison Taylor and she resides in Denver, CO. 

 

She started as a single mom of two boys.  She wanted to be a big part of their lives and so she figured out a way that she could run a business from home and still be able to take them to school and even see them perform in school plays. 

 

She now has a company called Business Seminars.  She helps entrepreneurs through many different training programs.

 

She has a passion about helping entrepreneurs.  One of the main things that we covered is how entrepreneurs often underprice their products or services.   I have spoken with many people and that is one of their biggest obstacles when getting started. 

 

One tip she talks about is the asking for a referral before they have actually used the product.  Wow, what a concept.

 

Listen to today’s show to learn more about how you can start or scale your own personal business.

 

Learn from her about what about your program can be referred by word of mouth to other people.  It is all about those referable items that represents you or your brand.  She is a Referral Marketing expert and has a lot to share with you today.

 

You can also visit her online at www.allisontaylor.net

Meet Josh Haynam and Interact

Today I am excited to bring another business owner to the show.  His name is Josh Haynam and he is the founder and CEO of Interact.  This company is all about building online quizzes for your social media marketing campaigns.

 As an Interact Quiz Builder he has some very unique experiences about creating a new business where nobody else had anything that was comparable.  A true pioneer at creating something new and innovative.

 

 

 

What he does …

He creates personality quizzes that are specific to a company’s needs in order to attract different types of clients.  One benefit is that it has an email capture component built in so that the company can reach out to the potential client for future product offerings.

 If you have seen any of those quizzes on Facebook like what kind of wine are you or what kind of superhero are you then you have seen his type of work.

 His clients can range from small startup companies that may have 200 people take their quiz in a year and can level up to Fortune 500 companies that may have a million hits over one 8 hour period.  They typically target smaller companies just because there are a lot more of them.

 

Starting Out

He says his company started by accident yet on purpose.  He shares his growing pains of just starting out and then the building of the business in this new and unique market.  Where he basically had no competition and thus had to create a demand for his services. 

 If you have an unique idea on starting a business then this show is a must listen to episode.

Today I have an amazing guest on our show.  His name is Marlo Anderson.  He is also known at The Guru of Geek.

 

He has his own talk radio show called The Tech Ranch which he has been broadcasting for 6 years. 

 

Five years ago he started doing something that was unrelated to what he was doing.  One day he started posting, for free and at no means of creating additional income, the national holiday for each day of the year.  This all started with National Popcorn Day due to the fact that he is a big fan of popcorn.  He would spend hours researching and verifying he national holiday for each day of the week.  Usually only one or two days in advance. 

 

This went on for over two years.  Yet with only his determination and vigilance this grew into an international recognized brand.  And thus began National Day Calendar.  Over the years this became a huge sensation tracking hundreds of thousands of viewers every day.

 

 

Now, just a few years later he actually is launching an actual calendar showing every day of the year which national holiday is celebrated with that day.

 

He is also in the process of launching two other startups.

 

One deals with Augmented Reality.  This is a new technology that could make your history tour experiences to an entirely new level.  Imagine holding up your phone at a historic location and you can hear and see a person tell you about the location you are at.

 

You can find him on Twitter @GuruofGeek or on Facebook www.facebook.com/guruofgeek

 

Listen to today’s show to learn about this amazing feat and so much more…
