Why you do what you do?
Running this company is one of the great joys in my life. I'm not BS'n when I say that. I get to find and help high character businesses get their message out to a wider audience, allowing them to positively impact their local communities in a way they could never do on their own. I was given gifts from God that I use strategically to make our country, which I love so much, a better place.
What inspire you the most?
I am a 3rd generation military veteran. I can trace my lineage all the way back to the Revolutionary War. Understanding the sacrifice that my ancestors made in order to build this amazing world we live in today is humbling and inspiring. I want to be remembered the same way.
What you like the most about Digital Marketing?
The psychology behind how people make buying decisions is fascinating to me. Not even 2 decades ago, if you needed a product or service in your area, you had to look in a phone book or drive somewhere or ask a friend for a recommendation. Now, all those recommendations and the information we needed phone books for is right in your pocket. You are probably reading this right now on your own super computer. Many of the best small businesses haven't caught up to these changes and they need help from experts like us who care about their success as if it was our own company.
What is you story?
I am originally from Buffalo, NY, so I know a lot about football, cold weather, and chicken wings. I didn't know what I wanted to do in life, but I was good with computers, so I enlisted in the US Army after 9/11 to serve my country when I felt it needed me most. I learned a lot in those years which included spending over a year in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. When I got back, I worked... I worked REALLY hard. I became a golf teaching professional(amazing job, just could make any money doing it!), worked retail jobs all day and took night classes in Entrepreneurship and Marketing.
Long story short, my life path took me all over the greatest country God has even made. I've lived in New York City, Miami, Los Angeles, and a half dozen other cities. I have started businesses, run other people's businesses, and even served as an executive at 2 different INC Magazine Fastest Growing Companies.
All of that experience lead me to my core fundamental truths that guide my actions today.
- God has amazing plans for each and every one of us if we will just take the leap of faith when opportunities arise.
- We are all called to SERVE. The more people we serve and the quality of that service determines our success in life.
- Character is built by doing the right thing, even when it is the hardest option. Character = legacy, and I want to leave a legacy.
I can't wait to hear your story.
