My New Podcast for Curious Marketers

My New Podcast for Curious Marketers

I am super amped up this week because yesterday, I launched my very first audio show, The Marketing Starter Podcast, with the goal of sharing some tangible tips and career hacks with marketers around the marketing world. 

I actually started recording back in March with the idea of getting a majority of the first season produced before the show even aired – I read that on launch day that one should have three episodes ready to go for new listeners (one of the many tips I gleaned from pro podcasters).

So this week, that is what you will find… The first three episodes of Season One, featuring Beth Carr, Founder of Fortified Branding, social media king, Scott Eddy, and Rebecca Biestman, CMO at Reputation. All available wherever you get your podcasts, at, and of course, on my website.

From there, I will be publishing two new episodes each month with the hopes of expanding to once a week as time allows – but you know how it goes when you’re trying to balance daytime tasks with moonlighting content, while also moving across the country. It’s a lot! 

I did want to use this post to share my inspiration for the blog and the why behind it, which really stemmed from my last post where I announced that I’m wiring my very first book with the same name, The Marketing Starter. In the book I share personal stories of marketing starter struggles with anecdotes from a few close colleagues, friends, and advisors – but I wanted to go deeper and create something that could go beyond the words in my book while shamelessly plugging it. 

And that’s where the podcast was born. I wanted to find like-minded marketers and business professionals who can expand on the topics that I share in my book with their own personal stories. I wanted to hone in on the expertise of these guests and align their starter journeys to the tips that I shared in my book and really dig into the nuance of wearing an entrepreneurial hat while being a marketer.

So far, I have been blown away by the starter stories that my guests have shared, and I hope that you will be too. It’s so fulfilling and inspirational to actually sit down with these folks for an hour (don’t worry the episodes are only about 30 minutes) and just have real conversations about what makes them tick and what has led to their success. It’s something I have missed deeply since this pandemic sheltering has taken over all our lives.

I miss those coffee meetups and networking events that used to fuel my personal inspiration and help me balze my trails. I’m sure all of that will be back soon, but in the meantime these podcast interviews are filling the void, but also giving me great content to share with you.

I hope that you give the show a listen and subscribe, like, share, comment, blah blah blah. And of course, stay tuned for the book release later this year.

I’m Publishing My First Book

I’m Publishing My First Book

Boy, it sure has been a while since I blogged about what’s new in my marketing universe. Quite a bit has gone down in the past couple years, including three job changes and, of course, a worldwide pandemic that temporarily paused many of our hopes and dreams 

However, quarantine and lockdowns did create much needed space for me to write my very first book. That’s right, this guy is soon to be a published author! My book, The Marketing Starter, will dive deep into stories of how I have applied an entrepreneurial mindset to my marketing and share valuable insights and tips to anyone looking to jump start their marketing efforts. It will uncover all the life lessons from a marketer who has never finished anything… and you’ll learn why.

I am beyond excited that the painstaking work of researching and writing a book is finally paying off. The manuscript is currently being professionally edited and will soon be available for peer review. Trust me, just getting the manuscript done is a HUGE step — ask any first time author.

So, I wanted to use this blog update to let the world know that the book is officially on its way and will be published in mid 2021. There is still a lot of work to do on formatting, design, marketing, etc., but honestly it’s all downhill from here.

I am hoping that you will all support this long-time life goal of mine by purchasing the book and leaving a great review when it’s out. In the meantime, I hope that you will also be a part of my launch team. As a member, I can run ideas by you and where you can learn how to get the word out on launch day. If you’re open to being a part of the group, shoot me a note on LinkedIn or drop your email HERE to get notified.

And, as if I didn’t have enough to do, I am also launching a podcast by the very same name where I will be featuring kickass marketing starters from around the world! They will be sharing their stories, pitfalls, and tips about how marketers can better utilize the starter mindset in their careers. 

If you love marketing, business, entrepreneurship, or starting cool shit, then my book and podcast are for you! Stay tuned as we gear up for release of both this year.
