The BS with Bob podcast featuring entrepreneurs, business people and marketers this week talking with David, David is the CEO of and is a voiceover person myself is pretty cool to be able to talk to the guy that's in charge of probably the largest place to go to get that to get voices David, welcome to the program. Thanks much Bob thought glad to be here and tell some stories. So how did you get in that the whole voiceover Dick everyone finds her own path and my nose is pretty unique. Actually I see with sound go out and share about how Bob had an old record player and dad had a shortwave radio so I always could tinkered with you technology if you could call it that went to school and got a degree in in audio engineering that I opened up a small recording studio, so this was an opportunity for a reported music bands and so forth, but actually got my name in the newspaper on my birthday and I was actually that article brought in some local businesses that were looking to how the female voiceover reported done for phone system that actually met a young woman, just the day before, who was a classically trained singer and that that ladies and now Stephanie is now my wife and cofounder that time she was a classic between singer and I asked her to do these voiceovers and so she did a phone system and some local radio commercials and that was the problem referred to it as well. Instead of us doing the production. Why don't we become this. The connector between the voice actor in the client is looking to hire them and so we got out of the production ourselves and really reinvented ourselves as as this marketplace that connects the businesses with those voice actors and that's what we been doing for much the last decade and how did you score the name we actually didn't start as we we began as as interactive voices, which wasn't exactly the greatest website name the pigeons will listen to new media or interactive media. It was around the height of what was then the Web 2.0 movement when you know everything was big bright and bubbly on the web about flashy colors and and companies like twitter and Flickr were like dropping bowels from their name and as we want to be part of this movement so we were set on changing rebranding. In effect, so I did with many entrepreneurs do you pull up a browser you Google the domain name of your choosing of your desires and we had landed on a website called as a medical Journal club silencing the critical voices in your head is a medical journal that had been updated since about 2000. And so we reached out actually through a lawyer sent an email to this owner and asked what he saw the name and if so what price and he came back he said initially said that $50,000 and then know you know through some negotiation offered six payments of $5000 can of every quarter every three months with them another $5000, and for that he went to the deal. So we were able to almost like a lift and shift their business from the old servers to the new servers and redirect all that traffic that's been actually evolved one of the biggest turning points for us. It was a name that is short. It's memorable. It's easy to spell it, since what we do in a nutshell, so it's been the it's been really great for my from that standpoint. So how does something like work for the end user so it must have a business and I want to get a voice and looking for a male voice and female voice. Can I use to have auditions with different voices or how does that. How does even work. The process is very simple. You sign up for freeing you create an account and its most points will we call client feels people are looking to hire a talent have that project in their mind and so you after signing up you can do what we call posting a job was free to post the job and that is where you outline just as you said in looking for a male voice and a female voice I you know I might be enormously...

Lorri Allison Craig is a Certified Financial Planner The BS of Bob Schmidt podcast featuring entrepreneurs, marketers and business people this week talking with Lorri Allison Craig is an entrepreneur and author and a certified financial planner wanted to talk with her about starting up your own business over your lunch hour and I think that a lot of us as entrepreneurs can have that is a dream in our work and are 95 and were thinking about the daily grind and the crap that were dealing with on a daily basis with again we can do it better. Lori, is it possible for us to do better and that you know can I start a business only during her lunch hour anybody come to people that are God only 75% higher than that is a lot of people just hate what they do on a daily the grind is just there, I developed the lunch bag in the UK learn on your lunch hour to start a business doing something that you have is is that the key right there is doing something that you love you again something that it's not worth the joy you don't care how many traits you spend doing what you know, I found that II mean I really enjoy podcasting. I'm just waiting for the dollars to start rolling in. So how do you do how do you monetize the thing you love to do and end up making a living out of it that not only did that learning to halt the difference that parents see that and for asking different ways that you can make money and lifting her that when you get a bad business plan part that is forecasting different ways that you can monetize that care mistakes with your business plan is not necessarily for somebody else it's for you to… More and think to go do some research is like, okay, let's look at some other podcast. How do they make money and find some no entrepreneurs that you can just follow their plan. Instead of reinventing the wheel. You think that a lot of entrepreneurs try to reinvent the wheel every time. Why can do better than that, and then realizing that there drowning in minute I spent all this time and I could just look at this or could I just googled that you know what had the answer right there rather than spending time doing a short story. My daughter grip on my lap running a business from my home and said she didn't think anything about it. Just as she graduated from college. He started business in her home and now she went to multimillion dollar corporation from her living room while while he lived saying to me, mom and found only now – or if I'd only known that and said okay well that's Lamb writing this so that people can just you know get it in a simplified version and a male only difference Glatz like one of them is building a team of professionals explain you have decided what you want to do that next year as when you want to go find the accountants in that attorney and that can help you in that particular area to want to get your team together absolutely need to get your team going that before you going to need to know what you can again like that great idea rightly admit you'd mentioned business plan a couple minutes ago and the importance of a business plan. What kind of detail should we put forth in her business plan to make sure that people don't get that. I don't know that there tell doing the business plan because it is so big and complicated and daunting and that scripting I think the first time that you do it you start with a simplified business plan. You go to the Internet and you find a sample kind of closely related to what you want to do because it's going to have a lot of things – that maybe you haven't thought at sea as a template and go through it and see if you're on the right thing. Not you I'd thrown out more ideas than I've ever actually started business with probably 5 to 1. So if you do the business plan and simplified version you can kind of see upfront whether it seems viable or not Outlook let me ask a little bit about that because I my mind is always with all this would be a...

E53 Dr Rod Wallace - Drowning in Potential

1/2/2019 The BS Bob Schmidt podcast talking entrepreneurship, business and marketing. This week's guest is economist, consultant and author Dr. Rod Wallace and Telluride that the one class that I got the lowest grade in in college I just graduated and that in April was economy are economics and it's weird because I like the class. I studied hard in the class but the teacher didn't allow stem open books only got a B in the class. I'm very sorry to hear that, Bobby. We can do better, but of course we can ride your business strategist. What is a business strategist actually do the work for planning and so you know, the book of what might I let you know we want to grow in Europe and Asia and we want to shrink in. You know our presence in South America, but the really interesting part of that is taking a step back and saying what's really going on in the world because that plan. We want to grow in Europe and Asia should be based on what's really going on in the world and that's the interesting part where we say okay why is it that okay that it seems that technology growth as measured by an economist has shrunk since 1980. Or it's been a lot slower 1980 than it had been before 1980. Even though you look at all the amazing stuff that come out like computers in cell phone and artificial intelligence and ego. What now the most amazing technology ever and were scared of email people being replaced by machines. And yet, the economists say that economic growth has slowed. During that time I said we want to grow and then we want to shrink we want to grow what we want to grow our presences as American businesses going to grow our what they deliver. It couldn't we talk about it. GDP, which is basically the total value of everything produced in the United States are you thinking we got 270 million people in the US, something like that and if we produce no 50 thousand dollars of stock per person that better than if we only produce $25,000 of stuff for person to talk gross domestic product that's what the GDP is as or try to grow okay because I was sure to try to make it is simple as possible because when people are listening you know sometimes your heads in the cloud. Sometimes there you know it's it's kind of on his background. Sometimes there be no pain will close attention so try to make things as simple as possible for people that are listening well the part that's really saying is that we have an increasing number of people that are going to college and are getting educated, and that that seems like it's fantastic and back at night, but the same point we are in a country where more than half of the public universities one third of the senior people in the last year cannot make a cohesive argument but cannot assess the quality of evidence in the document or interpreted table door, going to school forever. It's just that we don't seem to be necessarily learning a whole lot. The whole time were doing so would you suggest we do in place of that. I think what we need to do is first and foremost understand more clearly what it is that were trying to get out of our educational system. Right now we have everyone is is going through and improving little pieces of the educational system and we have a bunch of teachers that are really awesome and that most of them care about Arctic art, our kids, not all of them but most of them do. And then we have a really cool programs that are designed to take kids into the behind. Grade level and bring them up to grade level with other programs that are designed to take kids are younger physically and mentally handicapped in and mainstreamed in each one of those things is really awesome. The problem is when you combine them all what you have is you have yelp, the teacher is trying to help these five first-graders who are behind first grade level. Enter like 17 digit code into the computer to take their weekly standardized test and the rest of the school just going to classrooms is going...

E52 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

The BS of Bob Schmidt podcast usually dealing with entrepreneurship, business, and marketing but at this time of the year I like to reflect on the year that was in the year that's coming up as we wrap up 2018 get our journey to 2019 I'd like to reflect on a few highlights of my year. In May I lost a job that I loved, but it turned out to be a positive thing by pushing me to start my own and then to grow my own business podcast for I also turned 50 years old, I graduated from Western technical College with an Associates degree in sales and sales management, I got my bartenders license and got my first job as a bartender a couple of days a week. I wanted couple of great trips including Chicago a couple of times went to the Twin Cities a few times, went to New York also I drove the upper Midwest with a buddy of mine through Minnesota South Dakota and Wyoming we went to Devils Tower and Old Faithful. I got a job doing national radio with hot rocket USA got to spend some time with both of my brothers spent time with my family of origin made new friends some great new friends got to spend time with some old friends that are dear and near to my heart , I spent lots of time this year reflecting on life and what I wanted to do with my life at our family land. But the best times that I spent this last year with my own family making memories and reliving them with stories and with pictures I hope that if you celebrate Christmas that you enjoyed your season. When I grew up everyone said Merry Christmas and happy new year now we have to ask if it's okay to say Merry Christmas and honestly that bothers me if somebody said happy Hanukkah or happy Kwanzaa to me I'd be happy that somebody took the time out of their day that say hello but if I say Merry Christmas to you I'm saying it generically wishing you were somebody good luck the best of times. I think that we've set this whole political correctness standards of the day to a whole new level and it is unfortunate. The start of a new year is an exciting time a new calendar new month new start of the week it's a new day it's a brand-new chance to start over the New Year's and a clean slate I do over, a chance to start over, reset if you well. I hope that the year 2019 finds you and your family with all the adventures, the love, the enjoyment, the travel, basically everything that you wish for and you do over. I know something that everyone just says but I truly truly hope that you 2019 is the year for you through hard work and desire I hope that your reset button gives you the chance to achieve all of your dreams. My hopes for this year are to continue to grow my business to cultivate new friendships to grow friendships that I already have, to listen to family to spend time with family to communicate with loved ones, you know I do have a lot of goals and a lot of dreams that I hope I'm able to achieve in 2019. I hope that I get the chance to do these things and I hope that you get the chance to do the things that you set your mind to. I hope that you're able to find the things that you need in order to have a happy successful enjoyable and great 2019. Let's take a moment and reflect to the memories of 2018 and the unpublished pages of 2019 may your new year be the best ever happy new year from podcast for

E51 Elizabeth Dickinson - The Concise Coaching Handbook

Bob Schmidt podcast featuring entrepreneurs, business people and marketers this week talking with Elizabeth Dickinson certified life coach and public speaker as well as author of the book. The concise coaching handbook how to coach yourself and others to get business results and I had a chance to meet Elizabeth a few months ago. Back in New York and had a chance eight, Hennepin conversation and chat a little bit about business and invited around of the podcasts talk about this and you know Elizabeth, I think that a lot of people a lot of self-starters a lot of entrepreneurs and people that are it you know in business for themselves have all these great ideas but sometimes the concise part is is a hard thing for people to get yeah I don't you think that I think the people have a hard time to try to be concise week, at least for myself. I also at taco stuff out there and I could whittled it down and said okay let's just focus in on this one little thing actually very true ruler and ruled McCracken' you folks in the real estate industry and outlets. Also, home remodelers, and a lot of then interesting the problems that they back and turn it in your heart you deal with people who don't get to the point here, and he needed some Texan checks around around that kind of think it is tricky to glow from storm helps to bring somebody out to just kind of rehearsing your head a little thing about what you can save on what your message is to be sure that you don't have to fumble around when you're actually leaving a message or on the phone and I think it's actually helpful. I am just going into and what are the top three things I need to get across in this conversation. Helping organize and train your brain just a little back so that you can do more effective conversation with other people know it is. I could hear was that based on my start of the start of the show. I'm just double checking, you know, it's funny that you brought that up because I know that my son he's 20 and he before he makes a phone called anybody he practices what he wants to say to those people and still nine times out of 10 he says dad is still screwed up. How do you have stuff to say when you're on the radio is and I honestly I don't know just kinda comes to me often because you're a great improviser and you're just ready to go with whatever energy of the conversation is going to be able to allow yourself to everybody. And so they really do think about it a little bit you so much radio experience, you probably don't get nervous. I totally the opposite. I get nervous all the top name yeah and it's it's crazy to think that but I route I really do it, or talking in front of a group of people. I despise that that's one of my least favorite things in the world to do what you I think it's a fear of messing up. I mean honestly, I've given myself permission to make mistakes. You know when it would have done things I said you know just got there, do the best you can do but I still sometimes have a difficult time trying to figure out that or I think that people perhaps are thinking well this guys professionally should do a better job than you really think I don't know. I really don't know. I I've taken classes of to. I actually went back to college as an adult to try to learn new skills and I had a speech class. I did well in the speech class but I think it's just I need to get out of my own head I don't. Maybe this counseling session with a lot of person in your shower. Friendly and welcoming role answers that people come up with more effect that they're more likely to listen to themselves are more likely to act on their own advice on impossible for them to stop thinking about what however he said it so firm so so I'm hoping if we were an actual coaching session, we help a little deeper and see if we could come up with strategies to help you need out how self-critical people are because I went to a real estate seminar a few weeks a few weeks ago there was a young Asian guy,...

The little infant sleeping with no with my homeless mother and I discovered buying an older couple the morning and no man went out to shovel the snow and found me sleeping there with my mom and eventually she gave me up several months later to that thing couple and I never knew my mom I was shipped away or I get you their doctor delaying my adoptive family went on to California and I grew up in the Bay Area and Vincenzo did not Cavalli was 21, 22 years later I returned to Philadelphia to find the heart of my moods on my mom how hard was it for you to know that you're given up by your mother grow up with a with a different family and then returned to you know that the quote the scene of the crime in order to find to see if your mom first will still live. Secondly, she still remembers you wound that that was a very dramatic experience growing up without her was nondramatic to me because the family that I was adopted in was so loving and kind.

When we did so it was then my cousin came up to me your name was Joanne. She said would you like to find your mom and I would like wishing she said she's Rachel and she lives in the streets and that night I could hardly sleep realizing the very woman that had brought me into this world was somewhere out there in the concrete jungle trying to supply and so that began the journey the emotional journey for me because up to that time, enthusiastic question and never thought about actually finding her and I didn't have that I didn't have the desire, none of that was in the course to my mind, hardly at all. When she asked that I was confronted with the reality and so that's when we began our journey did everything to your life up to that point was alive that you're living like a different living a lie even though you may not have known it, but then actually figured out, or to think about it after the fact, that very amazing question that you know I had to struggle with being adopted and I remember the day I was finally adopted in the paperwork went through. I was about 13 years of age and I remember reading 17 being adopted and rethinking not being original with my family. Kind of like even though my mom and dad J love me, though I was their very own flesh and blood and was never that feeling like you're not but you still have that feeling in some way because it windows come from other directions and I presented, but it wasn't until I discovered my mom and I had to process it and then when I finally got off the streets in class essay… Myself you know I have is closer to because you gave me up you...

For example, I was at a luncheon today for an organization. Nine in the organization is full of people. So I wore business looking out that I certainly wasn't in business casual. I had a nice really nice jacket and shirt underneath it and my and I looked trendy but professional and so I dressed that way this week will go to party. I'm going to one weekend, much more casual, and go party. So I'm jacket a business jacket. I'm going to be in a letter for the work, great color that I know looks good so just stop and think what I want to give to the people I'm getting ready to be involved in things to do when you're not sure. Back to first of all what I said earlier. Who are you meeting with right know what is there hell of a big company would be different than a small business down the street and so forth and still think about the message you want to get to that person would expect respected right person would have in mind okay right that makes a lot of sense.

E48 Dr Teruni Lamberg Conducting Productive Meetings

In Episode 48 I talked with Dr Teruni Lamberg - the three takeaways from reading her book, how to conduct productive meetings by finding your passion, how to structure meetings so that that you are not just spinning your wheels, and moving your agenda forward and looking for slight communication in different ways to communicate in relationship building that is really critical for conducting productive meetings, make it fun. Teruni Lamberg, Ph.D. Associate Professor, Elementary Mathematics Education Director Lemelson STEM MS Program Program Coordinator, Master of Education and Master of Science in Elementary Education Ph.D Program Coordinator in STEM Education The University of Nevada, Reno College of Education, MS 280 Reno, Nv 89557 BS with Bob Schmidt talking, entrepreneurship, business and marketing my guest this week is Dr. to Rooney Lambert, a math educator and an author. And what about that Kennecott my eye it's dealing with meetings and we fall as business people had meetings that sock legislated as it is, there's a lot of meetings out there that are just horrible. The book is called conducting productive meetings how to generate communicate ideas for innovation and let's just jump right into it to Rooney just with the meeting part because like I said, we've all been to just horrible meetings. How is it possible to conduct a productive meeting. Or is it even possible to think that artists really ancient writing is learning how do you create needing to actually go anywhere and think are parts of being in really bad meetings ready to. Nothing gets accomplished. Ready to get that you call by doing productive meetings is figuring out what you goalless as a team for putting that team together and then be near the to move ideas qualified for that it is remaining at how you stage but it actually moves to solve it into our products on new IDM for things that moved up the agenda of Iran thoughts of my things and such and thinking about meetings for my mistakes like project that involved every single school district conflict with universities and lots of different people from that of a geographically spread across people didn't have time. So whenever we had a meeting it's really important that we use that time productively to find a productive meeting is to figure out what your purposes and how people coming to the meeting with IBM to share the light giving people let's – don't have time and saying think about risk of any coming to the meeting, you have something to contribute to the meeting time matters so that he had a problem or a question giving everybody an opportunity to share their ideas. It doesn't matter who you are hierarchical roles that only the people with the titles talk doesn't it's not productive. You just need to create a condition give us the opportunity for everybody the cable to contribute their ideas so the last company that I work for. We used to do brainstorming meetings every week and sometimes these seem to go with the flow. Sometimes they seem to work. We always had the agenda had a time. We knew that were to talk about this that and the other thing how to get somebody to start paying attention to what needs to be done and what needs to be said really go from two euros another because he does lead successfully thinking the correct team members that really help move that project idea forward. For example, if you have coming by and do what you trying to accomplish is really important. Building on team members interests of when people want to pontificate, is because it's something that is constantly avoiding going for them. They want pay for benefits for them sitting in the need meetings where things are not meaningful to them that they not going to be as engaged so up picking the right team members Paul like you trying to accomplish is important. The leader needs to...

E47 Being Thankful

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, there are no expectations, there is good food, football, friends and family. Today I would like to focus on things that I am thankful for. I first and foremost am thankful and proud of my family, they are the people who put up with me at my worst, because they are truly the ones that see the good, the bad and the ugly. For my family thank you and I love you. My friends are next on the list for many of the same reasons, we may hold back a bit around them, but they pretty much know who you are and what you stand for, these are people with a choice, they choose to be with you, where your family is kind of stuck, friends are the people who choose to hang out with us, so thank you for putting up with my BS and for being a friend, it means so much. My neighbors are next on the list, when you move into a new neighborhood you really have no idea what you are getting into, from the old man across the street to the couple and their kids next door, to my single neighbor down the street, to my buddy across the alley I wouldn’t trade who lives by me for the world, neighbors take care of where we live, look after each other, and take pride in where they live. I would thank my podcast clients, you allow me to share your story with your voice, giving podcast for a chance to share a story or a laugh. I am thankful for my listeners of my podcasts from my podcast to the listeners of my Microcasts with I am also thankful for my Facebook friends, even though we often times don’t talk we know what is going on in each others lives, and it makes me happy. Everyone is thankful for something, for example family, job, and the people in your life. I get those things to be happy and thankful for, I really do. I am also thankful for shelter, the food in my belly, the fact that I have modern conveniences all around me. I am thankful for the media, I get my news, my laughter, my tears, my excitement, my livelihood from the newspaper, tv and the radio. I am also thankful for education and learning, if not for that we would be stagnant. I am thankful for the newer technologies that are all around us, even though I get irritated by people being on their computers and their phones all the time, myself included, I am grateful that this technology is here and within reach of most of us. I think that it is fantastic that we live in a free society where if we want to complain about something, we can and that the government doesn’t throw us in jail, I am thankful for the men and women who protect us both at home and away. The fact that I can turn on a light and have it flip on and flush a toilet and not have to worry about where it goes, that refrigeration keeps my food safe and that heat keeps me warm through the day. It is great that we can hop into our cars and go. When you are feeling down and that life sucks, step back and think, then thank. Most off all I am thankful for you for listening to this. Have a Happy Thanksgiving. And finally, I am a firm believer of if you don’t love something, do something about it. Why live in an area that you don’t find beautiful, safe and worth exploring, too many people complain about where they live, don’t like it move. I have lived around the Midwest, and visited most of the rest of the country, for me the upper Midwest is where I like living, and in La Crosse Wisconsin I am at home. I am also thankful for my health, even though I have a couple of issues with my hearing and eyes (I think that most of us get to be glasses wearers at some point in our lives.), for the most part this big man is in pretty goodshape, I guess that round is a shape right? We are lucky to have such great health care right here in our backyard. Education is a high priority and we are lucky to have access to great public and private education here without having to bus our kids for hours, plus the three higher learning facilities, bringing in great minds from all over,...
