Last year my book Brand Dominance soared to best seller in less then 12 hours because of the strategies and process Jeremy helped facilitate during my launch.

Control VS Influence w/ Marty Neumeier

By | Advertising, Audio, Branding Like A Boss Podcast, Design, Entrepreneur, Ideas, Marketing, Resources | No Comments

To kick off the second season of Branding LAB, I sat down with Marty Neumeier, branding veteran, author and in my opinion “genius” to talk about his expertise and tips on being a pioneer in brand architecture.

Director of Transformation at Liquid Agency, Marty is the main thought leader for the agency and a prolific author on the art and universe of branding.

This season will put personal branding under the microscope, so launching with Marty as my first interview was a no-brainer. Personal branding doesn’t necessarily differ from company branding in process per se, which is a common misconception, but as far a intention is concerned…it absolutely does.

Podcasting and Webcasting Gear Guide

By | Audio, Branding Like A Boss Podcast, Everything Else, Film, Ideas, Marketing, News, Photography, Resources, Video | No Comments

So I’ve been getting tons of questions about “What gear am I using for X”.  So I’ve decided that instead of doing a live stream in my studio every day answering the same question… to put together a Gear Guide to quickly show you the equipment I use and where you can purchase it on Amazon.

By no means is this the Cheapest Gear Guide but it is My Gear Guide.  It’s also not the Best Gear Guide on the planet.  There are plenty of amazing manufactures such as Sony, Nikon, Rode and a handful of others that didn’t make the list but are still awesome manufactures of content creation tools.

This is a list of most of the equipment I use on a daily basis. Not only create my own personal content but also professional content for our clients.

Hope you find my Gear Guide useful… Now go out there and create some killer content.

Just in case you didn’t see all the hyperlinks above…
