    GLD Communications Presents- 3-2-1 PROFITS - THE PODCAST - S1:E10 Your Chamber and You (Live!)

    If you own a business anywhere in the U.S., you’ve probably either joined or been approached to join the local chamber of commerce. Chamber membership can provide a great resource to any size or type of business - if the organization is well managed. 
    What is a “chamber of commerce?” A chamber of commerce is a not-for-profit, regional organization of business owners, entrepreneurs, and private citizens who come together in an effort to promote the interests of their local business community. Chambers are typically run by a paid staff, led by the CEO or Executive Director with input from a board of directors. 
    Chambers of commerce leverage their group resources to help member businesses of any size obtain affordable healthcare, discounts on member products and services, and save money on promotions and marketing. That said, every chamber is different and the overall personality, value, and effectiveness of each membership depends largely on three things: 1) the size of the region being served, 2) the size of the organization and 3) the leadership of the chamber. 
    In this episode of 3-2-1 PROFITS - THE PODCAST, host Gery Deer has a conversation with Wendy Rodgers, President and CEO of the Beavercreek Chamber of Commerce in Greene County, Ohio. Gery talks to Wendy about her experience as the newly-minted head of her chamber and how the members have responded to the work she and Operations Manager, Chris McClure, have done to add value and grow relationships within the membership.  
    But that’s not all! This episode of 3-2-1 PROFITS - THE PODCAST was recorded in front of a live audience of chamber member professionals and local business owners! During the episode you’ll hear our audience’s responses to the conversation and a few of them have some questions for our guest as well! 
    More About our Guest 
    Before being hired to this position, Wendy Rodgers served three years on the chamber board of directors where she held positions as 2020 Board Chair and 2021 Vice Chair.  Wendy has been a licensed realtor since 2018 and is currently with Irongate Realtors in Beavercreek. Prior to that she spent almost 20 years as a certified paralegal. 
    Wendy’s drive for community service certainly does not end at the chamber’s office door, however. In addition to her duties there, she is also president of the Beavercreek Kiwanis Club, served on the Beavercreek Zoning and Appeals Board and is involved in many other community outreach and volunteer programs.

    S1:E9 - 3-2-1 PROFITS - It's all about the Details

    S1:E9 - 3-2-1 PROFITS - It's all about the Details

    If your business is growing, it’s changing. If it’s changing, it’s probably becoming more complex, requiring more resources - in every respect. Many business owners experience growing pains, each unique to each of them. Expanding capabilities, onboarding of new employees and customers, even a physical move to a bigger and better location are all positive sides of growth but also bring added stresses.
    When Chris Chitwood decided his auto detailing business in Dayton, Ohio had outgrown his home garage, he and his wife knew it was time to change - to take a chance on something bigger and better. In this episode of 3-2-1 PROFITS - THE PODCAST, your host Gery Deer talks with Chris about how he took his first steps toward growing his business, Dayton Detailing, and where it’s leading him today. 
    Chris is certified with the International Detailing Association as a Certified Detailer and Skills Validated detailer. He is also certified for the installation of OptiCoat professional-grade ceramic coatings and paint protection film.
    Dayton Detailing is located at 3876 Indian Ripple Rd  Suite B  Dayton, OH 45440. You can call them for more information at (937) 409-9337, or visit their website www.daytondetailing.com

    S1:E8 - 3-2-1 PROFITS - Sales! Are you listening?

    S1:E8 - 3-2-1 PROFITS - Sales! Are you listening?

    In this episode of 3-2-1 PROFIT$ – THE PODCAST, your host Gery Deer talks with lifelong sales professional Matt Borgert.
    Matt Borgert is a consummate sales professional, with a skill set that starts with great listening and genuine care and understanding for those he’s working with. He was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, one of six kids and youngest of 3 boys, and so competitive by nature. His father was self-employed in the insurance business (sales skills being somewhat second nature in that regard) and he graduated with a BA in Business Management with Marketing Minor from Eastern Michigan University. 
    By the age of 30, Matt was working in the hotel/resort and convention hospitality industry where he’d been put in charge of sales and marketing operations for a $44-million hotel company in Cleveland. Clearly, he had the sales chops for it. Over his 10 years in that role, the company was able to increase revenues to $55 million while reducing annual sales and marketing expenses from $5 million to $2.8 million.
    In 2000, the hotel company was sold, and Matt returned to Dayton, partly due to the change in the business and to help care for aging parents. Since then, he’s been involved in a variety of sales and marketing work from franchise recruitment to the legal field. He took the time to come by our studio and share his experience, insights, and advice about the past, present, and future of sales - a skill that, the more it changes, the more it stays the same.

    This episode of 3-2-1 PROFIT$ – THE PODCAST was recorded to audio and video at the GLD Enterprises Communications, Ltd. studio in Greene County, Ohio.

    S1:E7 - 3-2-1 PROFITS - Franchising and the Chaos Wrangler

    S1:E7 - 3-2-1 PROFITS - Franchising and the Chaos Wrangler

    Season 1, Episode 7: Franchising and The Chaos Wrangler
    For some, the move to entrepreneurship begins with a single question: What kind of business do I want to be in? It can take some time and careful consideration to determine how your education and experience line up with a potential business option. But what if you could buy into an existing, successful business, complete with defined products and services and an established marketing platform? You can. It's called a franchise. 
    In this episode of 3-2-1 PROFIT$ - THE PODCAST, your host Gery Deer talks with Justin and Crystal Lavadour, owners of the Middletown, Ohio, franchise of Caring Transitions. 
    Caring Transitions is a national franchise of professionals who help wrangle the chaos of downsizing and moving. They specialize in decluttering, organizing, packing, moving, resettling, in-home estate sales and online auctions, estate clearing and preparing homes for market.
    Justin is a retired Lieutenant Colonel with more than 20 years of service in the United States Air Force. During his time with the military, he provided relocation services for United States and Allied military forces around the world. His specialty was organizing stressful and chaotic environments and finding solutions to complex challenges. 
    Besides managing the movements of equipment and people throughout the world, Justin’s background is further suited to his business choice. “I’ve also moved 35 times in my life, which is a lot, even for someone in the military,” he states on their website. “When I started thinking about what I wanted to do next, I realized that Caring Transitions would be a great way to use my experience to serve something bigger than myself and make a difference.”
    Being successful means that you need to have a good grasp on the needs of your customers. Crystal and Justin understand the impact relocations and estate clearings can have on families. It can be traumatic, particularly when the care of an elderly family member is involved, whether you’re right-sizing, moving into assisted living or clearing out a loved one’s home. It’s hard and it’s emotional, even when you have a plan in place. But these two are perfectly suited to the task.

    This episode of 3-2-1 PROFIT$ - THE PODCAST was recorded to audio and video at the studios of DATV in Dayton, Ohio.

    S1:E6 - 3-2-1 PROFITS - The Well Fed Writer

    Peter Bowerman is a Senior Marketing Copywriter, Business Coach, and Author of, The Well-Fed Writer how-to book series. He helps companies large and small, put their best (marketing) foot forward in their written materials of all stripes, and help others follow in my footsteps. 
    In this episode of 3-2-1 PROFIT$ - THE PODCAST, your host, Gery Deer, talks with Peter about the pitfalls and promise of being a professional, freelance commercial writer. They’ll discuss how Peter got started, how other marketing copywriters have influenced his work, and some of the challenges faced by anyone working independently, regardless of the industry. (LISTEN HERE www.321profitspodcast.com)
    In his discussion with Gery, Peter explained that his writing business took off because of his experience as a door-to-door salesman.  “When I launched my commercial-freelancing practice in 1994, I had no paid professional writing experience, no writing training, and no contacts,” Peter explained. “Yet, I focused on what I DID know – how to pick up the phone and make cold calls. 1000+ calls and about 4 months later, I had more work than I could handle.”
    As a highly-successful self-published author, Peter shares his experience, much of which was based in determination and learning the publishing business. “I had never written a book, nor had any idea how to get it published,” he said. “But over several years, I finished the book, and then, after doing a lot of research, realized that going the traditional publishing route (i.e., where you’d give up creative control, control of the timetable, the rights, and most of the profits) wasn’t for me. I decided instead to self-publish, and I’ve done FAR better than I could ever have done with a publisher.”


    Peter just released a new edition of The Well-Fed Writer and “companion” ebooks ...
