    EP.30 Creating a Media Company

    In Episode 30 “Creating a Media Company” Host Josh Fedie, Founder of SalesReach.io is joined by James Carbary of Sweet Fish Media.

    In todays environment, content is king. But the content of today is dramatically different than it was even just 5 years ago.

    If you follow Gary V in any capacity, you'll be familiar with his stance on how every company should be viewing themselves as a media company.

    James and I share this belief as well.

    I responded by creating a media focus within my business, a time consuming and laborious endeavor.

    James on the other hand, after seeing the challenges for businesses to successfully implement this kind of strategy for themselves decided to solve a problem and create a media company to help other businesses become a media company.

    James is also the author of a new book Content-Based Networking, which dives deep into the opportunities content production serves towards business development and person branding.

    If your business has been considering getting into the podcasting game this would be an ideal listen for you.

    EP.29 "A Whole World of Experience"

    In Episode 29 “A Whole World of Experience” Host Josh Fedie, Founder of SalesReach.io is joined by Patrick Thompson of Iteratively.

    What is Iteratively? A smart tracking plan for smart companies. It's a software that fosters collaboration with your entire team to ship high-quality analytics faster and be confident in the results.

    Before becoming the co-founder of this new company, Patrick worked in some incredible roles with some of the biggest tech companies in and all over the world including some that my company (and yours) likely use a lot. Atlassian. You've heard of Jira and Trello right!?

    Clearly, this is someone focused on organization and productivity, which made his recent company a natural fit within the skillset he developed through his career.

    Enjoy!

    EP. 28 Exploratory Leadership

    EP. 28 Exploratory Leadership

    In Episode 28 “Exploratory Leadership” Host Josh Fedie, Founder of SalesReach.io is joined by Nate Garvis, the Co-Founder of Studio/E

    Nate and his longtime friend and Co-Founder Tom Wiese started their business in 2011. It was during a walk together (while talking about their own life and the lives of people they love) that they identified a need they believed they could solve.

    What was that need? A place for business leaders to come together. To learn. To Grow. to help each other do better in life and business. To be better leaders in their work and community.

    For the last 11 years, this initial concept has remained and has helped inspire countless leaders. Their events and workshops have become a thing of legends and their community is the definition of supportive.

    If you're just learning about Studio/E, I hope you look into them more. They are an incredible resource.

    EP.27 Be Generous

    EP.27 Be Generous

    In Episode 27 “Always Be Innovating” Host Josh Fedie, Founder of SalesReach.io is joined by Kris Lindahl, the founder and CEO of Kris Lindahl Real Estate.

    If you live in Minnesota, you know Kris as the "guy from the billboards". But as you'll learn in this interview he is much more.

    He is an innovator, he is full of generosity and he truly has The Founders' Mentality.

    After working in Real Estate for other firms and growing his book of business in record breaking ways, he decided to apply his philosophy of how Real Estate could look by launching the Kris Lindahl Team.

    The rest seems clear to most. He is almost omnipresent with his marketing hitting us on podcasts, live events, every other billboard in the state and radio but it's really his Be Generous campaign that he is most passionate about today. If you're not sure what that is, tune in and learn something new about a guy you assumed you knew everything about already.

    EP.26 Luck of the Irish

    In Episode 26 “Luck of the Irish” Host Josh Fedie, Founder of SalesReach.io is joined by Darin Lynch, the founder of Irish Titan.

    Since 2004, Darin and his team of Titans have been beating the "Business First. Online Second.℠" drum. It's more than just a catchy (and trademarked!) saying for them. It's how they work every day.

    Prior to founding his agency, Darin was responsible for some of the early ecommerce developments at companies like Wilsons Leather and 2nd Swing Golf stores.

    But like many founders, he had dreams of doing this better. In his way. On his terms.

    And then one magical St. Patricks Day, his vision started taking shape and the rest is history.
