    The Marketing Minute Episode #1

    The Marketing Minute Episode #1

    Welcome to the Marketing Minute! We’re a short-form story-driven podcast designed to provide value and industry insight—all in under ten minutes. Every episode, we invite an expert guest to answer three questions: What’s your favorite story for marketing communications professionals? What were the insights gained? Why do you do what you do? It’s all the value and nothing else. Succinct. Insightful. Actionable. Give us a listen, subscribe, and follow! 3-2-1. Done.





    When I was about 12 years old, my pediatrician found that I had ADHD. This was no surprise to my exhausted parents, and Ridellan was prescribed. I remember one of my friends snapped her fingers in front of me and said “Hey, Karl are you in there?“ I was there, and I was paying attention. “I see you snapping your fingers,“ I said, feeling like my personality had been pulled out of my body.

    It wasn’t a fun experience, but I learned to find solutions that met my needs. I still got distracted, of course. The difference was that I found my unique perspective lent itself to creating solutions that other people didn’t see. It’s allowed me to build several successful companies and grow hundreds of brands.

    The point is, I learned I had options:



    I didn’t have to accept what others believe were short-comings

    One prescribed solution isn’t always the right one

    Each of us has the power inside of us to overcome obstacles

    And seeing things differently, is a good thing.  Sometimes, a very good thing.



    It’s been my lifelong passion to come up with creative solutions that serve people. I’m doing it now everyday through a digital marketing and media company, as well as by hosting this short-form show.

    On every episode, a subject matter expert delivers a relatable story, the insights to learn from that story, and why they do what they do, as I have just done in just a few minutes. It’s perfect for busy professionals with a modern attention span.

    I’m Karl Boehm, your host and guest for this episode. I’m the CEO and founder of Spiral Marketing, and this is the Marketing Minute.

Invaluable source of information

Through his podcasts, Karl brings spirited and profound insights into the world of marketing strategy, to include speakers who are emerging and established entrepreneurs and professionals from various industries.
As a former design professional in a sales environment, I realize the importance of allowing potential clients to find me and increase sales leads through marketing tools. And some of the podcasts here that piqued my interest, delve into that aspect.
And now that I have recently shifted gears to become the owner of a small business, listening to these invaluable podcasts makes me optimistic that even without a traditional corporate job, I can be successful doing what I love, and that I am limited only by my own passion, dedication and creativity.

Marketing isn't the worst anymore.

As a young professional trying to grow my business, the idea of sitting down and figuring out how to "market myself" just seems impossible sometimes. This makes it not so scary.

Possibly my favorite thing about The Spiral Marketing Podcast is how it humanizes these very successful people. Some of us look at incredibly successful people and maybe see them more as a unicorn or something magical that just appeared, and we don't see that uber high greatness as achievable, but these personal interviews bring to realization that they weren't just "born" this way.

A spiral twisted with Brilliance and Inspiration!

What a joy it is to listen to this podcast! Karl knows how to bring on guests who embody positive, inspiring, and driven energy. I was wowed by his guest Zephan, who explained the value of video marketing being how to reveal the true you behind the curtain, to your market. Other golden nuggets gained : traveling gets you to your core self by unraveling the layers, what we truly desire from businesses is for them to share their true personal story, it is the person who we buy. I look forward to learning more from your engaging Podcast! InterviewValetCF
