Episode 12 – The Coda Clothing Story Starring Colter Wood

Coda Clothing and Shoes This weeks episode is an interview with the man behind Coda Clothing & Shoes, Colter Wood.  Coda is no stranger to my blog.  I’ve written about Cause Marketing and how Coda brands itself in the community.  I am also currently working with Coda on their online marketing.

Colter is a fascinating business man and a friend that sticks out in my mind.  He’s opinionated and very smart on many topics.  It’s very refreshing  He’ll disagree with you to your face without making you feel bad about it.  He thinks about business differently.  He’s made some astute business decisions early on in his career that I don’t think most people would have in the same situation.  He has a unique mind, doesn’t agree with the status quo, and has delivered on the vision of what he set out to create.  It’s an inspiring story.

The Only Two Reasons Why We’re On The Internet…

“People only go to the Web for two reasons – to solve a problem or to be entertained.”  Think about that when you’re considering your next Facebook update, Tweet, blog post, new website, or newsletter article.

Episode 10 – Why Earls is Better, an Interview with Jim Demeray

Jim DemerayIn episode 10 I talk to Jim Demeray (follow Jim on Twitter or see Jim’s MySpace Page).  He’s the managing partner at the Earls Vic East location.  I met Jim in University and he always was a little different, a little weird.  In a good way.

I always looked up to Jim because he had an amazing gift of entertaining people back in University and he still does to this day.  He’s a natural entertainer.  Couple a shining personality with a strategic thinking mind that’s constantly learning and you get a brilliant leader and partner in Earls Vic East restaurant.
