Would you rather run naked through an airport… or work on marketing your business?

Entrepreneurs often seem to have some sort of allergic reaction to marketing. They love to build solutions to problems. This is what they live for. But when it comes to getting the word out about what they’ve created… they’d rather retreat to their basement and build some more.

If this feels like you at all, this episode of Intrepid Entrepreneur is for you!

Maybe you feel   that those who try to gain attention for the sake of monetary profit are selfish and greedy. Or you just don’t want to post updates of your nachos or your cat to your social feed (because you don’t love when other people do that). Either way, today’s episode will give you tips and tools  to gain engaged fans and followers on your social channels  


But where do you start? How do you attract attention in a way that’s genuine? How do you decide where to spend your valuable time? How do you make time in your busy schedule for marketing in the first place?

We'll cover all of that and more in today's episode.

Head to livinguber.com/giveaways, where you can enter to win a G3 swag bundle – including a beanie, trucker hat and t-shirt.

Two decades ago, Oliver Steffen founded G3 (Genuine Guide Gear), an independent, design-savvy leader of hardgoods and accessories designed to enable people to enjoy the winter backcountry (read: untracked powder, sans lift). Oliver has lead G3 from a single product (an avalanche probe pole) built on a workbench outside of his basement apartment, into a global brand complete with a 20,000-square foot factory and warehouse in Vancouver. G3 is known for its no-compromise, design-savvy manufacturing of skis, bindings, accessories (including skins) for all things backcountry. Every G3 product has been put through the rigorous screen of one question: Is this something a Guide would want to use? This is nothing short of an amazing story! Please rate, review and share this podcast with anyone you know who LOVES “walking around the mountains” on the snow, as Oliver so deftly puts it!

As of this podcast, I can now officially say that I’ve got a regular guest! Michele Flamer joins me again on today’s Intrepid Entrepreneur podcast. Michele is a well-known sales and training development management professional with a decade of leadership under her belt. She’s also the podcaster behind The Retail Couch. Today, Michele and I talk about implementation and creative ideas to drive a successful fourth quarter in your business. We also talk about the role of the sales reps in the changing retail landscape – a topic that Michele’s an expert with. Michele has worked in the gift, home, travel and outdoor active lifestyle markets and is impassioned about her industries, the retailer buyers and her peers in the sales representative world. We all need Michele’s insights as we continue to migrate through all of the changes in the consumer decision journey (meaning, how people research, buy and share products).
