The Evolution of Delivering Marketing Joy

the evolution of Delivering Marketing Joy

It was 8 years ago when I decided to do a new piece of content called “Delivering Marketing Joy.”  I wanted to do a “web show” where I interviewed thought leaders, marketers, and other entrepreneurs each week.  And I had heard that the average show never makes it to episode 5…so I wanted to have 5 under my belt before I started.

I reached out to a few people I (sort of) knew to ask them to be guests.  And it was hard to describe what I wanted to do…because there were very few people doing it.  But several people were kind enough to trust me…so I was able to get started.

Episode 1 dropped on October 14, 2014...with Mark Graham.

It’s Too Long!

As I was describing it, many people were concerned with the length of the show.  “No one will watch a 15-minute video,” they warned me.  And while I shared that concern, I kept pushing back because I wanted to have a real conversation and I didn’t think I could do that in a shorter format.  Now…guests regularly comment on how mine is a “quick-hit” podcast.  Many podcasts today go much longer.


While many things about the show have changed, the basic idea is consistent.  I get to chat with the best and brightest in the marketing and entrepreneurship space about their expertise.  I get a weekly education from some amazing and incredibly bright folks.  That being said, as I look back on some early episodes, it’s hard not to cringe sometimes.  But that’s how it goes.  They say that, as a content creator, if you are not embarrassed by your early work…you waited too long to start.

So as I get ready to record my 400th episode, I wanted to say “thanks!”  It’s hard to believe that people have watched this weekly show for all these years.  I really do appreciate the time and attention.  And now I need to continue to evolve and make sure I am serving.

The 400th episode will be recorded LIVE tomorrow at 10 am eastern on PromoCorner.  I am excited and nervous about it.  So feel free to tune in…and give me feedback to make me better for the next 100 episodes!

No Complaining Today

No Complaining Today

Complaining is an insidious habit.  It steals joy, productivity, and happiness.  I know this...and I have even written about it before.  And yet, sometimes, I find myself falling back into the trap of complaining. I don't even know I am doing it, and then all of a...

My Internal Voice

My Internal Voice

My internal voice has been being a jerk lately. I have talked about "that voice" we all have many times.  It's the voice that yammers on all day long in our heads.  Sometimes it's good...but oftentimes...not so much.  That internal voice is the one we hear the most in...

The Predictable Should Be Prepared For

When my wife and I bought 14 acres of land in Coshocton recently, we had considered buying a lawn tractor.  But because it was quite a few acres, I felt like it needed to be a larger lawn tractor.  Many of my friends disagreed.  They told me, over and over, that I...
