BrandingBlog Radio: Greysuit Retail with David Lively and Raffy Pendery

These guys rock. David Lively and Raffy Pendery are the brains behind Greysuit Retail and now Greysuit Apps.

Their mission is to make the techie side of the web easier for retailers. They’ve built a platform for managing a small retailer’s ecommerce, blog, web, craigslist, email and more. Now, with Greysuit Apps they can help you manage the ever-growing complexity of marketing on Facebook.

In the middle of the podcast, I asked how they came up with the name Greysuit. They went into a story about how laid-back they are and how they hardly ever even wear shoes. So, I thought I’d go swipe a photo of them from Facebook to use in this post. What did I find? David Lively in a dark suit-coat and Raffy in a tux. Sigh. So, I grabbed this image off of their web site instead.

Here are the links we talked about in the podcast:

BrandingBlog Radio: Carmine Leo on Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence. Do you have it? How would you know? I was certainly curious about the topic, so I interviewed my Facebook friend, Carmine Leo. He’s a life coach who works with high performance individuals, executive staff and even plain old folks who just want to get more out of life. The tools of Emotional Intelligence and Emotional Literacy are the means of helping his clients understand their choices and how to act.
One thing Carmine and I have in common: We both choose to live in tiny little places, off the beaten trail.

Join us on our first ever conversation this week and learn with me about a topic that can help you get more out of life.

Note: The books that Carmine mentioned are Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence by Daniel Goleman.

BrandingBlog Radio: Dennis Collins on Sales Management

Dennis Collins retired from a 42-year career in radio on October 6.

I caught up with him for this week’s podcast to gather a few of his priceless management and sales management gems of wisdom. We also talked about his future plans and how he will be making himself available for consulting and training opportunities. If I had a sales staff, Dennis would be my go-to guy. If you want me to put you in touch with Dennis, drop me a line.
