    I love the way you interview your guest, very direct and full of helpful business questions.
    Getting a perspective from other business owners, in this down economy, who are doing there own online marketing is very valuable, and encouraging to the other businesses owners, struggling to stay open.

    Great episode, Thank you.

  • Bruce Brodeen

    I have to echo that sentiment – it’s important to get a view of the many different types of businesses that out there and navigating through a difficult economic landscape – and are *doing* practical implementation of straightforward, simple & effective ideas.

    The message I take from this? Don’t get down, get doing – more. Then, a bit more.

    sad to see no new episodes and no new projects like the gotbiz.tv etc.

  • Andrew Lock


    Thanks for your interest in the show. Just to reassure you, the only reason for the recent sporadic episodes is that I”m traveling extensively around the world to teach a new program for small business owners, so I’m super busy with that right now. There will be plenty of new episodes throughout this year, but the weekly schedule is impossible for me to keep at the moment, thanks for your understanding.



  • Simone

    Hi Andrew. This was informative. I too am developing a business that will cater only to my local community. But I need more info and direction because most marketing material is for businesses who want to go global. So, more local marketing / program development info…please. Thanx.
