  1. It’s good to be back with this latest episode, I missed you 😉

  2. Great to see you back Andrew! Seeings how I just bought your webTV show course about 3 weeks ago, its good to see that spite having such success in other areas of your business, the renumeration from Help My Business Sucks seems to still be worth your time and effort. I am re-ignited to get working on that project once again!

    As usual a great episode! See you next month!

  3. Thanks Adam,

    Yes, WebTV is still alive and well as an industry, that’s for sure.


  4. Hi Andrew,

    It’s great to have you back. I actually was wondering lately about what had happened to you. Just a thought for future reference, please let us know when you’ll be missing in action for awhile and give us a date of your return so we can anticipate seeing you again on a set date. Otherwise, we might think you’ve lost your interest.

    By the way, I bought your course on how to do video shows and now I have a weekly video half hour show entitled “Learning to Live in the Present Moment” which has been well received. Thank you for such a great course.

    Best regards,

  5. Very refreshing and giving us small business owner an avenue to get help from you.


  6. Can’t get your new episode on I tune’s

    Hi Andrew,

    Good to see you again. You are the greatest. I attended the first UIBC in Long Beach and so far have not gotten auto responder to work. Now have someone to help me so hopefully I can take advantage soon. My committed “pack” that attended with me finked out and are doing nothing. I am going to search for any attendees from the Phoenix, AZ area. I want to get a ROI on my investment!!

    I look forward to your future presentations. Loved the Royal Wedding and info re American Idol.

  8. I have been steadily learning from your site and presentations. I was concerned when I didn’t get any new info from you, I’m glad you’re back, and I look forward to your next installment. Now, tell the truth, was your absence a bid to up-sell your presentations to a VIP level?

  9. Wonderful to see you back. Great show. And your timing is perfect…was on the fence about signing up with a text messaging service for a new venture of mine. Will definitely check out the suggested BoomText.

    By the way, where are your shoes?! :-)


  10. Andrew, glad to hear from you. Great episode this week and congrats on your success with your new Bootcamp Series. Cheers 😉

  11. Hi Andrew – nice to have you back, but I find that this week’s episode doesn’t load………the little load circle just keeps spinning and spinning but no Andrew!!

  12. Great Show..

  13. You look good! Seems like you slimmed down a little! Work it Andrew!

  14. Andrew, in response to the text marketing….
    I think on websites at least it would be great if giving your phone number would be an OPTION and not a MUST only to get the information.
    Continued success!

  15. Really great to see you again!

  16. Yes I know it’s unlock day…
    Still I could not resist after printing my boarding pass to have a quik look at your website.
    Thanks you for all the things you and the team make possible for us to learn this business with laughter and nifty things :-)


  17. It’s already August! Even though you have been missing from our Wednesday marketing meetings, it has given us a chance to go back over a lot of the older episodes and remind ourselves of earlier lessons.

    We miss you, Andrew and look forward to your new lessons. (Also, we all agree here in the office about T-mobile, missing a chance to integrate their product into the commercial a little more- you would be proud of your marketing students here, as we picked that up right away!)

  18. Bruce Brodeen says:

    Come back, Andrew, come back. ;-P We miss you…though, you certainly are busy, busy, busy! Always a great ‘n wonderful thing….

  19. Nice show, congratulations.

    Best regards.

  20. Excellent show! I hope to learn alot. What a great idea to help businesses. Help me my business needs it! We think we have the best product in the nation, but we need to help spicing up the world!

    Continued Success!


  21. Hey Andrew, this is my first time here and glad I clicked through (from Google)! This show has everything – comedy, entertainment, and of course great marketing tips for us business owners!
