Mimi Ford (@mimiford) is someone who I look up to immensely.  It’s not every day that I get to speak with the second half of a dynamic entrepreneurial duo who loves to take part in IronMan triathlons. Mimi and I get to talking about her love of the sport, the immense amount of training that it takes and how she’s using her training time to help create content for her and her husband’s blog (http://tylerandmimiford.com).  I’m happy to introduce you to Mimi! Enjoy and help wish her the best of luck in Kona!

Amanda Ryan (@naturecreations) is representative of why I spend so much time in online communities.  She’s smart, entrepreneurial and is never afraid to create a little content.  On top of that her voice is almost a dead give away for Amber MacArthur’s which in my mind means she’s a perfect person to give a little Canadian flavor to a podcast.  I was happy to record with her over the weekend and I hope you enjoy this episode.

Neeley Neal (@neeleyneal) is someone who was mentioned to me twice in conversations in the last year.  Given that initial experience I started to follow her and watch her from afar.  Little did I know that Neeley was actually an entrepreneur who’s building something that I couldn’t be farther from her intended user but I still think the idea is brilliant.  Neeley’s is a former NFL Cheerleader and rolled that knowledge in to becoming the founder of SidelineStar.com.  Sideline Star is an online community for cheerleaders and their coaches with all kinds of resources directly from professional cheerleaders.  This interview was actually Neeley’s and my first conversation on the phone so I was getting to meet her just like you all are.  Enjoy!

Kevin-John Jobczynski (@KJ_CelebArtist) is a very talented artist who has found a way to make that talent pay his bills.  He found his way into a brilliant niche: hand-drawn artwork specifically for the players and their charities.  His work has been featured on a number of television programs and he’s worked with many different players and sports clubs.  Away from being talented, Kevin-John is simply a great guy.  I’m happy to introduce you to him. Enjoy!

Tyler Ford (@tyler_ford) is one of the many people who was affected when the housing crash happened in 2007 and really took hold in 2008.  Instead of feeling like a victim in that situation he and his wife, Mimi, decided to look at it as the opportunity for them to significantly change their lives.  They decided to go in business for themselves but leveraged network marketing to help hedge some of their risk.  In a few year’s time they’ve grown a great business for themselves that allows them to pursue their other passions in their lives.  Tyler’s a great guy and someone who I look up to given all his work ethic and overall ability to make things happen.

Laurel Kaufman (@LaurelKaufman) is one of the great people who this show has so graciously drawn into my life.  Laurel is an amazingly intelligent person who has her hands on so many great projects.  The passion and execution she brings to her own company, the Los Angeles Consulting Group, or groups like Girls in Tech LA makes them significantly better.  I’m extremely honored to consider Laurel a new friend and I expect she will continue to have major successes in her life.

Jason Sadler, @iwearyourshirt, is one of those entrepreneurs who had a simple but brilliant idea and executed on it successfully.  The simple version of his business is that he wears t-shirts for a different company each day and then creates a lot of different social media content around the brand.  Whether a YouTube video, a tweet, a flickr photo or a live stream session on uStream Jason talks up the brands that buy a day with a community of people that he cares about and they care about him as well.

Glass is one of those pieces of technology that I simply understood the potential usefulness of since the day it was presented to me.  On this episode I get a chance to talk with Glass’ community manager Jennifer Beese, as well as two of the three co-founders, Diego Prats and Oscar Guido.  As I regularly find to be the case, people with great technology tend to be great people as well.  All three of these folks fall in to that category.  Make sure you listen to the entire episode to get a beta invite code so you can access Glass today.
