Coincidentally, Jeremy’s interview from London with host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart comes on the very day that Jeremy is officially launching his latest venture – Otro, a global digital club for soccer fans that is designed from the ground up to be a Punk Rock business.

The Long-Shot Bid of XYZBuys to Grab a Meaningful Share of Online Retailing

An Insightful Conversation with Dan Thomas, VP Marketing

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Can two entrepreneurs with limited previous online retail experience take a meaningful chunk of business away from Amazon?

The concept of XYZBuys is a good one: to serve as an “online mall” with Amazon, Best Buy, and dozens of other leading retailers as so-called tenants. While consumers may be drawn to the mall by one anchor store, in theory they’ll buy from other retailers – big and small, while they are already there.

Will it work? 

The odds are against it. But after interviewing Dan Thomas, VP Marketing, host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart says that XYZBuys’ audacious business model does offer innovative ideas that any online retailer or service provider may want to adopt for themselves.

Drew French, Founder of Your Pie, is the ‘Mark Zuckerberg’ of the Fast Casual Pizza Industry

An Entrepreneurial Aphorism: If You Want to Succeed, Look to Innovate in a Market That is Already Crowded

[Listen and Profit Now™]

In a very, very crowded market for pizza restaurants, Drew French discovered the recipe to stand out from the crowd – offering made-to-order pies, baked in brick ovens, using a wide variety of fresh ingredients, hand-tossed doughs, and served in just four minutes.

Drew’s Athens, GA-based Your Pie, launched a decade ago, now has 58 locations in 19 states, with nearly 60 additional locations in development.

Drew is widely credited with pioneering the now-popular and highly competitive “fast casual” pizza concept. The distinction is all the more impressive, says host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, given that Drew only recently turned 35 years old.

“A well-known adage says, if you want something done, ask a busy person to do it,” Dean observes. “Perhaps, in a similar vein, Drew French and Your Pie embody the entrepreneurial concept: If you want to succeed, look to innovate in a market that is already crowded. At least, when you launch, you’ll know there are plenty of ready prospects to win over.”

Off-the-Grid, Off-the-Record, and Off-the-Charts Excellent: Canada’s Fireside (Business) Conference

Co-Founder Daniel Levine on Why the Wait List to Attend is So Crowded and How to Jump to the Front of the Line

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Business conferences are big business.

The World Economic Forum in Davos, the Milken Institute Global Conference, and the Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference are among the largest and best-known of the lot.

By comparison, the annual Fireside Conference – held at a remote retreat a 3 ½-hour drive from Toronto –  is a puppy; but a best-in-show gathering at that, attracting a small group of top innovators, thought leaders, and investors in the entrepreneurial universe.

Fireside’s co-founder, Daniel Levine, tells host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart just why every year Fireside gets more than ten times the number of applicants than it accepts – and the secret to having what it takes to land a coveted invite to the off-the-grid, off-the-record, and off-the-charts excellent meeting of some of the brightest minds in business.
