Co-founder and president of Operation Mothership, a group of creative service companies: Laughing Samurai ( Branding agency ), Twelve21 Gallery (an Orlando art gallery), Ananda Marketing (a yoga marketing agency).
I've spent far too much time thinking about planning, making lists and GTD in my life. It's made me good at organizing a large amount of work and getting it done effectively. If you're looking at a system or a piece of productivity software, I've probably tried it. If you just want less things to do, I can help you figure out which thing you should stop doing.
I've been running an art gallery in a town that hates art for almost three years. I started the gallery because no one was doing the types of things I wanted to see in Orlando. I know very little about the real art world, but I know a whole lot about getting a community going around an artsy project.
I've logged at least 20,000 hours talking to people trying to get them to make a purchase in both product and service driven industries. I can help you analyze your sales process and figure out where your areas for improvement.
Interested in understanding your dreams? I'm not talking about the ones you have during the day. I'm talking about that place your mind goes at night while you're sleeping. I've been working with my dreams for years and can help you develop a system to get more out of your dreams. Why would you want to do this? Call me. Let's talk.
I'm responsible for search marketing and development at Laughing Samurai. I've picked up a few tricks along the way, but my main focus is always going to be on developing good content and then organizing it so it's found easily.
What is a brand? How can you define it? I've helped numerous companies define themselves at Laughing Samurai and I'm interested in being a part of as many branding definition parties as I can get invited too.
Thoughtful, experienced and well worth our time.
Nice call...I hope Ben considers NoteBLOX for his organization.
Benjamin listened and explained with patience. He suggested links for me to learn more. My first time using Clarity. I really think I will benefit from this service. I'll definitely be calling Benjamin again.
It was a short call, but Benjamin gave me some good ideas to think about and afterwards forwarded some suggestions for other resources to look up.
Very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions. Not only was he easy to talk to - he did a great job of bottom lining the information I was looking for throughout the conversation. I expect to be reaching out again for future coaching!
