So what is it exactly that you do?

That is the question I get asked most often.  Not because it is standard, but because people look at my odd business card, and find out that I’ve been couchsurfing for over 3.5 years.  ”And you make money by couchsurfing?”

I do not make money by couchsurfing – I meet people by couchsurfing.  I form relationships with those people, find out what they are about, and find ways that I can help them.

I am a problem solver.  I show you opportunities that you had all along, but didn’t see.  I get you money that’s already on the table. I not only show you how to strengthen your business, but also how to have more fun while doing it!

I keep up on the latest business and marketing information, so you don’t have to. I give you resources to save you time and effort, so you can focus on the things that get you the highest return, and the things you are passionate about.

It doesn’t matter how successful you are, or what you do…  I can make things better. Rather than me telling you what specific tasks I do, these incredible people can tell you what they think. After the recommendations is a special way to help your business!


Lisa Kanarek is a public speaker, a spokesperson for many large brands (such as Brother), a published author (not to be confused with “self published”), a professional organizer, and an entrepreneur.When you are capable of all these things, and have so many ideas, you need focus. I quickly found a few things that Lisa could do to increase her income, do the things she loves, and attract more clients. I’ve also helped her create her product, make her website look professional, and make online shops for her.

Kate Buck Jr. Who manages Social Media for the big names in internet marketing ad a product that was due the next day. All technology was back firing, and there was still content missing. In one massive overnight session I was able to design her an ebook cover, format her book nicely, write additional content for her, and turn it into a 96 page book, which was received very well by the client, and is still used as a basis for some of her work these days.I’ve fixed numerous technical glitches on multiple websites that belong to Kate’s clients. I’ve photographed her TechKaraoke events. I edit various videos for her projects, build some Facebook Fanpages, and have helped her to research new topics and techniques for her products and clients.

Ori and Zappos.com CEO, Tony HsiehWhen I couchsurfed with Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos, their Dance Dance Revolution arcade game in the lobby had broken down.  Replacing this popular attraction at the office would cost about $5,000, and was not exactly in the budget.  I had shown Tony how for less than $1,000 they can have a replacement system with a much larger screen.  All they’d’ need is a netbook, some metal DDR Dance Controllers, a large TV, and an open-source version of the game…thus having more songs to compete in than the original system had.

The front cover of Jason Moffatt's book, Twitter For The Shitter
Right asI was leaving his house in Carlsbad, Jason Moffatt had gotten the design for the cover of his new book, Twitter For The Shitter.  He was very not happy with the look of it, I was quickly able to make him a new coverthat looks great, and is the one that was used. I also dog-sat for him for 6 weeks… although, that’s not too standard of a service.I was also honored to help open JMo’s eyes to travel.

Ori and Elizabeth Bellanti - Brand Manager for Tito's Vodka
When I stayed with Beth Bellanti, who was head of marketing for Tito’s Vodka, I gave her tools to save hours each day on her social media campaign.  I gave her and her assistant specific strategies, which they used so well, that they got compared to Dell in ID University’s article on successful use of social media. Since then I have helped her move from having a job, to owning a brand consulting firm, which she loves. She has more time, more money, and has even hired her husband, so they get to see each other more often, and travel more.

A screen capture of Peche Austin's Website

I have done photography and design for various clients of Elizabeth’s, such as Peche Austin..

Peche’s old design was not classy enough for Beth’s high standards, but thee site admin was not granting access to make the changes.

I created the site on my server (on a Joomla framework), and then, after Elizabeth approved the design, I figured out a way to change the Joomla Theme to the one I created.

The admin was being very unhelpful, and even tampered with the layout one day. I helped the Peche team get new hosting on their own account, and transferred the site there. No admin will ever hold them hostage again.

Sustainable Action - a bike library Suzanne Thomas worked very hard to start her non-profit bicycle library.  They received grants, some of which were budgeted for a website. Further funding would cease if the funds were not used for their designated use. The original designer created a very bland design which would not be a content managements system.  After 6 months, they had still not implemented the site layout, and funding was in danger. I quickly created a layout that all the founders were thrilled with.  I then implemented it quickly with more features than they expected.  They received their next round of funding.
Picture of BeWellWithSue.com Since then I have created the cover and virtual picture of her e-book, a very custom template for her website, I filmed an edited an introduction video for her website, created her logo, made her custom brochures, as well as custom graphics and a logo for her latest project…..

Kathi Burns is a professional organizer. Those that know me tend to know I am a bit disorganized (a messy desk is a sign of a brilliant mind, right?), so you may find it surprising that I was able to provide value for her. Other than the usual marketing, and how to get new clients,, and how to make more money with the products you’ve already created, I also helped her get organized! See what she says:

Since she mentioned it, here’s that animated opening I created for her DVD. The chapter intros are pretty cool too!

When I stayed with the guys at Ground Industries, manufacturers of dirtboards, I was hired to build them a new website.  The old site had hundreds of standalone html pages that had no uniformity, were not optimized, and were a pain to update.The old shopping cart was very plain and definitely did not match the personality of their brand.  I built them a Joomla CMS (Content management system), so the site had a more uniform feel, a more modern look, and fit their brand more.The new site could be updated by anyone, rather than the office’s official designer. With the optimizations I built into the site, and some of the other strategies I used, GroundIndustries.com had jumped from being buried in the search engines, to being on the front page of Google within 3 weeks.

I can’t name the person publicly, but during a very large financial trading product launch, they noticed a small glitch in their website.  They called me to investigate (at 1:30am), and I found out for them that they had been hacked.  I quickly made the site stop passing information to the website in the Ukraine that was sucking up info.  The site also went back to looking the way it was supposed to.  This reminded me of that Sandra Bullock movie, The Net.

Elizabeth Potts Weinstein is a recovering lawyer. I helped her change her look completely to match her brand. Since she is about being fun, and living her truth, I helped her find that with my adventure consulting package. A weekend of consulting, 2 new adventures she’s never done before (ziplining, and drinking sake), and a whole new look. Apparently, she didn’t own any t-shirts since she’s been a lawyer. After I was done with her, she now sells her own t-shirt designs. I also did various graphic design for her- such as this header for her site.Elizabeth Potts Weinstein Header design

When Mike Dillard’s company was overwhelmed with coding and design, I create custom squeeze pages for them, converted their entire DVD library to a digital format that fit on a USB drive in a pretty box, and shot the product photos for that.  I helped their affiliate manager find really unique prizes for their sales contest, and designed a complete catalog and calendar of the launch to include with the affiliate package, and create that extra wow. I created virtual product shots for them, and also designed some of the props used in a spoof movie that they created to engage their members.When their top performers came into town to mastermind and then celebrate in a house boat in lake Austin, I was there to capture every moment.

While I stayed with them (and after), I taught them about social media, as well as various PR campaigns, as well as some other improvements. They have since doubled their recording space, and more than doubled their clients, and have raised the cost since then. They still use the flyers I designed for them in 2007.

I also make pretty pictures- the same creativity goes into problem solving:

In order to take a great and captivating photo, you have to know what is interesting, you need to anticipate action, you need to take in all the details of a scene, including lighting, wind, and what’s about to happen.

 

In order to create a great photoshop image, you have to havea a vision of what you want, so you can figure out what the steps would be to achieve that image.

For great images, you also have to be able to see the unseen potential of everything. That small pebble can become an entire city if you can see its potential, and think of what it would take to go from 1 stage to the next.

Any business problem is the same way- where are you? Where do you want to go? What are the steps that are needed to achieve this?

 

The goal doesn’t even have to sound realistic to regular people.

I do a lot of things for you, but most of all I strive to provide massive value.
