Jeff Lotman is the founder and CEO of brand licensing agency, Global Icons. You may be asking yourself: what exactly is that? Rest assured, you are not alone. As he puts it, they “operate in an incredibly misunderstood field that no one knows about.”

Except, we see it every day. Remember Flintstones vitamins? You don’t think Hanna Barbera actually created those, do you?

In this episode, Jeff and Chris talk about the world of invisible marketing. Pairing brands with products that you wouldn’t think necessarily go together.

BMW strollers, Porsche sunglasses, Forever 21 and the US Postal Service.

An interesting field that most of us don’t know exists, but after hearing about, seems so obvious.

Tarzan Kay is an expert in email marketing. In fact, it’s her superpower. And one that she's built a successful business with.

In this episode, Tarzan and Chris talk about her journey from jazz pianist, to lawyer, to copywriter and ultimately course creator.

What we love most about this conversation is that Tarzan is so transparent and generous. She talks about how her sheltered upbringing paved the way for a rebellious spirit and doesn’t shy away from talking about money. You’ll get to hear the what, the how and the why of her business and all of it’s revenue.

If you’re interested in copywriting or email marketing, then you’ll love this episode. And if you’re not, that’s okay too. The stories and lessons shared here can apply to any marketing tactic.

Matthew Helderman is the founder and CEO of Buffalo 8, a film and television production company in Santa Monica, CA. He also co-founded the media financing firm, BondIt Media Capital, which is now one of the leading film financing firms around.

He and Chris discuss both the business and creative sides of entertainment, and give you a peek into the world of filmmaking and production. And when we say peek, we mean a nuts and bolts explanation of what it takes to produce a film.

The two talk about how Netflix deals work (e.g. Tiger King), the value of never-ending curiosity and why you should learn how to the play the orchestra, and not just the instrument.

Jone Korpi is an entrepreneur, brand strategist and salesperson who helps creatives get more clients. He’s also 19 years old.

Before you ask yourself, “What does a 19 year old know about business or sales?” We’d like to ask you to save your judgement until after you listen to the episode.

Jone walks Chris through his thinking and sales tactics for identifying and contacting prospective clients on LinkedIn. And he does it step by step. You could literally write it down and try it out yourself. But talking the talk and walking the walk are two different things.

All we can say is that you will certainly learn something new. And that it might be from a 19 year old.
