Topic: What is the Overall Theme of Life Right Now?

Just about every aspect of every business I am working in or with has one common thread... How to create an interesting platform that provides value to a larger subset of the market. Leverage Marketing. Create the interesting content you can as a grass roots entrepreneur/small business, and find a way to partner it with larger companies that don't know their way around the new marketing landscape. Create content, generate an audience, use content as an in with larger groups.

What Does Startup Street Do? When you combine the worlds of start ups and small businesses, with the world of marketing, there is really no telling where things go. Right now, we are trying to push everyone into the realm of video vlogging, as we think it's the best way to express who you are (branding), and thus further hone in on your market. It's an incredible tool for both creating an audience and also partnering up with industry media leaders. www.thestartupstreet.com

What are we doing with Grizzly? Classic turnaround case. The company lost $250k in 2015, and was on the verge of closing it's doors. Came in, rebranded, worked on processes, hired new people, and just set a record for one month sales in only five months time. www.grizzlytargets.com

What is Dropzone Gunner? Again, if you want to stand out, you have to do something that makes people take notice. A combination of Ninja Warrior meets Tough Mudder meets a livefire AR-15 and pistol shooting competition. Literally the most insane event in the nation, with this one being the second time we have done it.
