Two Queens – Infomercial that is..!

After 15 years of friendship who would have thought the two “Infomercial Queens” with the same name, spelled exactly the same, would be on a radio show that reaches around the world?   Wendi Rogers has done it all and she is on the phone today for 50 minutes!  Wendi and I go way back that’s for sure.  But, we also share very similar life’s experiences.  In fact, we were both broke – both emotionally and financially – back in 1998 when we first met.  It’s often said that the infomercial business is tainted, I argue that it went through growing pains, but Wendi sees it differently.  Take a trip back in time to the “Wild West ” days of the infomercials when MER’s where through the roof, greed was not necessarily “good” and lives were changed forever.  Wendi Rogers Geisenger is married to Adam {Jay} Geisenger who was on C Spot Talk back in 2012 and together created some really fun and profitable campaigns.  Google Doc Bottom’s A Spray and the infamous “Pocket Chair.”

Alicia Coppola & Gracefully Gone

In-studio today is actress Alicia Coppola who has just launched her first book “Gracefully Gone.”   Alicia is an actress, mother, wife and passionate, raw and authentic author who tells her story of losing the love of her life, her father.  Creatively compiled and told through actual memoirs of her and her father’s, it’s a story of a young girl coming of age while losing her father to brain cancer.   One could call it an easy enjoyable read.  I call it the ultimate consumer experience. And that, in marketing, is the golden egg.

But, bringing a book (product) to market is a huge challenge even for a celebrity.  A chance meeting in the bathroom of Fantastic Sam’s was key to Gracefully Gone being available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble today.   For those of you thinking about writing a book, any kind of book,  self-publishing AND bringing it to market, this is the right spot for you!

Just Me Again!

Driving back from Las Vegas I had 1 minute to spare as I ran into the studio. Peter had put certainty into the universe as I hit traffic with only 30 minutes to spare before I had to start the show. I made it. Just on the heals of the Licensing Expo (LIMA), I totally abuse these 50 minutes, and Peter’s kind ears, to pontificate, opine, ridicule, obsess, and release 3 days of pent-up energy. I met with the CMO of Sea World, the wonderful super cool tribe of Coca Cola and had one question only for Gwenyth Paltrow, “How does one get Gooped.” Peter, thanks for being such a great listener!

Passion & Love Etched in Stone!

I am so blessed to have two of the most creative people I have ever met on my show today – Jay and Crystal Nadeau of the Nadeau Collection, .  The most inspiring young couple that took a passion for artisan tile work, and created a world renown brand.  This is a true entrepreneurial heartwarming story of a couple that complement each other and make this world a better place.  Here is a tidbit about their creations, together.  www.nadeaucollection.com

Translating design influences from throughout the world and across time, the Nadeau Collection celebrates the artistic heritage of ancient and indigenous cultures, as well as modern Asian, Indian, European, African, and South American folk and fine art traditions. The Nadeau design team eagerly explores these sources for new patterns while experimenting with size, scale, and selection of stone and glass. The end results are designs that enable the natural beauty of these tiles to complement the unique character of your home.

Every show brings something new to the curious about bringing a product to market even if that product is you, and today it couldn’t have been more true.

DOWNTOWN LA, ITALY, ART & THE LEFT BRAIN

My guest in-studio today is Anyes Galleani, www.galleani.com, as a visual artist/photographer living in downtown Los Angeles since 1992, Anyes put the “art” in L.A.’s downtown “Art District” and is one of a handful of preeminent local visual artists.    Over the years she created photomontages (before photoshop), collages, digital art, videos and paintings.  Her evocative work has been featured in dozens of magazines, venues and exhibits and has been complementing residential and commercial and corporate environments for the past 15 years.

You might be asking how does a visual artist fit into the show’s core topic of “Bringing a product to market even if that product is you”? Well, artists (including actors, writers, musicians, etc.) lament about their creativity and passion, but are not very good nor interested in business and marketing.  This can be a problem!   Anyes is not only a remarkable visual artist but her left brain works too for business & marketing.  It should have been a “good thing” but it was distracting…tune-in to find out how she tamed here left brain and tackled her personal fears.  This is a must listen because metaphorically speaking we are all  hanging on a wall open for criticism.

Anyes was born and raised on the Italian Riviera and came to California in the 1980’s to study film and photography – she soon found herself photographing celebrities and off on an amazing journey in life.  I’ve been lucky to be part of that journey for the past 17 years.   There is no one quite like Anyes Galleani!
