    Is ROI Really What You Are Looking For?

    in Marketing

    Is ROI Really What You Are Looking For? There’s a lot of talk about return on investment as a marketing metric…but ROI is inherently flawed for campaign-based marketing. A new look at ROI might be just the remedy we need to build a case for content marketing. 

    Everyone needs to show a return on their marketing investment - ultimately - but content strategies often require time and momentum. ROI isn't an overnight metric that you can measure each time you click publish... and more often than not it's a combined metric over a collection of content that you're producing.

    Modern Day Troubadour Andrew Landers Finds Sacred in the Ordinary, Fans Respond

    in Indie Music

    Andrew Landers has spent 2 decades playing his narrative in the unsung Americana Folk genre, a colorful brainy singer songwriter who shares the stage with a myriad of national artists. With 11 records to his name, he is the epitome of what a modern day traveling corduroy storytelling troubadour sounds and feels like.              

    Ed Rowell (Author & Speaker) "Andrew is not at all that hard to figure out. He's just a neo-hippy poet musing on theology and sociology from a post-modern perspective. He simply finds the sacred in the ordinary, the humor in the serious, and the tranquil in the noise that surrounds us all." 

    Andrew lives in rainy Olympia WA with 6 amazing kids, 1 pretty wife and a 72 VW Bus. He digs the St. Louis Cardinals and believes the Yankees suck! He's fully convinced that Barney “the purple messiah” is the reason dinosaurs went instinct and has a codependent relationship with his 3 acoustic guitars named CASH, Dylan, and Guthrie.  

    Max Allen Collins (author of "Road To Perdition) "Andrew is the real deal - soulful, unpretentious storyteller who tells it from the heart. His music is as profound as it is entertaining."

    Andrew says it like this: "Music is my compass, it’s how I see the world and long to see it better. The songs that I'm singing every night are the songs that I need — not to learn how to play, but to learn how to live better.”

    A live show with Andrew Landers and or Mainstreet Struggleville is a medicinal musical collide of Shawn Mullins writing style, Tommy Emmanuel’s acoustic guitar prowess, the soulful bluesy influence of Stevie Ray Vaughan, the jam bandy feel of Phish and the feel good vibe of Bob Marley. http://www.andrewlanders.com

    Orlando’s Pizzeria & Birreria Ristorante

    in Current Events

    Our guest this morning is Orlando Mule of the new restaurant Orlando’s Pizzeria & Birreria Ristorante located in Redondo Beach.

    From a young age Orlando loved to watch people prepare food.  His Italian grandmother, his mom and the chefs that worked at his family restaurant inspired him and made him eager to start cooking. 

    Orlando’s father was a butcher and owned a family butcher shop/Italian grocery store. Later, he opened two restaurants Orlando le Roi du Sous-Marin and Trattoria del Buon Gustaio. Orlando worked in both establishment’s weekends and summers. 

    After two years of school in a business commerce program at Dawson College, he decided to pursue a managerial position in the restaurant and try out as Chef. 

    Now, with 26 years of experience in the food service, Orlando brings his successful recipes to the South Bay.  As the Chef /owner of Orlando’s Pizzeria & Birreria Ristorante, he is always trying to refine his palette.  He enjoys learning from different cultures and meeting interesting people who have a passion for cooking - this makes it a pleasure to go into work every day.

    So this morning, we’re going to hear how Orlando landed in the South Bay of LA via Canada and Italy. FYI, I’ve already eaten at Orlando’s so I can speak from experience. I also have a reservation for our annual Christmas Lunch with my Italian class.

    How Are We to Inject Gratitude into the Spiritual Void Thanksgiving Has Become?

    in Spirituality

    How grateful and exicted are turkeys for Thanksgiving to you think? :)... 

    We've rather largely lost our way, bit by bit, with a myopic fascination with food as the defining moment of what now consititues our Thanksgiving haven't we?  

    But, this deficit of heart is beginning to take its toll in the sensibilites of more and more people as they reflect how unfilling this holiday can end up being at the end of the day when our guests can't leave quickly enough after the food has been eaten. 

    I've been in some homes where the feast is more like an in-home fast food feast and in a blink of the eye the cooks are abandoned, the relationship time together goes up in a puff of tail--pipe smoke as the cars speed away to the malls. Anti-climatic, indeed!

    Days of preparation. Feasting. And everyone sticking their face into their cell phones and rushing off to the nearest and biggest sale of their desires for getting something for a deal. And there the chefs and company experience an anticlimatic event. 

    The heart of visiting and sharing our company, stories, and being drifts away from the hearth of our homes and enters the competition for goods. Is that becomeing an unappealing feeling-experience for you... more empty, dissapointing, useless than something to celebrate and something more along the lines of a hefty investment of time with a disproprtionate return (ROI sucks)? 

    When the preparation far outweighs the event, it fails to excite and satisfy in the same deligthful manner. Let's visit a warm hearth together and consider ways we can return our families to a Thanksgiving that feeds our belly and our Souls!

    Join us, Sharon Quinn and Will Gable
