  • Strategic Mindset and Guerrilla Marketing

    in Business

    Peter Druker is quoted saying that "culture will eat strategy for breakfast every time". Although most people in business believe that the key to business success is in the strategy, companies like Apple and Zappos understand that the key to business successes is in the mind-set of an individual and the collective mindset, otherwise known as culture. Strategy is important but there is a sequence as to how to get the best performance and productivity and mindset and culture come first. Today we are going to hear from Ken Courtright on how he translates his powerful mindset into his marketing strategies that have made him a big success and make money for others. 

    A Best Selling Author in 5 Categories, Ken has recently been featured on WLS, WGN, FOX, CBS, A&E, NBC, and most recently on the Biography Channel. Ken’s portfolio of websites includes over 600 revenue-generating websites that are seen more than 100 Million times each year.After 5 years of doubling revenue year after year, in August of 2013, and now again in 2015, Ken’s 23 year old company, was ranked in Inc. Magazine as one of the 1,000 Fastest Growing U.S. Companies. After 2 best-selling books of his own, this past July, Ken was asked to be the new author of the best-selling marketing series: Guerrilla Marketing.
