Welcome to a Innovation Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio. This is Peter Clayton reporting. According to their Web site,  Back Of The House, (which uses acronym BOTH), the company transforms self-employment into a "professionally configured and completely supported company of one, providing a resource that fully integrates the key components of running your own business simply and cost-effectively."

"Our model is based on the fusion of the employer and employee roles and has been designed for anyone who works independently as a freelancer, independent contractor, solopreneur, or as an independent, in some way or fashion, to contract for work as a professionally established business, but without any of the burdens of business ownership."

MarketMyBz.com: One Week, Much More Business

Joining us today in a specialCareer Strategies podcast on TotalPicture Radio is Mary Vonnegut, CEO of MarketMyBz.com. Mary worked in senior marketing and management positions at companies including Ross-Simons and Hanover Direct. For the past fifteen years, she has been a consultant to CEO’s and COO’s of private companies that drive revenue with multi-channel marketing. Mary has launched new businesses, built marketing departments from the ground up and crafted growth strategies in business-to consumer and business-to-business organizations. Mary earned an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA from Middlebury College.

"I believe that the most important thing for a newly independent professional trying to start an advisory business is to just get up and get going before attrition sets in. The other thing that I believe that they need to do and certainly the ones that I know would second this, is they really need to avoid big, out of control marketing expenses, and when you step into the world of marketing, you have so many options and so many people telling you different things that you need to do and so many opportunities to spend money, you don’t know where to begin, you don’t know how to decide what not to do, you don’t know what’s going to really bring you some results and in this case, results mean valuable leads, qualified leads."

When someone buys a pair of TOMS Shoes, a pair is given to a child in need. Over 400,000 pairs of shoes have been given to children under the One for One movement since TOMS launched in 2006.

Welcome to a special Innovation Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio, with Peter Clayton reporting from the HCI Global Summit.

Can the purchasing power of individuals be used to foster the greater good? Can an entrepreneur succeed financially and make the world a better place? The amazing success of TOMS Shoes proves that the answer to both of these questions is a resounding "Yes!" Embodying the entrepreneurial spirit of a new generation, Mycoskie has created five businesses since college. In the Bill Gates Time magazine article, "How to Fix Capitalism," TOMS is cited, and Mycoskie caught the attention of AT&T, who has featured him in a major national ad campaign for the last several months.

Mycoskie is an avid reader and traveler. When not flying around the world participating in "shoe drops," he lives on a sailboat in Los Angeles.
