Rank #1: Danny David - Digital and Branding Strategist

Podcast cover
Read more

My guest today is Danny David. Danny is a proven marketing and branding expert in the sports and entertainment industry. He currently works with professional athletes.

Danny’s vast experience in digital media and brand development is one of the reasons why I was so interested in speaking with him. He began working with talent on management and marketing when he was just 18 and the social media era was first beginning to boom. Danny attended The Ohio State University and was able to network and see up close what an athlete's life really entails and how there is massive potential for them to capitalize on their brand given the platform they have. He then started working for VaynerSports, at the time a newly formed sports marketing company, as their Director of Business Development. Now as the Managing Partner of Fifth Down Marketing, Danny is just now hitting his stride in helping his clients realize and maximize their brand potential.

I would like to thank Danny for our late night chat and sharing his wisdom towards traveling and digital marketing.

Rank #4: Courtney Rich - Cake Mom

Courtney Rich is my guest on today’s podcast. It was great hearing from Courtney how she has built up her cake business while raising her children and being a wife to her husband. I enjoyed hearing some stories of travel and how she and her husband are able juggle their work schedules, kid’s school and activities schedule and date night schedules. I never would have thought, prior to my podcast, about needing to travel for work because of a bustling cake business. Her cool designs and cake tool kits are very practical and make cake design much easier. She also works at a culinary art center in her hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah so if you are ever in the area look her up and see if you can take one of her classes.

Courtney has a great social media presence for her fans and friends so make sure to follow her and see when she is visiting your neighborhood. See the links below for all of her social media contacts.

Rank #5: Marcus Peterson - Prove Yourself Right

Podcast cover
Read more

My guest on today’s The Travel Wins podcast is Marcus Peterson. Marcus is an NFL wide receiver, model and entrepreneur. His upbringing in Inglewood California at a very small school made him realize his need to work hard and appreciate everything that happens to him is for a reason. He went on to play football in college at Seton Hill and then traveled to England where he received his MBA. While living overseas he realized how big the world is and that it doesn’t revolve around the US. We also discuss his apparel business, MP Motivational Brand, and what his future holds for him after his football career is done.

I love the fact that he is using motivational phrases for his apparel. Anyone that is sharing positive vibes to the world needs to be recognized. 

What The "MP" Brand Represents

"MP" Motivational Brand Apparel, represents for anyone who has ever been over looked, told they couldn’t achieve something, they aren't good enough, or underestimated. Understanding that there are and will be times in our lives where we will be overlooked and counted out but we can never lose faith or site of our goals. No matter what industry we are in, we all have a story of challenges we endure to achieving success. This notion provides the opportunity to wear our struggles through apparel to ignite our dreams in overcoming the "No’s" in life to becoming living proof of YES! 

“MP” apparel is a great concept to remind others and ourselves that when we recognize our “Why” & "Purpose" in life having control of the ending result and can NEVER give up on our dreams. Understanding, that whatever happens, a human being does not have the last word for on our destiny, God does.

Rank #7: Big Sandy Flyin Rite

Podcast cover
Read more

Big Sandy is my guest today on The Travel Wins podcast. Rockabilly Hall of Fame inductee, Big Sandy and his band the Fly Rite Boys has been touring the world since the early 90’s. Robert “Big Sandy” Williams started his music playing career in the mid-80’s and his touring career started in the early 90’s. Almost 30 years later and he has played in multiple countries and most states in the US. We talk about the differences in traveling in the 90’s without technology and traveling nowadays.

Big Sandy and The Fly-Rite Boys have no slowing down in them as they get ready to start a European tour next week then coming home to play in 10 different states this summer. 35+ shows, 9 countries and 10 states this summer alone made Big Sandy a great interview for business travel.

BIG SANDY BACKGROUND

"Twenty-five years, hundreds of thousands of miles, and over 3,000 live performances; what a dream it's been!" said Robert "Big Sandy" Williams. "When I first got together for a garage rehearsal with a group of musician friends in the spring of 1988 in Anaheim, California, I never imagined that I would someday be celebrating the silver anniversary of the rocking little band that formed that afternoon"

Indeed, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys are beloved by many, with fourteen albums of undiluted joyful music pulled from rockabilly, rock & roll, honky-tonk, rhythm & blues, soul and doo-wop. What A Dream It's Been, out August 27 on Cow Island Music, is a collection of the band's favorite original numbers - all acoustic, reinterpreted with fresh new arrangements, rhythms, and instrumentation.

"Here I am, looking back at a wild ride that has taken us around the world countless times and put us in front of national television and radio audiences," said Big Sandy. He and the band have made three appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, featured on NPR's Fresh Airwith Terry Gross, as well as All Things Considered with Melissa Block. "Putting together this new record has brought back a flood of memories. It is our way of looking back at everything that has led us to where we are now. I feel like we're sounding better than ever and experimenting musically. While it's a reflection of our past, this album is really a hint of things to come."

All of the albums are represented here, and the new arrangements happened organically. "Often during sound checks and rehearsals, we'll get to messing around with songs," Big Sandy explained. "I Know I've Loved You Before was originally recorded as a slow, jazzy number. But one night at band practice after a few drinks, I started strumming the song with ska upstrokes and tried singing it in a more soulful, rocksteady style. The rest of the band fell in together and it started to sound like something that (Jamaican legend) Ken Boothe might have done. We all knew in that instant that we had to record the song that way as soon as possible."

"The last song on the album and title track, What A Dream It's Been, (a duet with acclaimed voice actress/Grammy Award winning vocalist Grey DeLisle) is a love song, but not in the conventional sense. As Big Sandy explained, "I wrote and recorded this song in 1998 after a couple of the Fly-Rite Boys told me they had to move on. Unsure if I would be able to continue on without them, this song sums up and pays tribute to the wonderful times that we had together."  

Despite Big Sandy's uncertainty about the band's future at that time, a new generation of Fly-Rite Boys emerged. Performing on these recordings are Jeff West on bass and harmony vocals, Joe Perez on drums and backup vocals, and Ashley Kingman, a 20-year Fly-Rite veteran, on guitar and mandolin.

He also has background that includes military intelligence, Special Agent for the U.S. State Department Diplomatic Security Service, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

BIO

Since I started publishing my own books years ago, people have been asking when and if I was going to do audio versions… well that day has come! The first book in audio is The Simple Life Guide To RV Living: The Road to Freedom and the Mobile Lifestyle Revolution. 

My next book The Simple Life Guide To Financial Freedom will also be available in audio (see the cover below). I will try my best to get the remainder of my books in audio as soon as possible. But as a lot of you know I do a lot of the work on my books myself. That means there is no publishing company paying for everything, just me, which can delay things at times. The big upside, is it allows me to control my content and own 100% of everything I do. 

A quick update: There are a lot of exciting changes coming to The Simple Life, so make sure to sign up for my newsletter if you are reading this on the blog. The Simply Gary podcast is slated to come out in September, I’m excited to get going on that and have some really interesting guests talking about all things related to living the simple life. I want my podcast to be a place of learning new things and stretching our imaginations, as we float around on this rock in an infinite universe.

5 for Friday with Tanya Stanfield. Tanya is the CEO and Founder of Road Warrior Strong. RWS is a fitness concierge built for business travelers. Sounds like a perfect person to speak with for The Travel Wins podcast. Tanya shares why she started RWS and how it keeps her busy. 

Don’t forget to catch the full episode on Monday.

Here’s a quick quote from her website

“No matter what my career threw at me, I always made time for working out and eating well. I even trained for my second marathon while working three jobs seven days per week, and never missed a training session. So when I began traveling for work, I thought staying fit on the road would be a piece of cake.

Easy, right?

I saw other consulting colleagues' health crumble due to stress, horrible airport food, lack of sleep, and weight gain. But I was convinced that wasn’t going to happen to me. So before my first business trip, I spent over an hour on TripAdvisor viewing hotel fitness room photos to make sure I found one that would suit my needs. Needless to say, after all of the time spent doing that and with all of the real work I still had to do, meal planning went straight out the window.”

TANYA STANFIELD QUICK BIO

My career has been a series of adventures and "firsts" that have dropped me in the middle of chaos.  Shortly after finishing my degree at the University of Wisconsin, I began my career in London, England and acted as a spokesperson for Homes for Islington - the first American to do so. Upon my return to the States, I took over marketing for a small digital firm in Milwaukee and later, at a startup managed by Kellogg School of Management and McCormick School of Engineering (Northwestern University). After freelancing for a few years, I made the leap into corporate America where I became the first regional business development manager for a mid-sized consulting firm, expanded the firm's business development and marketing capabilities while managing and motivating teams. 

In my free time, I travel as much as possible, catch live music events, and fit in as much physical activity as possible both inside and outside the gym. In fact, I'm a three-time marathoner and recently launched a fitness hub for business travelers - Road Warrior Strong.
