Daniel at Emmys HQDaniel Washbrook
Daniel has been working down south of the border. Asked for an update, he shared “nothing new with me but Emmys nominations came out last week so was in Los Angeles for that. About a million people hit the site that day. We also hit the Six Flags while we were there too.”

BradBrad Kynoch
Quote from Brad: “You’ve surely heard of email auto-responders like MailChimp and AWeber. And maybe you’ve heard of more powerful small business automation platforms like InfusionSoft and ONTRAPORT (formerly Office AutoPilot). Well, Brad is recently one of only 50 ONTRAPORT Certified Consultants in the world, well-versed in identifying, mapping out, and implementing automation systems for small businesses. If you know an entrepreneur or business that’s overwhelmed and strapped for time (wait, do you know one that isn’t?!), give him a shout. And he’ll speak in YOUR words, not geekspeak. 🙂 http://worthee.co
