Brandon Uttley – Go For Launch

Guest Intro:

Brandon used to run a web design company and a digital agency and now he’s an entrepreneur. He has a great little story about how he got there which had hiccups along the way. Brandon and I reminisce a little bit about being in business and podcasting as well as some tools we use. This is a good show and I hope you enjoy it.

Brandon is the Founder and CEO of Go For Launch, an educational and marketing resource for entrepreneurs. He is also the author of a new #1 Amazon bestselling book, Pod Castaway: My Search for Podcasting Fame and Fortune. Prior to his current role, Brandon co-founded and was CEO of Command Partners, a digital marketing agency. He was also the Co-founder and President of Carbonhouse, Inc., a nationally recognized web design firm. Brandon became an entrepreneur after a successful career working with several top marketing and PR firms.

  • Getting intentional about starting a business
  • The power of having mentors
  • Good project management system for small business
  • The challenges of being a solopreneur
