I will be doing a major media push in Print Media, Radio and TV in coming months to promote my new company, Hovey’s Knives of China, new book, Ideas for New Businesses: Finding ideas for your million or billion dollar business and business consulting activities. Some of the radio materials have already been recorded such as two segments with Ric Bratton’s “This Week America” which is a news-format show originating in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, carried by 18 radio stations throughout the country.
Bratton was exposed to two of the gag ads that I used on my Radio Show, “Hovey’s Outdoor Adventures.” These were for Misty Mange, The hair-care product that you and your pet can share and SIN, Inc.’s red white and blue turkey made from the best of “coal tars, petroleum by-products and agricultural waste” for your holiday enjoyment. The Skype video recording may be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4CJWDhthq0
If you wish to contact me to discuss your ideas for starting a new business send me a description of what subject areas you want to discuss and I will reply. If I think that I can help you advance your plan we can set of a time for an hour-long conference call where I will discuss your concept with you. I will follow up with a written report about what we considered for a fee of $200. I can reasonably discuss consulting businesses, outdoor-related businesses, inexpensive promotion methods and locating a suitable foreign partner.
I recorded both shows at my writing station in my office after doing a mucking out. As one might suspect, I had accumulated years worth of print photos, 35mm slides and old printed-out stories and photos that needed to be cleared out and recording the Skype video was a good-enough excuse.
As commercial items the old prints and slides are now nearly useless. Few of the editors that I write for will accept prints or slides, and those who still do will have them only if they are the photos of some historic event that I reference in the text. Authors have limited use of these old materials when they write their books and want to show some photos of their former selves or activities. I have already done that with my books and E-books on bowfishing, crossbow hunting and muzzleloading, and can no longer justify hanging on to these dusty folders of long-gone life events.
