In this episode of The Struggling Entrepreneur, we provide an interview with Tim Bourquin, the founder and CEO of TNC New Media (for the New Media Expo), as well as the leading co-host of the Podcast series called The Podcast Brothers.
As you will hear in this episode, Tim’s constant restlenessness for creativity, independence and “pushing the limit of some things new” drove him from what could have been a satisfying career in law enforcement to the world of being an entrepreneur.
From the early days of Internet-based “day-trading” of securities and the stock market, to the beginnings of podcasting for the Triathlon-bound athletes, and finally to the business of hosting and implementing Events, Business and Conferences — you’ll see the determination and focus of someone who was willing to invest, so that he could get the right offering to the right audience with the best value. And this is what started the Podcast and Portalbe Media Expo, which has now become the New Media Expo.
Making its debut in Las Vegas (August 14-17, 2008) and now it its 4th year, this conference provides education, training and networking value for paid conference attendees. Also, there is a free element of education and exhibits for the beginner or hobbyist (or those just plain interested in Podcasting, video, blogs, Social Media or New Media). And the multiple free and fee marketing tactics that Tim uses to provide value for the customers show that he can integrate them into his Events Business for the Expo.
You will also learn how Tim had reached the “gold at the end of the rainbow” for Entrepreneurs–by selling one of his businesses for a profit.
