NOTE: Interview does not contain plagiarized material (we think.)

Earlier this year, in this interview with Doug Simon, President & CEO of digital, social and strategic video communications firm, D S Simon, fired Buzzfeed viral politics editor, Benny Johnson, who hinted at the job he thought was better than his Buzzfeed gig (hint: it’s not a PR job).  He might want to start looking.

Are you looking to break into business but not quite sure where or how to start? Jack Nadel, global leader in specialty advertising and marketing and founder of 12 different companies, speaks with Doug Simon, D S Simon President & CEO, about his new book and video set, The Evolution of an Entrepreneur, Featuring 50 of My Best Tips for Surviving and Thriving in Business, and how you can use his experiences and turn it into dollar signs for yourself.  This guy knows what he’s talking about!  


 

Jack’s VlogViews:

“You can’t solve today’s problems with yesterday’s answers. You have to be motivated to do it. There are a lot of people who don’t have the feeling that they could do it—go into a strange business. But… it ain’t that tough! I started with a high school diploma, and I’ve done business around the world. I even represented the United States at a trade mission, and everything’s worked out fine because I’ve done it. That’s what I’m trying to teach people from what I have already done. It’s not hypothesis; it’s not theory—this stuff works.”

“The odds are, if you have a good idea, someone else has had it before you. I urge people to do their research to see who’s done it, and how successful they’ve been.”

“Know exactly what it is you want to do, and how you’re going to convert that thing that you love to do, into making a profit out of it.”

“I always felt that it’s a good policy to always give a little extra. If I make certain presentations to you, and I say ‘I will do certain things, and I will produce certain results’, I want to make sure that I will exceed those expectations.”

“It all revolves around what I call “the 3 R’s”—relationships, results and rewards.”

Huffington Post editor, Arin Greenwood, speaks with D S Simon President & CEO, Doug Simon, at the Capitol Communicator’s Convergence in Communication Conference, giving her tips on how PR professionals can best approach the media with a story.  She also has a great anecdote about a cat running for the U.S Senate.


Arin’s VlogViews:

“I’m open to a variety of sorts of pitches. I like getting emails from people who know my work, and come across stories, people, cats, topics that they think I might be interested in.”

“I don’t mind being approached on Facebook; you can call if you have to, but I prefer not hearing from people on the phone. I prefer email or Facebook.”

“Facebook is a fantastic tool. When I’m looking to see if this is something that I’m interested in writing about, I’ll look on Facebook and see what sort of presences there are. Is this something that people are interested in? Are there photos that could go along with this that’ll make it more interesting and engaging for our readers?”
