eSAX Podcast featuring Catherine Fair of Rhapsody Strategies

On this episode Jarrod is joined by Catherine Fair, Business Coach with Rhapsody Strategies. Jarrod and Catherine discuss the importance of being clear, being organized and the common traits among successful entrepreneurs. 

ABOUT Catherine Fair: Have you ever thought you were meant for more? Does the idea haunt you?

After having worked with business owners for years, Catherine is very aware of the amazing potential they have. Unfortunately, more often than not, a business owner is bogged down in the day-to-day operations of their business and in the seemingly constant need to be “putting out fires”​. What if you as a business owner, had a clear vision of where your business was going, not just in the next 3 days but the next 3 years (or even 10 years)? What if you had a team that supported that vision? What if you had solid directives to accomplish the sales, production or customer service needed to take you to that vision? How much happier and more successful could you be? THAT is what business coaching can do for you!

If you want to see if business coaching is a fit for you, drop her a line via email and let’s get together for a coffee to chat. She would be happy to help you understand just how impactful business coaching can be for you.

Business owners rock!

eSAX Podcast featuring Jesse Perreault of Car Loans Canada

On this episode Jarrod is joined by Jesse Perreault, previously VP of Marketing at Car Loans Canada (CoverageCorp Dealer Solutions) who brings his digital marketing background into the automotive industry to help create a new marketing style and build better relationships.

ABOUT Jesse Perreault: For most of my life he never really fit into the world around him. He grew up in a small town as a gamer, computer geek & as an introvert.

From a young age Jesse became fascinated with business and people…but was just too timid to do anything about his curiosities. So he decided to find a mentor and his famous words “You will never be comfortable until you become uncomfortable” stuck with him. He realized that he had to associate being uncomfortable with progress and growth moving forward.

That paradigm shift was the catalyst for him to start his first business when he was 15 with a rusty lawnmower and some good ol’ door knocking. With a passion for technology, he soon got involved in numerous online ventures & explored many industries on a mission to discover his core passion. Helping others succeed in their business by leveraging technology is his purpose.

Over the last 10 years, Jesse has started many different businesses online. He has studied his failures closely and has learned so much over this period of time.

After getting various designations (LLQP, OTL) and exploring everything from insurance to network marketing, he always found myself back where he started – Analyzing and growing businesses using technology.

Digital Marketing is getting more advanced than ever with data analysis & machine learning algorithms & he loves it! It is this exponential innovation that keeps him going, combining data/analytics with core marketing strategies is extremely powerful. It is satisfying when working with such diverse clientele and being able to deliver a consistent ROI for Medium & Enterprise companies around the world.
