Kim Kaupe (Ep.61) - Co-Founder, The Superfan Company

Episode 61 features Co-Founder of The Superfan Company, Kim Kaupe. I have been following Kim's content online for a couple years and was pleased to get a chance to meet her at the Next Gen Summit in June of 2019 when she was there as a speaker. This was an interesting interview that follows her journey from childhood through present day.


Some topics we discussed were:


  • Her goal of working for a magazine
  • Serendipitously meeting her Co-Founder
  • Keeping their jobs while starting the business
  • Keeping relationships 
  • Getting into Walmart
  • Her Shark Tank experience
  • …and much more


If you all haven't had the chance to follow Kim online I'd suggest to do that below as she has a great perspective on business and entrepreneurship. If you need a starting point, check out her "Coffee with Kim" series on here website here -> https://www.kimkaupe.com/coffeewithkim

About Kim


While Kim has not yet mothered a human baby, she delivered ZinePak—now The Superfan Company—into the world in January 2011 after holding positions at Conde Nast and Fathom Communications. She has been thrilled, killed, and amazed by her first few years of entrepreneurship and is so proud of what The Superfan Company has established in past seven years. From successes in retail with Walmart and Cracker Barrel to working with world class tours for legends like Paul McCartney and Bob Dylan to stints on TV shows like ABC's Shark Tank, the highs have been SO high… and the lows well, gray hair is cool now right?


From Katy Perry and ACE Universe Comic-Con to Logic and the New York Mets, Kim has had more than 100 amazing clients throughout the years and no, she cannot pick a favorite client...she loves them all (somewhat equally!). 


She enjoys sharing the highs and lows of entrepreneurship on her social media, along with her adventures, travel, and friends (much to their dismay, often yelling, "Do not put that on your Instagram! Well unless I look good and then you can.")

Dale Dupree (Ep.60) - Founder, The Sales Rebellion

Was really cool to have Dale Dupree of The Sales Rebellion stop by for episode 60 of the Podcast. I've been following Dale for a couple years and since we had so many mutual connections and I always enjoy reading his thoughts on sales, I had to have him on to share his journey and knowledge. This was a really interesting interview where we go all over the place talking about his new company, what he learned from his Dad, when he was touring in a band, and much more. Definitely think you all will enjoy some of Dale's thoughts and his perspective on not only sales but life.


Dale also talks about two former Podcast guests on this episode that i'll link up below:

About Dale:


To understand my Sales Rebellion, first you need to hear and acknowledge the role my Father played in my life. His legacy is one of integrity, perseverance, and service to others. I spent my life in the shadow of one of the greatest men to ever walk this earth and I am eternally grateful for his amazing example. I realized my calling in the Technology world through his business and also just how much fun I had being in a sales role. Copiers and Printers are pretty boring and usually not top of mind, they are also the most important piece of hardware in the office when they break, am I right? I enjoyed the challenge behind making them a fun piece of your business puzzle.


in 2017 I moved on from the company I had represented most of my career, after my Dad’s passing (see my shared articles for the saddest story I have ever told). I stayed in the copier industry for 2 more years before creating my Sales Rebellion. I have gone into sales training and develop for both individual contributors and entire sales organizations.


In 2019, The Sales Rebellion was born. My conquest of changing the game has expanded beyond my role as an individual contributor in the sales world, as The Copier Warrior. Now I am teaching the masses how to choose legendary for their sales career. No longer will the mediocre rule throughout our profession. It is time for a Sales Rebellion to rise.


I believe in Radically Educating your prospects on a first touch. I believe in Responses, good or bad, but never indifferent. I believe your Territory is your Community, we enable Sales Wanderers. I believe your Pipeline is Alive. I believe people are more than just a signature for your deal. I believe in fellowship over negotiations.

Rich Keller (Ep.59) - Founder, S.C.O.R.E | Motivational Speaker

Episode 59 is on fire with Motivational Speaker and Personal Brand Guru, Rich Keller. Whoa nelly this is such a great episode! I got to hear Rich speak at the Next Gen Summit in New York and had to get him on the Podcast. Such an incredible positive dude and definitely the type of people that I love having on this Podcast and the people that I enjoy jamming with.

Building a StoryBrand: Clarify Your Message So Customers Will Listen by Donald Miller


About Rich:


MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER & PERSONAL BRANDING GURU



Catalyst

This is my core value…in ‘One Word’.


Maverick

My Wharton MBA opened doors to the corporate world; being a risk-taker let me ditch it. I have the vision of a creative and the analytics of an executive—a rare combination of right-brain and left-brain that delivers results.


Survivor

My cancer—then my wife’s—didn’t break me, it redirected me. Paying-it-forward, not an award or title, now defines my success. My Survivor buff symbolizes that triumph.


Inspirational

I energize and create a sense of direction and purpose for every life I touch. Inspiration is my middle name (fine, it’s Scott).


Marketer

I spent 25 years snacking on Godiva chocolates, Chips Ahoy! cookies and Planters peanuts. Oh, and I crafted their identities, too. Now I’m hungry to help young adults uncover the power of their personal brands.


Connector

I bring people together to share experiences, connect thoughts, debate ideas and develop solutions. My energy (and bright t-shirts) light up a room.

Nicolas Vandenberghe (Ep. 58) - Co-Founder | CEO, Chili Piper

Episode 58 features 4x Founder Nicolas Vandenberghe currently of Chili Piper, a buyer enablement platform for Sales & Marketing teams to better connect with their potential future clients.

Neil Pasricha (Ep.56) - 6x Author | TED Speaker | Host of 3 Books Podcast

Episode 56 is on fire with Neil Pasricha, Author, Speaker, Podcast Host, etc. I heard Neil speak at an event early in 2019 and made a point to reach out to him to get him on the Podcast. Was so appreciate for him taking some time out to share his story. I don't think conversations around happiness and fulfillment in life happen as much and it is just assumed that you'll be happy if you continue on some set path society puts you on at an early age. I'm glad Neil is touring the world to share a different message and help people rethink what happiness really should be.


See below on a lot of random notes and links about Neil and from the show...

About Neil:


My name is Neil Pasricha and I think, write, and speak about living intentionally.


All of my current work focuses under the themes of gratitude, happiness, failure, resilience, and trust.


I’m the the author of six books including: The Book of Awesome, a spinning rolodex of simple pleasures based on my 100-million-hit, award-winning blog 1000 Awesome Things, The Happiness Equation, originally written as a 300-page love letter to my unborn son on how to live a happy life, Awesome Is Everywhere, an interactive introduction to guided meditation for children, and How To Get Back Up, a memoir of failure and resilience released as an Audible Original. My books are New York Times and #1 international bestsellers and have sold millions of copies across dozens of languages.


I also give over 50 speeches a year at places like TED, SXSW, and Google. My first TED talk “The 3 A’s of Awesome” is ranked one of the 10 Most Inspiring of all time and my second is called “How do you maximize your tiny, short life?”, an artistic side-project called the world’s first TED Listen, composed entirely of questions.


I also host an Apple “Best of 2018” podcast called 3 Books where I am on a 15-year-long mission to uncover and discuss the 1000 most formative books in the world. Each of the 333 chapters unpacks the 3 most formative books of an inspiring individual like Judy Blume, Chris Anderson of TED, the world’s greatest Uber driver, or David Sedaris. The show is recorded live at the guest’s preferred location and is 100% ad, sponsor, and interruption free. Each chapter publishes on the exact minute of every new moon and full moon up to September 1, 2031.


I share my most current writing in a bi-weekly email I send to over 30,000 people every other Wednesday.


My pro bono work focuses on youth mental health, youth literacy, and community wellness.


I have degrees from Queen’s University and Harvard Business School.


I live in Toronto with my wife Leslie and our three sons.
