Full Transcript Intro: Welcome to The Off The Grid Biz Podcast, a place for conversations about out of the box businesses with heavy e-commerce elements. I'm Brian Pombo. When thinking about your business or project, what do you think about when I say phrases like customer service, ideal customer profile and content marketing? I know these are kind of dry and they're overused so often cliches in the industry, but today's conversation is going to uncover how to bring these concepts into actual real life for your business and how you can profit from them. Here's our very first conversation for this podcast and if you stay until the very end, I'm going to go over some of my takeaways from it. Listen to this….
