Todays guest is a man who states that he is a Christ Follower, CEO of Author Media, Professional Speaker, Podcaster, Wordpress Lover, Marketer, Political Trouble Maker, & Homeschool Graduate.
Which means that the conversations today can literally go anywhere, and he will have an opinion on it....so what shall I start with first...religion or politics?
Well let's start with the fact that since building his first website at the age of thirteen, our guest has been fascinated with communication whether its in the written word or by presenting his message in award winning presentations across America.
He believes in connecting with people across the globe, and so it wasn't too much of a surprise to see that the early party of his career led heavily towards directing people on the political campaign trail.
For several years he assisted political hopefuls to run their campaign at grass roots level by recruiting, training and organising volunteers to knock on doors and convince those voters that they met, that their boss was the way forward.
But it was when he took this love of influencing and communicating, and combined it with his love of wordpress and website building that his career really started gaining speed.
And in 2008 he created Umstattd Media focusing on social media consulting, web design, and helping authors and businesses get the most out of the web.
This later changed to Castle Media Group and the rest as they is history.
So what it is it about communication that really lights him up inside, and helps him explode the potential opportunities all around him?
And does he have any design to go full circle and bring his skills back into the political environment?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only Thomas Umstattd Jr.
