Check out this description of today’s guest, Kevin Nalty: Kevin “Nalts” Nalty is the only career marketer who also is one of YouTube’s most viewed entertainers. Author of “Beyond Viral” (Amazon Link), Nalty is a sought-after speaker described as “passionate, engaging, provocative, and practical.” Nalty consults in the area of digital marketing and emerging media, and has helped such leading brands as Starbucks, Fox Broadcasting, Kodak, MTV, Logitech, Panasonic, Crowne Plaza and Microsoft.
I asked Kevin on the show today for two big reasons:
- To help all of us creative entrepreneurs with video. He is REALLY in the trenches of the video world, so I wanted him to share a few predictions for this year that he made in this article he wrote.
- To share his story. How does someone go from the corporate world to becoming a YouTube entertainer? How does he make money? How did he get started? How does this all freakin’ work? And what inspiration can we learn from it for our businesses and careers?
Enjoy this interview with Nalts and, as always, looking forward to your feedback. And as he says during our interview, if you need to find him, Google fart. Can’t say I’ve ever quite had that response before!

Money Map to Freedom, created by Alexis Neely: Have you ever wished you could stop making your business decisions based on money or fear and start living the life and having the business you really want without stress, worry and doubt?
