    I have been converted to a disciple of the Jules (iPhone Wizard) Watkins and really enjoyed Part 1 of your discussion together.  I have posted a blog about Jules promoting his site and have started to record in HD with my iPhone and a hand mirror – so much better – thanks to you both
    Its warm and sunny here so I am now going for a quick seven mile run in the beautiful Wiltshire (South West England) Countryside to listen to Part 2.
    Kudos to you both (now rising from the prayer mat!)
    best regards

    • David Siteman Garland

       John – Wow, appreciate the kind words. That’s AWESOME. Have a great run, would love to check out your countryside one day 🙂

      • Jules’s product launch experience is really valuable.  Perhaps I should interview him for my podcast (read pick his brains with the questions I need answering!) 🙂
        Yes the countryside was very beautiful – with a setting sun and spring desperately trying to shake off winter – Fantastic
        Have a great day!  I will tweet you the promo I did for Jules
        Best regards

        • Jules

          Thanks for the kind words John 🙂

  • Jules and David,  Excellent interview.  It is so good to hear about the fits-and-starts to get going.  Truly is an example of continuous learning.

    • David Siteman Garland

       My pleasure Troy!!

    • Jules

      Thanks Troy!

  • Another day, another run and another guy with a cool accent. Making the run easier. 🙂

    Great interview also! 

    • David Siteman Garland


  • David and Jules,

    I loved this interview! So many lessons in here and Jules, your accent is awesome. 

    I’m going through iVideo Hero right now and LOVE it. As a mom and blogger, I’d strongly suggest you scope out the mom blogger scene and conferences like BlogHer, Type A, CES, etc. Your product would be SO perfect for moms who use iPhones and video – and there’s a TON of ’em. 

    Email me and I’d be happy to talk more about it. 🙂 (You have my email address….)

    Thanks for such a great interview guys!

    • Jules

      Thanks for the tips Heather, I’ll be in touch.

    • David Siteman Garland

       Awesome Heather. That is great to hear!

  • Jules,
    Thanks for the shout out.  Great interview series.  I love that David gave you 2 episodes to cover your story and your awesome products.

    • David Siteman Garland

       He just couldn’t be controlled to one episode 🙂
