Listen to “Lean Speak Teach”



What’s up all my successful business people! Ben here, owner of Balbert Marketing LLC,

I’m not going to waste any time with the traditional intro, outro, that kind of stuff…

I want to dive right into this week’s short episode. I have some VERY EXCITING announcements!!!!! Four announcements, to be exact.

Some of you already know some of these, but listen, hang on tight because a lot of this information is brand new!  And remember, the links you need to follow up are in the show notes!!! So if you’re in any kind of rush, head right there!!!!!!

First and foremost, I was nominated to become a member of 2021s “Rochester’s Finest,” a magnificent group of some of Rochester’s very best young business people.

And listen up; we’re raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

As you may know, Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system.

Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Through Foundation-supported research and care, the median survival of CF patients is now approximately 40 years of age. This is remarkable progress, but we continue to lose precious lives to CF every day.

Advances continue to be made in finding a cure. Still, your help is needed now — more than ever — to maintain the momentum of this life-saving research.

I am committed to raising money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and 

curing CF.

And that’s why I don’t plan to raise a grand or two; my goal is to raise $10,000.  And it’s going great! I just started the campaign, and I’m almost to $1,500! But that means there is a long way to go.

I will not rest until I reach my $10,000 goal!!!!

That’s why I am giving away free gifts to my donors. Has anyone seen Balbert Marketing’s cartoons in previous episode cover arts, Linkedin profile images, or email signatures!?  I want to make one for you.  And not a penny goes in my pocket; 100% of proceeds will go to fight Cystic Fibrosis! Come get your cartoon

Check out the show notes; donations of all sizes are so tremendously appreciated.

That’s why, for any businesses that aren’t currently clients of Balbert Marketing, I’ve committed to donating 100% of your first month’s payment.  If fighting this disease compels you, and you want to help, maybe we can do business together. And together, make a hefty donation in your name! Check out the show notes again, there is a link! And let me know why you’re reaching out.

Announcement two,

I will be teaching a course at The Rochester Brainery on the evening of July 28th, 6:30 pm. It’s 100% virtual, so I know you can attend anywhere in the world!  And all though I’ll be the main guy presenting, I’m building a small panel of rockstars to join me for the event.  More is better!

The topic of the class is “5 REASONS TO START YOUR PODCAST TODAY AND HOW TO DO IT.”  It’s exactly what it sounds like.  I hope to help compel you to start a podcast or reignite your current show, and illustrate precisely what your next steps should be.  Please support me!  The link is in the show notes. It’s going to be a ton of fun, with a combination of presentation, Q+A, and group networking, where you can connect to other podcast advocates!

Again, link in the show notes.

Last piece of information on the class… I’m donating $5 from every ticket sold to my Cystic Fibrosis campaign. That’s right, you can have fun, learn new information, be inspired, and raise money for a reputable cause!

Announcement three,

As many of you guys already noticed, I launched a brand new segment of the podcast called, Learn, Speak, Teach.  This is where I leave the region to chat with business superstars globally and bring their knowledge here to our community. I’m open to suggestions. If you want to learn, recommend a guest, and I’ll invite them on the show to Speak and Teach.  This will expand the value of this show and really push me to expand my reach throughout and beyond Rochester. I’ve already released two episodes of Learn Speak Teach, so scroll through the episode lists and listen if you missed out. I just had entrepreneur coach Russ “The Big Guy” Swanger on the show. Before that, we had a performance psychologist for fortune 200 companies, Dr. Nick! We’re going national! So send me your recommended guests!!!

One final update for everyone to look forward to…

I’m really excited about this one.

I’m proud to announce another new segment, yes, a third segment to the show,
