PeddlingThru Paradise-Pedego Kailua

Posted in electric bikes on September 26, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

Today we travel to the Big Island of Oahu in Hawaii to catch up with one of Pedego’s earliest dealers, Pedego Kailua.  Charting their journey from early adopter thru the potholes in paradise caused by the Covid crisis (when Hawaii shut down and shut off all their tourism lifeblood).  And how this longtime dealer simply shifted gears from mainly renting his eBikes to mostly selling them to islanders suddenly working from home. 

With some unexpected twists and turns along the way, on this week’s PEDEGO PODCAST. Tracking the eBike Revolution and the entrepreneurs  (like Mark Librie and his store Manager Chandelle Garcia) driving it along.

John Minto, the mayor of Santee, California, joins us to talk about his own passion for eBikes (as he pedals his Pedego Electric Bike all over town for fun and better health).  And how it’s actually helped him be a better mayor by getting out in the community more and meeting more people at a more personal pace.  Explaining how cities (like his) are embracing and adapting to this new eBike Revolution with greater access, encouragement and safety training.  All on this week’s PEDEGO PODCAST.

With continuing tales of the entrepreneurs driving this movement. And the love stories of those just riding along. Powered by Pedego Electric Bikes.

Ep. 35: How to Launch Your Book Like a Product

Posted in book publishing, Business on September 16, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

When it comes to launching your book we are big fans of taking inspiration from new product launches.

If you’re a business owner, entrepreneur, or CEO you’re probably thinking “I’ve got this.” But the truth is that you really need to sit, think about it the product, and plan for a book launch months before your book is complete.

In this episode of the Pub Date Podcast we’re joined by Terry Rice, a business development consultant, staff writer at Entrepreneur magazine, and host of the Launch Your Business podcast, to give you tips on how to reach your ideal audience, test your concepts, and create a work flow that allows you to get it all done.

Riding Along with Autism-Piedmont Pedego

Posted in electric bikes on September 12, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

Today is the special story of Ryan Gustman, a gifted young photographer who traded in his car and shifted to riding an eBike full time instead.. Not in spite of his autism but precisely because of it. Taking him off the road and into the forgotten backroads of his beloved Winston-Salem area of North Carolina. Where he makes a living photographing old, abandoned buildings caught in that “liminal”, shifting space between what they once were and are quickly becoming. Once alive but now forgotten. With some being “born again into something new (like a revived retail or restaurant location). 

It’s all part of what he’s capturing and exploring on his Pedego City Commuter. As he moves beyond the boundaries of his own autism to becoming part of an even bigger narrative. “My eBike has given me the freedom to explore,” explains Ryan, “at a slower, more human pace my autistic brain can better absorb and handle”.  Both calming him and energizing him at the same time. Allowing him to grow and change and explore the world all around him. “In ways I could never have imagined”. smiles Ryan.

An imaginative tale of calm and change in this week’s PEDEGO PODCAST. As we continue to chronicle the eBike Revolution (and the love stories of those riding along).

Ep. 34: What’s the best option for your business book: hardcover or paperback?

Posted in book publishing, Business on September 2, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

On this episode of the Pub Date podcast we discuss the big question in book publishing: Should you release the hardcover before the paperback?

We’ve seen it all when it comes to this conversation. Authors like the prestige of having that hardcover with dust jacket at a book signing, but as a self-published author does that matter? When it comes to formats we’re agnostic.

There are pros and cons to everything in book publishing. And if you’re self publishing your next book, you can do what makes sense for you, your business, and your bottom line.
