Ok, today you are going to get a little insight into the Founder of Binge’s world (me)….

I am going to be honest, being an entrepreneur is a tough jam. Everything falls on you all of the time. I can’t remember the last time I had a day off, or a weekend, or was un-plugged. Running a global media company, we are “always on”, 24/7, there are inquiries from our channel partners all over the world.

People often comment on my energy, and ask how I keep it all together. Honestly, for the last 7 years, this is my secret. Kickboxing. I get to sweat our the stress, drama, literally get to punch things. This keeps me sane and able to work 16+ hour days.

My current “happy place” is CKO Kickboxing Miami I love the 6:15 am classes, as by the time most are getting up for the day, I am finishing the toughest and most rewarding hour of my day.

We are thrilled to be brining them to BINGEnetworks as one of our channel partners. You can watch their amazing video content here:

Another little insight to my life….I started my media career, back in the day, with Citysearch I started when this company had just two cities and before they were bought by Ticketmaster and then USA Networks.

I learned how to sell emerging media, pre-Google, pre-FaceBook, pre-E-mail and Twitter and anything else you know and use today. Imagine selling a “web site” to a florist or gym, when they have a perfectly good book called The Yellow Pages and have never heard of the “web”

Well, this is the current vision I have for BINGEnetworks I believe the connected device television market today, it what the internet was back then. We allow any local business to have their own “globally syndicated” TV Show, for their customers and to gain new ones.

We are starting with Miami, Florida and want to see every business with a channel on BINGE!

It’s kinda our thing, to help others get exposure….
