From Backyard Business to Brick & Mortar w/David Marks of Quality Auto Repair Tire & Auto Sales
Today we have another in person episode for you. This is someone I’m really excited about interviewing today. We have been connected for almost 4 years now, going back to the pandemic. When I was trying to go from side hustle to full-time entrepreneur, he was one of the local business owners I connected with on Facebook and interviewed to help promote local businesses when everything shut down.Since then, we have been supporting each other along the way. He has attended both of my events I’ve thrown, both back in 2021 and just last week. He’s currently a 1-1 personal branding client of mine with BOA, and is an absolute pleasure to work with. There’s no way that knows more about networking to grow your business and he’s the best in the auto repair business. My guest today is David Marks. He is the Owner of Quality Auto Repair Tire & Auto Sales here in St. Louis, located close by in Maryland Heights. David’s Bio:My entrepreneurial story starts, Sep 2008 I bought a "Garage With A House In The Front Yard". In Dec 2009 I started working part-time (evenings/weekends) within year a and half (May 2011) What started with ZERO customers I turned into a full time business! 2013, I added Used Auto Sales, to my portfolio. I found people liked acquiring used vehicles from a Trusted Automotive Technician. 2016, I got involved with SCORE & Small Business Development Center, to learn how to be a business owner. (ANYONE CAN BE A BACKYARD MECHANIC, NOT EVERYONE CAN BE A BUSINESS OWNER). 2018, I added Used Car Detective, I found a need that consumers wanted to have Potential Used Vehicles inspected prior to being purchased. March 2019 I expanded my businesses to Maryland Heights with a 3 Bay Repair Facility, Full Service. This expansion will allow me to expand on my other 2 business Quality Auto Sales & Used Car Detective. The primary business will be Quality Auto Repair And Tire. To streamline my expansion, I formed a Management Company DSM Auto Family, LLC to oversee the day-day operations and still allow each of its 3 Business the ability to operate independently My business have evolved based on the principle of "People Won't Work For You And/Or Do Business With You If They Don't Feel Appreciated" We do that by providing "Trusted Services”Connect with David:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/davidscottmarks LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/davidsmarks/ Business Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/qualityautorepairandtireautosales Website: https://www.qualityautorepairtireautosales.com/
Lessons Learned from a Failed Company to Becoming the Entrepreneur he is Today w/Brad Starnes

Lessons Learned from a Failed Company to Becoming the Entrepreneur he is Today w/Brad Starnes
Today we have another in person episode for you. This is someone that to be honest, has made such a big impact on who I am today, and he probably doesn’t even know it. I’ve been “coaching” and helping people with their personal brands and businesses far before I ever launched Builders of Authority. And so often I would offer help and people would look at what I’ve done and make every excuse in the book as to why it was “too much”. Not today’s guest. And today’s guest has gone through an incredible journey. With plenty of ups and downs and challenges. He could have made excuses at every step in the journey, but he’s resilient and for that, I can’t thank him enough. He’s a member of our BOA Mastermind and one of my 1-1 Inner Circle coaching clients. My guest today is Brad Starnes.He is the Owner of Screamin Cow Marketing Group and the Host of the Unfair Advantage Podcast. Brad’s Bio:As the CEO & President of Screamin Cow Marketing Group, I lead St. Louis' premier marketing agency dedicated to elevating Home Service and Professional Service businesses. With a knack for strategic innovation and a passion for transformative marketing, my journey to the forefront of the industry is a testament to resilience, ingenuity, and the relentless pursuit of excellence.Before beginning on the entrepreneurial path that led me to Screamin Cow, I founded Splitsy, a fintech venture that revolutionized how we manage shared expenses. Under my leadership, Splitsy not only secured a significant 6-figure crowdfunding investment but also earned a coveted spot in Equifax's inaugural accelerator program. My efforts were recognized when I was honored as the 2021 Bloch School Entrepreneur of The Year, a milestone that highlights my commitment to disrupting the status quo.Despite the challenges that led to Splitsy's closure, my entrepreneurial spirit never wavered. The experience taught me invaluable lessons in resilience, leading me to a pivotal role in business development in St. Louis. This role set the stage for the creation of Screamin Cow Marketing Group, which, under my guidance, has seen remarkable growth. In just a year, we've built a talented team and are on the brink of surpassing six figures in revenue, with 2024 shaping up to be a year of exponential growth.Beyond my professional pursuits, my faith and the support of my family are my guiding lights. As a man of Christ who navigates the world with a stutter, I've learned the power of authentic communication and perseverance. My dedication to service is evident through my volunteer work with organizations like Missouri Boys State, and my commitment to building and nurturing both my personal brand and those around me. My driving force is my wife, our two dogs, and the future we're crafting together. Their support fuels my ambition and serves as a constant reminder of why I strive for greatness every day.Connect with Brad:Link: https://bradstarnes.fyi/ Website: https://screamincow.com/ Podcast: https://www.unfairadvantagepodcast.com/

Today we have another in person episode with someone I’ve been following since 2015/2016. Back when I was in medical device sales I was driving around and traveling a lot, so I needed to find something to listen to on the radio. After a friend of mine recommended I listen to his show TMA/The Morning After, I became hooked, or as the show refers to a lemming.Over the last 7 plus years, I’ve listened to the show and seen how incredible of a show he and his team have built, and how they’ve created a brand and a following that is so unique in the radio business. They’ve done a great job pivoting and finding new ways to connect with their audience. He’s created other impressive ventures as well, which I’m excited to dive into even further. My guest today is Tim McKernan. Tim’s Bio:Tim McKernan is one of the most widely known radio and media personalities in the St. Louis area.

Sitting Down for a Conversation w/my Dad, Brian McChesney, to Talk Life & Entrepreneurship
Today’s episode is going to be like none I’ve ever done before. It’s an in person episode.Today’s guest has known me longer than anyone else who will ever be a guest on my podcast. This is an episode that I’ve been so excited about for so long, but also a little nervous because of how important this person is to me. He’s got an incredible track record as a lawyer over the last 30 plus years, and has spent many of those years as an entrepreneur. So I’m grateful for this opportunity to have a conversation that I believe will be one of the best, if not the best episode we will ever do for many reasons. My guest today is my dad, Brian McChesney. Brian’s Bio:Brian is a partner in the St. Louis office of Rynearson, Suess, Schnurbusch & Champion, an experienced trial attorney with 30+ years of experience handling complex personal injury and wrongful death litigation, including automobile and commercial trucking accidents, fire and explosion cause and origin cases, construction and industrial accidents, defective and dangerous products, premises liability cases, and amusement park ride accidents. A polished trial attorney and respected member of the legal community, Brian is widely recognized for trying high-exposure cases to jury verdict.

Building a Company & Brand Through Promoting Fitness & Healthy Living w/Brendan Glijum
Feb 15 2024
Building a Company & Brand Through Promoting Fitness & Healthy Living w/Brendan Glijum
I’m excited for today’s episode. It’s the 1st in person episode of Builders of Authority. No pressure. Today’s guest is someone that I’ve known for years, going all the way back to grade school. We know of each other, but didn’t necessarily know each other well.It wasn’t until 7 or 8 years ago that we got to really know each other and started hanging out. Since then we have spent a lot of time together. Playing Sunday softball at SMMA. Spending too much time years ago in Oakville bar hopping, shoutout to Crocs. But over the past few years, we have grown up. We have started businesses. (Although we haven’t talked much business really ever at all, which is what I’m excited about doing today). Gotten married. And now both of us are fathers. Times to have changed, but of course for the better.He has listened to many of the previous Entrebrewer episodes, and I’ve been a patient of his at his chiropractic office. Which today reminded me, I haven’t seen you since Murphy was born, so I need to get back on the schedule. Nonetheless, he is just an overall great human being that loves what he does, and is building a great business for himself. So I wanted to bring him on here today to learn more about his journey and what he’s doing to grow his business. My guest today is Brendan Giljum. He is the Owner of Giljum Chiropractic in Oakville, MO. Brendan’s Bio:I am a Chiropractor from Saint Louis, Missouri who has a fanatical passion for all things health, sports (namely racquetball), and people. I have wanted to be in the health profession my whole life, and as I learned more about various opportunities, I was particularly called to Chiropractic. I love how as a Chiropractor, I get to help people take back their health by getting to the actual cause of their biomechanical issues and do so without drugs or surgery.I also love the entrepreneurial side of owning your own business and the unique challenges that are associated with it. Being able to build your patient base through branding and marketing as well as high quality, results-based care, has led me to feel inspired every day I come into the office. Whether you know me from my personal life or social accounts, @giljumchiro, or @giljgainz, one thing is for sure: my message of health, life ownership, and gratitude are at the forefront of everything I do, say, and post.My hobbies outside of practicing Chiropractic are my family, friends, travel, and sports, namely the Cardinals, Blues, City, and Mizzou Tigers. I am still an avid racquetballer and play 2-3 times a week. I was also a 3-time racquetball collegiate All-American. If I don't have my next trip to see the world planned when you are talking to me, something has gone terribly wrong.Lastly, as I mentioned, I LOVE people and health ownership and look forward to getting in the office every day to help people get more life out of their years!Connect with Brendan:Website: https://www.southcountychiropractic.com/meet-dr-giljum/ Personal Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bballbren45 Personal IG: https://www.instagram.com/brendanotto/ Lifestyle IG: https://www.instagram.com/giljgainz/ Company IG: https://www.instagram.com/giljumchiro/

Ep #100: Reaching the 100th Podcast Episode Milestone for Entrebrewer & a MASSIVE Announcement!
100 Episodes.Crazy to think that we have finally hit that exclusive mark in podcasting.When I first got started, I thought there’s no way I’ll get to 100. But hey, here we are. I want to do this episode solo for a few different reasons. One to talk about my journey podcasting and how it’s impacted my life. But also share a really cool update about the podcast itself. Which I will leave for the end. That way I can assure that you listen to the whole thing. My big announcement is that the Entrebrewer Podcast will be no more. We are rebranding the podcast to….Builders of AuthorityIf you’ve been following me on social media, then you likely have heard me talk about this. BOA is….It makes all the sense in the world to rebrand the podcast to this, and I’m really excited about it. Entrebrewer was a great name/theme/structure, but it’s time for something bigger and better. BOA will continue to be a podcast where you get all of the same, impactful information. We are going to continue to bring high level entrepreneurs and guests on the show, to interview them about their journey and talk about how they’ve become an authority in their space. Some of our upcoming guests as I’ve hinted at, are the biggest names I’ve ever had on. So this rebrand is coming at a great time due to that, plus what I’m doing with BOA. I want to thank you again for tuning into the podcast, please be sure to subscribe, download, and share our content. Leaving a 5-star review goes a long way. See you next week. And for the last time, “Entrepreneurs aren’t born, they are breConnect with me online:Website: https://adammcchesney.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/adam.mcchesney.3/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/adamlmcchesney/ YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@adamlmcchesney Builders of Authority: https://buildauthority.co/ BOA Live: https://www.buildauthority.co/event

Ep #99: Building A Success Plumbing Company on Core Values w/Mitch Smedley of Smedley Plumbing
I’ve been excited for this episode since we booked awhile back. I’ve only known this guy for about the past 18 months or so, but I am massive believer in leveling up and changing all areas of your life in a short period of time due to stories and journeys like today’s guest. He is a plumber by trade, but really one of the brightest entrepreneurial minds I’ve met, especially when it comes to building a culture, branding, marketing, etc. I met him through Apex, and then actually met him in person last summer speaking at an event just outside of KC. After that, he ended up having an event in KC a few months later for his group, and I was a speaker there too. My guest today is Mitch Smedley. He is the President at Smedley Plumbing, Mentor at Trade Wins, and Podcast Host of The Void. Mitch’s Bio:Mitch Smedley has been in the plumbing industry since 2001. He starting Smedley Plumbing in 2020 and has grown ever since. Mitch also started a podcast called The Void in 2022 with a focus on helping others start their own trades based business. He and his co-host then started a trades based mentorship program called Trade Wins in 2023. In Trade Wins, we work directly with young trades-based business owners to help them get their businesses to an incredibly healthy level.Connect with Mitch:Website: https://callsmedley.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mitch.smedley.1 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mitch_smedley/ Podcast/YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@PodcastTheVoid Trade Wins: https://tradewinsconsulting.com/

Ep #97: The Story of a Man Traveling the USA Pretending to be Australian w/Tannon Sweet
We are live here at Half Coast Studios in St. Louis for another in person episode. Today’s guest is someone I’ve known now for over a year. We originally got connected somehow on Facebook, met finally at a networking event, and then I had the chance to sit down for coffee with him and his wife. I’ve been able to work hand in hand with him and his team for his services, and he’s also had us do their website as well. He’s been able to accomplish so much in this last year, and it’s truly incredible to watch him continue to grow in all areas of his life. My guest today is Tannon Sweet. He’s the Co-Owner & COO of Samson Studios. Tannon’s Bio:I spent most of my early on life on the streets traveling the USA, jumping from house to house, pretending to be Australian. In 2019 I was working at Walmart overnight when Covid hit and knew something had to change when my entrepreneur life started to kick in. I was no good at working for someone. In 2020 while working as an insurance agent, my fiancé bought me a $300 dslr camera off of messenger and I started a photography business. Having no experience owning a business or knowing what that meant, all I knew was I couldn’t give up.I decided I wanted to learn film and reached out to my dream school to find out it was 6 figures to attend there.I didn’t let that stop me and figured a way into the school and it didn’t cost me a penny. I used my experience at that school to learn more about the film world and brewed a passion to create a heavy hitting industry out in the Midwest. Now, on our 3rd year into the business, we’ve figured out how to make 6 figures a year doing what we love, with no intention on stopping. Our goal in 2023 is to make 7 figures and our long term goal is to become a 10 figure business by 2050. We intend to ignite the wave of a new generation of directors and filmmakers. Because you don’t have to be famous or “someone “ to be involved. And that’s why we are looking for business owners, investors/entrepreneurs who want to venture into the world of film. You don’t have to be experienced to become a producer for movies. You just have to be passionate about it.The only way we can reshape our industry is by telling our stories becauseEvery Story Matters.Connect with Tannon:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100063521401810 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/__tannon__/ Samson Studios: https://thesamsonstudios.com/
