Patrick's Podcast Picks Vol. 2

The #AskGaryVee Show - A Key Note: Entrepreneurship cannot be taught

This episode of the #AskGaryVee Show is a keynote that he did at USC. If there is one Slam Dunk, Face Punch, Fucking Awesome podcast that you listen to this week make it this episode. Gary drops so much incredible inspirational and motivating pieces of information in this keynote that for me it is become a mandatory saved podcast.

This is the kind of podcast that I will consistently return to on a monthly basis for the next year because there's just so much stuff in there that you have to keep listening over and over again to really grab it all. Get it.

The social media Examiner show - How to use Facebook power editor: a complete guide.

If you're looking to turn up your Facebook ad campaigns or just learn a little bit more about how they are implemented, I strongly recommend this podcast.

Podcast with Todd Jennings: CEO & Founder of Panthera Technologies

Having qualified, competed in and finishing the world’s toughest one day endurance sport the Ironman World Championship, Todd understands what hard work, dedication and perseverance mean. In today's business environment you have to overcome obstacles and market challenges every day. Todd brings something unique to the game you won't find from others...an unmatched passion for what he believes in.


Todd was selected by SmartCEO Magazine twice as one of the top CXO’s in the Baltimore area. Todd is a talented IT professional with almost 30 years of systems, technical, management and leadership experience in IT technologies within many various industries (manufacturing, distribution, financial, insurance, federal government, colleges and universities, health care and retail). Having founded Panthera Technologies it was important to set the foundation of not only what services/products Panthera offered but what the company stood for and what its “DNA” was built on.

Todd on his company, Panthera Technologies:

"Our values and principals guide all decisions and are unshakable. They define who we are and guide every step we each take. Our clients, partners and our team are better off as a result. We are united in our mission and belief that technology results are measured far beyond just the technical delivery. We are passionate about leveraging both our business expertise and technology understanding to gain the greatest business impact on behalf of our clients. While being bound to our guiding principles and beliefs. Which gives us the strength to deliver excellence in all we do."


Having spent most of his life in Baltimore, Todd considers this home and where he will see the rest of my professional career out. He has a wonderful wife, a son who is a computer science major at Penn State, and a daughter at Hereford High School who loves field hockey.

Todd believes in paying it forward and dedicating time to organizations he believes in. He is currently a board member of The Brigance Brigade,There Goes My Hero, Fireman Rob Foundation. These organizations embody the spirit and values that are so important to him. As an entrepreneur Todd believes it is as much about what we give back to our community that establishes who we are as business.

Action vs. Inaction | Launch That Podcast!

Launch Wagon

Very excited to announce the launch of the Startup Soirée Podcast! We've had this project in the works for a few months and I'm excited to say that it's finally come to fruition. We did a soft-launch a few weeks ago so we could test the waters and make sure we understood how things were working and so far we've had a pretty great response.

The Startup Soirée Podcast will be waiting for you every Monday morning; eager to bring you the most awesome founder chats this side of Kentucky. The format for our podcast is short and sweet; a one-on-one stream of Q&A's by a founder (yours truly) to a founder (maybe you?) with the sole purpose of capturing a snap-shot of what makes us tick. tick. tick. 


We've predicated the entire concept of Startup Soirée on the understanding that we as founders deal in a secret language; one that is expressed and articulated by challenges unique to our set. At Pixilated we meet with amazing business owners everyday and it's always the best part of my day. Those conversations are inspiring, re-affirming and fun and that's exactly what we're aiming to bring you with the Startup Soirée Podcast.


Who the Hell is Whom?

The first three SoiréeCasts (as I like to call 'em) were guested by three diverse founders from our Baltimore community so when you head over to the iTunes store and SUBSCRIBE you're gonna have three excellent episodes waiting for you.
