Marketing Strategies for Speakers & Solopreneurs

Kyle Sexton loves business. Kyle’s first business was selling dollar bills for two dollars each in sixth grade. In his freshman year at the University of Oregon – while other students preferred the party scene over studying – Kyle avoided both by reading and writing business plans. He landed a summer job as a real estate apprentice for a developer who was willing to teach him everything he knew about business.

Back in his hometown of Salem, Oregon, Kyle began looking for leadership opportunities. He found it working for Mike McLaran at the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce. It’s been said that great leaders give meaning to the work, and after a very short while working for a great leader, Kyle found the meaning in the work. This fueled many changes to the structure and model of the chamber, propelled by popular benefits and national acclaim.

The son of a teacher and coach, Kyle now coaches and teaches people who want to transform their organization’s marketing from boring to booming, from scattered to aligned, and from noisy to powerful.
