What Do a Growing Family-Run Coffee Business and a Successful Brand Design Company Have in Common? The Sales Whisperer® Interview Shows More than One Might Think(May 21, 2014)
Temecula, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
It must run in the Schaeffer genes; entrepreneurism, that is. Wes Schaeffer, The Sales Whisperer®, recently interviewed two of his cousins - who are also siblings - about how they have built their successful businesses. The interviews are Sessions 56 and 57 of weekly podcast interviews of successful entrepreneurs who are also leaders in their field.
Podcast 56 features Ian Melancon, the CEO of River Road Coffees in Baton Rouge, LA. During summers while he was in college, Melancon worked with his father who started the business. After graduating from LSU, he began taking on more responsibilities and eventually the reins of their ever growing family-run business. Melancon relates how and why they can compete with much larger coffee companies.
Adrienne Melancon Folse is the subject of Session 57. She lives in New Orleans, LA, with her family and is owner of Design the Planet. Folse heads a team of "talented brand design and development engineers" that help companies "evolve for success." She has also branched out with franchise branding and a group that only deals with construction clients.
Schaeffer says, "Both businesses have flourished by finding their unique niche. They identified what they do well and set about to do it better than their competition."
Schaeffer has been honing his sales, marketing, training, and public speaking skills since 1997 and is known as The Sales Whisperer®. He is making quite a name for himself in the CRM, social media, SEO, and API worlds. Schaeffer is the author of two successful books, "The Definitive Guide to Infusionsoft" and "It Takes More Than a Big Smile, a Good Idea, & a Twitter Account to Build a Business that Lasts."
It looks like all of these businesses are in it for the long haul.
