1. How "Drinking and Knowing Things" can be good for your business. Jim James 20:04

How can combining opposites into your brand name help your marketing? That's just one of the insights I have from today’s guest, the bestselling author of Drinking & Knowing Things,
Michael Juergens. Michael runs the wildly popular Drinking & Knowing Things wine blog which was adapted into a book that provides 52 specific wine recommendations. He is the founder of the Bhutan Wine Company and is leading the development of the wine industry in the magical Himalayan country.

Based in California, Michael Juergens is a Certified Sommelier with the Guild of Master Sommeliers, a Certified Specialist of Wine, and a Master of Wine Candidate with the Institute of Masters of Wine.   Michael also owns the award-winning SoCal Rum company, which was recently awarded the highest point score in history for any Silver Rum. Michael Juergens is a professor at the Paul Merage School of Business at the University of CA, Irvine. He lives in SoCal, where he spends his time blind tasting and doing extreme sports.

Support the show

Am I adding value to you?

If so – I'd like to ask you to support the show.

In return, I will continue to bring massive value with two weekly shows, up to 3 hours per month of brilliant conversations and insights.

Monthly subscriptions start at $3 per month. At $1 per hour, that's much less than the minimum wage, but we'll take what we can at this stage of the business.

Of course, this is still free, but as an entrepreneur, the actual test of anything is if people are willing to pay for it.

If I'm adding value to you, please support me by clicking the link now.

Go ahead, make my day 🙂

Jim James Champion of the Unnoticed Entrepreneur

I was sold on the power of publicity to meet ambitious goals when I jumped out of the plane ✈ at the age of 17.

Since that slightly foolhardy stunt, I have always been on the side of the business owner who has a great story to tell but doesn't know how to get the recognition they deserve.

Since 1995 I have built brands and businesses as an entrepreneur. I've lived in Africa, America, China, Singapore, and the UK.

In 2022 I sold my PR Agency in Singapore.

Now I consult business owners on how to get noticed, host a podcast, a radio show, and publish books.
