How did you find EOK?
Word of Mouth
Who are you? (family, school, work, hobbies, interests, dreams)
I am a small business "Administrative Assistant" and I have experience working in legal, telecommunications, property management, retail, environmental, medical, marketing, fraud research, real estate and with lots of small businesses. I hope to start using my event planning that I am learning at Entrepreneurs of Knoxville to help you plan and implement your business events.

I specialize in supporting those who need help with small business management and marketing. I want to allow you to take care of more pressing business functions than will increase your bottom line. I will implement all the essential components you never have time to get to but are important for your business to run well and be successful. I can also be the face of your business as I am very social, exude enthusiasm and tend to naturally see that people have what they need.

I am also a Reiki II practitioner and have animal certification. I practice animal reiki on the horses at Horse Haven of TN, a non-profit rescue farm and on the kittens/cats at Happy Paws Animal Rescue both in Knoxville, TN.

I'm very passionate about life and try to always be optimistic! I believe that having a positive attitude is a choice. I want to make the world a better place by helping the most people possible! I believe entrepreneurs are saving our country at the present moment and relish the idea.

I love intelligent people because I need to always be learning. I like living and thinking outside the box....

INC magazine's article on Why Inc 500 CEO's are Smiling

Posted on March 19, 2010 at 5:39am 0 Comments

The article in the March INC magazine on Why Inc CEO's are Smiling is very encouraging. They're getting ready for good times ahead - and they're creating jobs. 93.3% expect to hire employees within the next six months, 95.7% do not expect to lay off employees in the next six months, when asked how many employees they've hired in the last six months 65.5% responded 1-10. When asked how optimistic they are about 2010, 60% replied very optimistic with 38.9% somewhat optimistic.… Continue

I'm back, well almost, I didn't make this morning's meeting :)

Hello everybody, I've certainly missed seeing everybody and some of you may have been wondering what in the world happened to Marty? Well it's not because Leo and I aren't working together anymore, although he did try to drive me crazy a couple of times :). I still think Leo is the greatest and he thinks I am (so far as I know) but I took the opportunity (not sure this is the right word) to have basal joint arthroplasty, hand surgery for arthritis of the basal joint. It was nothing like I… Continue

Patrick Hunt wants to let EOK know about his latest project, Circle Chirp (

A circle is like having your own personal Twitter about a particular topic that's important to you. So, for example, I created one for EOK at After you complete the registration, go to your Dashboard and enter in your Twitter credentials. All your posts and comments will be automatically tweeted with a short URL back to CircleChirp. This is a very early beta, but… Continue

Let's add Buckethead Pub to the mix of venues.

Thanks Marty, Look forward to seeing you as well at upcoming events. As to the philosophy, I find it takes far more energy to worry about, to stress over and or to be negative about something than it does be positive, stress free and without worry - the latter gets far more done with more energy in surplus plus it opens doors.

That sounds worse that it is!  I enjoy the pub nights - great company and great fun.  I missed the last one.  It was my daughter's birthday and I would not miss that for the world.  I will plan to make the next one.

Hi Marty, I'm a 20+ year veteran of the Media/Entertainment business that initially relocated to Knoxville from southern California to work for Scripps Interactive Networks. I left Scripps a few years ago to work on Qualcomm's (out of San Diego) startup, mobile, television service called FLOTV. It was sold to AT&T and I returned to Knoxville to work on two new startup, digital media businesses -- 1) NewsBreak Network - a digital-out-of-home media platform that narrowcast news, weather, sport and advertising to point of purchase displays throughout Knoxville & Nashville, ie., TV's at Pilot fuel pumps; and 2) Active Media Project - an interactive television platform for the internet and wireless devices. Both in early stages of development with lots of promise.

Thanks for your prompt comment! I have added a photo of myself. Also, thank you for the invite to EOK's pub night on Thursday. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it this week but hope to stay up to date and be able to attend all the future meetings.

Thanks, again!

Thanks so much Marty. My family and I are really looking forward to our move to Knoxville. We won't be settled until August and I'll really like to connect with other members in the mean time. I'm definitely excited about attending EOK events and meeting other entrepreneurs in the area!

Hi Marty, thanks! Good to be here!  Everybody was so helpful and encouraging at the info-packed meetings today.  This group is awesome. ;)  Yeah, I'll definitely be at the Pub meeting (nice idea!) and I'm trying to make all of the others.  

At 12:31pm on December 19, 2011, David Freestate said…

Thanks for the welcome- I've been listening to the podcast, and it'll be nice to put some faces with voices.  I usually get pretty tied down during the semester, but hoping to make some meetings during breaks, and maybe even some pub nights during the semester.  Looking forward to meeting you & the rest of the group!

Thank you Marty and I hope to be there! I am excited to see that there is a place like this here in Knoxville. I feel like this will help me to get my name out here locally. I have tried wide spread national marketing with my blog, but I think I may get better results marketing myself locally. I am really excited about this.

Thanks for the warm welcome Marty. I was at the meeting today, and I'll probably make most of the weekly meetings.

I look forward to meeting you in person.
