Episode 215 – Amelie Robitaille – Cirque Du Soleil: Kurios / audio

Cirque Du Soleil

Amelie Robitaille (@Cirque on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss Cirque Du Soleil and their new touring show Kurios. The reputation of Cirque Du Soleil is undeniable, so why did they agree to talk to Craig? Because the circus of the sun is coming to town and who better to talk to about life under the strange big top of than someone as strange as Craig? Thankfully, Amelie is used to talking to clowns. She and Craig discuss behind the scenes of The Cirque, how they plan shows, what they look for when auditioning performers, how they deal with injuries and more. It’s a unique look into the life of a circus performer!

What is Kurios?

In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a Seeker discovers that in order to glimpse the marvels that lie just below the surface, we must first learn to close our eyes.

In his larger-than-life curio cabinet, the Seeker is convinced that there exists a hidden, invisible world – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await. A collection of otherworldly characters suddenly steps into his makeshift mechanical world. When the outlandish, benevolent characters turn his world upside down with a touch of poetry and humor in an attempt to ignite the Seeker’s imagination, his curios jump to life one by one before his very eyes.

What if by engaging our imagination and opening our minds we could unlock the door to a world of wonders?

Tickets for Cirque Du Soleil’s new show Kurios is available now at


Episode 214 – Patrick Allmond – List Building / audio

list building

Patrick Allmond (@PatrickAllmond on twitter) returns to talk to host Craig Price about list building. We’ve all been told over and over again that to make it business you have to grow your audience and build your list of emails. Be it newsletters, white papers, bribes or whatever, just like in GlenGarry Glen Ross you need the leads. For many, it can be daunting growing a list because it assumes you already have a list to grow. Thankfully, Patrick knows how to grow lists, how to segment them, cull them properly and even A/B test them! Not sure what I just said right then? Good, because Patrick will help decipher it all.

Episode 213 – Cary Gordon – Rebranding / audio


Cary Gordon with Prime Camera (@PrimeCameraUSA on twitter) returns to discuss rebranding with host Craig Price. It’s not common that a guest not named Alan Cerny comes on the show twice in a year. Last time, Cary came on to discuss his position as Social Media Marketer for Comicpalooza. This time, he’s here to discuss his day job with Microsearch, a name you may have heard in our speakers roundtable episode over the summer. When Cary mentioned to Craig that Microsearch was rebranding to become Prime Camera, even Craig could see that this would be a perfect opportunity to bring a case study to the podcast.  The two discuss the process of rebranding, why a company of 33 years felt now was the time to change, how to plan for a major change, dealing with resistance, how the new branding brought a larger scope to the company. and oh yeah….the briefly talk about how Batman v Superman sucked.  You can’t put two comicpalooza people in a room without it getting a bit nerdy.

Prime Camera grand opening will be October 12th at their location at 11500 S Sam Houston Parkway West Houston ,TX with a full day of workshops, discounts and prizes. You can find them at their new website as well as on twitter @PrimecameraUSA,  Instagram at PrimeCameraUSA and Facebook.

Episode 212 – Ralph Peterson – Dieting / audio


Ralph Peterson (@SpeakerRalphP on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss dieting.  Dieting is no fun regardless of how much you weigh or have to lose. It can be a nightmare of shame and feelings of failure, especially when you have to lose triple digits just to begin to be healthy. It can be tough dropping old habits and dealing with people who use food as encouragement or a coping mechanism.  Ralph talks with Craig about how he lost over 150 pounds, dealing with awkward compliments, the inner monologue and more.  He also talks about how he started running to lose weight and now is a frequent marathoner, the mental obstacles he faced and how he took control of his life and health back.  You can see his series of videos about losing weight on YouTube on RalphPetersonTV.

Episode 211 – Jen Rulon – Triathlons / audio


Jen Rulon (@CoachJenRulon on twitter) discussing preparing and running triathlons with host Craig Price. Knowing Craig and the height of his exercise regime is struggling to scoop hard ice cream out of the gallon container, it would seem unlikely that a true athlete would be on the podcast. But there is a huge difference between doing a triathlon and talking about one, so Craig immediately got comfy in his chair to talk with Coach Jen.  Jen has run over 10 Ironman triathlons and coached over 20 athletes for the ironman. Despite the seemingly opposite approaches to fitness Craig and Jen have a lively discussion about how to train for a triathlon, is being “too busy” really an excuse, how pee can slow down the competition and why she loves doing events like these. They also discuss ways her training can be applied to business and to non-athletes as well as talking about her 12 years training orcas at Sea World!
