Cell Phone Series: Zagg invisibleSHIELD and Bob Knows Phones

Kevin Binette and Harrison Funk, Owners  |   ZAGG invisibleSHIELD®

Starting a business in today’s economy is risky to some, but there is no better time to start your own
business for those who are interested in pursuing financial freedom. Many never even get started
in business ownership because of doubt, fear or lack of motivation. ZAGG invisibleSHIELD business
owners, Kevin Binette and Harrison Funk talk about their experience getting started in the retail business
opportunity and share some of their experiences, philosophies and strategies along the way.  |

Joel Quinn, Managing Partner  |  Bob Knows Phones
Bob is Smart. He Can Help.
Bob Knows Phones™is a local company that can fix your cracked screen, dry up that water damage, and
do a dozen other cell phone repairs.
Stop by and let us put in a new, original part on your phone. Drop off your smart phone at lunch — and
pick up on the way home, all fixed-up and shiny again. You’ll be surprised by what we can do at Bob
Knows Phones.
A cracked screen on your smart phone is annoying; an iPhone or Droid with water damage is a
paperweight. But have you ever called your cell phone company for a replacement? “Pay full price, or get
a price break but extend your contract” — that’s what you’ll hear.
There is a better, smarter way. Right here in Atlanta.  We currently have two locations to serve you. Call us now in Atlanta (678-298-3191) or Conyers (678-374-7387 (or email) to ask a question, or get a free estimate. We are here 7 days a week.
“What’s it cost?”
A lot less than what you’ll pay at AT&T, Verizon, Sprint or T-Mobile! At Bob Knows Phones, you can
expect to save up to 80% over what those guys charge. And we guarantee our work.

How to Position Your Company to Thrive in the Relationship Economy


Paul Collins, Vice President  |  Sagepath

How to Position Your Company to Thrive in the Relationship Economy

In a world of abundance and hyper-connectivity, companies must focus on more than profitability
and the bottom line. Rather, they must become more transparent and purpose driven. That’s because
consumers have the tools and devices to instantly share in the brand experience and provide influential
recommendations. Consequently, they’re more selective and discerning about the companies they
associate with and why.  Therefore, companies need to think and act more symbiotically, openly and honestly. They must embrace two-way dialogues with their customers, and engage less in “selling” and more in providing useful,
relevant information consistently across multiple marketing communications channels and devices.
Sagepath is a highly creative, multi-disciplined digital agency that follows a responsive, flexible and
nimble process that is custom-tailored to successfully guiding clients down the most direct and successful
path for their brand.

Jim Beach  | School for Startups

Entrepreneurship is not about risk, creativity, or passion. We were lucky enough to be published by McGraw Hill. The book, School for Startups, argues that anyone can be an entrepreneur. Seventy-two percent of Americans wish they were entrepreneurs. When this seventy-two percent of people see that risk and creativity can be removed, no excuse remains for inertia. The book has reached as high as #11 on Amazon’s business section, and features inside stories about several interesting, yet very real and relatable, entrepreneurs.

Jim Beach’s first book, School for Startups, was published by McGraw-Hill in June 2011. Jim has started businesses and has taught entrepreneurship around the world. At the age of 25, Jim founded American Computer Experience and grew the company with no capital infusion to $12 million in annual revenue and to over 700 employees, operating in 39 states and in three countries. Jim taught entrepreneurship at Georgia State University  for nine years and in 2009, and ranked number one in the business school for 12 straight semesters. In 2010, he founded School for Startups, which has taught over 7000 people to be low risk entrepreneurs. He has been featured in a UPS commercial, CNN called him the Simon Cowell of small business, and corporations like Wells Fargo, Toshiba, UPS, and SunTrust have hired him as a speaker and consultant.  |  678-640-0770  | |  @EntrepreneurJim
