Background: Blaine is a multi-award winning Creative Director and writer with a special focus on small business. He's helped increase the numbers for an uncountable number of local businesses across the country. With the voice of a much taller man, he's also heard daily, selling many of those businesses (as well as national brands) on radio and TV broadcasts from NY to LA. For more than a decade, Blaine was an advertising Creative Director at the Salem radio network's flagship station group in Los Angeles. Before marketing small businesses, he worked in several. Besides selling high-ticket retail in Boston and Los Angeles, he was a Vice President at The World's Greatest Ice Cream Company in South Miami Beach.
In his previous lives, Blaine has been a stand-up comic, Hollywood screenwriter and professional yacht bum. A graduate of Boston University, Blaine is also an amateur pizzaiolo as well as brewmaster for the Short & Busty Brewing label.
Parting thought: Redundancy often bears repeating.
Belief: Scared money never wins.
Background: Beginning life as a New York advertising art director, Honey quickly switched over to copywriting. (Better hours.) The peak of her career on Madison Avenue was as V.P. at the iconic Grey Advertising. Beckoned by a career as an LA freelancer, Honey answered, servicing both powerhouse agencies and creative boutiques. Her roster of agencies includes Saatchi & Saatchi, Rubin Postaer, Deutsch, Ogilvy, McCann, J. Walter, Team One, David & Goliath, and Donat/Wald. Glance at her extensive client list, and you find names like Honda, Lexus, Parker Bros., Mitsubishi Automotive, Netherlands Board Of Tourism, DIRECTV, NBC, Toyota, Yoo-Hoo, Partnership for a Drug Free America, UNICEF, Hotwire, Mandalay Bay, and SAP. And that brief list barely scratches the surface.
As a stand-up comic, Honey has toured clubs and colleges and made occasional TV appearances. She has also sparred with female boxing champion Christy Martin, for which she's most proud that she neither bled nor cried.
