Hello My Name Is…

Hi It’s Ken Chandler. Some of you may recognize the name from Vera’s farewell post. Well, that’s me she’s talking about

I am sure most of you do not know me yet but I hope to  change that.

I have worked on military aircraft for almost 3 decades both as a U.S. Marine and as a civilian. I started my first offline business around 1992 and I have been working online with my own business since around 1996.   I  can easily understand how important your time is simply from my own experience. Given all that, I believe I will have many things to share that you will be able to utilize in your business and at the same time look forward to learning from you too.

I have 3 daughters  and a wonderful wife whom I love spending time with. My idea of fun is not slaving to a business.

It is not easy and I have big shoes to fill, but hope to continue the great work that has preceded me here. I am looking forward to connecting with you and challenging each other into taking our businesses to the next level.

I would like to take a minute and wish Vera much success in her new venture and  say I am looking forward to following her  progress. Be sure to follow her here.


I also look forward to her continued contributions here .

Ken 🙂

I started my first offline business around 1992 I owned and operated a radio sales and repair shop for about 4 yrs. I have beenonline since around 1996. I dabbled mostly and it wasn`t till 2006 when I went to my first Big Seminarthat I really saw what the internet was doing right at my fingertips.
Since then I have started and currently run several service sites online.My personal brand online is notcompleted yet but I work on it daily in the hopes of establishing myself.

I decided to narrow down those that I truly follow and recommend. Armand Morin , Michel and Sylvie Fortin and Jim Howard author of Branded for Success are my main sources of knowledge these days by choice.
For inspirationTony Robbins fills the bill nicely.
I have to say that Ed Dale is still a favorite and I love what he has done with the Challenge and the amount of people I know who have benefited .Jimmy D Brown,Jim Edwards are always trusted sources of quality information.

I intentionally cut back on those that I follow to reduce the noise and allow me to focus on what is important.This is not to say there are not plenty of good people to learn from. I just think you need to choose a few and immerse yourself in what they can offer.

Napoleon Hill- is a must read for anyone in business

I think I have a diverse enough background to bring some good things to smallbusinessbranding.com . I look forward to the chance to prove it.

SBB has a wonderful heritage and I think that you will enjoy the readers and contributors here. I’m anxious to connect with you as soon as you’re able. Vera and I formed a strong connection through our association here, as I’m sure we will as well.
