Tad Hargrave

TadHargraveTad Hargrave is a hippy who developed a knack for marketing (and then learned how to be a hippy again). Despite years in the non-profit and activist world, he finally had to admit he was a marketing nerd and, in the end, he became a marketing coach for hippies. Maybe it was because he couldn’t stand seeing his hippy friends struggle to promote their amazing, green and holistic projects. Maybe it was because he couldn’t keep a 9-5 job to save his life.



Whatever the reason, for almost a decade, he has been touring his marketing workshops around Canada, bringing refreshing and unorthodox ideas to conscious entrepreneurs and green businesses that help them grow their organizations and businesses (without selling their souls). His approach to pricing has made him a pioneer and documenter of the provocative new economy that is being written about and explored globally – the Pay What You Can Economy. It’s an economy where people decide on the price tag themselves. Tune in to hear Tad’s episode to learn why entrepreneurs struggle in their business and what you can do about it if you’re not experiencing the level of success that you’d like to. During Tad’s session he talks about his refreshing seven-step approach to identifying your best niche. You’ll also learn how going narrower and deeper with your market niche is the best way to build wealth in your business.
