Actualas per Webseters, “Existing in act and not merely potentially.” I don’t know if I’m thinking about the word actual because I’m finally getting the EPRS lineup written or not. More likely I'm thinking about entrepreneurs interviewed for this month. Here are people that had a vision and actualized it into reality. Enjoy the inspiration and resources each provides.
Chad Kovac of K Ink Tattoo
The booming business of tattoo art and what it takes to achieve a successful business is the topic of this interview with Chad Kovac owner of the Ankeny, Iowa based shop called K Ink Tattoo. Chad has several years of successful small business ownership under his belt and found a new passion for tattoos in his second venture. It makes for an interesting story of how he went from one thought to an opposite mindset, and a business that caters to a wide variety of people seeking a safe and skilled place to receive a tattoo.

Ken Price of Shop Watch Buy pt. one
Look on the about page of Shop Watch Buyand the quick explanation is that this portal helps sellers and buyers enjoy an experience akin to what would happen if QVC and Ebay meet up with Youtube. Indeed. Go out and take a look and you’ll find many sellers offering compelling information about their products, the features and benefits all via engaging video. Ken was so interesting with much information about not only his business but video in general that I asked for more of his time than usual. I’ve sectioned this interview into the first part which starts to explain the power of Shop Watch Buy and Ken’s interesting background story. The man knows his stuff. Enjoy.
Ken Price of Shop Watch Buy pt. two
Even I know that most businesses, especially small ones, are not even beginning to tap into the power of video to offer their products and services. In this second part of the interview with Ken Price of Shop Watch Buy he goes on to explain how video can be used in business and several resources for even the smallest of budgets to consider in creating their own video. For the customer, you already know that you like to know a lot about what you buy and on-demand video is becoming the preferred way to do your research before you buy.
