We're back and here is the new video podcast. We shortened the format and went with an actual shot of San Diego vs. the Virtual Set we had before... I LIKE IT.
San Diego, CA - Following a short hiatus, “Blog This with David Kamatoy” returns to the Internet covering the phenomenon of the iPad, the new film “I Melt with You,”Bristol Palin’s dating status, Mark Christopher Lawrence’s comedy stylings and review of an interview with SBA loan broker Craig G. Francis.
In his first story, David Kamatoy discusses the amazing popularity of the iPad, with more sold in the holiday quarter than many pundits had predicted for the entire year. David then moves on from the popularity of the iPad to a discussion of the lessons that can be learned from Apple’s successful marketing of this and other products. The question marketers need to learn from their prospects, as David Kamatoy explains, is “How do I feel about your product?”
“We really couldn’t get away from Apple’s branding of falling in love with items.” -David Kamatoy
David Kamatoy’s second major topic is the interview he conducted with SBA loan broker Craig G. Francis which reviewed 2010, covering several areas of interest to small business owners and looking ahead into 2011. “If you’re very serious about being a business person in 2011, you want to read the report,” says Kamatoy. Craig G. Francis presents some sobering facts about the current economic situation and what entrepreneurs need to consider as they move forward in 2011.

New Video! East Village Tavern & Bowl with Dan Hurd, Craig G. Francis
San Diego,CA - David Kamatoy sits down with Dan Hurd, co-founder of the East Village Tavern & Bowl, to talk about the success of the business and how this successful tavern, sports bar, and bowling alley was funded by an SBA-guaranteed loan. The Tavern is the opposite of a traditional bowling alley in that it's a tavern/sports bar first and a bowling alley second. The video also includes footage of lines coming out of the door on a fight night, the venue packed on a game day, and interviews with patrons and staff.
"The idea behind SBA Loans can be somewhat flat out of context. We decided to profile a dynamic successful business so that entrepreneurs can see what's possible within the context of the SBA Loan program, hopefully find some inspiration. The East Village Tavern & Bowl is a great example of how a good idea can come together with team, credit, property, and align with an SBA Loan." -David Kamatoy, Blog This with David Kamatoy
The East Village Tavern & Bowl has become part of the landscape in downtown San Diego, expanding the size of the bowling alley in order to accommodate the growing patronage. Just recently, at the end of 2009, the owners opened their newest location in Chula Vista, CA, East Lake Tavern and Bowl. This growing, unique brand contributes part of its success to SBA-guaranteed loans brokered by Craig G. Francis.
"East Village Tavern & Bowl was unique. I've always liked working with restaurants because while there are great risks there are great rewards, and Dan had already proven his business model." says Craig G. Francis, SBA Loan Broker.
SBA Loan Broker Craig G. Francis joins the conversation in the second half of the interview to discuss the elements of why he likes working with restaurant projects and how he was able to help faciliate these projects.
