The Discussion will revolve around how Black-owned businesses can grow as the nation begins to move out of heavy Covid-19 restrictions.
“We felt that this was a good way to cap off Black History Month,” says Kamatoy, who has produced nationally syndicated television and radio programs. “But it is also an excellent opportunity for Black business owners and entrepreneurs to share how they have managed to survive, and sometimes thrive, through the Covid-19 lockdowns. Then, looking forward, how can we help support other small businesses moving out of the heavy restrictions we have been under in California and other locations.”
As co-host, actor, comedian and producer Mark Christopher Lawrence, best known as Big Mike on the NBC series “Chuck,” will join the panel to discuss the effects the pandemic has had on the entertainment industry and how he and others are trying to help struggling actors and related businesses.

He brings a unique perspective to the discussion.
Del Lewis, another member of the panel, is the founder of TriClare Business Holdings, a “venturepreneur” company that provides advisory services relating to business management and business operations. The company provides intellectual, and experience/expertise capital in exchange for a portion of equity in the client’s business venture.
Also joining the panel will be Tinicia Smith, President and Founder of Black San Diego: Empowering Our Community. Smith, who began the organization with a simple question on Facebook, is a business development professional with experience in the non-profit organization management industry. Her organization’s goal is to provide a platform for Black business owners, entrepreneurs and professionals to empower and strengthen the community.

Here are a few personal takeaways from this interview...
Steven David Elliot and Rockstar connect reinforce the importance of being an extrovert at times in order to promote yourself, your brand and your business. This is hard in a pandemic and even harder for introverts. But Steven David Elliot and I both are introverts and extroverts. The trick is to just do it, fake it even if its just for 20 minutes or a networking event or a social media post.
Relationships, Building relationships is extremely important for business but also for referrals. Helping and connecting people creates a Karma like effect. Relationships in and out of Covid can be reinforced now by picking up the phone, sending an email and just checking in with people.
(Press Release) Multi-creative entrepreneur and television host and producer David Kamatoy has released his latest video from The DavidKamatoy.com Show on networking in the era of Covid 19 with author and entrepreneur Steven David Elliot. In the segment, “Networking in Covid-19 with Steven David Elliot,” the two discuss the creation of Elliot’s networking program, Rockstar Connect, and the challenges of networking in the coronavirus era.
After beginning a career in social work with the elderly, Steven David Elliot became interested in marketing after learning sales technique from a cousin. Remembering what his elderly clients had often said to him while in social work about regrets for things they had not done, Elliot decided to follow a dream and open up a bookstore. Eventually he had four successful bookstores, two each in North Carolina and Miami , Florida, which he ran for 15 years. Even in an era of growing online book sales, Elliot’s stores thrived because of his emphasis on networking.
“It’s not about what you sell; it’s about the people,” Elliot explains in the interview. “I would help people, and they would reward me by doing business with me.” This focus on networking continued to grow and developed into a consistent networking event that provided the help he needed in his business. “I’m not a small business when I have a networking event, because I have that big tribe, a nation of people who are around me.”
Elliot goes on in the interview to explain how this networking event then grew into what today is the Rockstar Connect series of networking events. His theory, which he has shown to be quite successful, is that if people did a consistent networking event every month, they would never have to do any other form of prospecting. This is the power behind Rockstar Connect events which focus around an event host who is featured through social media pushes. By building an event designed to provide attendees with what they need to be successful, the host earns their gratitude and their connections. Many times a person who was never at the event is inspired by an attendee to connect and do business with the host.
The interview concludes with a discussion on the continued importance of connections and networking during the current Covid-19 era and beyond. Kamatoy points out the challenges of the new generation placing an inordinate emphasis on social media connections in contrast to tried-and-true methods such as phone calls. “That’s something we need to reinforce again, that it’s so strongly about relationships first.” David Kamatoy is a multi-creative entrepreneur - a juggler both literally and figuratively. His mission is to support and inspire like-minded multi-creatives in taking their projects to the next level. With a background in entrepreneurship and entertainment, he has produced hundreds of nationally syndicated Radio and TV episodes.

(Blog) Many of you have Googled yourselves, but most of you have been doing it wrong. Not wrong, necessarily, just not optimally. Googling or searching for yourself is basically typing your own name into a search engine like Google, Yahoo, Bing and seeing what comes up.
Most of us do this from a skewed perspective because we use the same search engine that we work from. The same site we do social media on, build our websites on and search for ourselves and related projects and brands. Your search history affects your results.
In order to Google yourself or search for yourself correctly, you should use an Incognito window in Chrome, an Inprivate window in Edge, or a private window in Opera. Your search is still most likely affected by your location, and for most of us that’s perfect. However, by using a VPN service you could see how you trend in another country.
Opera private has a built in VPN and I am happy to say that DavidKamatoy.com comes up #1 in Google in the Nederlands when searching for David Kamatoy.
Why should you Google Yourself?
Are you working on your personal brand as an Artist, Entrepreneur, Entertainer, A
uthor, Actor, Singer, or Media Personality? Maybe trying to apply for that next job?
If you are looking to blow it up on social media and the internet, the best thing you can do is to start by “Googling yours
elf” or searching for yourself, your brand, or your company to see what comes up. Study what comes up, compare that to the top searched sites, and then optimize accordingly.
We often base our branding decisions “on what we want,” but that has to be balanced with the reality of how people actually see you on the internet.
Google is the #1 Website in the United States according to Alexa.com.
ACTION: Open an “Incognito” Browser in Chrome or your favorite browser and search for yourself or your brand: “Your Name” “Your Brand” “Your Company Name.”
Tip: You want to type in your name or, if your name is not unique, then most likely your name + your occupation or company.
You want an incognito window so that your own search history does not bias the results.
You can also use a VPN to try to check results in other countries or areas.
If you can’t find your name because it’s generic, then that’s when you want to get a yourname.com URL, or you may consider changing your name or creating a stage name. (Just ask Michael Douglass aka Michael Keaton).
So the question is, what comes up? Does your website come up? Your Facebook account? Your IMDB?
Whatever you see is most likely what other people are seeing when they search for you. If someone meets you or does research on you, this becomes the first, second or third impression.
If you are using Chrome and Google, then you have technically Googled yourself.
Let’s dig deeper.
Within the world of Google we suggest looking at...
Other Search Engines
Follow a similar path on other search engines and browsers
Bing, Yahoo, Opera
Dogpile is a great search engine because it returns all the best results from the leading search engines.
YouTube.com is the #2 website in the United States according to Alexa.com.
Whatever or however you are searching for yourself, type it into YouTube.com
What videos show up? Do you have your own channel? Does someone else have a name or brand like yours? If you don't come up, then what does?
This is why Video is such a powerful tool. Google owns YouTube, and YouTube results feed into Google. A well-viewed, optimized video typically comes up in the Google Search.
Facebook.com is the #5 website in the United States according to Alexa.com
Search for your name, your brands, your company, and your hashtags on Facebook and other social media sites.
Top social media sites, and how you trend or rank in those sites, will show up not only on those sites but also in the search engines based on traffic.
Build your own name .com Website Yournameasabrand.com
Grabbing your name url as a .com, . net etc. is the top strategy that helps you to control your own message. Your own consistent blogging and content should be placed here, in addition to social media sites. Remember, you most likely do not own or control Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and your profiles can disappear or be banned overnight.
On that same point. Remember to build your own database using a system like jugglemail.com (Shameless Plug) to build, control and communicate with your fans or database.
Summary: Googling yourself or searching for yourself properly using private windows is the best place to start when trying to create and control your personal brand, your brands and your projects. Take note of what comes up and then strategize on how to optimize your presence using that information.

San Diego, CA: For the first (and hopefully last) time ever, the venerable San Diego Comic-Con will be completely virtual for 2020, due to the continuing Covid pandemic. An event that has drawn hundreds of thousands to San Diego over more than 50 years to celebrate the world of pop culture does not simply raise its collective hands and surrender to a world-threatening virus any more than The Avengers or Justice League would. And so on Wednesday, July 22, [email protected] hits the internet with a full complement of panels, exhibits, and an at-home experience to keep even the most rabid Con-fans satisfied.
Running from Wednesday, July 22, through Sunday, July 26, [email protected] will feature more than 350 panels. These will range from panels focused on art, pop culture and creativity to panels focused on special topics such as Indigenous People, mental health, and LGBTQI Identity. Diversity will feature in several panels over the five days. There will also be the usual big name panels such as the [email protected] panels (Friday and Saturday), several Cartoon Network and Disney+ panels, and panels with some of your favorite stars (find out what makes Charlize Theron a “badass” on Friday).
In order for Con-fans to experience [email protected] to the fullest extent, all panels and presentations will be posted on YouTube and the Comic-Con International Channel (www.youtube.com/user/ComicCon). Panels will go live at their scheduled times, and many will remain available beyond July 26. Full daily schedules can be accessed through the [email protected] webpage at www.comic-con.org/cci/2020/athome. Fans can also create a personalized schedule of panels using links on the page. Plus, for those who make a point in collecting new badges every year, you can create your own participant badge - no registration fee or frustrating online waiting room required!
Here are some of the highlights of the week:
Wednesday: This day should almost be renamed Teachers’ Day because of all the panels focused on the educational uses of comics and pop culture. The fun kicks off at 3:00 pm PDT with panels such as “Comics in the Classroom,” “Teaching and Learning with Comics,” and “GeekED: Restoried.” Other education-related panels include “Comics as a Conduit,” “Comics on Campus,” and “Teaching Graphic Novels Online” (perfect as schools return online for the fall).
Thursday: Families and Fandoms feature on the second day of panels. From the Star Trek Universe to X-Men, from Batgirls (yes, plural) to The Lost Cities, this is a day for fandom devotees. Other panels look at how pop culture deals with the current pandemic with “Comics During Clampdown: Creativity in the Time of COVID” and “Building a Geek Brand: Surviving a Pandemic” among other offerings. You can also reach out beyond your inner circle through “Causeplay - In Service to Others” or “Virtual Fandom: Superhero Fandom Adapts to the Pandemic.”
Friday: As usual, Friday is a day for the big “Hall H” level panels. This year the virtual panels include talks on DC Comics, Marvel, Star Wars, Fear the Walking Dead and Vikings. A number of panels will look at the interplay of pop culture and LGBTQI, Indigenous Cultures, mental health and female representation. One panel that is sure to generate a good deal of interest and possibly controversy is “Decoding the Kirby/Lee Dynamic,” which looks at the 50+ year relationship between Jack Kirby and Stan Lee.
Saturday: If you’re not sure what you are interested in, this might be the day for you. Panels run the gamut from scientific to creative to who-knows-what. “Back to the Moon and Beyond with NASA” will feature astronauts, technology and engineering experts, with Captain James T. Kirk himself (William Shatner) as the host. Several panels will look at the creative and business sides of pop culture, while others will visit properties as The Simpsons and Constantine.
Sunday: [email protected] wraps up with another day devoted to, well, everything. Fans can learn how to cosplay as adults, create a life-size cardboard superhero, or learn more about tabletop gaming. There are also panels on YA Fantasy, a celebration of TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) 30th Anniversary, and new series coming to Netflix and FOX.
Costa Mesa, CA (For Release) - SahyunNim Victor Teran, a 7th Dan Black Belt in Taekwon-Do, was inducted into the Masters Hall of Fame at the 20th Anniversary Awards Banquet at the Hilton Orange County Costa Mesa. The event featured Dr. Robert Goldman as Grandmaster of Ceremonies and action film star Sifu Cynthia Rothrock as Keynote Speaker. Following the induction ceremony, Master Teran spoke with Kumu Lua Michelle Manu, a Senior Black Belt and instructor in Hawai’ian Kaihewalu Lua, on the red carpet.
A combat veteran and trainer for the United States Marine Corps, Master Teran also spent more than a decade working for the U.S. State Department in the Diplomatic Security Service before returning home to open the International Taekwon Do Academy in New Jersey. His experiences teaching, especially with young children, inspired Teran to write the first of his three children’s books, Landon’s First Taekwon-Do Lesson. The book recounts the experiences of his own son at his first lesson.
“I can see a lot of difference in the kids when they practice the martial arts, especially a lot of positive changes in their bodies and mentally as well,” explains Teran. “I decided to share my experience with what I see with all the children.”
The Masters Hall of Fame was founded in 1999 and is recognized as the premier Martial Arts event on the West Coast. The association recognizes exceptional Martial Arts Leaders and Legends through induction into the Masters Hall of Fame. Honorees are chosen for their dedication to and support of the martial arts and their work in the community.
Special Thanks to Kumu Lua Michelle Manu for being our on camera talent. She has knowledge, appreciation and talent that goes beyond martial arts. Bringing great depth to the Red Carpet Marital Arts interview.

As the Summer comes to an end we wanted to give you a quick update of what’s been happening...
The Summer of 2013 has been both rewarding and exhausting for the KMG team. From corporate events to entertainment and the martial arts, we have been working hard to help keep the wheels rolling for our many clients. We wanted to share just a few of the many events we have been working on.
The summer began early as KMG’s David Kamatoy and producer/musician Tony Woodroffe collaborated on the musical direction for Kroc Junior Theater’s production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s CATS. The show included young actors from elementary school through college age and was presented at the Joan Kroc Theater in East San Diego. With direction by Laura Hodge, this talented young cast brought the antics of T.S. Eliot’s frenzied felines to life for appreciative audiences. The KMG team also provided marketing and media assistance for the production.
Moving on into the summer, we had the opportunity to partner with AMB Publicity to cover the 2013 National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Pacific Southwest Chapter Emmy® Awards at the Red Rock Hotel Casino Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada. David Kamatoy and Jason Carlage worked the red carpet, speaking with presenters, nominees and sponsors of the 39th annual event, including Master of Ceremonies Barry Shabaka Henley. Several video interviews have been posted from the event.
With summer comes travel season, and clean car is a happy car. We helped to organize and promote the grand opening of the Sorrento Valley Soapy Joe’s, the newest location for this San Diego-based family-owned line of car care centers. David Kamatoy was joined by actor/producer Mark Christopher Lawrence (NBC’s Chuck and Mark Christopher Lawrence Presents) and UFC fighter Joey “The Mexicutioner” Beltran. Also spending time at Soapy Joe’s were radio personalities Chio from KISS FM 95.7 and Nathan Frost from Channel 93.3, celebrity photographer Gabriela Stark and Dan “The Balloon Man” McClellan.
Summer also included the Fourteenth Annual Masters Hall of Fame Awards Banquet, held at the Costa Mesa Hilton on Saturday, June 22. This was the fourth year that KMG has worked with the Masters Hall of Fame to promote the event, which honors top martial artists every year such as Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Cynthia Rothrock and Kenpo legend Bob White. This year the event honored Women in the Martial Arts and featured Full-Contact Muay Thai Champion Lisa King, aka “The Black Widow,” as guest speaker.
Closer to home, David Kamatoy and Mark Christopher Lawrence took on the 2013 Comic Con at the San Diego Convention Center, covering the action in their own unique style. The pair interviewed participants, celebrities and fans at the annual celebration of all things geek. Former triple-jump Olympian-turned-Media creator Von Ware and friends joined them to document the action.
Right after the Con Mark Christopher Lawrence was asked to present at the First Annual Geekie Awards which oddly had a lot of our friends involved in the industry. It was a good way to end the events of the summer. (Pics coming soon)
We are still wrapping up various videos and media from all the projects and will continue to post.
“We’re very excited about everything that’s been going on these last few months,” said Kamatoy. “We’ve seen some great projects really take flight, and we’re looking forward to taking on some new projects in the next few months. We have a number of very cool concepts in the works and are hoping to expand even further.”
For more information about how we can help you with your business or project, please contact Kamatoy Media Group at [email protected] or call 619-573-9456.
This is me with Kickboxing Champion Lisa King. (Yes! I should be blogging about this.)
"The more I have to write about the less time I have to write." - David Kamatoy, juggler aka blogger
In the age of social media blogging continues to be extremely important. A blog should be the central HUB for all content you create because you own it. In then should be shared via social media leading the public back to your site / brand.
CONTENT IS KING AGAIN
Content will always be king and in the age of social media it becomes even more and more important. Often we are so busy creating projects and media that we do not optimize them for the web via blogging, press releases, articles, pictures, etc. In many ways that's our continuing goal as a media company. To adequately optimize our media.
For example the business that goes to the trouble of spending $5000 on a trade show booth but spends no money telling people outside and inside the trade show that they will be at the trade show via press releases, video, pictures, blogging and social media. Just like spending the additional money to staff the booth so should the company optimize it's investment buy budgeting for MEDIA & PR.
A VIRAL HIT + BODY OF WORK = OVERNIGHT SUCCESS (That took 10+ years to build.)
Everytime someone finds something that we or our cliets have done, we want them to see and easily find something else that we have done. This creates multiple impressions, branding, credibility, an increase in database and ideally an increase in revenue.
For example if you have only one video on YOUTUBE and someone sees that video and even loves it. What's the next video that come up on youtube? A: NOT YOURS. Epsecially if that is your only video.
Verily I say unto thee, the more media the merrier...
"In the age of social media, you can't ignore PR because by definition social media is PR. Take control of it and master it, your doing it anyway, just be mindful of it and improve."
-David Kamatoy juggler aka Host of 'Blog This with David Kamatoy'
This week alone we are producing 11 hours of national & regional radio, 6-10 hours of broadcast television. Additional Videos for the web. Continuing production on 3 musical songs and participating in a international UN Peace concert.(Ooh and I am submitting as a juggler for a national tv commercial =).)
HA! So yes there is a LOT TO BLOG ABOUT. We already producing the media. So now it's time to OPTIMIZE our efforts.
BUYER BEWARE: There are firms out there taking advantage of people and businesses that NEED SOCIAL MEDIA and then charging hundreds of dollars or more a month. However, if you don't have anything to promote via social media (i.e. blogging) then there is really nothing to build your social media around.
SHAMELESS CTA: We would love to help with creating something to blog about. Give us a call at 619-573-9456 or email us via the contact page, http://KamatoyMediaGroup.com
Anyway! My immediate goal is to start to babble again, that's what this is about.
ABC has decided to throw its hat in the ring finally in the singing show genre. Well timed, highly promoted, and a good start.
What makes this show interesting is that the judges are also competing. So they have to choose teams of people that will be singing with them. YEAH!
As I watch the show the theory actually works. You have fairly seasoned performers, writers, producers working with up and coming performers. There is a certain level of exsisting profesionlism like THE VOICE and the development of American Idol and THE VOICE without watching the train wrecks of the early American Idols.
Highlights of the show...
1. Robbie Williams cover of LET ME ENTERTAIN YOU to open the show....NICE
Jennifer Nettles Riffing on that as well. When she turns it on its kind a scary cool.
2. Robin Thicke being Robin Thicke lol. Seriously! But the moment when he made a really smart decision to not sing with a guy who jumps the beat when Robin naturally sings after the beat. Little things like that are the things that make this show different.
3. Singing with the FAN/ Stalker / Twin. Kelly's pick is Cool. It really shows how much she has influenced a generation of singers / performers and in a good way.
I am going to stop there so you can let me know what you thought? It's a solid show that should easily pick up THE VOICE & American Idol Fans in the counter season.
Jennifer you a bright light and I am like a MOTH.
Robin you are one talented funny ^&^#YUH% Your Mom's quote cracked me up. You working with people form the piano like John Legend is cool man.
John Legend, you are such a talented song writer with a unique voice. I almost think of you as a hidden secret that everyone KNOWS ABOUT. YOU ROCK!
Kelly Clarkson, you are super sweet, super nice. A real person who is super talented and continues to inspire a real generation of people to really sing.
KEEP IT UP!
Bog this people. Let me know your thoughts, I will talk about it on the show.
