Cleaning up the Scioto river in Columbus ohio at one of the kayaking river cleanups I help organize.

I'm Mike Rudd and I do my best to create for the world items that bring me alive and that I believe in.
How did I get this way? Let me explain.

It began in 2002 when I sold over 75,000 Hot Dogs working at a hot dog stand in college during the day to pay my way through Ohio State's Fisher College of Business at night. I realized working at the hot dog stand that I loved my job and we all have a "hot dog stand" in our lives and we must always do something we believe in and love in our lives.  Once we find our hot dog stand/passions and tap into them motivation yearns to come out of us and there's no telling what we can accomplish and feel satisfaction from in life.

Since leaving the hot dog stand I helped businesses through sports marketing, radio sales, crowdfunding, and product design for 15 plus years by building ideas from the ground up and partnerships that truly helped the community.  It resulted in the opportunity to work with over 400 local, regional, and national businesses driving over $12 Million Dollars in revenue and counting.  My sales and marketing philosophy is all about being yourself, having fun, tapping into passions, and building ideas from the ground up!  My 3rd book The Passionate Marketing Revolution takes this philosophy into a step by step process for business and individuals to learn and implement for themselves.

I'm available for hire to help companies in the outdoor, adventure travel, and health/wellness industries in keynote speeches/workshops to help them implement The Passionate Marketing Revolution.  You'll also find free content on here that I hope anyone can take value from.
I'm also a partner at Hutchison Media Consultants and the creator of the Outdoor Adventure Community Hashtag 59!

In my free time I am a writer, yogi & yoga teacher, volunteer, nature junkie, world traveler, hiker, & trail runner. Thanks for being part of my crew, I'm glad you're here! Email me at to talk more.

Spread Good Vibes, Demand the Best from Yourself, Carpe Diem!
