THE NAKED TRUTH Eric Keosky-Smith and Mike Carrillo with Hownd
Many local businesses fail because of marketing tools that require too much effort, expertise, investment, and don’t convert customers.
Hownd was built to effortlessly drive sustainable foot traffic brick and mortar companies need to grow by delivering personalized offers to the right customers at the right time. At Hownd, we like to create good problems.
So many customers you need more staff? So busy you need to open another location? Too many leftovers from Thanksgiving?
Everyone loves a good problem. Because good problems are caused by success.
Eric Keosky-Smith is an advisor for best-in-class Marketing, Technology and Consumer-focused clients – driving strategy, marketing, business development and partnerships for compounding growth.
He became one of the first ambassadors for Conscious Capitalism – a powerful framework for world-class companies where strong profits are a by-product of the great purpose-driven work you do, and capitalism is a force for good!
He’s had successful deep dives (and some failures!) launching startups, as well as strategic initiatives with Fortune 100 firms, including the OverDrive and Pentium Processors for Intel Corp. He did that work in Europe, where he lived for 7 years while also starting a family. Having moved from Intel’s HQ to Arizona many moons ago, he now calls greater Phoenix home.
Mike Carrillo has been head of growth, the Chief Evangelist officer and now Chief Brand Officer for Hownd, Inc., one of the fastest growing software firms in Arizona. As a former small business owner, he intimately understands the pain and challenges associated with not just owning a business, but all the tasks required to keep it moving day to day.
Mike also knows that in running a local business, there should be some things that can be made far easier and far more effective – like bring new and existing customers in the door. Mike passionalty works with Hownd’s customers to help them grow, nurture and monetize their customer relationships in a way that’s both effective and respectful.
When he’s not spreading the good news about the company, he’s busy raising four children, three peacocks, chickens, ducks and a goose named “Mother”.

ABOUT YOUR HOST
Within the first 3 minutes they meet, The Snake Charmer (aka Lori Corrigan) persuades her men’s body waxing clients to be 100% physically and emotionally vulnerable to her.
Guys willingly sign over their modesty, fear, intimidation, and genitalia in exchange for a promise of enhanced comfort and prowess.
Because she’s 1/2 Goddess and 1/2 Good Witch on her mom’s side, Lori quietly performs mental hocus-pocus to magically melt away social stigma and industry hype.
The trust clients willingly lay at her altar is something Lori treats with great respect and gratitude.
