They say great minds think alike. While I don’t claim to be as brilliant as my friend Chris Brogan, there’s something in the water this week. Yesterday, I told you about Exploring Social Media, an online resource for marketing, public relations, social media and online communications. Today, I’m tickled to tell you about Chris’s new project with our mutual buddy Joe Sorge called Kitchen Table Companies.

Like ESM, Kitchen Table Companies is an education community. But this one is for entrepreneurs and small business owners and focuses on all aspects of business — not just marketing. FInance, operations, management, distribution and more are the focal point here. It’s a place for multi-faceted learning about small business ownership and entrepreneurship.

Kitchen Table Companies

Also unlike ESM, Kitchen Table Companies is a six-week, online course with a community underneath. Full membership in the community is $597 for the year. That price includes everything — six week course, webinars, interviews, teleseminars, and ebook and 24/7 access to the community. Knock $100 off the price and get everything plus three months of forum access. The ebook is offered for $97 as a stand-alone product and the monthly forum access only is $47 per month.

Now let me tell you why I know you’ll get value out of this. Chris Brogan does a lot of things, but one thing he does better than anything else (and often better than anybody else) is produce very high-value content. You’re going to learn a ton from him and his experiences as an entrepreneur and business owner. But in my opinion, and I don’ t think Chris would disagree, the big selling point in this whole thing is Joe Sorge. Joe is the man behind social media case study AJ Bombers — a Milwaukee burger institution. He is a small- to medium-sized business owner who has embraced the online world and become a geek like us. But he’s lived and breathed small business outside of the technology bubble. The guy owns restaurants, not web startups.

The practical, real-world advice you’ll get from Joe, and that which Chris can offer too, will be worth far more than a $597 price for one year. Do the math, folks. That’s not a whole lot of money each month to get the level of content and value you’re going to get out of this thing.

Go to and sign up today.

And NO! I don’t get anything if you do. There’s no affiliate link on this page that buys me a cheeseburger. I know Joe and Chris well. I’d recommend this online course and community to anyone seeking help for their small business or entrepreneurial efforts. Period.

    Jason, thanks so much for sharing our launch with your readers. We're pretty darn excited and can't wait to share and grow this small business community.

    And congrats to you and your team on your own launch of Exploring Social Media. What a great resource that promises to be!

    Next burger's on me, man! :)

      I'm really excited for you guys, Joe. The fact that the content is based on

      business and not another web marketing thing (like mine …heh) is going to

      be huge. Happy to tell folks about it!

    This is why you stand above the crowd. I agree that KTC is definitely going to be a wonderful resource for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Chris always provides the best in his products and we know that this will be no different.

    Exploring social media is no different. The team you have assembled is top of the line. DJ is email and has a wealth of knowledge for members to be able to create an email marketing campaign that will be successful. As so many are trying to find success in social media, a resource like this was needed. Happy to see that it is you that launched.

    We the friends and the social community have all just got richer in knowledge from both of ESM and KTC.

    Definitely a no brainer to refer people who would be a good match over here. =-)
