About Charlie

Charles Gaudet

Charles E. Gaudet II is an author, small business marketing coach, consultant and international speaker.

Charles GaudetKnown as “The Entrepreneur’s Marketing Champion,” Charles Gaudet offers much more than just business and expert marketing advice.

He has made his personal mission to help entrepreneurs and business owners create better versions of themselves, and to inspire them to understand the important role they play in society.

He maintains that there is more to being an entrepreneur than just selling good products – it is the responsibility of those providing goods and services to create advantages for their customers, to be actively involved in creating solutions and providing a greater results.  A good result begets ever greater profits!

Charlie sees the role of the entrepreneur as having the ability to bring happiness to an unhappy situation, to provide hope where there might otherwise be none. His work with coaching clients and Insiders’ Club Members, as well as the advice he provides on his blog and through various media channels, is dedicated to helping business owners recognize this power.

He inspires entrepreneurs to be catalysts for positive change in their customers’ lives through providing exceptional service, offering expert, reliable information, and by going the extra mile to establish long-term relationships based on mutual respect and trust.

Through a focus on accountability, honesty, and integrity, Charles drives businesses to set the bar high. When business owners find this higher purpose of providing true value, the culture of business shifts from a focus on profits to a focus on people – to the long-term benefit of everyone involved.

This devotion to a significant change in the culture of business is precisely why Charlie’s been nominated for a Positive Impact Award. As business culture shifts to a focus on providing a customer with the absolute best value and greatest results possible, consumer culture also changes to value expertise and personal relationships over cheap prices.

This drives consumers to spend their money with the companies offering the greatest good to their respective communities, in turn building local economies, strengthening relationships among businesses and patrons, and creating residual happiness through satisfied customers and growing small businesses. This is most certainly a positive impact!
