Neil K Carroll: On this episode of the Smarter Business podcast, we have CJ Maurer. CJ, welcome. 

CJ Maurer: Thanks, Neil. 

Neil K Carroll: Yeah. CJ is starting up a new company called The Gist. And now I'm gonna give CJ a moment to kind of walk through what your services are. 

CJ Maurer: Well, first of all, thank you for having me here. I don't know how long it took me trying to poke you to get me on this podcast. 

Neil K Carroll: It's a very, very popular podcast to be on. 

CJ Maurer: Well, I just love the idea of making content and doing podcasts like I want to be part of it. It's something I'm looking into myself as well. But no, seriously, thanks. This is cool.

That's really what inbound marketing is as a mechanism to unlock growth. 

Neil K Carroll: Excellent. So in terms of maybe products or services, if you were to go and tell somebody kind of this is what we do. You would say inbound services consulting or do you
