We are excited to have Big Blend as our champion partner in our campaign to bring the 8 Keys of Excellence to 50 million people – creating a nation of excellence, a world of excellence!” says Bobbi DePorter, president of Quantum Learning Network.


Linda Kissam

“I’ve worked with many professionals in the wine and travel industry¸ but I have not met one that understands their profession and their clients as well as Big Blend Radio & TV does. Lisa Smith & Nancy Reid leave no detail unattended; from the affordable pricing, to the weekly contact, to the shows related to the destination, to the post follow up. Big Blend has created a positive¸ compelling and educational format that assists me in my efforts to market my clients and myself. I have received so much more than I anticipated – a sign that an expert team is in control.” Linda Kissam, Travel Writer, Publicist and Kissam Consulting.


Leah Launey & Peter Sodhy

“This year we were a little concerned that we might not have a good summer, because the Eurozone was depressed, and our European guests who normally book in January for June, July and August were hardly booking at all. In the past, our booking percentage had been about 50% Europeans and 50% Americans. As it turns out, this year we have been very pleased to fill our calendar with Californians and other Americans coming to visit their national parks. We believe that Big Blend, their Spirit of America Tour and their National Park Planner have had an awful lot to do with that. Thank you, Big Blend!” Leah Launey & Peter Sodhy, Three Rivers Bed & Breakfast.


John & Yvonne Peach

 “We appreciate your help and knowledge on bringing the 10 travel writers to Yuma for the Yuma Centennial Celebration. You have helped educate the public, as well as John and I, on how we can make Yuma a major tourism destination—for both business and leisure travelers. We have always welcomed you, here at the Coronado Motor Hotels, as good friends and colleagues all working for the same goals. You have showed us how important good marketing can be. We have learned that advertising and social media are very important when you are trying to brand your business. You are welcome here at the Historic Coronado Motor Hotel, your home away from home.” Yvonne & John Peach, Coronado Motor Hotel and Yuma Landing Bar & Grill.

“Lisa and Nancy – the ladies with the Magic Marketing Plan – have increased my web traffic five-fold. As an artist and art dealer in a small market, I depend on the internet for sales. Through ads in the Big Blend family of on-line magazines, radio programs and articles, I hear from people all over the world and the number of people making purchases has greatly increased. I appreciate their working with me to tailor a marketing package that suits my needs. Their creative thinking and great communication with me lets me know they strive to make my business better.” Victoria Chick, Artist & Print Collector.
