Tim_CastlemanTim Castleman is a rising young star in the internet marketing world and has recently been a speaker at the Warrior Forum 2012 event.

I like him.

To me he comes across as intelligent, articulate and funny, but you can’t please everyone, and there are those who describe him as a “jerk”.

By his own admission he swears sometimes during his webinars and presentations, and that’s not something I like to hear.

That’s not because I’m a prude, but because as adults we are all role models for our children and they learn by example.

Sadly, my years as a support assistant in a secondary school revealed not everyone shares my view, because the language coming from some of those young people was quite disgusting. However, it  was clear from listening to their parents swear words formed a huge part of their every day conversations, so they really didn’t have a lot to aspire to.

I’m told it takes 21 days to form a habit,so clearly many of those parents had been practicing for a long time, and the problem with habits is they’re often hard to break.

Now I’m not suggesting Tim’s language is profound, because  to be honest, I’ve never heard him say anything  to make me cringe in the webinars I’ve listened to.  However, if he does swear on them it would be a shame because he’s articulate, and with so many other wonderfully descriptive words in the Engligh language there’s just no need.

Anyway, recently I had the pleasure of interviewing Tim and can honestly say I enjoyed every minute of our casual chat.

He’s successful both online and offline and provided a  great insight into how he’s become such a prolific product creator.

What makes his products so good in my view is their simplicity and ease of implementation. That and the fact they all have to pass his “Mom” test and since I’m roughly her age, I’m clearly part of his ideal target audience.

 I know you’ll be pleasantly surprised and get a lot of value.

You can also decide for yourself whether he’s a jerk or an entertaining, misunderstood marketer who REALLY cares and wants to help people.

I know which one I’m voting for and when you’ve listened to our chat you can let me know your thoughts in the comments section below, if you like.

Take care
