Hey, I’m Kai and I’ve been involved in some spectrum of Marketing for the past 10 years: advertising, professional blogging, editorial management, SEO, SEM, e-commerce, social media management, product photography, visual branding, art direction, copywriting, web design, and content development. I’ve spent the majority of my professional career helping multi-million dollar companies and government agencies reach their strategic goals. I’ve been blogging since the late 90s and I even had my own blog that earned me a full-time income in the days where that wasn’t really common.


People often ask me how to start a business, how to build a website, and where to start with marketing. And, honestly, I’m always encouraging other people to either start a business or level up in their current business. Since I was doing a lot of freelance marketing and since I love being around motivated entrepreneurs, Coupdose was born. The mission of Coupdose is simply to share my knowledge and experience with passionate solopreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs to help them get clear, get organized, and make it easier for them to take action to make their entrepreneurial dreams a reality. You’re in the right place if you want to skip the fluff, get focused, and start taking consistent action to grow your businesses—efficiently.

The Origins of Coupdose


Coupdose is a word that I made up in May of 2015. Pronounced the same way you would pronounce the word kudos, it’s a combination of the words coup and dose. Since a coup is a highly successful, unexpected stroke, act, or move; a clever action or accomplishment and a dose is the measured quantity of a therapeutic agent to be taken at one time, they perfectly articulate the mission of creating this brand: to incite people to act!


I believe the one thing that separates super successful people from people who feel stuck and stagnant in their lives is action. How many times have you seen a product and thought to yourself, ‘I could have done that’? I know I have done that on numerous occasions. But, we don’t have to do that anymore. We can take strategic steps each day, each moment, big or small, to start making our dreams a reality.


Let’s go!
