TMDS Has Launched

I drew up the blueprints for TMDS back in June, soft-launched in July, and hard-launched just last week. Today, I'm delighted to share the details with you all.

TMDS, which stands for Toronto Mike Digital Services, is my new business of which I am the sole proprietor. There are three streams of revenue:

1. Sponsorship of Toronto Miked Digital Properties
This includes the blog Toronto Mike and the podcast Toronto Mike'd. Sponsorship opportunities exist for both and I'm eager to discuss this with any and all interested parties.

2. Production of Other People's Podcasts
I'm very excited about this aspect of TMDS. There are a plethora of reasons why businesses and individuals should have a podcast, from branding to internal and external communications, and I'm here to handle every detail from A to Z. You bring the content, I'll take care of the rest.

If you represent a business that could benefit from having a professional-grade podcast, or if you think it's something you'd personally enjoy, I want a conversation with you. We can discuss over the phone, over coffee, or over a beer. I urge you to reach out, I'm very friendly!

I have clients who visit my home studio, and clients where I pack up my studio and build it in their office's boardroom. As I often say, if I'm not small and nimble, I'm just small.

And yes, references are available upon request. I know what I'm doing, have a proven track record, and work very well with personalities and situations of all types. Let's talk.

3. Digital Marketing Projects Large and Small
Some clients need a website, web presence management, case studies and press releases written, email marketing consulting, or a restructuring of their website to make it maintainable, integrating digital marketing and demand generation into existing marketing and sales processes. There's a lot to unpack here, from marketing automation to social media strategy to SEO and PPC, and I've got the experience to help. Again, if you require assistance with digital marketing and content creation of any scope, I'm eager to discuss.


I'm excited about TMDS because I'm betting on myself. I promise honesty and quality work with minimal risk to you. I enter this customer acquisition phase with the discipline and passion necessary to help you succeed.

TMDS is open for business! Share the news with anyone who would benefit from working with me. And follow TMDS via the following channels:

Hopefully TMDS will still be a thriving enterprise by the time I'm able to save up enough pennies
(from my sunken-in couch!) to afford not only your immense creativity but your diverse set of skills
as well. Sadly, while you are like a digital ninja akin to a non-lethal Liam Neeson in that cinematic
"Taken" trilogy, my so-called abilities are sadly rather limited to those of the motor mouth/verbal diarrhea variety!! P.S., feel free to use this supportive blurb in any and all TMDS promotional materials!!

This is such an exciting endeavour and seems like a natural extension of what you've done thus far with Toronto Mike'd and of course YBS. I'm sure TMDS will grow to become very successful!

Congratulations Mike! I'm beyond happy for you. Monica and the kids are very lucky to have someone who goes to the lengths and efforts you have to reinvent your career. It sounds like the work will bring you some personal joy as well, which is a terrific thing.

I'm so excited for you Mike! You're going to crush this! Good luck!

Starting your own business and being your own boss to monetize what you are passionate about and really good at is something many people wish they had the opportunity to do, but can never figure out how. You have a huge head start with how well this site and your Podcasting endeavour has become.

All the best of success, Mike.

2 thumbs up on this, you have been on the ground floor of this type of media, and some are just waking up to it.
