Patrick Hess

Husband, father, entrepreneur, freelance writer, and goofball

Raised in the R.V. Capital of America (Elkhart, Indiana) and spending his early adult to mid-thirties traveling to 27 countries conducting business with auto importers and distributors, 47-year-old Patrick Hess experienced the highs and lows of corporate America on his sojourn to success in business. Resigning in 1999 as Vice President of International Sales and Marketing for the now defunct automotive converter, Mark III (Ocala, Florida), he started his own import and export consulting company. The business evolved into a traditional U.S. marketing consulting firm, which as of February 2016, celebrated it’s 17th year in business.

He has been married to his wife, Melissa, since July 1995 and shares an adventurous life with their teenage son, Spencer, who is a national pop recording artist and actor on the TV sitcom, “iShine Knect” (TBN Network).

Working to help build his son’s music and acting career since 2010, Patrick has acquired a unique perspective into the entertainment industry from a parent­/manager’s point­ of ­view. All these experiences, including being a bi­vocational pastor for several years, have been a great foundation for a colorful entrepreneur storyteller who blogs and shares the semi­business/semi­personal perspective of life with a teenage pop artist trying to make it big in the entertainment industry.
