Tinderbox Consulting has one goal: to help small business owners challenge the traditional way of running and marketing a small business.
Mission: To serve God by serving others. More specifically, our goal is help small business owners be successful in the running and marketing of their businesses.
If Tinderbox Consulting had a tagline, it would be “Working Smarter.” It’s about being intentional in the way you do your work, the way you market, and the way you communicate (internally and externally).
And now, meet the Tinderbox team:
Founder Josh King
Josh has an exciting and diverse background that has led him to natural expertise in the emerging media space. Working in the fast-paced radio and television news environment, as a news producer and on-air reporter, Josh built a foundation for quick emerging media evolution. Moving into corporate marketing leadership, Josh has both pioneered multi-media branding strategies and led business development initiatives. Josh’s expertise and passion for emerging media has lead him to become one of the up and coming voices in the new media sphere. Currently, Josh runs his own business, Tinderbox Consulting, and is an active volunteer with SCORE.
CFO Natalie King
What started as simply helping her husband Josh run the books for Tinderbox has turned into a full-fledged second career for Natalie. Although determined to stay at home with her three beautiful kids, Natalie’s role in Tinderbox is ever increasing as she manages the day-to-day finances of the company. How Natalie manages to be a full-time mom AND keep Tinderbox in the black is nothing short of miraculous. Now you may be curious as to Natalie’s first career. What started in the radio biz - where she met Josh - turned into a bright future in tourism. After leaving the KXLY Broadcast Group in 2006, Natalie joined the Spokane Regional Convention and Visitor’s Bureau (now Visit Spokane) as Partner Sales and Services Manager. She was so efficient and productive in her role at Visit Spokane that when she left to raise her kiddos, they had to fill her role with two people.
Marketing Alyssa Bashor
Alyssa is a recent graduate of Gonzaga University, her studies focused on International Relations and Entrepreneurial Leadership. Alyssa’s background in everything from collections to portable toilets to wine (strictly business, of course!) honed her dogged determination, high spirits, and willingness to get her hands dirty! After conjuring up her inner marketer for her position at Tinderbox Consulting, Alyssa has been able to work with small, entrepreneurial businesses at all stages of development. She is now, finally able to claim some real credentials as a digital native. (Which includes a twitter handle! Connect with Alyssa @mad_methods).
