He moved on to own a sports training business, a web consulting company, and several failed attempts at startups that seemed like good ideas at the time. He ran the Business Experiment, and is currently working on a video yellow pages idea. He has been blogging for 4 years atBusinesspundit.com.

Chad Holder is a native of Henderson, KY and a 1996 graduate of Murray State University.

In 2000, he moved into health care marketing where he continues today. In 2006, he started his own advertising consulting business as a side job that has yet to really take off.
