Linda Cristal & Son Collaborating on New Business Venture
By Tina Sweet
Linda Cristal partnered with her son
Jordan Wexler to create new website.
It’s amazing what you find out when you forward an innocent email. I forwarded one not too long ago to Jordan Wexler, (Linda Cristal’s son), and he brought me up-to-date on a new business venture called Smart.Guy.com.
SmartGuy.com is a free online consumer directory, business referral network, education library, and marketing center for consumers, businesses, and service providers. It is a collaboration effort between TV and film star Linda Cristal, best known to all of us as Victoria in The High Chaparral, and her son, lead generation guru Jordan Wexler, who founded and sold internet giants RealEstateLeads.com and MortgageLeads.com.
SmartGuy.com helps small businesses combat recessionary pressure by uniting them under a single community network divided by zip code. Smart Guy only accepts 3 professionals per category per zip code and lists them in the online consumer directory. Their information is also transmitted to other non-competing professionals within their local area for introduction and alliance building. Each local Smart Guy network consists of up to 1,200 other non-competing local businesses all with the same goal – to provide their community residents with superior service and to unite together to leverage their marketing and referral efforts.
SmartGuy.com is on target to be the national leader in uniting local commerce by connecting people, small businesses and communities.
In addition to the great networking possibilities, SmartGuy.com also has great business tools and informative articles. Check every day for new articles, tools and other business building strategies and enjoy the synergy of up to 1,200 local service and business professionals seeking to recession-proof their business by joining a business network of top-rated professionals! If you’re a small business owner, visit the site and sign up—it‘s free! If you’re looking for a service provider, check it out! Read the article on Linda Cristal that follows. You’ll find it under the “Smart Guys” category along with other articles about people who have made an impact on our society.
Jordan Wexler founded SmartGuy.com to provide consumers with an advanced local directory of professionals, and to give local small businesses the tools to build their business.
Jordan is quoted as saying, “Our mission is to provide consumers with the most advanced local directory to assist them in making smart choices; to provide local small businesses with the tools and strategic alliances to build their business through referrals; to leverage their marketing and help even the playing field when competing against large national franchises.”
I caught up with Linda and asked her about the new venture. She is very proud of the website they have put together and very proud of Jordan. She said, “Whenever Jordan starts on a project he puts everything he has into it.” I was about to ask her where he gets that from, when she added “I guess he gets that from me.” Linda went on say that her father also had that same drive and determination. So it’s definitely in the genes!
Enjoy the article from SmartGuy.com about Linda, it’s wonderful! Interested in becoming a member of SmartGuy.com, contact Jordan for more information at:
