Joe has spent his entire life learning the power and influence of media and marketing. His family owned Recommended TV and Appliances on the south side of Indianapolis for over 40 years, and he and his 8 sisters always say they grew up in a TV repair shop. Joe's father started the business with a cardboard cigar box, replacement test tube, and screwdriver.  This local business was so popular that it became the primary "family-owned and operated" TV and Appliance store on the south side.   Because of his father's influence in serving others, Joe has also been passionate about adding value to my clients.  Here's a video Joe produced about his family business for the Perry Township Historical Society Meeting in Nov 2021

Joe Ake Studios offers business owners specialized audio, video, and media services. He provides media technical consulting to corporations, community partners, and entrepreneurs; through education, creation, and collaboration, Joe builds a trusting partnership to build media services for your business, and when you are ready to connect to your customer globally, learn how to start, host, and monetize your own company podcast.
