My first blog was in 2003 as an attempt to bring my love for writing into a format that I could share with friends. It was not until 2015 that I discovered the blog as a form of marketing which other businesses could pay for me to write. 

That was a match made in heaven! Or at least a match made somewhere. In the last 5 years, I have incorporated my writing with other skills I picked up here and there and everywhere in between to build a full-service marketing agency for small businesses. 

Although I am currently working on my MBA at the Jack Welch Management Institute, my business expertise comes from the varied work I have done for my and interesting job experiences I have had over the years.

  • Given shots to cows? Check
  • Delivered pizzas? Check
  • Torn apart lath and plaster with a 6-foot crowbar? Check.

In case you don’t notice this when you look at the varied life experiences of most of the team members in real-time marketing, we value a wide variety of experience because it helps our team members to understand you and your customers. 

Nathanael Paul Davis, (and yes, you can call me Nathanael, Nathan, Nate, Paul, Gimli, Frodo, or Phano. I really don’t care. Just don’t call me Daryl) is the founder of Paul Davis Solutions, a founding team member of Aletheia Christian College, the husband to an amazing wife and dad to two amazing kids.
