Personal Quote
Peace If Possible. Truth At All Costs.
Anthony (Ant) Blair began walking down the culinary road at the age of 16 when his mother became angry and stopped cooking for the household. By necessity he had to learn how to cook the basics - Mac & Cheese, Hot Dogs, and Eggs. From there necessity became curiosity. Working at a local grocery store, Ant had the opportunity to see foods he'd never seen before. Ant started to experiment with new foods and started to enjoy the cooking experience.

In his early twenties, Ant became a dishwasher a new local restaurant. The restaurant was one of the first theme restaurants in the area and was quite a busy spot. Ant quickly moved up the ranks and became head pizza cook and filled in on fryers and sautee' when needed.

After putting in his 4 years as a cook Ant founded Dependable Advertsing in 2009 and has since expanded the firms reach across the Midwest. Ant’s guidance, core philosophies, and strong principles drive the strategic development and direction of both Dependable and its client list.

Early in his career, Ant was an active technologist dabbling in a variety of hardware and software that he evangelized to businesses. Here he developed his principles of education, hard work, and integrity. As he provided solutions to retail and service industries, Ant’s ability to execute larger and larger solutions grew exponentially and made him a premiere online marketer. Within just 1 year of graduating college Ant was recognized as one of West Michigan’s top online marketers and entrepreneurs.

When it comes to his business, Ant applies philosophies of swift and thorough diligence, sound planning, effective management, and driving value through proven, intelligent marketing systems rather than digital hocus pocus. His pioneering vision of combining traditional marketing principles with mobile technology insight, was the direct result of the combination of these philosophies. For example, in 60 days, Dependable Advertising enabled an emergency services company to generate a cash flow of $30,000 a month in the ultra competitive New York City market.

Ant has appeared on local television, business publications and videos, holiday cards, and was featured as one of In Business magazine's Top 40 Under 40.

At 26, Ant made a long term decision to follow Jesus and serve Jehovah. Currently 42 years old, resides in Columbus, Indiana with his wife. When not serving in his role at Dependable, Ant participates in youth and men's groups, applying the same wisdom and principles of hard work that he does to his business. He also maintains active interests in spiritual formation, writing, and cooking. Ant holds an Associates of Business degree from Baker College and is a Certified Christian Life Coach

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
