About Doug & Strick

Doug Sandler and Strickland Bonner have been friends for nearly 20 years. They share a common passion - exemplary customer service. Going above and beyond has always been the key to business for both Doug and Strick. Both have built successful businesses  and both have spent a career over-delivering in a world filled with mediocre service.

As podcasters, hosts of the widely popular Nice Guys on Business Podcast, they created and produced over 425 episodes of their podcast, interviewing hundreds of guests from well known celebrities to everyday working heroes. Their show has been downloaded nearly 800,000 times and shared millions of times in over 169 countries. By November of 2017 they will reach a milestone, 1,000,000 downloads.

Doug and Strick are the perfect pair to bring you professional, award winning service, to help you put your best foot forward.

The Nice Guys on Business

Here's where it all got started. In 2015 Doug and Strick cranked up their microphones for the first time as The Nice Guys. Today, their podcast has exploded on the podcasting space, being awarded iTunes coveted New and Noteworthy status in their first month of podcast production and more recently one of Inc.'s 12 Podcasts That Will Make You A Better Leader. Since then, The Nice Guys have produced over 425 episodes, with nearly one million downloads. Their interviews are a who's who of the business and pop-culture world including digital media guru Gary Vaynerchuk, Arianna Huffington and many more. They don't just have fans, they have funknfans that follow their every move on social media and on air. If you want to laugh while you learn, see why the funknfans are so crazy for The Nice Guys.

President and Production Expert | Podcastologist

Strickland Bonner

Strickland Bonner is the co-host of The Nice Guys on Business and co-founder of Turnkey Podcast. By day, he geeks out as a 9-to-5 data analyst and report expert (yep, he's a numbers guy who loves to crunch data and solve problems for his organization). Blessed with dynamic teenage triplet daughters, he's a proud father who loves his family dearly. But what you may not know about him is that he recently celebrated his 25-year retirement from playing guitar and singing in the variety band Black Tie. When he's not busy producing new shows for Turnkey Podcast clients and publishing five episodes a week of The Nice Guys on Business, he occasionally likes to eat and sleep. (Oh, and don’t try to connect with him on Twitter—he's working hard on his New Year's resolution to be less active on social media. Facebook knows all though—bump into him in the Nice Guys Community and say hi.)

Show Producer | Podcastologist

Anna Nygren

Anna Nygren is the brilliant Graphic Designer of the Nice Guys on Business and is currently pursuing a Design degree at Arizona State. Her marketing experience and schooling connects TurnKey's client to their desired audience with flare. Her friends describe her as a bold and sassy woman that's going to run the world one day. Anna's natural habitat is any cool local coffee shop in Phoenix and is often found with a paintbrush in her hand or striking a pose in front of a camera. Buying her Iced Skinny Vanilla Lattes and telling her how funny she is will no doubt get you on her good side.

Show producer | Podcastologist

Danielle Taylor

Danielle (Dani) is a hardworking, free-thinking, problem-solving millennial who encountered the Nice Guys world by being at the right place at the right time. Serendipitous? Abso-freakin-lutely! As an adventure-seeker and hula hoop queen, Dani took a leap of faith and dove into the podcast universe head first... and hasn’t looked back since. When she’s not working on podcast production, she can be found daydreaming about her superpower of stopping time, kicking anyone’s butt at Monopoly as the beloved thimble (like there’s a better piece?!), or traveling to exotic places (Did we mention she loves to vacation?). Having the flexibility and independence of working on podcast production means you'll never know where in the world Dani is—and she loves that! Catch her if you can on Instagram @M2CEOPodcast or listen to her podcast Millennial to CEO. She would argue it is the best podcast out there!


Social Media DIRECTOR | Podcastologist

Christopher Morales

Christopher is a college undergrad majoring in Communication at Cornell University. In Fall 2017, Lou Diamond spoke to his class and was hiring interns for his podcast. As a Lou Diamond-reject, he was referred to Doug and The Nice Guys on Business! It wasn't long before he was running social media at Turnkey Podcast by posting images, videos, and pretty much anything he feels like because let’s face it, Doug and Strickland aren’t checking anyway! Though he isn't the youngest of the group anymore, you'd certainly be impressed by his consistent tie-adorned dress code for weekly team production calls. You can track his aventuras (Spanish for “adventures“) on Instagram (@Chris23Morales). 


TECH GURU | Podcastologist

Marjorie Alexander

Marjorie Alexander is a podcast producer, environmental consultant, well-dressed hippie, and occasional bossypants. When she's not helping Turnkey clients solve all their tech woes she coaches budding environmental influencers to create impactful and lasting change in their community. Her favorite hobbies include sailing, building tiny houses, and being unofficial tech-support for friends when searching Google until 3am has yielded no results. A friend once said, "Marjorie likes it when things are wrong" so she can take credit for fixing it...yes, that pretty much sums it up. Marjorie is also the host of A Sustainable Mind podcast where she has interviewed some of the world's most influential environmental changemakers including Bea Johnson of Zero Waste Home and Tom Szaky of TerraCycle.

Podcast editor | PodcastologisT 

Britnie Leverett

Britnie is happy to say that she is a podcast editor for Turnkey Podcasting. By chance and being nice to the right person she landed a job with Turnkey Podcasting. But she isn’t some one trick pony. When she isn’t doing the grunt work for Nice Guys on Business and many other podcast shows she runs her own cake business which she has brilliantly named Sweet Treats. Culinary skills aside, she’s also one tough cookie. Britnie is a brain cancer survivor and never takes a day for granted, which led her to getting her Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice in 2014. When she is not editing podcasts, you can find Britnie at Disneyland, baking cakes or buying makeup.

Podcast editor | Podcastologist

Jessie Taylor

Jessie Taylor is the youngest member of the podcast production team. Though she's still in high school and was hired while not having a driver’s license, don’t underestimate her and her mad editing skills! When she’s not attending high school, dreaming of the day when she gets to control her own curfew, or using her editing skills to make you sound more professional (by taking out 3,000 ums), then you’ll find her with her track team and running long distances (Yes, she chooses to do this with her own freewill). If you talked to Dani (show producer, aka her sister), she would say that Jessie learned everything from her; however, Jessie has her own spunk that she acquired all on her own.


Podcast editor | Podcastologist

Alyssa Simons

Alyssa Simons is arguably the most sarcastic addition to the podcast editing team. She encountered this lovely opportunity from her even lovelier lifelong friend, Danielle Taylor. When she isn’t frolicking through a field of dandelions or day-dreaming of an incredibly handsome French man to sweep her off her feet, you can find her painting that same field of dandelions (or the incredibly handsome French man). Providing free horrible life advice, or traveling the world surrounded by family and friends, Alyssa is the most kind, compassionate, hilarious, loving individual.. up until you cut her off in traffic. She would do anything for the people she cares about (or a pint of beer) and cannot wait to add her eclectic eccentric mind to the Turnkey Podcast team.

Lexi Cook

Lexi Cook is a heavily tattooed, punk rock-loving, colored hair-wielding, small business owner. She is a kick-ass hair stylist & nail-tech by day (her mad straight razor skills are enough to put most men to shame) and is shaking things up as the newest podcastologist at Turnkey by night. She also kisses booboo's, reads bedtime stories, plays dolls and dressup...basically anything her 5-year-old daughter cons her into while trying to convince her 12-year-old son to do the girly stuff with them too. She loves all three of her AWESOME jobs, especially the last one!

When she has a moment to herself she loves riding horses, dancing the night away, running amok up with friends and looking up fun hair & nail ideas to try on her Guinea-pig Danielle.


social media intern | Podcastologist

Bahaar Bhatia

Bahaar is currently a undergraduate student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign majoring in Marketing. She is a digital marketing enthusiast, and her role at Turnkey Podcast involves running the social media pages with our social media director. When she is not designing promotional material or obsessing over what time is best to make a social media post, she can be found dancing, drinking boba, or staring at the TV screen during the NBA season. She also loves talking, so feel free to say "hi" through her on social media (@bahaar.bhatia)!

Karen Felix

Karen is an undergraduate student majoring in Communication at Cornell University. As a social media intern, she co-manages our social media profiles to promote our clients, their podcasts and additional content with the social media team. Outside of the social media realm, you can find her obsessing over poetry, creating an endless amount of music playlists, or exploring new food places. If you’d like to see for yourself, follow her on Instagram (@Karenfelix_)!
