Featured on Inc.com's list of 100 Podcasts That Will Make You Smarter, Better, and Wiser, and on the Fit Small Business list of best small business podcasts, this show is designed to help small business owners, salespeople, and aspiring entrepreneurs with the various aspects of business success. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month and have a great lineup of guests and topics scheduled. We’ll be talking about everything from sales to employee issues; from technology to social media; from work-life balance to exploring uncharted territory. I love interaction! I’d much rather have dialogue with the audience and guests than spend an hour lecturing. So please, feel free to participate. My goal is to help you remove challenges so that you can realize your own success with your business.
