Join Hosts Kevin Hunter and David Ford for an episode about personal growth. Many people say that they want to change how they live, how they run their business, etc, but end of never taking action to make that change. Hear some examples on how to take ownership, be responsible, and be accountable for your change instead of continuing to fall into the trap of blame, denial, and excuses.
Change has always been a necessary aspect of life and work, and our world is changing more rapidly than ever. It is likely that you will have to cope with a variety of changes in the near future. Your success and fulfillment - your emotional, mental, spiritual and physical well-being - depend on how well you adapt to change.
People react, respond and adjust to change in a sequence of six predictable stages. The Change Cycle model identifies the thoughts, feelings and behaviors associated with each stage of change. There is no better map to assist you in navigating through the changes in your life.
Hosts Kevin Hunter and David Ford discuss how every business is the same. All businesses need certain things in place in order to survive. The biggest element is systems to run their business. McDonalds is the greatest example of how the system sells the business. Eighteen year old kids can run a McDonalds restaurant and make it produce billions per year because the company has produced a fool-proof system that can be duplicated by employees all around the world.
Hosts Kevin Hunter and David Ford have a little fun with comparing business to binocular soccer. Imagine trying to run a business with no vision, no clear idea of where you're headed, or no ability to see where you're going in business... Actually, 97% of business owners run their businesses just like this, which is why they don't see a 10-year business anniversary. As a business owner, you need to take off the binoculars and see things from a fresh perspective so you can actually make a positive difference in your business.
In this episode of the overcome your limits radio show, Christopher E Powell interviews Author and Anti-Bullying Speaker about her story and about her special relationship with a unique canine companion.
Gabrielle Ford never dreamed that a long-eared coonhound could change her life. But that’s just what happened when she cared for her ailing pet Izzy and found the voice to help others in need as a nationally-known motivational speaker. Today Gabe’s incredible story has drawn media attention from The Today Show, Cosmopolitan Magazine and Animal Planet, among others. Her 2009 autobiography Still Dancing shares even more of the inspirational details from her life as a way to encourage others that anything is possible.
As a child, Gabrielle loved dance and dreamed of becoming a prima ballerina. That dream was shattered by a rare genetic neuromuscular disease, Friedreich’s Ataxia which would eventually place her in a wheelchair. Gabe not only struggled with the devastation of the illness, but also endured constant and cruel bullying from classmates. The constant torment took her on a path of depression and isolation.
That all changed when Izzy, a long-eared coonhound pup, entered Gabe’s life and landed them on Animal Planet TV. Izzy became Gabe’s best friend and constant companion. When this special friend mysteriously developed a condition mirroring Gabe’s, Gabe re-entered the world to get Izzy the best treatment available.
Speaking out for the voiceless Izzy gave her the courage to speak out for another voiceless group: the thousands of children bullied in American schools every day.
Failure is something nobody is immune to. In fact, the world's most successful people have failed more than anyone. It is that unwavering dedication to what they believe in that drives them to keep finding a way, until they do.
Join Kevin Hunter and David Ford as they discuss how to turn failure into success.
Every day, another business owner closes the doors of their business for the last time. Why? Because the truth is that business is very hard, and this statement is supported by the 96% statistic of business owners that never make it to a 10 year anniversary. The good news is that you don't have to be on the wrong side of this statistic. What we've learned is that with good written goals and objectives, a sound strategic plan in place, and your own willingness to step outside of your comfort zone, you can give yourself a 75-80% chance of success.
On The Business Forum Show, we focus on the challenges of business, and the things that keep you awake at night. That's why our stories are so relatable, because every business owners suffers from very similar things.

Join hosts Kevin Hunter and David Ford on The Business Forum Show as they discuss 2 types of leaders in business.
"I" leaders create an environment that promotes selfsihness, where people worry about personal recognition and getting credit for what they do. This type of leader spends a lot of their time playing the part of the victim, always blaming someone else for what goes wrong.
"We" leaders create an environment where people tend to have more fun, share the work load, and work more creatively as a team. This type of leader credits others for successes in the business, recognized that they need their team, and have a victor mentality.
Tonight's Topics (If we can hit them all):
1. Looking at good players like Ohio State CB Courtney Roby and Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis, we will talk about how thin/small players fall on draft boards and get drafted below less athletic players at the same position and why? We will also look at how teams with less accurate QB’s might view a bigger WR like Texas A&M’s Mike Evans.
2. With all the initial hype that there could be more QB's drafted in the first round then there were in 1983, and with Oregon QB Marcus Mariota staying in school and Georgia QB Aaron Murray and LSU QB Zach Mettenberger tearing their ACLs, now we could end up with only one or two. Thoughts????
3. While many believe Minnesota and Houston to making head coach changes and possible GM changes, what do we think should be done by Redskins?
4. Who do we think will win the conference championship games and why? The NFC seems to have two or three teams that could be classified as elite (SF, Seattle and NO even though Seattle blew them out on Monday), we will compare them to teams in the AFC.
5. Also, Mel Kiper said if Florida State QB Jameis Winston were in the 2014 NFL Draft he would without question be the No.1 overall pick. We will talk about how the misperceptions get put out there by the media and why? It is not to say that Winston will not be chosen that high, but if he doesn't people will be talking about how he would have been had he been allowed to be enter the draft this year.

If you aren't game planning your success, you aren't being intentional about where you are going. That means any place you arrive at will be good enough? Are you tired of being in business just to pay the bills? Is your business running you, or are you running your business? Make game planning a part of the way you do business, and the future will set you free.
Have you discovered the keys to your success in business? Unfortunately, most business people haven't figured out what they need to do to increase their odds of success. This explains why 40% of the 1,000,000 people who start a business venture each year end of failing in the first 12 months. 80% end up failing before 5 years, and 96% never see a 10 year anniversary in business. Would you start a business if you knew your chances of success were only 4%?
Keys to Success in Business
1. Have Clear, Written, Goals and Objectives.
2. Have a solid Strategic Plan - the "How to accomplish your goals"
3. Step outside your Comfort Zone
4. Get an outside influence involved in your business.
The keys or steps outlined above sound simple, but establishing them and getting it right is not. Join us each week day as we talk about all the issues and challenges business people face, and how you can effectively implement and use the four keys to give you a 75-80% chance of success in anything you do.
