    EP Creative Enterprises featured on The Business Forum Show

    in Business

    Join host Kevin Hunter and guest Ellen Palestrant of EP Creative Enterprises on The Business Forum Show to talk breaking new pathways in business and life. You have to give yourself permission to try new things, fail, make mistakes, learn, get better at controlling your fear, and ultimately improve yourself and your business. EP Creative Enterprises is a creativity consultant. 


    Here are some thoughts from Ellen:


    The name of my company, EP Creative Enterprises, reflects what I do which is write, paint, produce, and share my thoughts about creativity with others. At this point, I use both my non-fiction book, HAVE YOU EVER HAD A HUNCH, The Importance of Creative Thinking, and my poetic, theatrical fantasy for all ages THE WORLD OF GLIMPSE (WITH ITS ACCOMPANYING DVD) as vehicles explore and discuss what is to me, a fascinating subject: Creativity.


    Know that a concept is not enough. It is important for that concept to reach its full potential be it a completed product - or what ever you hope it will be come. Perseverance is everything and so is passion. I know that in real life, it is not always possible to love what you do every day, but try to set aside some time to engage in your passion.

    Hiring Challenges - Kevin Hunter and David Ford on The Business Forum Show

    in Business

    At The Business Forum Show, we often hear that business owners have trouble finding the right people to fill open positions. Don't get us wrong - there is a lot to consider in the hiring process. Employers need someone with the correct skill set for the job who is happy with the wages, demands of the position. However, the most important part of the hiring process is the interview and here's why: You can see someone's skills and experience on paper, but you can't tell what their attitude is. We've found that it's much easier to hire a willling participant and teach them the skills they need to know than it is to have a technically sound person who is stubborn or impersonable. 


    Whatever the case may be, consider what hosts Kevin Hunter and David Ford have to make the hiring process more transparent for you. Plan for success. Make it happen!


    What makes The Business Forum Show so unique? We aren’t reporting business news or talking about what happened in the stock market today. Our cast has been in and out of thousands of different companies and we understand both domestic and international markets. Regardless of what your business model is, it’s likely we’ve seen it employed in countless other businesses and understand both the strengths and weaknesses of your plan. Every day we witness the sweat, blood, and tears that owners have invested in their companies. Perhaps more importantly, we’ve seen some of the most unique companies, run by some of the most amazing business owners, many of whom are breaking all the ‘traditional rules’ of business. Do you have any idea what unreasonable limits you might have you placed on your own success? It’s time to find out. Tune in today!

    CEO Crash Course from Kevin & Dave on The Business Forum Show

    in Business

    Have you ever wanted a business of your own? Going from the "Averge Joe" to a "CEO" is a bit more complicated than you might think, but it doesn't mean it's impossible. With clear goals and objectives, a good strategic plan, and a willingness to get outside your comfort zone, you have a pretty good shot. Then we need to point out that it's imperative that you get an outside voice involved in your business, because you will overlook and miss opportunity every day in your organization, by default. 


    Join Kevin Hunter and David Ford as we look as some of the challenges of moving into business ownership, and some of the strategies in overcoming them.


    Why do we broadcast The Business Forum Show? The answer is as simple as this: 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 Kevin Hunter and David Ford weekdays here on BlogTalkRadio for a 24 hour streaming show of our broadcast.

    Swanson Bark & Wood Products on The Business Forum Show

    in Business

    Host Kevin Hunter features guest John Leber from Swanson Bark and Wood Products, Inc in Longview, Washington. Swanson Bark and Wood Products is a woodwaste recycling facility.


    Here are some thoughts from John:


    My advice is to be patient. Don’t get too spun up over any one thing. Life will hand you things that will give you ulcers. How you deal with those things will determine the number of ulcers you end up with. 
    Have a plan. Figure out what you’re going to sell, who you’re going to sell it to, how you’re going to make it, how much you can sell it for and how much it’s going to cost you to make it. If it doesn’t look like it’s going to work, take a pass and try the next thing. If you keep a positive attitude, there will be a next thing, probably more next things than you can handle. Love life. Share your wisdom
