    BLT - Business Life Transitions with guest Marika Hamilton

    in Marketing

    This week's guest is Marika Hamilton.


    From co-owner of a multi-million dollar software company to restaurant entrepreneur, it was a stage 3 cancer diagnosis that transitioned Marika Hamilton's life, work, and priorities.
    .
    Marika was quick to realize the cancer diagnosis was a massive platform for personal development and the spring board for her next endeavor.  Believing that attitude is in large part responsible for outcome, Marika helps others understand how to see the gift of cancer, and how any other perceived negative circumstances can truly bring out the best of us, our best work and our most fulfilled existence.


    An advocate for personal responsibility, especially when it comes to our health, Marika declined conventional cancer treatment and works hard to help others see the importance of being proactive in all areas of life.

    BLT - Business Life Transitions with guest Fred Weber

    in Marketing

    This week's guest is Fred Weber.


    Fred began his professional life on an academic track.  With a Ph.D. in philosophy from Northwestern, he joined the faculty of the University of Hawaii at Hilo.  Involvement in a public program in the humanities, however, led him to the state-based program of the National Endowment for the Humanities, in Providence, RI.  When federal funding for the arts and humanities grew scarce, a newly acquired MBA helped get him back to his native Chicago in a marketing position with Follett Corporation.  The fit was excellent, and Fred stayed with Follett for nearly 30 years, retiring 3 years ago as SVP of Wholesale and Distribution Services.  But, this year he returned to the college store industry as CEO of the ICBA, a retail cooperative of over 150 institutionally owned college stores. Business Life Transitions is a radio show that talks about you and your business.  It will help you understand how to re-invent yourself, your business, and your life.
