Can you really resurect a company that has cratered and plunged you into debt? Well, like the mythic Phoenix of eld, Host Bart Jackson's latest guest, Mr. Marty Metro has achieved this near-unique entrepreneurial feat with his firm Used Carbboard Boxes Company. Metro's firm has bootstrapped itself from begging at banks for payroll, on up to becoming a highly profitable supplier of Walmart. And through the entire metamorphosis, this entrepreneur kept the same product. You don't need to plunge into debt to learn the Metro method of assessing your company/career, finding where you stand, and how to apply a new direction. 'Tis a true parable that can help all of us do a little bootstrapping on our own. Tune in, be fascinated, and learn.
When was the last time someone asked you: What kind of super power do you have? What super power would you like to have? One super power that you could probably use is information reduction and distillation. Storytelling is key to both. Scott Williams, the Founder and CEO of Maga Design, Inc was inspired to build his company because of his love for comic books. Understanding that good design can navigate complexity, drive innovation, and inspire people to act, he has taken communication to the next level by infusing storytelling into his core business execution. This interview will focus on how visualization and storytelling can co-create a successful business innovation strategy. Thanks for tuning in!
With more than $1 trillion in student loans outstanding in this country, crippling debt is no longer confined to dropouts from for-profit colleges or graduate students who owe on many years of education, some of the overextended debtors in years past. As prices soar, a college degree statistically remains a good lifetime investment, but it often comes with an unprecedented financial burden.
Caitlin Kovalkoski, Director of Bank Community Engagement will be our guest tonight to discuss options for students and parents as they manage their Me, Inc. Enterprises effectively.
In this outcome-obsessed society, too many business folks grope desperately for success, forgetting the very reason they were attracted to business in the first place. Host Bart Jackson brings on global hedge fund pioneer Keith Danko as guest, to set us on the infinitely more satisfying path toward a fulfilling career. Having risen with marked success to the top of one of business' most competitive arenas, Danko passes on not a step-by-step guide, but rather an original, carefully thought out philosphy of conduct and attitude that leads to an enriched life, employing the strengths we already possess. Banishing the distractions of futile comparison, competition, and attitude makeovers, Danko invites individuals to manage the processes surrounding them - and guess what? You already hold the tools you need. Absolutely any gentleman or lady seeking more out of their business life will want to listen and learn from from these insights.

“We have been so disenfranchised for so long by supporting every other culture or nationality, other businesses, because we haven’t had any. When we do, when people of African-American descent do take off and start a business, it’s kind of difficult for it to be successful or for it to thrive because the community doesn’t invest into it.” --Jamiel Robinson, CEO of Grand Rapids African American Black Businesses
