QTI Power Hour with your Host Jason Lofton & Co-host Steve Kucharski
Guest Anthony Williams, Market President with the Mid America Minority Suppliers Development Council joins the QTI Power Hour to discuss the Council, a nationally recognized organization - the changes in the council over the past few years - and how the council can be a great investment for MBE's -providing information and opportunities to minority owned business with corporations in order to grow their business
The benefits of MBE Certification really boil down to one word: access. Certification gives MBEs exclusive access to top corporate purchasing agents, premium networking events, searchable supplier databases, affordable consulting services, technology programs, and vital introductions to nationally known corporations.
But certification can come with challenges that include battling the impression that certification programs give these companies a handout. On this episode of The QTI Power Hour, Hosts Jason Lofton and Steve Kucharski seperate the facts from the fiction.

Are those contingent decision-makers aware of their vital role and are they prepared to insure that business moves forward and the operation runs as smoothly as possible?
Hosts Jason Lofton and Steve Kucharski discuss on this episode of the QTI Power Hour plus your weekly sports update and predictions on some upcoming events plus the nightmare of scheduling during the holiday season.

Funding Your Business with King and Kyle
Has come from the connection of Kyle Freeman the author of the new book "Going Public" How I Took My Company Public.
This book is about my personal journey in the venture capital business and how I used venture capital to take my company public. Most businesses fail in the first five years and most of the time due to a lack of capital. What if there was a way to get the amount of capital you need for your business? Would that be of interest to you or a business owner you know? Then get this book for yourself or a friend.
Christopher King heads up King Connections and Conscious Capital in the D.C. Metro area. The two organizations King works with helps business owners find their niche and gain exposure to expanding opportunities and emerging markets. While doing all these good deeds King reminds the business owners to remain conscious of the community and the well being of man kind.
Together the two have created the blogtalkradio show "Funding Your Business with King and Kyle" every Friday at 11am(est). Listen and learn to gain knowledge and experience so you don't make the mistakes most businesses make.
Enjoy the show and tell your friends, we look forward to having you listen in to the show.
