The fascinating history of Queen City Album, now QCA. Jim Bosken shares his dad's journey from a guy with a printing press in his basement...to owning a recording studio/record company. He also talks about how the death of the record industry led him to specialty printing...and once again back into the record business. One of my all time favorite shows.
On this episode we talk about coffee. REALLY good coffee...but it's still more than that. It's about having the vision guts to dream big...and the self control to implement your dreams once step at a time. Or, in this case, one cup at a time.
Steve and Liliane talk about the Vaco story. Vaco started with 1 office in 2002 with one office in Nashville. Since then it's grown to more than 30 offices across the US and have become one of the fastest growing companies in America. We also talk about Robynn's mom and dad... Virginia and Tom.
Richard once said to Tommy Boy... "Your dad could sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman and white gloves" Tommy Boy hadn't found his selling style yet. And when he finally DID make a sale...processing and shipping was off THEIR game. Our guest today is Brett Hapel... and his company, Accelerate Accountability, could have helped Tommy Boy, processing and production work together like a well oiled machine!
Myspace is out...I know that now. But do you know what's in and what's the best way to get your message across on Social Media? Kendra Ramirez does...and she reveals the secret sauce in the 3rd segment of the show. Tom Tasset and Robynn Anton co-host.
I'd like to say our first show of 2017 went of without a hitch. I'd LIKE to say that, however from the first moments, craziness ensued. As it turns out, we still managed to put on a show packed full of great social media business ideas. Shay Nartker was our guest...with a surprise visit from Matthew Dooley and Katie Rose.
Give a man or woman a fish and you'll feed them for a day. Team them to fish and you'll feed them for a lifetime. Jim Stahly would probably agree with this proverb. He is a Platinum S.C.O.R.E. mentor. Every year, SCORE volunteers help thousands of entrepreneurs start small businesses and achieve new levels of success in their existing businesses.
Most people don't like talking about themselves...and I would include myself in that majority. But every once in awhile we are forced into action. Like when your scheduled interviewee doesn't show up. Good news is, this is a show about entrepreneurs and I'm one of those. I also know a lot of those...so it worked out ok. During the show I revealed advice that I received over the years that helped me along the way.
If you swing the bat, you're dangerous! Joe Nuxhall used to say this when a pitcher was lucky enough to make contact at the plate once in a great while. It's true. You have to swing...to crush the baseball. But wouldn't you rather crush it more often? Even better...EVERY time? Our guest on todays show is Matthew Marvin, owner of MGM Consulting and author of "Nailed it" 10 Keys to Crushing the Interview. He'll talk about strategies and technics that will help you CRUSH your next interview and land you the job you most desire!
