Entrepreneurs — In Action

Robert and I are always looking to identify events that help entrepreneurs succeed. Given that there is such an array of online and offline activities, it’s difficult for any entrepreneur to know which events and forums are truly worth their time.

That’s why we’re so pleased to have been invited to be official media guests for the 7th Annual Business Networking Night. The event has become one of the most worthwhile and fun evenings for up-and-coming business leaders in the City. In BusinessCast #121 — Robert and I captured the energy and enthusiasm from the event — organized by Toronto’s leading business networking facilitator, Jennifer Beale.

While at the event, we spoke to dozens of entrepreneurs and asked them two key questions:

  1. What is their biggest business challenge today; and
  2. How are they overcoming that challenge.

Listen to BusinessCast #121 and tap into the secrets behind how entrepreneurs are successfully tackling today’s most difficult challenges.

BTW, we’ve just added a new title to our ever-growing library of books — available for any of our listeners at no charge. The new book: “Upstarts: How Gen Y Entrepreneurs Are Rocking the World of Business.”

Calgary Flames President & CEO Tells All

Well a few weeks ago, we sat down with former Calgary Flames President & CEO, Ron Bremner. The result: BusinessCast Podcast #71 – Part One of Hockey Lessons for Business. His insights and personality certainly sparked a lot of strong emotions.

The truth is that some people appreciated where Ron was coming from, the challenges he faced and his approach to tackling them. At the same time, others didn’t quite see eye-to-eye with Ron’s approach.

Well, Ron had some further business lessons and now they can be heard on BusinessCast Podcast #73 – Part Two of Hockey Lessons for Business.

You’re an entrepreneur so, listen to the shows – and you be the judge. Does Ron have it right? What’s your take?

Do you want press coverage? Do you need it? Do you know how to get it?….Slow down for a minute!!

Let’s put some things in place first so that when you are contacted by members of the media, you will get the most out of the coverage.

The goals of these appetizers: Save you time, money and effort by providing you with enough practical know-how that your hunger for growth doesn’t cause you to rush into swallowing some advice or products that leave you with a sense of indigestion.

So, in show #67 – Building Your Public Profile we help you address when, why, and how to pull together a cost-effective media  kit – which is an essential piece of any effective profile-building initiative.

Bon Apetite!
