December 4th – Helping You to a Better, Stronger Business

You want to strengthen your company.  You have “how to questions” but are reluctant to talk to anyone because you don’t want to “expose” your vulnerability.  Maybe you’ve decided to take the plunge and start your own business and you want some rock solid, been there, done that advice. This conversation is for you.

Angela Durden created Writer for Hire in 1992 and describes her work as managing the life cycle of words – working with others to bring strength and clarity to and through books, graphics, videos, audios and even songs. Angela is dedicated to helping companies, authors, music artists, and musicians find success and be profitable, and looks for opportunities to do that in a variety of ways. She knows the challenges of creating and growing a business.

Spencer Sterling is president of the North Atlanta branch of The Alternative Board – an international organization that is an exclusive, membership-based
organization that helps business owners achieve more profitability, productivity and personal fulfillment. Spencer is grounded in more than just theory.  His career includes over 35 years as an engineer and manager with Ford Motor Company, serving as interim manager to return an international company to profitability and to identify its next leader, and consulting with small and medium size businesses.

And we are going to attempt something new – if you are listening to the live broadcast and have a question for either Angela or Spencer, email your question to and we’ll ask it.

November 13th – Storefront Entrepreneurs Fulfilling Their Dreams

Storefront businesses and entrepreneurs are not words that often go together. This week on Write Here, Write Now, they do as host Dr. Tim Morrison talks with two long time friends each of whom started their own businesses and  occupy store fronts in Highland Plaza in East Cobb, GA.

Julia Travis owns and operates Chocolate Jewels Candy Company. Chocolate Jewels Candy Company is a brick and mortar retail candy store reminiscent of the old fashioned candy counters of the past! The store has 28 feet of candy cases filled with over 100 reasons for visiting, browsing and buying! The English Toffee which is the signature candy of CJCC comes from a family recipe that Julia learned from her mom. Julia makes the candies in her candy kitchen in the back of the store.

Doug Meadows is a third generation jeweler who with his brother David established David Douglas Diamonds and Jewelry. David Douglas Diamonds and Jewelry provides a friendly atmosphere for customers to shop with confidence because they are buying from a reputable, family jeweler with a tradition of fine craftsmanship and service. The grandsons continue the tradition started over 70 years ago by their grandfather.

Why did each guest choose to be an entrepreneur in a store front plaza?  What are the challenges and joys of their work? What encouragement will they offer to others who might hold a similar dream.  This and more will emerge as Dr. Tim interviews his friends and this week’s guests.
