March 19th – What a Difference a Year Makes . . . and That Difference Is You!

With a nod to Barry Manilow and a twist to the title to one of his songs . . . We look at the difference an entrepreneur can make to one’s business by shifting focus, changing emphasis, realigning priorities, any combination of these. Andrea Rosenthal and Tricia Molloy have appeared on previous WHWN broadcasts. We have invited them to return to talk with us about what changes they have made over the many months since their previous appearances. What impact have those changes had? What have they learned about themselves and the marketing and growth of their businesses?  What advice do they offer for others so that others can bring new energy and vitality to their businesses?

Tricia Molloy is a leadership speaker on change management and professional development through wise business practices. She wrote Working with Wisdom: 10 Universal Principles for Enlightened Entrepreneurs and the CRAVE Your Goals! and DESIGN Your Ideal Life!eBooks.

Andrea Rosenthal is a career management and business coach at Career Soul~utions, Inc. where she supports individuals in identifying their unique skills, passions, interests, and values. Those qualities are then matched with careers that contribute to meaningful work.

March 12th – Business Leader, Entrepreneur and Professional All in One (actually Three)

Meet Rebecca Prien an intellectual property strategist and attorney and the Founder/CEO of Prien Creative Law Group LLC. Ms. Prien likes to use her strategic and creative mind to bring an integrated, right- and left-brain approach to client’s business and legal challenges. Currently Rebecca is making some major changes in her work as she launches a new brand and business model.

Meet Roger Haggerty of the Interlochen Group. Mr. Haggerty has vast experience in operations, finance and accounting combined with hands on work in numerous turnaround and improvement initiatives. Roger enjoys working directly with CEOs of privately-held companies to help them achieve their goals. Roger has recently published Hire Me: A practical guide to standing out in the crowded job market.

Meet Matt Roberts of Chisel Printing & Media.  Chisel Printing began “way back” when cassettes were the “in thing” in recording.  Chisel Printing & Media did so well, customers asked the company to expand into other media.  Chisel did. Matt has led the way.

Rebecca, Roger and Matt have been, are and continue to be business leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals all at the same time.  How do they do it?  Why do they do it? And, as always, we will ask what part writing plays in their respective careers.

March 5th – Meet the Write Choice Services Staff

Write Choice Services has sponsored Write Here, Write Now since its first broadcast in April, 2011.  Dr. Tim Morrison, the host of Write Here, Write Now, is also the president of Write Choice Services. This show provides listeners with an opportunity to hear from and learn about the independent contractors affiliated with Write Choice Services. Vanessa Lowry, permanent guest host of Write Here, Write Now,  interviews  Betsy Rhame-Minor, Jamie Bailey and Emily Lees. Discover how each of these individuals found their way to being an independent contractor with Write Choice Services; what their particular area of interest is in writing; the type of client project they enjoy working on. Oh, and listeners will most likely learn what these three women hold in common professionally that Dr. Tim doesn’t even come close to being able to claim.  And, if given the chance, Dr. Tim will probably counter with what he sees as his “school of hard knocks” equivalent.

February 5th – In Pursuit of the “Better Mousetrap”

We know the saying, “Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door.” Entrepreneurs Diane Bogino and Tim Sanders have each “built that better mousetrap” in their respective fields.  Diane’s business – Performance Strategies, Inc. – provides assessments, seminars, coaching, consulting and training to help companies become even better at what they do best.  Tim Sanders is part of the team that is Net Minds, a group publishing company. Consulting companies constantly proclaim, “We can help you make a real difference in how you do business and get business.”  Similarly, we can find a multitude of publishing companies each of which declares they can do the best job helping authors. 

As part of Performance Strategies Diane Bogino also hosts GBDN tv (Georgia Business Directory Network).  She creates and produces video interviews of business leaders.  She then edits the video and uploads them to a youtube url.  She shares the links with her clients who can then leverage the video url.

Net Minds could be described as a brokerage for writers:  authors come looking for a coach and/or ghostwriter and layout design person and marketing person; editors/writers come looking for a potential client as do design specialist.  Net Minds uses proprietary processes to assemble the best team.

What makes Performance Strategies and Net Minds different?  What is their “better mousetrap?”  How did each create its concept?
