BST helps listeners make more money in less time and have more fun doing it. The show hosts are a group of entrepreneurs and business consultants who have gone through the school of hard knocks in business and love sharing their insights and enthusiasm with listeners. Listen to the gang each week as they get together over some fine Northern California wines to talk, debate and sometimes argue about what it takes to believe in yourself, to create your own reality and become successful in any business endeavor -- and life in general.
Enjoy camaraderie while we discuss companies, industries and trends from a real-life perspective -- better than NY Times, Business Week or Wall Street Journal!
Show topics include: Common hurdles to starting and effectively managing your own business, creative a compelling business plan or marketing plan, how to take business ideas from inspiration to inception, applying for small business grants, generating money to start a new business, business finance, effective leadership and employee management techniques, staying motivated, getting referrals and generating new business, writing meaningful business plans, being successful in challenging economic times, Internet marketing strategy and many more work and job related issues. Are you are tired of working in a job that makes you feel unappreciated? Do you feel like your most productive years are being used to benefit someone else, while you are earning less than you are worth? Have you ever fantasized about starting up your own business, but were too afraid or unsure to take the first steps? Do you already own a small business that's flat-lining and needs a shot of hope, inspiration, and money?
Whether you're about to make the plunge or are only starting to consider it, you'll find BST an addictive and valuable addition to your list of business resources. This is definitely not what they teach you at Harvard!
