2017-06-25 Can Creativity Replace Money With Carl Nordgren & Ed Fulbright On Mastering Your Money Radio

Can Creativity Replace Money

The good news is 98% of us were born creative geniuses.  The problem is the creative juices have disappeared because of a lack of use.  Interesting fact, outside of the Western Developed Nations, roughly 70% of all employment is self generated.  Someone finds a problem in the village or neighborhood that can be solved and discovers a way to earn a living and to feed a family by solving it without an undergraduate course in entrepreneurship or any financial capital.

Joining us for our discussion on Can Creativity Replace Money?  is CARL NORDGREN who is in our Durham NC Area studio. CARL NORDGREN  has worked as a fishing guide on the English River in Northwestern Ontario and on the White River in the Arkansas Ozarks, as a bartender, a foundry man, college professor and a serial entrepreneur. He lived with his family in Ireland for a year where he researched the IRA, and for 14 years he taught courses in Creativity and Entrepreneurship at Duke University. He graduated from Knox College and lives in Durham, North Carolina with his wife Marie where they have raised three daughters. ` His new book is Becoming A Creative Genius (Again).

2017-06-11 The Right Business Model with Rich Allen & Ed Fulbright On Mastering Your Money Radio

The Right Business Model

80% percent of all businesses fail within five years, and smaller enterprises are even more vulnerable. Too many business owners work themselves and their teams into the ground, never knowing why they can’t turn a profit. The result is often a tremendous loss of revenue and employees. Inspiring your team is critical to any business’ success, and it can’t happen unless you have the direction and a vision to lead them with.  But what’s missing for many small business owners today is a fundamental underlying model that will allow them to focus on the things that matter most for long-term success

Joining us for our discussion on The Right Business Model is Rich Allen who is calling in from his  Dallas Area office. Rich Allen is a visionary business adviser who brings big-picture wisdom to small business owners and helps them find a unique place in the market. Combining his passion for small enterprise with experience as a senior executive, he hosts a weekly radio show, the “Ultimate Business Tune Up.” His new book is The Ultimate Business Tune Up: A Simple Yet Powerful Business Model That Will Transform the Lives of Small Business Owners.

2017-06-04 Finding The Money with Carol Broadbent & Ed Fulbright On Mastering Your Money Radio

Finding The Money

Thinking of launching a start-up? Ready to pull the trigger on that great product idea you and your buddies hatched over a few drinks? Here's the ugly truth: Most start-ups fail. The typical start-up lasts 20 months and burns through $1.3 million in financing before closing its doors. So what are the Do’s and Don’ts of start-ups? And what is the forecast for startup success under Trump?  For all the romance and mystique attached to legendary start-ups such as Apple, Google, and Facebook, the reality is that 90% of start-ups fold within their first two years. Those that succeed owe as much to savvy steps in company building and market focus on the part of their founders as to inspiration, vision, and luck.

Joining us for our discussion on Finding The Money is Carol Broadbent  who is calling in from her  San Francisco Bay Area office. Carol Broadbent is a corporate marketing leader with a blend of leadership and hands-on experience with global tech giants and scrappy tech startups. Carol is experienced in creating demand, building authority and thought leadership, and accelerating sales on a global basis.
