School For Startups
The book, School for Startups, argues that entrepreneurship is not about risk, creativity or passion. It reached #9 on all of Amazon and #1 in the business section, and has over 90 reviews averaging 4.7 out of 5 stars. The book was published by McGraw-Hill in 2011 and continues to sell very well.
Free Marketing Using Radio and Podcasts
I signed with the In 30 Minutes Guides series to write their 17th guide. Using my experience self-booking over 300 radio and TV interviews and my experience as a syndicated radio host, this book will help businesses get free publicity to grow their sales. The book is due to be released in early spring 2018.
School For Startups Radio
School for Startups Radio is devoted to bringing great information to small business owners and entrepreneurs. It was awarded the 2014 Small Business Administration Media Award and is carried on 16 AmFm Stations around the country (and is adding new ones all the time) and nine internet platforms. I have interviewed Shark Tank judges, winners, and losers, famous venture capitalists, billionaires, bestselling authors and life changing gurus. The show is always upbeat, never talks politics, and strives to make every guest look great. There is also an accompanying digital magazine emailed to hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs every day.
Restaurant Owner Radio
Restaurant Owner Radio ran for 3 years on multiple AmFm stations around the country. The show highlighted James Beard winners, famous chefs and restaurants, and the CEOs of national chains. I covered the latest trends in the industry, financial issues, and topical stories of interest. I interview the founders or CEO of the Melting Pot, Longhorns, Hooters, Ted’s Montana Grill, Bennigan’s, Chili’s, Tony Roma’s, Le Cirque, Big Boy, Genghis Grill, Honey Baked Ham, Johnny Rocket’s and many others. My personal favorite was the head chef at Disney’s Cinderella’s Castle!
