Using Social Media To Grow Your Business With Amazing Results!
July 9, 2013
Hosted by Bob Pritchard
We analyze the tremendous results that are being obtained by small businesses using social media and give some advice on how to maximize those results. We also continue our discussion on how the institutions of business, education, banking and government are mired in the past and cannot possibly cope with the changes we will experience in the next 20 years; the new figures on the chances of entrepreneurs getting funding is really depressing. We also discuss things not to say and things you can do to help your chances. The creators of the new Androidly watch are convinced it will replace the smartphone. We also discuss how to make your deck memorable and further discussion on what makes an entrepreneur successful. We have our regular Bob‘s Thought for the Day segment and we answer listeners email questions. We have a great, educational and fun interview with Al Gini Professor of Business Ethics and Chair of the Department of Management in the Quinlan School of Business at Loyola University in Chicago. Gini has also been the resident philosopher on NPR for 26 years and is a best-selling author. It is a challenging interview with Gini revealing some information about past presidents that may surprise you. We also have a popular Make a Pitch segment featuring Firefly Capital Management who in the last 12 months have returned 52% to investors.
