Homeless in New York, sleeping on the streets in freezing temperatures, has a choice between hundred dollars cash and lessons on how to code. Takes the lessons on how to code, a recycled computer and his new App for carpooling has just been released. A great story coming into Christmas. We also discuss how to reward employees without giving cash; YouTube revenue dwarfing that of many cable networks; and the social networks that really connect with their audience. We also discuss how to use marketing to get people through the doors of the small business; using incentives at a base salary to drive your business; and how to drive research with very little funds. Our interview this week is a true entrepreneur story about Jen Laska who set up the very successful Jen and Joe's individual serves cookie dough that is now carried in over 150 major stores across the country. She set the company up with her husband, have taken no investment and are still both working full-time jobs to support the growth of the business. More importantly, the cookies are sensational with great flavors like White Chocolate Wasabi. This is a story that tells what being an entrepreneur is all about.
