    Drs Michael Chambers and Andrew Byrd know the questions to ask, the people to talk to, and the processes to explore to get your business idea or invention started. They work with individuals and companies that are trying to break through and offer coaching, feedback, and introductions. If it's going to fail, they want it to fail fast so that you can quickly pivot and take the idea in a different direction where a market may be eagerly awaiting your idea. It's intense and rigorous and not for everyone but Drs Chambers and Byrd agree - entrepreneurs are often the most satisfied people they know and their drive can't be stopped.

  • Manners, Etiquette, and Protocol: Cindy Grosso Teaches the Fundamentals of Confidence
    Manners, Etiquette, and Protocol: Cindy Grosso Teaches the Fundamentals of Confidence
    Duration: 53min | 22/07/2019

    Cindy Grosso defines manners, etiquette, and protocol as the stuff that allows us to know what to do in uncertain situations so that we'll not be uncomfortable and can focus on what matters. Often, the subtle behaviors a job candidate exhibits or the confidence a sales person displays sets them apart from the pack and allows them to close the deal. What sets them apart is that these people know how to behave in uncertain situations and they don't allow the formalities of meals, introductions, receptions or the like to make them uneasy. The trick, says Cindy, is knowing the correct manners, etiquette, and protocol. They're business fundamentals.

    Mike Payne has survived where others have not. He can rattle off the printers along the Gulf Coast who have closed their doors due to poor bets on the economy and machinery trends that have not paid out. He even lost his largest customer the day AFTER a very expensive piece of machinery was shipped to his facility and he didn't cancel the order. Instead, he sold new customers on what the new printer could do. Mike often references the slow, deliberate pace of turtles to define his success. Take things slowly, let others make the mistakes and learn from them, don't take on debt, and make the customer look smart to their customers. It's a recipe that keeps working.

    Garrett’s business is not dependent upon him. He does not have a “job.” Instead he’s created a business out of personal training, instruction on healthy living, and coaching others to success. To train at Personal Edge Fitness, candidates must have a degree in some sort of training related field, you must go through an internship, and you must get very familiar with the employee handbook and training manual that focuses as much on lifts and technique as it does the emotional side of the clients as they struggle to achieve their goals. Garrett’s model is unique for the training industry and his success reflects that.

    George Porter Jr. has music pouring forth and is still honing his sound
    Duration: 54min | 08/04/2019

    When musicians speak one-on-one to George Porter, Jr., they often share that he's a role model of theirs, he's their inspiration for playing the bass or the drums, or even for choosing to play funky music in the first place. George is polite. He smiles and says "thank you very much." But inside he's wondering what they're talking about and wishing they'd sit back down at their instrument and get to work. There's music left to be discovered and to play. His success, he says, comes from giving 100% each time he's performing. And having performed with Flea, John "Papa" Gros, Allen Toussaint, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, David Byrne, and Tori Amos to name a few, he's, perhaps surprisingly, a nice and humble guy. I catch up with him after a long night in his home studio preparing some recordings for a New Orleans Jazz Fest release.

    Marquis Forge heard the call. Obeyed. And is now selling LOTS of water.
    Duration: 54min | 01/04/2019

    Heeding a call from God, Marquis Forge began a bottled water company in depressed Autaugaville, Alabama. Knowing nothing about the water business, and competing with Nestle, Coca-Cola, Dannon, and all the others, he was simply obeying God's command. And whenever questions would arise or expertise was needed, the answers would show up. Sometimes literally. Just over a year old now, the product has distribution throughout the state of Alabama via Budweiser's state-wide distribution network. It's an amazing story. And, personally, I'll never buy another brand of water again after hearing it. Incidentally, it's the best water the testers have ever tried. And, for what it's worth, Autauga is a native American word meaning "good water", which Marquis learned after starting the company.

    Blair Fisher's resume clearly shows that he's tracking the learning trends shaping today's students as well as tracking the workplace's needs of the future. Blair is communicating both these trends to the St Paul's faculty to help them amend their teaching methods to best serve the students. But teachers are notoriously change averse, so Blair, like anyone in his position, must emphasize the urgency to change to his faculty regularly. Blair is also keenly aware of social media's impact on the self esteem and confidence of today's students and has helpful insight into the plight of boys - why they're falling behind and struggling much more so than they ever have. This is a conversation that will strike home to any parent of high school aged children and younger. You'll want to tune in.

Only a loose commitment to the next generation that "this will all be yours someday."

    The recent case of a baker who refused service to a gay couple on religious grounds brought the issue to the forefront nationally.
