My first guest appearance on a radio talk show!

On October 31, 2017, at 11:00am, I made a guest appearance on the Biz Talk Radio Network’s Frankie Boyer Show that emanates out of Boston and is Nationally Syndicated to 20 Stations Business Talk Radio and rebroadcast on Lifestyle Radio Network. I was on for the first 15 minutes of the show. The subject discussed was the impact on the employees when a business has been sold, and discusses what they should do. To hear that show: Click on the link below (or type in to your web browser http://www.biztalkradio.com/NS-ListingDetail/NSEventID/12) and scroll down to the “Tuesday, 10/31/2017 Hour 1” show toward the bottom left hand side of the page. (Since my segment was aired 1st, you only have to listen to the first 15 minutes to hear my segment of the show.)

A short synopsis of what you will learn by reading my book

In chapters 1 through 4, you will learn how to navigate through the waters of an ownership change at the place where you work.

In chapter 5, you will get a real sense of how powerful relationships and community service are in building your career and being able to seize opportunities when situations arise.
  • Start to develop relationships and doing community service
    early in your career.
  • By getting involved in community service you are able to role-play
    and develop many ancillary skills, and relationships.
  • Don’t overlook any connection that you have in any situation.
  • Discipline in this area is the real key in developing your own luck.
In chapters 6 through 9, you will ride atop a wave from a real life owner’s perspective completely from beginning to end. You will find this area most interesting and entertaining, as in real life unexpected twists and turns are always coming your way.
  • You will see how quickly you can actually raise a lot of money.
  • You will see how you can grow a business.
  • You will see how you can creatively finance acquisitions.

In chapters 10 through 13, you will learn from a step by step detailed approach how to accomplish catching, and riding a wave of ownership yourself.
  • You will learn how to write a business plan.
  • How to structure your business.
  • How to approach a bank to obtain financing.
  • What steps do you follow, and what documents do you need in order
    to complete an ownership transaction.
  • You will learn how to build real financial value in a business once you own it.
In the appendices, you will learn that although riding a wave as an owner yourself is very engaging you can still lead a full life.
  • You will learn a lesson in “How to look the part”.
  • You will see what information you need to make a good purchase offer.
  • You will learn how to conduct due diligence prior to Closing on the

The book is about a three hour read. I believe you will find it easy to read, entertaining, and full of good, practical, very useful information.
