Monday Morning Radio
World Long Drive Champ Ryan Winther and Max Muscle's Mark Sarale Talk Sports Marketing

Sports marketing is huge.  But getting it right is no layup.  

On this week's edition of Monday Morning Radio, we go behind the story of one successful sports marketing partnership, between 2012 RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion Ryan Winther and his earliest and most ardent sponsor, Mark Sarale, a regional director at Max Muscle Sports Nutrition in Northern California.

Early on, Sarale and Max Muscle generously supplied their sports nutrition expertise and powerful proven supplements to Winther, who with their backing rose rapidly to the top of his sport.  "That moment changed my life," Winther says of the first time he walked into one of Sarale's Max Muscle Sports Nutrition Store located in Sacremento.

Three months later, Winther, who once aspired to a career as a professional baseball player, broke the golf ball speed record with a swing that sent the ball rocketing 402 years at 237 miles per hour.

Winther talks about how the lessons of golf success can be applied to the business world.  And, importantly, what other business owners should know before they hook up with an athlete in pursuit of a marketing championship.

Michael Milken Says the 21st Century Favors East Asia and Latin America – So Get Prepared

Renowned financier, philanthropist, and medical innovator Michael R. Milken is the featured guest on this week’s special edition of Monday Morning Radio.  

Milken spoke earlier this month in Colorado before a distinguished audience of business and political leaders, outlining for them his thoughts on the rapid and significant changes that legal immigration have brought to America and how the “changing face” of our nation will have enormous impact on business and government policy in the very near future.

Milken notes that worldwide population growth and education patterns make it clear that China, India, and Latin America will be among the key global economic powers for the rest of this century.  If America is to remain competitive, it must invest far more in educating our young people and re-opening our boarders to legal immigrants.

Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart attended Milken’s speech and had the opportunity to meet privately with the billionaire for 40 minutes following his remarks. 

What Milken has to say – about the forces that are changing the world as we know it – is priceless business intelligence.  

As Rotbart notes at the opening of this week’s audio, portions of Milken’s remarks are difficult to hear.  Rotbart recommends using earphones to capture the clearest possible audio.

Those Monday Morning Radio listeners interested in hearing more of Milken’s insights and influences can also visit www.Chavura.com - a weekly broadcast radio program aimed at the Jewish community – where Rotbart and his son, Maxwell, in an exclusive interview, discuss with Milken how his Jewish roots have influenced his business and philanthropic thinking.

Rotbart and David Biondo, a veteran financial planner and successful entrepreneur, produce Monday Morning Radio in cooperation with their weekly radio newsmagazine, Business Unconventional, which airs each Sunday morning at 8:05 a.m. (Mountain) on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.

'Creative' Accounting Transforms Boring Bookkeeping into Profitable Business Intelligence

Wizard Academy helps business owners and entrepreneurs discover the science in every art.  In its unconventional classes, which draw creative men and women from around the world, the goal is to demonstrate step-by-step how to do consciously what gifted people do instinctively.

In the generally unglamorous world of bookkeeping and accounting, Jeff and Jake Wilson are two such gifted visionaries.  The Wilsons, a father-son duo, look at the same tedious numbers that other bookkeepers and accountants crunch, only the Wilsons spot opportunities for profits and positive change that typically go undetected.

The Wilsons, cofounders of LoomView.com, are this week’s guests on Monday Morning Radio, produced in cooperation with 710 KNUS AM’s Business Unconventional, the weekly radio newsmagazine airing each Sunday at 8:00 a.m. in Denver and is streamed simultaneously around the world at www.710KNUS.com.

While Jeff, a Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, is a nationally recognized business coach, son Jake comes to the task as someone trained in an entirely unrelated field – architectural design. 

Building a successful business is similar to building a great structure, Jake explains.  “If you don’t know where the beams are, if you don’t know what the foundation is made of, and if it’s not constructed properly, it will not be able to hold up and perform.”

The Wilsons are interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member and graduate Dean Rotbart.  Rotbart, along with David Biondo, serve as cohosts of Business Unconventional.  Jeff Wilson is a regular contributor to the broadcast radio program.

1 Hour (Or Pretty Darn Close) Inside the Mind of Rieva Lesonsky - Small Business Legend

This week on Monday Morning Radio, an exclusive, extended interview with Rieva Lesonsky, a pioneering journalist who spent almost 25 years as the editorial director at Entrepreneur magazine.  When Rieva began, in the early 1980s, few news organizations paid any attention to small business owners.  And most business reporters didn't even know the meaning of the word "entrepreneur."

Rieva has helped many thousands of people start and grow their own businesses.  Now, as the head of her own company, GrowBiz Media, Rieva continues to write about small businesses and is a much-in-demand public speaker and consultant.

This week's audio was recorded simultaneously with the taping of Business Unconventional, the weekly one-hour radio newsmagazine that is broadcast each week on 710 KNUS AM and around the world at www.710KNUS.com.
