Shatter Buggy Will Speed To Wherever You Are  To Fix Your Shattered iPhone or iPad Glass

When it breaks, fix it immediately.

That is the business strategy behind Benjamin Head’s Shatter Buggy, an iPhone and iPad mobile repair business that uses a fleet of snappy smart cars to draw the public’s attention and make rapid repair calls to your home, your business, coffee shops and even gyms.

Head, a former commercial airline pilot, launched Shatter Buggy in January 2012, realizing that each day, thousands of us -- mere mortals that we are - drop our iDevices or otherwise obliterate our screens and inflict bodily damage on these high-tech marvels.

Apple Inc. expects to sell 200 million iPhones this year, plus another 100 million iPads. Shatter Buggy is counting on the “klutz” in all of us to grow his business nationally.

Benjamin Head, founder of Shatter Buggy, showcases his company on this week’s Monday Morning Radio.

These Franchise Owners Have Got 'The Vibe': It's How They Surpassed Every Other Which Wich Restaurant in the System

Why do some franchise stores succeed while so many others stumble or just get by? For a few powerful insights, look at Which Wich Superior Sandwiches, a nationwide chain of popular restaurants focused on the “wich,” a customizable sandwich available in more than 50 varieties.

On this week's Monday Morning Radio, Jay Goldstein, partner and chief operating officer for 9 Which Wich outlets, including one location that last year out-sold every other restaurant in the chain, offers his exclusive perspective on the secret business ingredients for success. It’s a recipe that other franchise owners can readily follow, regardless of what sort of business they operate.

Also interviewed is James Pa, vice president of operations for the national Which Wich chain.  Pa sums up the reason for Goldstein’s success this way: “If you believe that you’re going to succeed, you’re going to materialize it. It’s going to crystallize. We call that ‘the vibe.’ They’ve got the vibe.”

How The Journey Institute Fosters Ordinary People Who Do Extraordinary Things for Their Businesses and Communities

The ancient Greek, Diogenes of Sinope, went in search of an honest man.  Dafna Michaelson of Cincinnati went in search of problem solvers and idea generators.  She had better luck.

In fact, Dafna, founder and president of The Journey Institute, traveled to all 50 states and Washington DC to hunt down people doing extraordinary things on behalf of their businesses and communities.  

Dafna detests whiners.  Her philosophy is straightforward:  If you want to complain about some aspect of your business or community, then you have to be willing to do something about it. And if you can't do it yourself, find those who can and cheerlead for them.

This week on Monday Morning Radio, Dean Rotbart and his guest co-host, son Maxwell, interview Dafna and hear how she's mobilizing people to solve their own problems.

Dean and Maxwell share the hosting responsibilities each Sunday on Radio Chavura, a 30-minute broadcast radio program that focuses on the Jewish Community of greater-Denver.  The program airs at 6:30 pm on 990 KRKS AM in Denver.

Dean, a member of the Wizard Academy faculty, is also the weekly co-host of Business Unconventional, a one-hour weekly broadcast that airs on 710 KNUS AM in Denver. David Biondo, a wealth management expert and authorized Bank on Yourself advisor, is the regular host of B. Unconventional.

When he’s not on the radio, Maxwell teaches 12th grade psychology and 9th grade geography at Grandview High School in Aurora, Colorado.
