The Inside Scoop on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and What Other Charities and Businesses Can Learn From It

This week on Monday Morning Radio, The Wizard Academy's Buzz Snatching maestro, Dean Rotbart, takes listeners behind the scenes of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge - a global viral marketing campaign that raised more than $110 million for charity in about one month.

Dean's guest is Tanner Hockensmith, Executive Director of the ALS Association Texas Chapter and a national spokesperson for the organization.  Tanner dissects the success of the Ice Bucket Challenge and offers advice on how charities and business owners can generate their own buzz snatching campaigns.

Turning AFFORMATIONS Into Small Business Success Fuel - With Noah St. John

For way too many small business owners and entrepreneurs, a major obstacle they regularly encounter is listening to the wrong adviser: themselves.

What you say to yourself, ask yourself, and think DOES make a huge difference in how well you perform in business and life.  That is the premise behind AFFORMATIONS: The Miracle of Positive Self-Talk, a new book that author Noah St. John promises will help busy people "accelerate income, boost self-confidence, and make success automatic." 

This week on Monday Morning Radio, Noah shares with listeners his own Afformations. It's kind of like a Vulcan mind meld, only you don't need to be a Vulcan and have pointy ears to get inside Noah's head.

Noah is interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart.  Dean and wealth management expert David Biondo are co-hosts of Business Unconventional. The one-hour radio newsmagazine debuted in October 2011 on News/Talk 710 KNUS AM in Denver.
