How Lovely Beards Made the Leap From Blog to Product Line

Let’s face it, beards are in vogue. Bushy beards, long beards, well-coiffed beards, wild beards – sprouting on men in all walks of life – music, sports, film, business, even politics.

It’s no coincidence that sales at Lovely Beards, a San Francisco-based online seller targeting facial hair aficionados are waxing in response.

Rip Bains, the cofounder of Lovely Beards, shares his company’s transformation from an Irish blog for hirsute men into a “Content & Commerce” retailer that is quickly emerging as one of America’s premiere male grooming companies.

Listen in this week on Monday Morning Radio and hear what Rip tells host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart about the journey from content maker to product maker.

Clear the ‘Swamp’ That is Cluttering Your Mind and Stymying Your Business

If you struggle each week to find enough time – even to read the Monday Morning Memo or listen to this podcast – then you might need some coaching from Ronald Tabachnick, aka The Swamp Doctor.

Ron, is an “overload” expert. He and his Toronto-based firm, RT Planning Strategies, have worked with companies including Amazon, FedEx, Terradata, and Audi to help their employees clear their “mental swamps” of clutter, and discover how to separate important details from unimportant distractions.

Ron, author of “A Breakthrough in Strategic Planning,” says his methods can help almost anyone achieve greater focus and peace of mind, even, he promises, our very own host, Dean Rotbart. This week on Monday Morning Radio: The Swamp Doctor v. the King of the Mental Swamp. It’s a duel you won’t want to miss.

For Small Business, It Is the Best of Times; It Is the Worst of Times

 

What are the greatest rewards, and the greatest frustrations, of owning your own small business?

You may be surprised to learn that money isn’t the answer to either question.

What matters far, far more to America’s entrepreneurs? And what do they absolutely abhor?

The SurePayroll Small Business Scorecard has taken the pulse of American small business owners every month since 2010.

This week on Monday Morning Radio with host Dean Rotbart, SurePayroll’s Andy Roe, head “scorekeeper,” shares some of the most surprising insights into the way entrepreneurs feel on a wide variety of business topics. 

Did you know, for example, that 46% of small business owners are unable to break away from work long enough to have lunch? What about you?

Listen in to hear other eye-opening results from the SurePayroll Small Business Scorecard and see how your small business experience compares to the mainstream.

He Wrote the Small Business Bible and About One Million Other Entrepreneurial Tips

Steve Strauss wrote The Small Business Bible. Literally. The best-selling book, now in its third edition, is widely considered the ultimate small business resource.

Strauss also writes the weekly “Ask an Expert” column for USAToday.com, and has been doing so for 20 years. 

As listeners will discover, there is no small business question too hard (What’s the most important small business tip from among all you offer?) or too odd (How did you come to abhor the ketchup business?) for Strauss to field.

Hear for yourself this week as Strauss joins host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart on Monday Morning Radio.

The New Guerrilla Marketing Strategy: Heal the World and Shore Up Your Profits

Do you care deeply about making the world a better place, whether the goal is ending poverty, preventing war, or saving the climate and environment?

Increasingly those who answer ‘yes’ are choosing to launch civic-minded, for-profit businesses as their community activism vehicle of choice.
