Monday Morning Radio

For the third consecutive year, host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart turns the microphone over to his son, Maxwell, who reviews the top business lessons of the past year, gleaned from ten of the weekly guests appearing on Monday Morning Radio.

Among the priceless business insights and actionable tips for success included this week are the gift of struggle; the simple truths of great customer service; the proper care and feeding of bosses; how to build an ironclad brand; and the Bezos method of business growth and risk-taking.

Give Maxwell Rotbart less than an hour to start off the New Year, and he’ll give you a year’s worth of business magic.

Jeffrey Gitomer is the all-time, best-selling author of sales books; better even than Dale Carnegie, Zig Ziglar, and Napoleon Hill.

Gitomer’s “Little Red Book of Selling” is a classic, not only for dedicated salespeople, but for anyone seeking to sell a product, service, idea, or even to market themselves.

Dean Rotbart, host of Monday Morning Radio, previously hosted a live weekly radio show - Newsroom Confidential - on KRLA 870 AM radio in Los Angeles. Back in 2006, when Gitomer had just published his second book – “Little Black Book of Connections,” Dean interviewed him about his methods and how they apply to everyone – not just professional salespeople.

This week, as an audio stocking stuffer, Dean plumbs the Newsroom Confidential archives to replay his actionable interview with Jeffrey Gitomer.

On the rollercoaster of life, Ken D. Foster has seen the peaks and the valleys, working his way up from gas station attendant to head of a $200 million securities business, and back to the very bottom.

Ken finally found stability, and success, when he cleaned his slate of beliefs and behaviors and began anew. Now a best-selling author of five books, a podcaster, and an empowerment coach, Ken has released his newest book, The Courage to Change Everything, which provides daily strategies to overcome life’s greatest challenges.

As Ken explains to host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart, his approach to success is a hybrid of ancient and modern wisdom, Eastern and Western philosophies.

In the spirit of the 7th Annual GivingTuesday, this week’s podcast examines the growing number of small business owners who are creating 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundations to buttress their philanthropic efforts.

In the spotlight is Ryan McFarland, a sterling example of CEOs who are giving back in gratitude for their own success.

Ryan is the founder of Strider Sports International and its nonprofit sibling, the Strider Education Foundation, or SEF.

Ryan worked closely with Monday Morning Radio host Dean Rotbart, who is a National Ambassador for the All Kids Bike® movement, to set an audacious goal: teach every child in America how to bike before they reach the first grade.

Through SEF, the All Kids Bike® movement has already donated free bikes, helmets, and training programs to 136 schools in 26 states. And the campaign is just getting pedaling.

Ryan is Dean’s guest on this week’s Monday Morning Radio, sharing the ups-and-downs of simultaneously running a for-profit and not-for-profit organization.
