Mermaid Mania: Swimtails Aims to Ride the Global Wave

Little mermaids are big business. Spurred, in part, by the hit Australian TV show, “H2O: Just Add Water”  - which airs in more than 120 countries - we are in the midst of a bona fide mermaid feeding frenzy. Among the more popular items making waves are mermaid tails, such as the children and adult swimming fins being marketed nationally by Swimtails, a company that recently surfaced to meet the burgeoning demand.

 

Husband-and-wife team Kristie Foster and Ryan Newman share their entrepreneurial tale this week on Monday Morning Radio and disclose their blueprint for making a business splash from mermaid mania.

 

Kristie and Ryan are interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart, an award-winning journalist and veteran broadcaster.

 

Dean will be teaching his amazing 2-Day Mile High Reputation Tool Chest Workshop in Denver on September 3rd and 4th. The workshop will provide registrants with all the knowledge and training they need to rocket launch their local, national, and even global reputations.

Dr. Bo Knows: Podcasts Deliver an Audience and Results

Is podcasting an effective marketing tool? 

Bo Bennett sure thinks so. The serial entrepreneur just launched his 7th podcast – The Dr. Bo Show. “Dr. Bo” – who has a Ph.D. in social psychology – finds that podcasts deliver a steady stream of customers for his various ventures, including online courses, public speaking, and ebooks. 

Why? Dr. Bo says many people have brains that are hardwired to be more receptive to audio input than reading or videos. (Where have we heard that before?) Join in this week on Monday Morning Radio and be counted among the audio cognoscenti.

GetOutfitted.com's Julian Flores on Executing Complex Business Operations

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.”

When Lawrence of Arabia wrote those words, he could easily have been speaking of Julian Flores of GetOutfitted.com. Julian’s dream was that skiers from anywhere in the world would be able to rent all their ski gear with just a few clicks on a website – clothing, goggles, skis, boots and even action cameras – and have it delivered to their mountain lodge to await their arrival. 

To make this dream happen by the light of day is a logistical ballet worthy of NASA or Amazon.com. If your dream requires that you execute complex operations with incredible precision, you’ll definitely want to be wide awake when you listen to Julian Flores tell Dean Rotbart how his dream came alive – and went skiing – at MondayMorningRadio.com

ONTRAPORT Is One of the Best Small Businesses in America - Here's Why

Two times every workday, for 90 minutes, employees at Santa Barbara-based ONTRAPORT go radio silent. That means no phone calls. No incoming or outgoing email. No staff meetings. And no socializing.  

How do ONTRAPORT's employees react to being unplugged so frequently?  They absolutely LOVE it. In fact, the company's "Time Block" is one of several unique aspects of ONTRAPORT's culture that has fueled its incredible growth - allowing all employees to focus on the Big Picture and long-term projects.

This week on Monday Morning Radio, Landon Ray, ONTRAPORT's founder and CEO, demonstrates how even small companies can go giant when it comes to creating profitable corporate cultures.

Landon is interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart, an award-winning veteran broadcast journalist.  Dean is co-host of Business Unconventional. The one-hour radio newsmagazine debuted in October 2011 on News/Talk 710 KNUS AM in Denver.
