5 Minutes That Will Change Your Business Life - For Better or Worse

Five minutes.  300 seconds.  1/20th of an hour.  Perhaps the most important time span in the life of entrepreneurs who are seeking to raise crucial angel capital.

Five minutes is all that most angel capital forums allow owners who are lucky enough to be selected to present their business concepts to a gathering of interested, but highly skeptical potential investors. 

This week's guests on Monday Morning Radio, Dom DiDia and Frank Hofmeister, are veteran pitching coaches who volunteer their time and experience helping startup businesses prepare for their brief moments in the capital-raising spotlight. Even if you're not in the market for outside capital, what Dom and Frank have to say will make you a better overall communicator.  

Dom and Frank are interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart, who along with wealth management expert David Biondo co-hosts the weekly Business Unconventional radio news magazine broadcast on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.

Innovator Chris Tucker had absolutely no experience in the art or sports collectibles worlds.  But he had an idea - to bronze the hands of famous athletes, including John Elway, Todd Helton, Larry Walker, Troy Aikman, Dan Marino,Ted Williams, Ernie Banks, Bob Gibson and Goose Gossage.

Tucker, a "Simultaneous Entrepreneur," teamed with artist Raelee Frazier, who perfected the method of making such life casts.

His company, Allstar Casts, is unique - creating museum-quality bronze life cast hands and selling them to private patrons, galleries, sports arenas and even The Smithsonian.

In this week's fast-paced Monday Morning Radio interview, Tucker traces his entrepreneurial journey and the lessons it offers to anyone who may lack experience, but has plenty of vision and drive. 

Chris is interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart, who along with wealth management expert David Biondo co-hosts the weekly Business Unconventional radio news magazine broadcast on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.

Don Kuhl: Superhero of Change

Beneath every small business owner is an optimist who dares to dream big. Facing down challenges comes with the turf. Yet with eyes on the prize, we sometimes forget the importance of getting the little things right. Developing a habit of regularly examining our own choices can be key to success.

Don Kuhl has spent decades studying how small changes can have a major impact on our lives. He’s the founder of The Change Companies, a provider of resources that assist people in making choices that result in positive changes. 

The company’s focus is guiding people to help themselves. “I was vice president of business for a pretty large health company and time and time again it struck me, real change is self change,” he recalls during a recent radio interview conducted with Monday Morning Radio.

Don is interviewed on Monday Morning Radio by fellow Academy faculty member and graduate Dean Rotbart and by David Biondo, a veteran financial planner and successful entrepreneur. Rotbart and Biondo produce Monday Morning Radio and serve as co-hosts in cooperation with Business Unconventional on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.
