Learn From These Real Life Stories as You’re Starting Your Business

June 28, 2010 — 9 Comments

blank pageA few months ago I started what I thought would be a mini-series here on Coach Radio.  I started highlighting a few people who were doing some of the same things our listeners aspired to.  By interviewing them it was my hope that you’d be inspired to carry out some of your own ideas.

Well, it’s exploded into much more than that as you can see here

I’m reminded that the next page in my story is blank and so is yours.  You have the opportunity right now to write that page.  What’s going to be on it?

The people in these interviews aren’t waiting, they’re writing that story right in front of you. Listen in to hear how they’re doing it.

    Put my hat in the ring for Howard Sheppard, Jon Tollefson, and Jennifer DiDonato. Why? Because it looks like the Detroit area is producing some really cool people, that’s why!! Oh yeah, did I mention I’m from Detroit too :-)
