Entrepreneur Master Class 12-17-2014 - Igniting Brilliance - Lisa Marie Jenkins
It can be easy to talk about purpose, passion, callings and strategy once you find it. Yet it seems to me that so many are still seeking it for themselves.

Is it possible? What does it mean to follow your heart versus your head and how can you blend the two for even bigger success? Lisa Marie Jenkins is an executive coach, author and founder of Lisa Marie Jenkins LLC – a consulting company specializing in feminine leadership. Previously, Lisa Marie spent over 20 years at Fortune 500 hi-tech companies in senior sales and marketing roles.

Entrepreneur Master Class 11-12-2014 - Shared Workspaces and Franchising - Felena Hanson
Starting a business can be a lonely place. Especially if you don't have the full support of your family and friends.

"What do you mean you want me to relax? I'm an entrepreneur. I have a lot to do. Time waits for no woman." Have you ever heard yourself saying those words? I don't mean word for word but some thoughts like them? I know I have and still do and they are burning me out. Consistently taking a break where you turn off the brain and just allow it to wander, where you allow yourself to explore the unknown possibilities is good for the soul, the body and everyone around you. Science has proven that vacations, meditation, taking a walk or other forms of letting go of being "on" are critical to success. How do you do that though? I used to be good at it but lately I have realized I am losing my edge for my own work ideas and play. I'm still crazy good for my clients which leads me to wonder, "how is it possible to help others while feeling burned out?" Enter a friend of mine, Karl Palachuk. Author of Relax, Focus, Succeed and a fellow entrepreneur. I read his book many years ago when I was thinking about selling my first company and I had lost a bit of focus. We know each other from the tech world and he is a respected business consultant and work-life balance expert. We are going to discuss how taking time to relax can actually improve focus. How you can move past overwhelm and three things to do each day to reduce stress and increase productivity. Karl W. Palachuk, is the Senior Systems Engineer at Small Biz Thoughts. He is the author of fifteen books and has owned a number of small businesses in Sacramento, CA. His books are primarily geared toward technical consultants, but his favorite is Relax Focus Succeed – a guide to balancing your personal and professional lives.

The web is an ever-present part of our lives in 2014. I go to it daily to research, explore, read and vet people I am thinking about interviewing for the show, potential clients and even vendor partners. Sometimes I have to put aside what I see on their web pages because I know what is reflected with their web presence is out-of-date or just plain doesn't reflect who they authentically are. Both good and bad. I regularly get asked. "how do you design your web presence? How much should I pay? How do I talk to my web company?" and even, "How do I translate my brand into a web presence?" Since I am not perfect at any of those things myself and I am in the midst of re-branding since the divorce, I thought I would bring in someone who lives and breathes this stuff everyday. Today's guest is Perry Yeldham of 21Thirteen Designs, a company that specializes in custom design and development of web sites across a wide range of platforms, coupled with the ability to consult and advise their clients on every related aspect of presenting you and your business on the internet.

He then landed a job as designer and head of marketing and advertising for a popular radio station in the Sacremento, California area.

As the company continued to grow, Perry taught music privately and delivered numerous classes and seminars on subjects including stage performance, music recording and copyright conventions. While teaching, Perry evolved his own method for learning his instrument and wrote a book on bass-playing. It was at this point that he realized he needed a website to promote his book and built his first site, bringing his tale

Entrepreneur Master Class 09-03-2014 - Entrepreneur Wellness - Marissa O'Neil
Self Care is something I thought I was pretty good at. Then I awoke one day and realized I hadn't felt good in a long time. Body aches, pains, fatigue, loss of focus and more. I was physically struggling. That physical struggle began entering into my emotional and work production. I wanted to chalk it all up to passing the 50 year mark yet I knew that wasn't true. Then the quest began to figure out my health yet again. Along the way I have met amazing healers of all kinds. Today's guest I actually met when she was getting ready to launch a book she wrote with her dad called Coastal Inspirations. As we got to know each other I knew I had to have her on the show to share her wisdom learned in the trenches of entrepreneurship and have her share with us some tips on preventing and healing pain. This was recorded live on September 3, 2014 at 5pm Eastern on the All Business Radio Network as I interviewed Marissa O'Neil and we discussed topics including injuries most entrepreneurs are prone to and how to avoid them.
