In our interview segment, we’ll be joined by Terry Brock, a technology wizard who will help us see that it’s not about the technology, but about the relationship.
Entrepreneurship is the engine that drives all prosperity in any market-based economy. Children, as the saying goes, are indeed our future.

And later in our interview segment, we’ll hear from a very successful entrepreneur who was very young when she started, and still is!

And later in our interview segment, we’ll be joined by John Lee Dumas, who overcame post-traumatic stress disorder and a stalled career, and now credits his remarkable success to the power of goal setting. He’ll show us how to utilize goal setting for our own success as well.
