On April 23, 2014, Mary Foley, and others, were happy to share about a brand new radio show. It is called "RichmondBIZLIVE!" The show, out of Richmond, Va., has a mission that includes Richmond business experts helping Richmond businesses.
Mary, can you tell us more about this new show and what it's about?
"Though our economy is growing, it's slow and many businesses are still struggling, putting thousands of jobs and the families they provide for at risk. This radio show is an example of how a local business community is coming together in a fresh, new way to help each other grow the local economy.
RichmondBIZLIVE!" is on WLEE990 News Talk 990 AM each Saturday at 10 a.m., and I love the theme. It’s all about Richmond business experts helping Richmond businesses! Though Richmond based, this show has ideas that any entrepreneur can benefit from. It can also be heard, and seen, via webcam from anywhere!"
Does the show have a mission, and if so what is it?
"Our mission for the show is to offer a service not available in the greater Richmond area, helping established businesses. Over the last decade Richmond has seen many initiatives that have increased the options for start-ups needing help. Services like free consulting, business formation incubators, your first office space, meetings with Angel Investors, etc., are available to any owner willing to pursue the help. To learn more about the show go to Our Story."
Has anyone noticed a difference from such initiatives?
"Yes, these initiatives are making a real difference in Richmond. Now 'RichmondBIZLIVE' is part of the mix!"
Is there anything else that you would like to share about the show?
"Yes, one can visit "The Shows" to see more of what the show is all about and see how audiences are inspired from what the shows' experts have to say. William "Bill" Eastman is the host, and he is also the managing partner at GrowthWorx. Eastman has 35 years experience in the industry as a business researcher and serial entrepreneur.
The other BIZ experts on the show include Linda Health, Eric Macalma, Andy Shulick, Mike Carroll, Huy Tran and Mark Deutsch. It is Host Bill Eastman, however, who has taken his years of business consulting and best practice research for the 'big guys' (corporations), who can afford an expensive consultant, and used it for the small and medium sized businesses who are the foundation of our economy."
Thanks goes out to all those at "RichmondBIZLIVE!"
