    Peter Nevland on What Your Marketing Campaigns Can Learn From Weiner Dog Races

    Peter Nevland on What Your Marketing Campaigns Can Learn From Weiner Dog Races

    What can an annual race featuring weiner dogs teach serious entrepreneurs and business owners about correctly predicting the outcome of any marketing campaign before spending a dime on testing the concept? Plenty.

    That’s the bottom line of Peter Nevland’s latest book, Wiener Dog Marketing: A Silly Sounding Book for Serious Business Growth. The fast read not only features lessons Peter has gleaned from teaching and attending classes at the Wizard Academy, it also maps the mind of the Wizard himself, Roy H. Williams.
    Peter is one of the elite Wizard of Ads partners who helps already successful businesses find their unique path to much greater success, much faster.
    Peter was last a guest on Monday Morning Radio a decade ago, when he discussed his evolution from an engineer to a wordsmith and word coach.
    This week Peter shares with host and award-winning author Dean Rotbart the secrets of sniffing out a successful marketing strategy, one short-legged, long-bodied canine at a time.

    The Future of Business Journalism: A Special Edition of Monday Morning Radio

    The Future of Business Journalism: A Special Edition of Monday Morning Radio

    CLOCKWISE: Dean Rotbart, Matt Quayle, Peter Coy, Henry Dubroff, Matt Murray, and Chris Roush  
    A special audio/video edition of Monday Morning Radio presenting a panel of distinguished journalists discussing the future of business journalism.
    TO VIEW THE VIDEO, CLICK HERE.
    This is the first episode in the 11th year of the business-to-business podcast.
    Everyone who owns a business, operates a professional practice, or works for either, understands the importance of the business news media - and their ability to provide actionable insights and intelligence.
    The discussion arises from the publication of The Future of Business Journalism and Why It Matters for Wall Street and Main Street by Chris Roush. Roush is the Dean of the Quinnipiac University School of Communications, where he is also a professor. He is a veteran business journalist and the founder of Talking Biz News — a must-read website for journalists and communications executives about the business journalism profession.
    Roush joins Dean Rotbart, award-winning author and host of Monday Morning Radio, to examine the history of the business journalism profession, its current status, and what Roush believes are the changes that are necessary to buttress business and financial news going forward.
    In his book, Roush writes: “[The] shift in business news content away from many consumers and small business owners on Main Street and toward Wall Street investors, money managers, and Fortune 500 executives is one of the most misunderstood inequalities in twenty-first century American civic life.”
    To examine that contention, along with other key elements in The Future of Business Journalism, are a distinguished panel of four veteran business journalists:
    Peter Coy, Opinion Economics Writer, The New York Times
    Henry Dubroff, Owner and Founder, Pacific Coast Business Times
    Matt Murray, Editor in Chief, The Wall Street Journal
    Matt Quayle, Senior Executive Producer, CNBC-TV

    Biographies of Roush and the panel members are available here.

    Capitalists 2.0: The New Breed of Business Leaders and Owners

    Capitalists 2.0: The New Breed of Business Leaders and Owners

    As the top journalist and now CEO of Fortune Media — publisher of Fortune magazine, Fortune.com, and an increasing array of live Fortune global conferences — Alan Murray is one of the most influential business journalists in the country.

    In his capacity as the head of Fortune, Alan has the opportunity to keep company with many of the world's most prominent and influential people, including presidents, heads of state, legendary CEOs, titans of Wall Street, and even the Pope.
    Alan is the author of a bold, newly released book, Tomorrow’s Capitalist: My Search for the Soul of Business.
    In the book, Alan encapsulates the wisdom of his coterie, mixed with a full serving of his own savvy, to create a vision for a new, 21st-century breed of business owners and leaders. Alan dubs them Capitalists 2.0.
    Some of Alan’s ideas are surprisingly radical — or, if not radical — certainly a break from the traditions of Corporate America and the deeply-rooted Milton Friedman philosophy that “There is one and only one social responsibility of business–to use its resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits.”
    This week, Alan sits for an exclusive interview with host and award-winning author Dean Rotbart to explain how tomorrow’s CEOs can do a better job than their predecessors for their employees, communities, and investors.
    [Note: Alan’s journalism career spans more than four decades, including serving as deputy managing editor, executive editor online, Washington bureau chief, and a columnist for The Wall Street Journal. He is the recipient of a Business News Visionary Award, nominated by his peers and recognized for his transformative contributions to the business journalism profession.
    The Business News Visionary Awards are made possible by the support of Monday Morning Radio and The Dilenschneider Group. Additional support is provided by TimeinaBottlePhotography.com.]

    Next Monday, June 20th, as Monday Morning Radio begins its 11th year of podcasting, host Dean Rotbart will moderate an extra special panel to discuss a provocative new book, the Future of Business Journalism. 
    Everyone who owns a business, operates a professional practice, or works for either, understands the importance of the business news media - and their ability to provide actionable insights and intelligence.
    Chris Roush - Dean of the Quinnipiac University School of Communications and a veteran business journalist, is the author of The Future of Business Journalism which contends that significant changes must take place in the ways business journalism organizations operate for the betterment of Main Street and Wall Street.
    Joining Chris and Dean will be four distinguished business journalists:
    Peter Coy, Opinion Economics Writer, The New York Times
    Henry Dubroff, Owner and Founder, Pacific Coast Business Times
    Matt Murray, Editor in Chief, The Wall Street Journal
    Matt Quayle, Senior Executive Producer, CNBC-TV

    Retired U.S. Army Colonel Christopher Kolenda on Business Battlefield Strategies

    Retired U.S. Army Colonel Christopher Kolenda on Business Battlefield Strategies

    As an active U.S. Army Colonel, Christopher Kolenda — a West Point graduate — led 800 paratroopers stationed in Afghanistan. Six of his soldiers were killed under his command.

    The loss of his troops and the lessons he learned about effective leadership during his storied military career are front and center in Col. Kolenda’s mind this Memorial Day.
    Col. Kolenda is the author of Leadership: The Warrior’s Art and Zero-Sum Victory: What We’re Getting Wrong About War. He is also the founder of Strategic Leaders Academy, which works with leaders who want to apply insights from history and military operations to transform their businesses.
    Whether on the battlefields of Afghanistan or in the trenches of American businesses, Col. Kolenda says that victory depends on a three-legged foundation: Leadership, Culture, and Strategy.
    If your business lacks any one of these, he tells host and award-winning author Dean Rotbart, you are forfeiting the competitive advantage.

    This High School Dropout Disrupted an Industry and Forged a $600 Million Business

    Brian Scudamore was a high school dropout. Waiting at a McDonald’s drive-through, he spotted a ratty old pickup with “Junk Hauling” spray-painted on the side. “I could do that,” Brian told himself.
    Driven by an insatiable curiosity and inspired to do things bigger and better, Brian bought a beat-up old truck and launched what today is the $600 million global industry giant, 1-800-Got-Junk, which dominates the junk removal business.
    Brian is the founder and CEO of Vancouver-based 02E Brands — 
    Ordinary 2 Exceptional — which offers innovative home services franchises, including 1-800-Got Junk, Wow 1 Day Painting, and Shack Shine.

    This week, Brian shares practical insights from his latest bestselling book, BYOB: Business Your Own Business, Be Your Own Boss. The book debuted at #2 on The Wall Street Journal’s bestsellers list.
    BYOB is a follow-up to Brian’s popular 2018 book, WTF! [Willing to Fail]: How Failure Can Be Your Key to Success. Both BYOB and WTF were written with Roy H. Williams, founder of Roy H. Williams Marketing and co-founder of Wizard Academy.
    Brian is a fervent believer in the power of thinking BIG. Listen in as he explains why everyone has it within their means to achieve their dreams.
    “If Brian can succeed, so can you,” says host and award-winning author Dean Rotbart. “And that’s not rubbish.”
