    Business Happens: Small Business Financing Tips

    Business Happens: Small Business Financing Tips

    Many small businesses fail because they don’t understand the critical
    financial details of their business, says Mitchell D. Weiss. His goal is to
    help entrepreneurs avoid the traps he’s seen entrepreneurs run into in
    his many years as a financial services executive. He explains how in his
    new book, Business Happens: A Practical Guide to Entrepreneurial Finance
    for Small Businesses and Professional Practices.

    In this interview he shares why he wrote the book, and then provides his
    advice on what small business owners can do if things don’t go according
    to plan and their venture runs into financial problems. But ultimately he
    wants business owners to learn to protect themselves before they experience
    financial difficulties.

    Big Coupon Savings With The CVS Drugstore Game

    Big Coupon Savings With The CVS Drugstore Game

    My guest Amanda Grossman got $2800 in free products at CVS over four years. That's about $700 in free stuff every year! In this interview she teaches you how to play the CVS Drugstore Game so you can save big bucks too.

    We discuss how to roll your ExtraCare Bucks (ECBs) and how to use multiple coupons/ExtraCare Bucks on a single purchase and more. As Amanda says, “This is not your grandmother’s couponing. It is focused couponing.” Once you learn how to play the game it can take just a few minutes a week. I saved $22 on a purchase before I even finished her book, and learned how I could save even more. Needless to say, I am a fan!

    Amanda Grossman is founder of the blog FrugalConfessions.com and author of the ebook, The CVS Drugstore Game. This episode aired live November 25, 2013.
