A podcast to help aspiring entrepreneurs increase their chances of success.

    Ron Coury - Tenacity

    Ron Coury - Tenacity

    Ron Coury is a name that is well-known to longtime residents and members of the business community in Southern Nevada. A U.S. Marine, Coury has seen and done a lot in his 45 years in Las Vegas. Coury is an observational entrepreneur, a “niche finder,” in his words. With nearly every venture he has undertaken, alongside various business partners including Dan Hughes, Don Tamburro and Tom Boeckle, he identified operational nuances that led to enhanced levels of success with all their ventures. This mindset was fascinating to execute in a young, growing town like Las Vegas since his arrival in 1973.


    Coury has worked as a casino dealer, real estate agent, founder of a limousine service and a partner in bars, restaurants, major graphics and glass companies, along with several automobile dealerships in Nevada and California.


    As a niche finder Coury says, “When you can demonstrate a need in any area of industry, your job is to find a cure, believe you can implement it, raise the money to do so, form the team and make it happen: a new business is born.”

    Wendy Caverly - Crusaders Networking

    Wendy Caverly - Crusaders Networking

    Wendy Caverly is a networking coach and connections facilitator. As the old saying goes, “it’s not what you know, but who you know”. But how do you get to know those people? By networking! Networking is the open exchange of knowledge while connecting with others.  Separate from selling and marketing, networking is most effective when the future value of the connection being made is unknown. The key is to discover in what form that value will take.





    With 20+ years of both entrepreneurial and networking experience and over 7 years of dedicated referral network facilitation, Wendy brings her focus on networking as a skill and knowledge, to professionals looking to learn how to effectively connect with others to create a solid foundation for success. 


    As a master connector, advocate for the business community and frequent public speaking engagements on the importance of sincere connections, the how-to connect, she excels at coaching individuals on what makes networking a valuable skill, separate from selling and marketing. Wendy does this by breaking down the complex, sometimes confusing and often overwhelming prospect of networking into easy to define ‘landscapes’, giving professionals confidence and control in any situation.  


    Her style of coaching new information is personable, friendly and often humorous. Wendy encourages her coaching clients to view networking as an adventure and to enjoy the journey. Transforming a neglected but needed activity into a confident skill set that will soon feel like an art form. 


    In addition to listening to this episode, you can also watch a video of their discussion on our YouTube Channel.  And be sure to subscribe and support the podcast!

    J Kelly Hoey - Build Your Dream Network

    Kelly Hoey is the author of Build Your Dream Network: Forging Powerful Relationships In A Hyper-Connected World (January 2017 / Tarcher Perigee).





    Kelly has been lauded from Forbes (“1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship”) to Fast Company (“1 of the 25 Smartest Women On Twitter”) to Business Insider (“1 of the 100 Most Influential Tech Women On Twitter”) and Inc. (“1 of the 10 Most Well-Connected People in New York City's Startup Scene”). EBW 2020 included her on their list of the “100 Most Influential Global Leaders Empowering Women Worldwide”.


    Kelly’s career story is all about networks. Her career started out with a law degree and a job in a big Canadian law firm.

Working alongside a visionary leader of a global business network for women, co-founding a startup accelerator, angel investing, accepting an interim CMO role with an emerging tech company, adjunct professor, writing a book, advisor to NZ entrepreneurs, launching a podcast - these are all part of her ongoing networked career journey.


    Kelly has appeared on CNBC’s Power Pitch, co-created and moderated a speaker series at Apple, and contributed to media publications such as The New York Times, Forbes, Fast Company, and Inc.  Kelly is currently at work on her second book, focused on the networks women need to build for career success.
