Guest : Jim Blasingame, Host of The Small Business Advocate radio program
Aired : Sunday December 23rd, 2007
Jim Blasingame is a voice very familiar voice to small businesses. He's been speaking to them for over ten years on The Small Business Advocate radio program, where he does over a thousand interviews a year with experts in his small business brain trust. We thought we'd turn the tables on him and fire off as many questions in his direction as we possibly can in short amount of time. Jim gives us his take on the state of small business today, the current climate for small businesses and how effectlively he feels small businesses are using web 2.0 tools and services to compete in the marketplace. Jim also shares with us why he thinks small business is like a bunch of bananas, and how you can attain small business success three minutes at a time.
Michael also unveils his new blog Much to do About CRM and fills us in on what he'll be doing with it. Brent's rant of the week centers on why he trusts his "good" name with Wordtracker, and not Google. And check out Brent's prediction that 2008 will be the year of the International Solopreneur. Finally Brent touches on his roundtable conversation on tech trends for 2008 with small business gurus, and friends of the show (FOTS), Anita Campbell and Ramon Ray. This is one conversation you'll want to listen to!
