In June of 2008 I was invited to be a guest on Entrepreneur Hour with Nance Rosen – a show geared toward business owners and managers. I was scheduled to be one of two guests – each having half the show. It went so well though, that Nance kept me on for close to the whole show… three of the four segments. (poor guy who followed!)

Listening Note:

In each segment below, there’s a commercial break – when that happens, the rest of the audio for that segment is the show’s commercials, so at that point you can skip to the next MP3.
