“We are excited to offer a broader marketing strategy to our program partners and affiliates,” said Scott Miller, Executive VP of Center Post Holdings. “We feel we offer a unique format for small business owners, entrepreneurs and people looking to manage their family’s assets.”

BizTalkRadio currently has over 300 radio affiliates and growing. BizTV tripled its distribution in the last year, currently available in 21 markets serving close to 30 million broadcast homes.

Beer Geeks

Ed Bremer – Ed is a business guru and Beer Geek rolled into one.  He has translated his business and finance degree intBeer Geekso several successful businesses, finally landing in the beer and liquor industry in 2006.  Ed reinvented his liquor store business by building the one of the largest selections of craft and import brews in Minnesota with over 1,000 selections.

Matt Sandell - Matt was selling beer in 2006, when he met the then new owner of Heritage Liquors, Ed Bremer, and became fast friends over their shared passion for craft beer. Before long they realized that folks who enjoyed craft beer wanted more — they wanted to see behind the scenes, learn how each specialty beer was made to better enjoy what was quickly becoming an American passion.

So in 2011 Matt and Ed, the original Beer Geeks, teamed up to create a television show about craft beer, broadcast on  a local Minneapolis station, Channel 45.  After almost 6 episodes, they approached David Page of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives fame and who was located in Minneapolis at the time, to ask if Page could take the show to the next level.

And the rest, as they say, is history.  Page reinvented the show and upped the production value and retained a national syndicator to take the show out to a national audience.  In September 2013, the country will be treated to the first nationally syndicated television series about all things Craft Beer, which is sure to be as huge a hit as DDD.

Beer Geeks is on BizTV on Friday from 10pm to 11 pm EST, 9pm to 10pm CST.

Founded in July of 2008, Baldwin and McCullough, desired to pour into the world content that would change the life of people that they came into contact with. One significant step in doing so was the launching of the “Baldwin McCullough Radio” show. Launching on four stations its first week, and hoping to be on fifty in roughly eighteen months, they were ecstatic to see their weekly broadcast cleared on more than 100 stations in only seven months. By the time they had been on the air a full 12 months they were closing in on 200. To date they are being carried by 213 affiliates across North America, reaching roughly 2.5 million weekly listeners.

The Dani Johnson Show

The Dani Johnson ShowDani Johnson has instructed hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world on how to make millions of dollars. The mountain of continuous testimonies from clients that pour in on her website, Facebook page, and through the mail, speak for themselves: her simple and practical methods work.

Dani travels around the world every month to deliver her “First Steps To Success” and “Creating A Dynasty” seminars to thousands of people, all wanting to learn how Dani Johnson went from being homeless to having millions of dollars. Typical tours include multiple 10-day tours in London for audiences of more than 10,000, and journeys Australia, Belize and India speaking to more than 30,000 people. Dani’s seminars are always completely sold out! Most compelling is how this happens; it is all due to word of mouth. Dani’s loyal clients blog about their extraordinary results from her seminars, reach out in social media daily, and talk and share in public forums so extensively that a standing-room-only crowd is the standard.

Everyone has a unique life story to share – but initially, Dani Johnson’s looked to be made up of hardships and challenge. Dani grew up on welfare in a violently abusive and drug-infested home. She was emotionally, physically, verbally and sexually abused on a regular basis. The personal trauma and violent conditions that Dani identified as home were all she knew. Consequently, she was pregnant at 17 and homeless at 21. Instead of accepting what life had so far scripted for her, Dani rewrote her own playbook, chapter by chapter – and by 23 she was a millionaire. In the years since, Dani Johnson has become a multi-millionaire many times over, owns five companies with her business partner and husband Hans, is a best-selling author, internationally sought-after speaker and radio show host.

The Dani Johnson Show is on BizTV on Saturday from 7pm to 9pm EST, 6pm to 8pm CST.

LeapZone Strategies for LeapTV

LeapZone Strategies is a website dedicated to providing small businesses with the resources they need to get up and going.

The LeapZone team has spent 10 years successfully helping businesses create and manage their brand identity through the vehicle of an award-winning business called Scenario Design. After many years, they discovered that their underlying need to dig deeper, beyond the external business communications, was growing. They felt that brand identity, although very important to business success, was only scratching the surface, and soon realized that a business focused on and known for that alone was no longer fulfilling their purpose. By 2005, they decided that the right thing to do was to merge Scenario Design with an existing, successful, and very talented creative firm.

Margarita Romano

Margarita is a visionary strategist, processor, business owner, systems engineer, creative writer, fanatical problem-solver, and one of the best selling authors of the business and marketing book titled, The Next Big Thing: Top Trends From Today’s Leading Experts to Help You Dominate the New Economy.

From 1996 to 2006 she co-owned and operated an award-winning creative firm called Scenario Design, that helped companies raise their business standards and re-define their industries through innovative brand development and forward thinking communication tools.

After selling Scenario Design in 2006, she took a well-deserved year off to explore the world, and came back stronger than ever to become co-founder of LeapZone Strategies. Margarita’s extensive hands-on experience with brand development and management, and systems creation and implementation, along with finely-tuned listening skills and a rejuvenated passion for life, make her determined to help entrepreneurs, business leaders and their teams succeed.

Gettin’ Down 2 Business With Troy Hazard

Have you seen Gettin’ Down 2 Business with Troy Hazard?

Gettin’ Down 2 Business – With Troy Hazard, is a weekly magazine style TV show, giving American business people the inspiration to ‘have a go’, get back to work, and get on with building a life for themselves.

Australian serial entrepreneur Troy Hazard is a national network television host, best selling business author, and motivational speaker. Troy has owned ten different & successful companies over twenty years. Don’t miss Gettin’ Down 2 Business Mondays at 7:00pm EST.

There are theory specialists and then there are those who have been there. Troy Hazard, recent Global President of the elite Entrepreneurs’ Organisation, has survived moments of sheer desperation in business. Drawing from a lifetime of innovative, real-life leadership experience, Hazard now shares with businesses his powerful Lessons from the Edge.

How do you make the right decision when you’re faced with a situation you’ve never experienced before? What do your customers really want from your company and how do you ensure your relationships with your consumers are as strong as possible? How do you recognise trouble and change your strategy accordingly?

There are few situations in the business world that Troy Hazard has not experienced and survived – from massive financial loss to stunning success. The entrepreneurial genius, who has founded and nurtured ten businesses over two decades, has been a few days from bankruptcy, has turned around businesses that were making enormous losses and has consulted to countless successful companies.

Hazard’s business talents earned him international respect, so much so that he was elected by the worlds foremost business leaders for the role of Global President of the Entrepreneurs’ Organisation, a role he says was one of his greatest challenges.

“That was by far the toughest leadership position I have held,” he admits, speaking of an organisation that represents a global community of successful business owners. “I was leading leaders who lead leaders who lead people – a large collection of the world’s most brilliant business minds, and they all at some stage thought they could do the job better than I could. It was extremely challenging and rewarding, and thrilling at the same time.”

Hazard’s experiences in the business world have allowed him valuable insight into the workings of organisations and the minds of customers. Most business owners, for instance, believe they have a great relationship with their customers when in fact only twenty per cent really do. Why? Because business owners believe that, when a customer comes in to purchase a product or service, this constitutes a relationship. They assume their customers care about them!

It’s this same experience that gives Hazard such great value as a Certified Professional Speaker. “Some of my businesses have failed and that has taught me many important lessons that you don’t learn at business school,” Hazard says. He drills down success into four key areas: understanding your own personal values, being a visionary leader, solid market positioning, and customer relationships. “The key thing about what I have to share is that I’ve done it  – I’m speaking from experience, the good and the bad.”

Troy’s Lessons from the Edge provide businesses with potent and refined tools, all of which have been road tested in real-world situations and none of which you will ever learn about in business school.
