Business Initiative Podcast

Today I went to lunch with insurance guru, entrepreneur and radio host Scott Stafford. Scott hosts a radio show called Business Initiative on 1460 AM KRZT here in Colorado Springs where he and his guests discuss important business aspects.

I had the opportunity and privilege to be a guest on his March 4th show. One thing I learned quickly is that I love being on the radio. Perhaps it’s because some say my voice resembles Casey Kasem, although I didn’t hear it in this broadcast. Actually, I think it’s because of the rush of being live and facing the unknown. What if I’m asked a question I don’t know the answer to? How will I respond? Will I sound like an idiot? I love that possibility.

So, if you’re the entrepreneurial sort, there is a lot of great information in these 45 minutes. If you’re a Casey Kasem fan, you can listen for the resemblance. Or, maybe you just have 45 minutes to kill and want to listen. At any rate, click the link and enjoy.

Listen Here - it's a large file, but it streams pretty well (thanks Brian for the hosting)

I’ll answer the questions for you before you have to ask.

  • Yes, I realize afterward that occasionally I say mildly cheesy things, like “soooper”
  • Yes, I did use the word “sexy” to describe business. My wife made me aware of that almost immediately.
  • Yes, I did get asked a question I had no idea what the answer was. Bet you can’t tell what it was. To my credit, I can fake it with the best of them. It’s not what you know, it’s how well you hide what you don’t.
