Running the Bases with Small Businesses

I have a passion to work with small businesses and I love baseball – I thought, “Let’s blend them together”.

So, Every episode I sit down with local entrepreneurs, business builders and small business owners to talk about their wins and whiffs, their “tools of the trade” and to give actionable tips – you could call them “business signs” to other business-builders.

We’ll cover business stats such as Entrepreneurship, Operations, Sales, Digital Marketing, Innovation – Plus a little fun baseball talk.

Settle back, grab your Cracker Jacks and you know what they say…..

“Play Ball!”
