Management Consultant and Investment Expert Steve Young joins Steve Olds this week. He's also a Navy Officer and the CFO and General Counsel for Patriot Mission.

Many business owners have little clue about the economics or financial aspects of their business. But how can we as entrepreneurs "get smart" about how money really moves, really works in their business?

In their own consulting practice, Steve Young and his brother Fred help business owners "get things done" from a planning perspective. He says, entrepreneurs need to know where they are coming from and where you're going. They need to assess their strengths, weaknesses and determine if their idea "will sell" in the market.

Steve and his brother like to determine how "coach-able" a business owner is. Can they be truly objective about their own performance?  Can they look at their own business from an investor's point of view?

There are many tools available to help them measure. They must step back and determine the metrics or key goals - and what questions to be asking. They must learn to think like an investor.

Enjoy Steve Young's experience and insights on this episode.

Here's to your success!

In Episode 40, we examine the keys to overcoming the all-to-common pitfalls in the new year goal setting process. What results do most people's New Year's Resolutions yield? FAILURE. Why? Typically, New Year's goals are based on emotional ideas that feel good, especially when they are established while drinking a pricey class of champagne.

Here's the challenge. Like any other strategic objective in any organization, you must have a well thought out plan to accomplish your goals. In his international best-seller, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Dr. Stephen R. Covey maps out several very important elements necessary for accomplishing your goals. We'll review these ideas.

It's important to understand the relationship between the roles in your life and specific goals. Dr. Covey explains the importance of weekly planning and how to think through your schedule with a specific emphasis on goals. If you want to effectively accomplish powerful goals in 2016, you'll enjoy this podcast!

Welcome to 2016! As is usually the case, ringing in the new year means pursuing exciting personal, family & future goals and resolutions. If you have kids or grand-kids, do you ever wonder how they see the future? Do young people, who are the future of our nation, understand the precipice upon which America now stands?

In our first episode of 2016, you'll meet Sarah Cruz. Sarah's a college graduate with a bachelor's degree in organizational management. She has managed retail stores with as many as 60 employees and is now pursuing another degree in healthcare. Sarah is rare among her peers because she understands and supports the 'MAKING AMERICA STRONG AGAIN' movement.

During this thought provoking discussion, you'll learn why. We'll learn not only what Sarah thinks, but we'll discover how her peers view the economy,  terrorism, politics, apprenticeship, entrepreneurship, leadership and America's future. This will give you a very interesting perspective and is a great way to kickoff 2016!
