Highlights From Last Week . . . Shared This Weekend
(Kinda like that John Oliver thing)
1. Atlanta Business Radio
- Monday 8/22: We had Charles McGimsey and Rebecca Smith with Windham Brannon on the morning show describing the advantages of Virtual Accounting services — then for the afternoon show, Will Shelnut and Jeff Wright from Gateway Classic Cars. I can’t wait to visit their showroom. In fact, I didn’t wait — I’ve been surfing their website all weekend !
- Tuesday 8/23: Digital Marketing Series Co-HostsThomas Harpointer (AIS Media) and BRX CEO Lee Kantor interviewed Dr. Jeff Semel with Atlanta Medical Institute. This is going to be a great series — Tune in 10:00 am 2nd Tuesday each month.

2. High Velocity Radio
So glad to have Lee Kantor back in the studio this week ! On this episode we led with Todd Barton (Renters Warehouse Atlanta), then Alicia Carr and Erica Stanley with Women Who Code.
Check out the show here.
3. We finalized plans for the Business Writers Mixer / Business Writers Radio Launch Party (9/1 Concourse Athletic Club Grille). RSVP Here:
4. As of this writing we still have 2 Full YE Scolarships available for The Beach House — and I’ll be in Pensacola early next week on a scouting trip to nail down some key on-site logistics.
As I mentioned last week . . . One of the most rewarding aspects of the Beach House Experience is exposing young entrepreneurs to highly successful people doing work that matters. (They participate in their own unique Beach House Experience, and have ample opportunity to interact with our other participants.)
5. One of the biggest highlights of the week for me was Thursday’s KSU Shore Entrepreneurship Center Board of Advisors meeting. Congrats Chis Hanks and team for securing a Major in Entrepreneurship !!!
See ya in the Fast Lane . . .
The interviewing is usually done by one of our staff, the Business RadioX® Professional Certified Interviewers. Sometimes, our client wants to be the one to do the interview. We train them on how to do this, how to make it the most productive use of their time, and to help them get the most out of it. The interviewing can be done by the client, if they’re interested, but usually most of the time, it is done by one of our certified professional business interviewers.
I think some of the most interesting and productive interviews are when the relationship manager, business development professional, or whomever within our client base at least participates in the interview with their client or the person they’re wanting to deepen that relationship with. They will think of questions that are related to specific experiences that they’ve had together. That makes for a really rich interview as well, when they participate.
I don’t know. For a great many of them, there’s also equal value, I think, in having Certified Business RadioX® personnel ask questions because we have fresh eyes. It provides that platform for the interviewee to really explain in very simple, concrete terms the work they’re doing and help them get the word out about it.
