Larry Benet says our level of success is determined by our connections! He has achieved great success by harnessing the power of connectivity. Look at any of his pages to see him with Presidents (like Clinton, not a university president!) and leaders from around the world. His SANG group (Speakers and Author’s Networking Group) is a tightly-knit collection of over 1,000 famous, professional speakers, like Tony Robbins, Les Brown, Peter Guber, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Tony Hsieh of Zappos, and Paula Abdul. His Thought Leaders Summits bring together top minds in business and humanitarian causes to focus on challenges facing the world today, resulting in millions of dollars of charitable fundraising and the creation of several new business partnerships that netted tens of millions of deal-flow, created hundreds of jobs, and grew long-lasting personal relationships. Larry Benet Consulting helps select businesses to learn the most powerful ways to connect effectively.
Sean Mabey is the Director of Small Business Strategy with Wells Fargo, and he “wakes up in the morning” to help small businesses grow. He has been a good friend to the show and this is his fourth appearance, we think. Today, we are talking about the latest Gallop Poll of Small Business Owners and some interesting data about anticipated retirement in the US. What percent of small business owners plan to retire and what percent plan to continue to work? Listen in to see! Also, we talk about the availability of cash for small businesses and how to get it. Some great advice on building a long term banking relationship.
