Lisa Tanzer, Sarah Fay and Drew Hannah were on the TV Show yesterday as we filmed Episode #3 from the Language of Business. Click on their links for their respective backgrounds and below are new photos from the set. They were all terrific and the episode should air in the next month, or so. The Show is now broadcast on over 10 stations with hopefully more to come. It's been extremely helpful, to date, achieving our primary objective to generate project leads for our Boston College Consulting and Business Plan courses.

What do you have to say? In each episode of the Language of Business, we'll identify a discussion theme so we can hear from you. Our first topic comes from recent guest Jeff Hulton.
He has some thoughts on how to sell Fine Art Prints and whatever product you have in mind, but he says not always easy:
What we all sometimes forget in all those sleepless nights developing our idea, all those overdue credit card bills funding "the next Facebook" and our third espresso is - Not everyone thinks like us, lives like us, acts like us and most importantly shares the same pains or desires we do. Our friends may think our idea is the Bomb but so far the world has been getting along without us and it's going to be OUR job to change that. (Your father told you to get a real job!)
Lend your voice to the discussion!
An essay from Jeff on this topic is here. Post your reactions to the broadcast or his essay here to the Blog, or on the Language of Business Facebook page. One of Jeff's works is below from http://www.sportingphotoart.com/
Are you starting a new business? Where do you begin? The Language of Business TV show is now on-the-air, on TV, and YouTube.
Each 30-minute broadcast will involve three separate entrepreneur interviews. The first two guests have opposite positions on the same issue. Our third guest, an entrepreneur in the midst of implementing an actual business, offers their perspective.
Episode #1 explores the need for a 50-page written Business Plan, in today's fast-paced, text-message laden, and short attention span business environment. The first guest (Tony Solomons of Ideal Marketing Group) doesn't believe such a document is always necessary anymore, while Jeff Hulton (our second guest) of Sporting Photo Art feels differently. Our third guest, Cindy Brown, will provide her thoughts, as she builds Boston's first Ice Bar, Frost.
The full, 30-minute broadcast is available here.
Many thanks to everyone who has so graciously volunteered their time for this project, inside and outside of Boston College.
Please like us on our Facebook site and please like the YouTube videos, too.
Please spread the word about the Show and our MBA program to entrepreneurs, companies and executives so we can attract better and stronger ideas to our Consulting and Business Plan courses.
