As a small business owner, I love the fact that there are actually radio programs that discuss one of my favorite topics..small business.

Not only is Jim Blasingame celebrating his 12th year of broadcasting, but his producers reached out to me a few years ago, and asked me to be a guest on Jim's show. Jim even liked me enough to invite me to be a member of his "Brain Trust." (That's a little scary)

From Jim;

"This Monday will be my 3,121stlive broadcast since we began —
including all the holidays — even when I was on the road. I've conducted
almost 12,000 live interviews with small business experts and entrepreneurs,
and next week I'll broadcast my 13th consecutive live Thanksgiving Day show.
When you hear me talking about making sure that you're passionate about the
business you start, now you know that I practice what I preach.

From the beginning, my primary programming goal was to focus on the
fundamentals that are important to successfully starting, operating and growing
a small business, and to make all of the things we do available to you for
free. On that last note — the free one — I must say thanks to our
outstanding corporate partners, without whom the free part would not be

Along the way, we've received a number of awards and recognition for our work
on behalf of small business. All were accepted in honor of our heroes, small
business owners."

I'm The Franchise King®, Joel Libava. I help prospective franchise owners avoid bank account emptying mistakes.
For 23 years, I’ve been showing people how to make smart, informed decisions on franchises to buy, and I can help you, too!
P.S. I'm not a franchise consultant/broker.

Joel is Highly Principled
There are many people in the franchise business who claim to to be experts in the field. Unfortunately many of them lack both knowledge and integrity. Joel, however, is without question one of the most qualified and principled people I know, in or out of his industry."
