Our video episodes are mini entreprenurturing™ sessions. We are passionate about sharing how to apply entrepreneurial principles to your life and work. Doing so helps you take control, make better decisions, and reach your goals faster, whether or not you own a business.

George, “The Professor,” is an experienced business owner who also teaches Entrepreneurial Finance at the University of Illinois. Mary-Lynn is a veteran radio broadcaster and award-winning audio producer turned social media entrepreneur.

While we are more comfortable being behind the microphones with our podcast, we realized it was time to get out of our comfort zone, and step in front of the camera to offer our message in video format as well.
