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.

You can check back here for the latest video episodes, or find them on our Youtube Channel, or Facebook Page.
