Notice my red paragraphs below! I have had some technical difficulties in the past with my callburner program not seeming to mesh with my skype but thought I had resolved that by being careful to make the updates that callburner alerts me to each time. But these two interviews below came AFTER that problem so I'm not sure what the deal is this time. Lesson here is to test before interviews. Hopefully I'll be able to grab time from Lori Nordstrom and Chumworth again soon. Thankfully I had some great interviews just waiting to spring! Thanks!
Febrary 3, The first step to having it "all' is knowing what it all really is for you. In this interview, successful entrepreneur, radio personality, and coach Mike Stuart shares helpful insights on how to find the balance and true success in business and in family life. Mike tells stories of his own journey and how he discovered what many entrepreneurs are missing on their path to building a business. This is good stuff to hear about in these trying times!
February 3, Her work is stunning. She can capture the fresh loveliness of infants and the inner glow of expectant mothers. No matter her subject, she focuses on making the photography session as wonderful for the participant as the picture perfect outcomes she creates. Lori Nordstromis an award winning photographer based in Winterset, Iowa, who has a nationally recognized reputation for excellence. In this interview she tells her story, how she managed and built a successful business, and where her focus is in the future. (note on February 2, later after I discovered the problem with chumworth interview. This one is messed up too! Will have to see if I can re-interview Lori. very trying)
He’s a comedy writer. Where is Chumworth? You’ll find his work used frequently by David Letterman, but he also contributes his humor to other late night shows and several notable publications including the New York Times. In this interview, Chumworth talks about freelance writing for comedy, cartooning, and how he works to keep us laughing even when "life sucks." (note dated February 2: I went to load this terrific interview with Chumworth on Blog Talk Radio and discovered that the pre-recorded audio file was corrupted. I had had a program glitch on my end between my recording program and skype which has since been resolved. Totally bummed but Phil Johnson aka Chumworth has said he'll probably be able to slip me in for a repeat performance. Thanks Phil!)

Ben Watson, VP of Marketing, talks about Overlay TV, how it started, how it works, and several of the successful stories that users have had with the technology of Overlay.
