It’s been that kind of week – lot’s of people to thank.  That’s a good week in my book.

Yesterday (12/9/08) I was a guest expert on Anita Campbell’s Small Business Trends Radio program.  The entire process, from working on the topic and questions with Anita, the scheduling and logistics with Staci, and the actual program with my facilitator Steve Rucinski, was nothing but professional.  It’s no wonder Anita’s blog is subscribed to by over 220,000 people!

My topic was advice for Manufacturing start-ups.  In a half hour, we covered quite a wide range of questions, from what’s changed in the manufacturing space, the three most critical aspects to consider in starting a manufacturing company, to one tip on how manufacturing entrepreneurs are avoiding most start-up costs all together.

If you’d like to read an overview of the show, or listen to a recording of the interview, here are some links:

You can also order transcripts off the Small Business Trends Radio website.  It’s acting a bit slow right now, so I can’t get to the transcripts page to see if there is a charge or not.

UPDATE – The transcripts are $10 to cover transcriptions, printing and shipping costs.  I didn’t see mine in the list yet, but I would guess it takes a while to get the show transcribed.

I’ll put a plug in for Anita here also.  If you haven’t stumbled upon her radio site, then you may want to take a look around.  Every week, she has a different small business expert on the show talking on a variety of issues.  Looking over some of the most recent and popular shows, I see titles like: Building a Successful Community Giving Program, Using Facebook to Market Your Business, and How to Start a Business with No Money.

So once again – Thank You Anita!  I look forward to working together again in the future.
