Do You Own Your Business . . . Or Does It Own You?

If you are like many business owners you started your company to have control over your time and your work product.  As it grew, you probably found yourself  more and more time on things that had little or nothing t do with what you set out to do.  Financial issues, human resource challenges and even sales are important to the success of your company, but they aren’t what you envisioned when you started.

Suddenly you feel as if your business is in charge, not you. Over the last few months a number of episodes have focused on taking back control of your business.

about the show

It started as a conversation with friends. When someone would drop by Roundpeg, Lorraine would pull out her iPhone and record a bit of banter. From those first, informal interactions with local marketing professionals, authors, and entrepreneurs, More than a Few Words, a marketing podcast was born.

Over the last decade, we’ve experimented with lots of formats including 30-minute live episodes, complete with a call-in number and a real-time Twitter feed. There were half-baked marketing ideas, conversations with marketing celebrities, lots of laughs, and good information along the way.

Today, the ten-minute conversations are heard by business owners around the world looking for practical tips and a little bit of marketing inspiration.
