Business Jazz – 8th August 2013 – Hitting the Pause Button



TOPICS: The podcast is put on hold.


All good things come to an end. Or at least have the Pause button pushed.

So it is with this podcast as well.

Producing a podcast takes time and energy. We knew that going in. However, our schedules have conspired against us and we find ourselves needing to focus our attentions elsewhere. For the moment, any road.

Will the podcast return? We can't say it won't, but we don't want to give false hope either.

For now, we'd just like to say "Thank you" to you for taking the time to listen to the podcast. We truly appreciate that you did. It means more to us than you can ever imagine. You star.

Jane, Mark, Paul and Roger

Business Jazz – 2nd August 2013 – Blending the Offline with the Online



TOPICS: How be genuinely attractive by not being online


Do you need to be online?

Really?

After all, we managed to survive without the internet for centuries. People were contented. Businesses succeeded.

In this episode, Jane and Roger talk about how we still need to be active offline to make our online work.

Business Jazz – 6th July 2013 – The 45 Conversation Episode



TOPICS THIS WEEK: 45 Conversations, Mamukko bags


A year ago, Jane and Roger didn't know each other. The first time they had any real contact was during Jane's first run over 45 Conversations recordings.

Twelve months later Jane is connecting with the original 45 people she spoke to. So we decided to incorporate her round 2 conversation with Roger into an episode of Business Jazz.

From left to right: Attila, Levi and Roger holding the Mamukko "Digital Storyteller" bag. The bag will soon have its own webpage from where its story will be told.

Business Jazz – 24th June 2013 – Liz Strauss: We Won't Let You Fail



TOPICS THIS WEEK: Surrounding yourself with people who won't let you fail


Liz Strauss is a remarkable lady. She has touched the lives of many and helped them to improve their businesses and their quality of life. She's maybe best known on this podcast as one of the people behind SOBCon, a series of deep-dive online business conferences.

Liz has been ill. Those four words barely capture the hardship she's endured over the last year. In addition to ravaging her body, her illness has left her unable to work in the face of mounting medical bills.

What happened next is quite remarkable. Listen to find out.
