Each Tuesday at 10.00am I was the host of Money 2.0 on radio station 105.5FM. The focus of the show is to interview business experts in a range of topics including selling a business, selling a medical practice, buying a business, buying a franchise and the responsibilities and challenges that come with owning and operating a business, or, as I like to say, where Wall Street meets Main Street.
Each show includes one or two guests and discusses in detail their field and/or industry of expertise.
I hope you enjoy and learn as much as possible from the show you select as its chock full of information and tips that does not date with time.
