The Savvy Entrepreneur is a radio talk show dedicated to helping entrepreneurs make their journey to success faster and easier by sharing tools, tips, and resources, and through entrepreneurs sharing their stories. My goal is to inspire current entrepreneurs as well as those thinking about taking the plunge. I host a wide variety of guests on the show, talking about all aspects of business and entrepreneurship. Give me a shout if you have a topic you'd like to hear about, a resource or story to share, or a challenge you're dealing with, or if you know someone who'd be a great guest: firstname.lastname@example.org.
