Dr. Blanche Hayden and Linda Ballesteros share inspiring conversations with successful entrepreneurs, business owners, speakers, authors, coaches, consultants and influential celebrities to help you learn success strategies, common threads of greatness and lifestyle opportunities. Our goal is to get to know the person “behind the business card,” exploring their journey to success, including the good and the bad. We purposefully explore a diversity of ways of earning a living through different career and business choices, in hopes of opening your eyes to possibilities you hadn’t thought of. We’ll spotlight encore entrepreneurs to inspire you if you are considering career or lifestyle changes at a time in life when you can create a Third Act of your choosing – for your passion, higher purpose and financial gain. Start-up entrepreneurs and those who are “stuck” in growth will learn from the struggles of those who made it – and how they survived and flourished. We explore interesting issues, such as diversity, holistic health, and lifestyle options, and many more! We also discuss marketing and publicity strategies and tips for becoming the expert authority in your industry with Visible Authority Marketing – how to become the “go to” expert in your niche.
