Talking About Entrepreneurship on The Lou Hutt Show – XM Satellite Radio

Thom Ruhe on June 18, 2009 Source: e360 Blog

"Your goals are influenced by your dreams;
Your dreams, a reflection of your experience;
Your experience is measured by your success,
And your success is the bottom line.

A few weeks ago, I was an in-studio guest on entrepreneur/CPA/lawyer/author Lou Hutt’s popular XM Radio show discussing various matters related to entrepreneurship, the Kauffman Foundation, the E=R Campaign and our current business/economic climate.   The interview is divided into two 15-minute segments below.   Give it a listen, and weigh in with your own opinions on the questions and comments discussed.
