America's Biggest Small Business Event: Zach Lezberg with Small Business Expo
Small Business Expo is America's largest networking and educational event for business owners, start-ups, and entrepreneurs, and it's coming to Phoenix on Tuesday, September 21, 2021. Joining Dr. Adrian McIntyre to talk about it is Zach Lezberg, CEO & Producer of Small Business Expo. Founded in 2008, Small Business Expo helps small business owners and other entrepreneurs take their businesses and ideas to the next level, offering quality free content and providing a thriving venue for some of the most exciting business theories and innovations. (Learn more and register for this free event at the Phoenix Convention Center on Tuesday, September 21, 2021.) (Zach Lezberg), CEO & Producer of (Small Business Expo), started his first entertainment business (a DJ company) at the age of 11. After graduating from the University of Miami, Zach moved to New York City and recognized there was really no solid way for small businesses to access a business community, other than through the local chamber of commerce. In 2008, he experimented with creating a trade show targeting small business in New York, and soon thereafter expanded to Los Angeles, Dallas, and Miami. In 2021, what is now known as Small Business Expo will be offered in 45 cities across the United States. While it wasn’t his original mission, through the development and growth of Small Business Expo, Zach has become the voice of small business in America. In liaising with approximately 1.2 million small businesses and entrepreneurs who subscribe to his content and attend his shows annually, he has his finger on the pulse of their daily struggles, frustrations, and fears, and works tirelessly to ensure they have access to education, business resources, and networking opportunities to grow and expand to the next level. “Small business owners who come to Small Business Expo and are part of our community, run the gamut from what I call the ‘wantepreneur’ — those who have been thinking about starting a business and just need that extra push to get going — to people who are already deep into operations and need help with growth, getting organized, becoming fiscally responsible, networking, marketing, social media, and much more. Small Business Expo gives them access to absolutely everything they need in one place to maximize their time.” And while COVID has really been hard on small business with a number of companies failing as a result of lockdown and breakdowns in supply chains, Zach sees an entirely new breed of small business coming out of COVID and successfully moving forward. “Americans are really entrepreneurial by spirit. Many have left or been forced out of corporate America and they turn to doing their own thing. It’s my goal with Small Business Expo to ensure they have access to the tools to be as successful as they possibly can.” Connect with Zach Lezberg on (LinkedIn), and follow Small Business Expo on (LinkedIn), (Facebook), (Twitter), and (Instagram).

Female representation within mining company C-suites is just 13%. Among S&P 500 companies, there are only 30 female CEOs — not one of them from mining. Topics discussed during today's conversation include: Leadership skills and characteristics inherent to women that enhance our chances of success in hierarchies built and maintained by men Recognition of men as collaborators and mentors Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) to Ethical Sustainable Growth (ESG+) How to be your authentic self in both national and corporate cultures that are not your own Self-awareness as the key to successful communication Need to catch up?

Wilde Wealth Wednesdays on Valley Business Radio are powered by the team at (Wilde Wealth Management Group), an award-winning independent financial advisory firm that provides comprehensive retirement, investment, real estate, insurance, legal and tax planning services, all under one roof. On today's show, Jason Fial with Wilde Wealth Management Group and J.D. Wyczalek with AZCollegePlanning.com talk about planning for college--and how to pay for it. (Jason Fial) is an Investment Advisor Representative with (Wilde Wealth Management Group), where he specializes in wealth management, retirement income planning and asset protection planning. Jason has more than 15 years of experience in the industry. Prior to Wilde, he served in a similar role at Country Financial where he earned accolades as a three-time "Million Dollar Round Table" qualifier. (J.D. Wyczalek) founded (AZCollegePlanning.com) in 2007 after working in the IT department at Chaparral High School for several years. During that time, he found himself doing far more there than dealing with computers. He quickly became a sounding board for talented teens still trying to nail down what they wanted to do after high school. By 2007, Wyczalek was a father three times over himself and researching all of the effective, efficient ways to help teens – and his own children – navigate the “what are you going to be when you grow up” conversation that happens in all of our heads, not to mention in conversation with friends and family by middle school.   As a result, (AZCollegePlanning.com) was born. J.D.'s mission is to help teens and even pre-teens to determine what they might want to study after high school; potential traditional and nontraditional career paths; colleges and universities they should consider; and how to best position themselves for not only acceptance into the schools of their choice, but scholarships and grants available to them at each. Over the past 13 years AZCollegePlanning.com was has helped an estimated 4,000 students – primarily from across Arizona but the occasional students from other states or even abroad as well – not only earn their way into school, but earn anywhere from $10,000 to $250,000 in scholarships per student along the way.
