More Than 50 Years After His Death, Walt Disney Continues to Inspire Entrepreneurs

Learn Walt’s Magic Rules of Business Success from Professor and Author Michael Goldsby

[Listen and Profit Now™]

It’s been more than 50 years since Walter Elias Disney departed for the great amusement park in the sky, yet his legacy consistently inspires new generations of business owners and creators.

Michael Goldsby and Rob Mathews, two professors of entrepreneurship at Ball Street University, have encapsulated Disney’s magic rules of success into a must-read book, Entrepreneurship the Disney Way.

As Goldsby tells host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart, two traits that Disney embodied that to this day are hard-wired into The Walt Disney Company are an obsessive commitment to product quality and a refusal to stop innovating and creating. 

For businesses owners who wish upon a star that they could emulate the success of the Disney and the Magic Kingdom, Goldsby says the pixie dust is simple: Just ask yourself time and again, “What would Walt do?”

Rudy Schmid Became a First-Time Author at 86 Years Old

America’s Guide to Starting Your Own Company

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Rudy Schmid is a veteran accountant and first-time author who’s written a book – America’s Guide to Starting Your Own Company – that’s helping large numbers of young adults launch their own side hustles free of the flaws that too often hobble new businesses.

The concise book is also helpful for established businesses, especially when it comes to hiring and managing people, and sizing up banking relationships.

Rudy seems a bit embarrassed that he waited so long to share the lessons he learned from his own accounting practice with today’s eager young entrepreneurs.

“Nonsense,” replies host Dean Rotbart, “At 86 years of age, Rudy is an inspiration to every would-be author who thinks he or she is ‘too old’ to start.”

By the way, the Guide has been so well-received that Rudy is already working on a sequel, “How to Build Your Company for Success.”
