Ken Lain is a master at cultivating profits from a small business in a small market. Along with his wife, Lisa, Ken owns Watters Garden Center in Prescott, Arizona – a city of about 42,000 residents located in the mountainous area of central Arizona.

Ken, a graduate of host Dean Rotbart’s “Reputation Tool Chest” course at Wizard Academy, relies on a rich bouquet of marketing tools – including over-the-air radio programs, YouTube videos, on-site courses, and rock ‘em, sock ‘em customer service to beat back the predatory tactics and pricing of nearby Big Box competitors.

In high school and college, Ruben Gonzalez displayed hardly a lick of athletic talent. Yet he dreamed of becoming an Olympian and being counted among the elite athletes of the world.

That he did.

From benchwarmer to record holder, Ruben made courage and perseverance his mantra, and went on to become the only Olympic athlete ever to compete in four Olympic games in four different decades – most recently in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, at age 47.

These days Ruben is a much-in-demand corporate speaker and author, translating his strategies for success from the icy luge track to the fast-paced, often icy business and career world.

Reputation coach and host Dean Rotbart recently visited with Ruben at his home near the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. Hear Dean’s gold-medal report this week on Monday Morning Radio.

[Listen and Profit Now™]

The technology that powers Pokémon GO is coming to a small business, perhaps yours, soon.

Augmented Reality, which allows smartphone and tablet users to locate, capture and train virtual Pokémon creatures in real-world settings, is also enabling consumers to test drive virtual furniture in their living rooms, authors to make photos leap off the pages of their books, real estate agents to offer immersive virtual tours of homes for sale, and doctors to test, virtually, surgical procedures on live patients.

IT Craft, based in Ukraine, is a leader in the global effort to bring Augmented Realty, known as AR, to Main Street businesses.

This week, Anthony Suddia, a Kharkiv-based content specialist with IT Craft, takes host Dean Rotbart and his Monday Morning Radio listeners on a wild tour of AR and how it is transforming the small business world.

Brace yourself, for your own reality is about to be augmented.
