On Thursday, May 16th MSNBC’s Your Business–the national television program hosted by JJ Ramberg and focused exclusively on America’s small businesses–will be shooting on-camera interviews with small business owners at the Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Conference & Expo hosted by Nationwide Insurance at the Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio.Â This is a great opportunity for registered attendees of the conference to get national media exposure for their respective businesses.
Your Business will be taping several segments for the show.Â In each segment, we’re looking for succinct nuggets of information:
“BUSINESS ANSWERS” In this segment Your Business is looking for questions from small business owners seeking answers to help manage their business. If your question is chosen, the Your Business panel of experts will answer your question during the “Business Answers” portion of the program. Suggested subject areas for questions: Human Resources, Marketing, Technology, Managing Growth, Legal Issues, Negotiations, Protecting your Idea, Insurance, etc.
“MY GREAT IDEA” Tell us something clever you’ve learned while running your business to share with your peers.Â Ideas can be super simple,Â e.g.:Â “I’ve saved $1000Â this year refilling ink cartridges instead of buying new ones, and the quality is exactly the same.”Â Advice should be geared towards helping fellow entrepreneurs build a successful business.
Your Business is broadcast Sundays at 7:30am EST on MSNBC with a repeat airing the following Saturday at 5:30am EST. Learn more at the Your Business website: www.openforum.com/yourbusiness.
