It’s a small world, isn’t it? As many of you know, I had a career in real estate before moving into the media with my show on Fox in 2013 and then taking over as the morning show’s lead in 2015.
Prior to that, I spent 13 years working for the Weichert family as a broker, recruiter, trainer and corporate vice president. I loved the job and the people I worked with for sure. Still in contact with my friend Jim Weichert and acting as a broker for their “Lead Network” in Massachusetts and Washington State.
Almost every year since I left I have returned to host their cancer relief benefit at Fiddler’s Elbow in Bedminster. My former colleague Ian Leong reached out to me after a decade to reconnect via LinkedIn (luckily I was reinstated after being in prison on social media!).
Ian works for a company called CEO Warrior. I had the opportunity to meet CEO Doug Kaplan and COO Mike Disney.
The company specializes in helping talented people in the trades start and run their businesses smoothly. We had a conversation about how the government has hurt small businesses and what policymakers can do to help trade move forward. New ideas on incentives to get young people directly into training after high school.
Mike has exceptional insights into what we can do to empower youth and businesses in the Garden State. If you are looking for a job or looking to start a business, or get out of a big company, log on!
