Michael Tunney, founder and CEO of KeySmart, a company that produces swiss-style key holders that help people get rid of bulky key-rings.
Living in a society where most people’s focus is about making money, it’s rare to see someone who has the courage to choose passion over paycheck. In 2013, Michael put 2 weeks’ notice in his $140,000 a year robotics engineering job.
Michael came up with the idea for KeySmart simply because he was sick of always carrying a bunch of keys that would stab his thigh. After inventing the proto-types and raising nearly $330,000 on Kickstarter, he successfully brought these efficient key-organizing tools to life. And now, besides the basic KeySmart that would save people valuable space and eliminate jingling noises in their pockets, the KeySmart Pro with smart location tracking is also on the market, so no one will ever have to worry about losing the keys again!
Despite the success of KeySmart, Michael is still taking small salary of only $40,000 a year. He puts everything back into product development and business growth, for his happiness comes from being motivated and creating great products that keep customers excited. www.mykeysmart.com

We have a great show today. We are meeting with Scott Nichols of Floyd's 99 Barbershop. With 115+ units across the U.S., the barbershop known for its edgy, alternative vibes that embrace individuality is revitalizing its franchise efforts. The Denver-based franchisor had never emphasized a strategic effort toward franchise growth -- everything had been word of mouth through personal relationships with the founders, existing customers and simply people walking by who loved the concept. As it nears 20 years of business and looks ahead to the next 20, Floyd's 99 wants to expand its footprint with strong franchise partners that embody its brand and vibe. To help with the expansion, they hired seasoned franchise executive, Scott Nichols. He joins Floyd’s 99 with more than 25 years of franchise experience – working for nationally-recognized brands like Dunkin’, Jimmy Johns and Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores as well as emerging franchise concepts like SPENGA where he grew the brand from one company owned to 62 franchises sold. Today, Scott will share the founders' story (three brothers from the sport's concession business), how the brand differs from other barbershops/hair salons, growth/opportunities in the hair/beauty space, rich culture the brand embodies, its franchise strategy, where it sees itself in the marketplace, and more. In Part Two, we play a clip from our popular Great Quotes in Franchising podcast.
As a coach, I met with people all the time who talk about wanting a transformed life and struggle to make it happen.
What is the common deniminator among leaders and those living a life of success? After coaching some very successful individuals and teams he is what I have learned. They use the emotions of hunger and drive to compel them to where they want to go. The swim upstream while others are floating downstream, they see the impossible as in the possible. Hunger and Drive allow them to take a by all means approach to life and goals.
Today lets talk about these 3 keys:
If you are ready to start living your extraordinary life of success hit play and let's go.

A Real Women on Health online radio show interview with Kelley Connors, MPH, Womens’ Life Coach and Betsy Furler, CEO, Communications Circles
Betsy Furler started out as a speech pathologist and delighted in helping young children and adults improve their ability to do well at school and feel good about themselves in their early years. However, as much as she enjoyed “being” a speech pathologist, she listened to her heart which inspired her and to expand her capacity beyond the school walls.
It turns out that by experimenting with technology, she found herself immersed in the new field of digital health including using applications for a more inclusive society. Her interest grew as she witnessed the use of digital technology by a broader population of people, including the disabled and elderly to improve their health and wellbeing.
Today, she shares her knowledge about using technology and app development to educate others to make a difference for the growing elderly population. She has spoken at many national and international conferences on the use of technology and disabilities including SXSWInteractive,

Before you begin to prepare your income tax return, listen to this weeks checklist. Not every category will apply to you, so just pick those that do, and make sure you have that information available. When you're ready to prepare your tax return you'll be surprised at how much time you'll save by organizing your information beforehand. This will make your tax preparation much easier, and helps you clearly see where your money goes each year. Having this information in a report is much easier than going through your checks and bank statements for the entire year.
My guest to help you through all th new changes for 2019 is Your Tax Lady, Kathy Bylkas, an enrolled agent and America’s tax expert working for you for over 40 years!
