Building Wealth: How Smart Business Owners Do It

chris-hurn

Are you passing up your best wealth-building tool? Chris Hurn, cofounder and CEO of Mercantile Capital Corporation joins host Carrie Perrien Smith on Business: Engaged! He’ll talk about when and why it makes sense to purchase commercial property.

Cash flow is king when it comes to small business financial success. Most business owners perceive they cannot afford to own the building where they operate. Others don’t want to tie up their cash with a big mortgage payment. But with property values and interest rates at historic lows, this might be the wealth-building opportunity of a lifetime.

In this episode of Business: Engaged!, we talk with Chris Hurn. He is the co-founder and CEO of Mercantile Capital Corporation, a nationwide, commercial lending firm that specializes in SBA 504 loans for business owners who want to own their commercial property.  In his new book, The Entrepreneur’s Secret to Creating Wealth: How the Smartest Business Owners Build Their Fortunes, he reveals how the smartest business owners build their fortunes.

Why Co-Working Has Transformed How Entrepreneurs Start Up

josh-clemence

Josh Clemence talks about how co-working is changing the way entrepreneurs work.

The internet and technology advances have changed the way we start up our businesses. It has changed where and how we work and how we connect to others. In this episode of Business: Engaged!, we talk about the concept of co-working. Never heard of it? I bet you’ve wished for it.iceberg-logo

Entrepreneurship advocate Josh Clemence tells us how co-working sets the stage for a thriving start up. Without Josh, the Iceberg co-working facility and the Northwest Arkansas Entrepreneurship Alliance would not be helping others make their ideas reality.

At the time of the original interview, this architecture grad turned tech entrepreneur was the brand manager for Acumen Brands, an e-commerce company located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Founded in 2009, the company operates twelve separate online stores in twelve different niche categories and has seventy employees.

Since then, Josh has launched his own start-up. BLKBOXLabs provides creative, communication, and technology integration services.
