The Woodlands, TX (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
This week, award-winning talk show host, Jim Blasingame, celebrates 10 years of broadcasting his radio program from the Insperity Invitational in The Woodlands, Texas, a tradition he began when he broadcasted from Insperity’s inaugural Champions Golf tournament in 2004. Internationally recognized as “The Voice of Small Business,” Blasingame is the host of The Small Business Advocate® Show, the world’s only live, weekday syndicated program dedicated to small businesses. Blasingame has brought the professional golf world to his audience each year of the Insperity Invitational by interviewing such golf legends as Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, and John Mahaffey.
Also the author of the new book, “The Age of the Customer®: Prepare for the Moment of Relevance”, Blasingame conducts more than 1,000 live interviews annually with his Brain Trust®, the world’s largest community of small business experts. More than 2,700 podcasts are produced annually from these interviews.
"We’re very fortunate to have had Jim host his excellent program from our signature golf event for the past 10 years, and we’re proud of our 10-year partnership with him," said Jay Mincks, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Insperity. "As the preeminent small business thought-leader Jim has helped countless entrepreneurs start, run, and grow their businesses; as a futurist he helps them see a little farther over the horizon, all of which aligns perfectly with Insperity's mission to help businesses succeed."
"To be able to celebrate three of my favorite things--small business, golf, and supporting charities--at one venue has been a great experience," says Blasingame. "And all of this has been made possible thanks to the support of our Brain Trust members, our sponsor, Insperity, the Champion’s Tour, and of course, my heroes, small business owners."
Blasingame’s thought leadership is also evident in his prolific writing. He is a syndicated columnist for newspapers and online publications, including Forbes.com, Nasdaq.com, American City Business Journals, etc., and his third book, The Age of the Customer®: Prepare for the Moment of Relevance, was released in January 2014. To date, Blasingame’s three books have sold over 120,000 copies. He is also a high-energy keynote speaker, where he teaches big businesses how to speak small business as a second language and small businesses how to compete with the big guys.
For his work and leadership on behalf of small business, Jim has received national awards from the U.S. Small Business Administration, American Chamber of Commerce Executives and Association of Small Business Development Centers. TALKERS Magazine has identified Blasingame as one of the most important radio talk show hosts in America.
