In the guest chairs:
Father/Daughter team Moss Robertson and Katie Sanders joined me in-studio to talk about transitioning their family business from the automotive industry to the health and fitness industry. Their family is known by many Atlantans for their years running the Boomershine car dealers around town. But when it was time for something new, the two (and their respective spouses) decided to use their business prowess in a more simple business where they can really help improve the lives of their customers. During the interview they talked about their decision to get out of the car biz and how they end up deciding to get into a franchise situation with The Exercise Coach.
We then shifted gears and talked about the interesting theories behind The Exercise Coach… that you only need to work out twice a week for 20 minutes, if you’re doing it right! I was a bit skeptical, so they challenged me to try it for three months. I’ll do it – and get back to you!
In the headlines:
- We continue to talk about the controversy over GSU’s student run radio station 88.5 WRAS & the new deal with Georgia Public Broadcasting. Here’s a link to the AJC interview with GSU President Mark Becker.
- And while we’re on the subject of GSU, we also discuss their interest in taking over The Ted for a major mixed use development project for the school.
- Messaging service SnapChat not as fleeting and private as you may have thought. (Is anything?)
- And do you spend more to shop at Whole Foods? Investors are urging the company to lower prices to stay competitive. We talk about it.
