Episode 007 How to Start a Business When You’re Unemployed

– In this episode, Mark and Adele respond to listener questions about the advantages of audio podcasting, how to subscribe to our podcasts through iTunes and on the web, and how we achieve good sound quality in the Oyster900 studio (which doesn’t have soundproof walls!). Then, they discuss how everyone has skills that can be useful to start a business, and how unemployment can actually be a good thing if it leads to creating a business. Mark talks about what it takes to brand and market a startup, and describes a success story of one of his clients, Diaz Gates, who will be featured in a future episode.
