PRESS RELEASE — DENVER — Inc. magazine’s editor-in-chief, James Ledbetter, is the guest on this week’s edition of Monday Morning Radio, hosted by award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart.
Ledbetter takes listeners behind the scenes and explains to small business owners and entrepreneurs the types of stories that Inc.’s editors and readers alike find most valuable.
The full interview is available to stream or download at MondayMorningRadio.com or from the iTunes store (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/monday-morning-radio/id536206924).
“Exposure in Inc. is a sure-fire way to bolster the reputation and prospect of any small business,” Rotbart explains to listeners. “If you covet that kind of visibility for your business or yourself, then you won’t want to miss this special episode.”
Ledbetter, a distinguished journalist who has been at the helm of Inc. since February 2014, tells Rotbart that Inc. seeks to “get inside the head of the entrepreneur, the founder, the person who’s running his or her own business” and provide such leaders with “practical advice that will make [their] lives better, easier, and more profitable.”
The concept of ‘overnight success’ is greatly exaggerated, Ledbetter contends. The companies that make it onto the Inc. 500 and Inc. 5000, with few exceptions, “got there because they stuck at it because they figured out how to solve problems, and maybe had a little bit of luck,” he adds.
