Business Roundtable is On-Air. Please check out all of the great guests who were kind enough to contribute their vast knowledge, and expertise to the show. Thank you all for helping build the show in year one. You can see the Guest list below. My apologies for anyone I may have missed.

There are many people behind the scenes who also contributed to the 45+ episodes in year 1. The Team at KFNX is responsible for all of the technical aspects from recording to editing, and a big thank you to all of them – Chet, Zac, Cody, LJ, Norm.

Of course the show would not happen without Producer Steve, who deserves a special mention. Steven is also one of the core staff at KFNX. Thanks to Francis, my brother and one time partner at KFNX. Also, I appreciate the support, feedback and encouragement (from day one) of the KFNX owner, Bill Brady, who greenlit the show.

Other honorable mentions go to my wife who helped with tons of organization and support. Brian Melman helped with feedback and business content, and appeared on the show too. He is a old friend, and business associate. Last but not least, the main contributor and guest; Denver Nowicz with He helped with the show layout, content, guest recs, and even the title. Denver has helped me in the financial industry, a good friend, and business partner.

The show was created as a voice for Entrepreneurs, Business Owners and High Level Executives to discuss the topics and issues they deal with on a regular basis. Operating a business can be complicated, and one must know sales, finance, investing, management, and marketing all at once. The Team you assemble and the people you associate with become invaluable. Hopefully in the last year we have provided some insights and advice with the knowledge of our guests.
