Keeping Track of Time with TimeSolv and Scott Clasen

There is a reason some companies thrive and others are happy just to survive. Our advertising agency keeps track of the time we spend on behalf of our clients. It's how we get paid. It's much the same as lawyers, CPA firms or freelance professions. This spring our computers crashed and our time keeping system went with them. Sure we had it backed up but when we called the company to inquire about replacing our software we were told we had to buy new...and at a crazy price. We searched for a solution and found TimeSolv. After using the product for four months we called Scott Clasen and asked if he would be kind enough to join us on the Business News Hour. Why? We think you should know about how some companies...thrive.

Buying A Meth House? What You Don’t Know

A month ago I was sitting in a Windsor Heights City Council meeting and heard a frightening story about a family who nearly purchased a "Meth House" and the dangers that presents. Meet Sarah Trone Garriott and her story about the lack of transparency, regulations, training and a "buyer beware" incident that should scare us all. Also on this broadcast is John Krusenstjerna the owner of Iowa CTS Cleaners who travels across Iowa checking for meth infected housing and, sometimes, cleans them. Sometimes...

Robert Vedral and The Vistage Board

Several weeks ago we met Robert Vedral at a business meeting, exchanged cards and promised to re-connect. Frankly, it was something about his first impression that was intriguing. (Remember first impressions count!) Here Robert explains what he does with Vistage, what it is, who comes, what he hears,  why it exists and who fits. You may never have heard of Vistage before but, now you have.

Startup Stories with Mike Colwell and Steven Brockshus of TERVA

Even though Iowa is considered an "agricultural state" we don't see that many startups come through our door that use technology and agriculture to enrich the issues of business. Today we met Steven Brockshus the founder of TERVA a land information and management service that tracks land for sale and land sold. From the dairy farm to the world of technology meet Steven who will be part of the Mike Colwell Startup Stories from SquareOne DSM. Good stuff!
