Today, the most successful businesses and entrepreneurs thrive through connectivity, socialization, and sharing. It is an age of WE-Commerce, an economy centered on the power of “we” instead of “me,” focused on the needs of the many over the few. On-demand, sharing economy, gig economy, collaborative consumption -­ whatever the latest term, there’s a great economic shift happening, and consequently a need to transform and overhaul our business models in order to thrive and keep up with the times.

We were joined on the show by author and CEO Billee Howard. Billee Howard is based in New York and is founder and chief engagement officer of Brandthropologie, and president of Mojo Risin Studios. She also founded Eleven, a national women’s network with the mantra ‘United We Rise United We Stand, and The House of We dedicated to the new sharing economy. Howard has been guiding companies to produce, envision, innovate, and create passionate dialogues and has had the privilege of working with many great leaders and brands including Jeffrey Katzenberg, Dreamworks Animation, Faith Popcorn, PepsiCo, Samsung, FastCompany, Boeing, Warby Parker among others. Howard was the winner of PR Week’s 30 under 30, and 40 under 40, as well as being selected for the Media Professional of the Year Award twice.

Approximately 19% of the population is caring for an adult relative (sibling, grown child, parent, neighbor) who is dealing with long term medical issues such as cancer, stroke, Alzheimers, dementia, or catastrophic injuries. Caregiving impacts people emotionally, physically and economically. Last year Americans worked millions of hours without compensation, care that would have cost $470 BILLION (the value of Walmart's annual sales, and more than the US annual Medicare budget). The pressures of caring for relatives without compensation can also impair the ability of a caregiver to hold down a "day job". Then add on huge medical expenses that can drive families into poverty and bankruptcy.

More on Amy Goyer, Author, Speaker, Consultant As AARP's Family Expert, I provide expertise on a variety of family issues - from grandparenting to family caregiving, parenting and other family relationships, multigenerational living, family history and just about anything that pertains to families! Right now the most important role I'm playing in life is that of primary caregiver for my parents who are 85 and 88.

It's often said that the chairman of the Fed is the second most powerful person in the world, next only to the president of the United States. Some say the chairman is even more powerful. When Ben Bernanke publicly stated on September 8, 2013, the Fed's intent to continue its policy of quantitative easing, global markets instantly reversed direction from a worrying downward spiral to an exuberant upward surge. Even POTUS can't do that.

Today we were joined by the president of the American College and author, Dr. Robert R. Johnson. We discussed interest rates and his new book Invest with the Fed.

While everyone's heard stories of people cleaning out an attic to find
comic books they sold at a hefty profit, it's not just the older books that
are valuable. Even comic books from the last 20 years are becoming more
collectible. Some have jumped from just a few dollars each five years ago to $50 to $100 today. Smart collectors are finding that they can make money off of this trend, but only if they treat it like they would any serious
investment.

Today we were joined by the co-owner of Metropolis Collectibles, Vincent Zurzolo.

Vincent Zurzolo is co-owner of the New York-based Metropolis
Collectibles, the world's largest vintage comic book dealership, and ComicConnect.com, the largest online vintage comic auction house. He and his partner, Stephen Fishler, hold five Guinness World Records for the most expensive comics and related collectibles ever sold.

The U.S. government is trying to figure out what moves you -- specifically what moves you to get off the couch and sign up for federal benefits.

The Obama administration is dipping into research in behavioral economics and psychology to scrutinize federal documents, websites and procedures to get a better sense of what’s working -- and what’s not working -- to make the most of government programs from college aid to veterans benefits.

Today we were joined by Chief Behavioral Strategist of Hoffeld Group, David Hoffeld.

David Hoffeld is the Chief Behavioral Strategist at Hoffeld Group, a research-based sales training, coaching and consulting firm.   David works with companies throughout North America, showing them how to align their sales message with the findings of behavioral science.  He is a respected thought leader who is widely regarded as the #1 authority on integrating behavioral science and sales.  David has also been recently been featured in Fortune, U.S. News & World Report, CBS Radio, Fox News Radio and more.
