James Madison: Modern Debates / Barnett Helzberg, Jr. on Mentoring Entrepreneurs
Just a quick glance at the front page, and itís easy to tell what issues are heating up Washington these days: the separation of church and state, states' rights, and the limits of presidential power.
Some things, as they say, just donít change.
Wednesday on Up to Date, Steve Kraske talks with historian Jeff Broadwater about the very origins of these debates and the person behind many them. James Madison, our fourth president, set the bar on a lot of the discussions weíre having today. So what did one of our founding fathers have to say about the issues we still canít resolve today?
In the second portion of Wednesday's Up to Date, Steve Kraske welcomes Barnett Helzberg, Jr..
Helzberg had a mentor. His name was Ewing Kauffman, the one-time owner of the Kansas City Royals.
That relationship was so successful, that Barnett Helzberg got an idea for a business mentoring program that is now in its 17th year -- the Helzberg Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program. The idea is to pass on the experiences of successful businessmen and women...to those who are at pivotal points in their careers.
Helzberg talks about a new book he's written on the program, Entrepreneurs and Mentors Equals Success.
