"I have known Mike for some two years via our connection eCademy. On Sunday the 7th of February I was interviewed by Mike on his Jnet Radio Station. (www.jnetradio.com) I have never been very good at talking about myself but Mike managed to make me sound good! Mike's radio station is well worth tuning into which is easy to do from your computer. I would like to recommend that all readers of this testimonial connect with Mike; some of his "magic" may rub-off on you like it did on me. Thanks Mike for my introduction to live radio broadcasting.

"Thank you Mike for inviting me along today to help man the Business Advice Zone, at the British Franchise Show in Olympia. It was fun being a little island of (in)sanity in the middle of a 100 Franchise Business Stalls. I can vaguely remember helping a lady set a up a lingerie business in Ealing, listening to a gentleman outline his garage (the music) web mall, another lady who wanted to start a catering business and first off, was a lady who wanted to run a group of in house masseurs. What a wide ranging set of businesses. I supposed the common piece of advice I gave them was "Give Ecademy a go." I am glad I did. Otherwise I would never have met you. Thanks also for the opportunity to speak at the Grow Your Own Business conference. That was a great little challenge which I shall refine in to another presentation for my circuit. Thank you for the opportunity. p.s. I will be sending the bill for the other work I enjoyed doing with you."
