Business owners need not leave the office to benefit from SCORE services or PodCamp City Online

August 2, 2007

No matter how big the payoff might be, many small business owners have little time for off-site training or business counseling. That’s why two innovative resources are worth mentioning:  SCORE House Calls and PodCamp City Online

SCORE House Calls: As Chuck Auerbach describes in “Westchester SCORE expands services,” SCORE Westchester’s House Calls program is a new form of client outreach.  Instead of requiring clients to steal away from work to attend workshops or business counseling sessions, House Calls permits clients to receive valuable business counseling at their places of business.  Other SCORE services clients can receive at work (or at home) include: online training, and email and telephone counseling.

PodCamp City Online: Virtual conferencing – via teleconferences, talk- and text-based chat rooms, distance learning sessions, or all three combined –  is the newest form of New Media meet-up. Consequently, it is not surprising that podcamps – self-described “unconferences” about everything podcasting – would morph from gatherings at tangible brick and mortar conference facilities and shipboards, to  convenings held wholly online.  Posts by SCORE Counselor Lisa  Tolliver, whose online seminar at PodCamp City Online was entitled: “The Power of Podcasting for Performers, Artists, Talk Radio Hosts, and Entrepreneurs,” describe the first virtual podcamp and its benefits.

SCORE Radio’s next guest is a knockout: boxing champion-turned-entrepreneur, Doug (“the Cobra”) DeWitt

It’s going down! “It” is the Valentine’s Day match of 2007.

In one corner will be: three-time middleweight boxing world champion/trainer/actor Doug (“the Cobra”) DeWitt. In the other: SCORE Chapter 306 counselor, Chuck Auerbach. The men will face off across mics, not mats.

The venue: New York radio WVOX 1460 AM, not a ring. The time: 11:30 AM to high noon, Eastern.

For some, going rounds with the Cobra has been a challenge, if not a TKO. But this is a sweetheart of a match that Chuck (a heavy-hitter with SCORE Westchester) can handle. You see, Chuck will be interviewing Doug about the prizefighter’s “boxer’s workout” training program.

Here’s how Wikipedia\Doug_Dewitt describes the boxer’s business, Doug DeWitt’s Boxing Studio:

He offers extensive work on speed bag, heavy bag, and wall bag. The focus is to improve hand speed, coordination, and strength. Technique, punch combinations, and defensive movements are taught one-on-one with hand pad contact.

Incorporated into the training is an intensive cardio workout with jump rope repetition, lightweight training, and use of the medicine ball. Footwork and ring movement are also taught.

Class format is specifically designed to be a “boxer’s workout.” The training for both men and women is modified to each individual’s capabilities.

Among those trained [have been]: Doug LaBassa, Anthony Scagleone, Tim Herlihy, John Norrison, Julien LaScala, [and] Mario Penzarri.

Doug trains both children and adults. DougDeWittBoxing.com, describes the children’s classes thusly:

The Ultimate Way To Build Confidence, Self-Esteem, Develop Self-Discipline, Self-Control, and Athletic Skills, While Having Lots of Fun!

DeWitt’s site describes the adult classes as “a complete workout for men and women. […] Classes are offered in a group setting or scheduled one-on-one to accommodate the student’s schedule.”

Come join the fray. Tune your radio to WVOX 1460 AM, listen live online at www.wvox.com, or phone the call-in line: (01) 914.636.0110.

The countdown has begun. Let’s get ready to rumble!
