Mitten Money Podcast

Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy and, in fact, make up 99% of all businesses in the United States. Yet only 50% of them will survive their fifth year in business. Mitten Money host William Zank, will focus on helping Michigan-based business owners find answers to the tough questions that will help them succeed. How do I expand my business? What options do I have for retirement? How do I move forward when I feel stuck?
