As entrepreneurs, you all crave new skills and strategies to maximize business growth but finding time to read a book or attend a seminar can be a struggle. It’s tough enough to find the work-life balance when you’re juggling your families and your work responsibilities. 

For me, podcasts are a quick way to sneak in some additional learning, and I’m not alone. According to Podcast Insights, more than half of the U.S. population listens to podcasts—at home (49 percent) and in the car (22 percent). 

That’s why we are putting a renewed focus on our TalkFloor Podcast, which has recently been relaunched on iTunes. From online sales to retail solutions, the TalkFloor Podcast offers the latest insider perspectives with interviews hosted by our illustrious industry commentator Dave Foster.

Packed with expert interviews, in-depth conversations and creative content you can absorb while commuting, waiting for a flight, or during your workouts, the TalkFloor Podcast is a way you can stay up-to-date on flooring news and insight. The goal of these interviews is to arm you with the insight you need to help you be a leader in flooring. Recent highlights include: 

  • Piet Dossche, president of USFloors and executive vice president, Shaw Industries, talks about the company’s latest resilient introduction, Coretec Stone, and how it aims to be a game changer for installation and a competitor to ceramic tile and stone products. He also talks about the entrepreneurial spirit that helped USFloors became a force in flooring.  
  • Brian Carson, president and CEO of AHF Products, discusses the purchase of Armstrong’s hardwood flooring unit by American Industrial Partners, the brands involved in the acquisition, and plans for those brands going forward.
  • Online marketing expert John Simonson of Webstream Dynamics and discusses competition from big box retailers and how independent retailers can be more effective competing with them.
