Hey there Business Bloomers!  This episode of the TGIF Business Networking Hangout is all about retirement planning for small business owners and solopreneurs. 


About the Topic: Retirement Planning for Small Business Owners and Solopreneurs

When it comes to retirement planning, full time employees often have retirement planning built in to their job benefits.  But small business owners and solopreneurs don’t have the convenience of a built in retirement plan.

About the Guest, Ray Russo

TGIF Business Networking Hangout guest, Ray Russo


Joining me will be special guest +Ray Russo, Owner of Virtuoso Capital Management. I met Ray at a Coachella Valley local business networking group that we both belong to, the Desert Networking Professionals (DNP). Ray had seen previous episodes of the TGIF Business Networking Hangout, and asked “what do I have to do to be on your TGIF show?”  When I told him he had to create a Google+ account, fill out his profile, promote the episode, and leave comments under the event listing, he said “done.”  So now Ray is my guest, and we get to learn about retirement planning for small business owners and solopreneurs, woohoo!
