Stop Bleeding Cash
As the author of an Amazon best-selling book on finance, Barry allows his clients to achieve education before planning to achieve their goals. Stop Bleeding Cash addresses the most innovative ways to achieve financial wealth and independence, professing that “Wealth is not achieved by saving your income. It is achieved by leveraging the income you have saved”.
Barry’s radio brand brought a whole new perspective in business. Close Up On San Diego Business was born in 2013, and focused on creating awareness to local business ventures. Presenting the small business owner to the public via broadcast and online radio exposure in a talk radio format, created a branding for the business owner not normally achievable in routine business marketing. As a community service, Barry created a branding for each business owner to use from his radio format, and carved out individual interviews on Youtube to empower the message for as long as the business owner wanted.
As a by product of his radio show, Barry created a new brand, in his Close Up Connections. Every business owner looks for something special in the businesses they connect with for sales, support, and vendor services. From the radio platform, Barry quickly recognized the public service he could provide, by publicly introducing business to business. His philosophy was to fight the big box mentality by collaborative means and bringing small businesses together to create strength in numbers.
Growing up in a family surrounded by disability, Barry serves on the board of the Disabled Business Persons Association. Giving back to the community starts with supporting those that helped secure our freedom. DBA supports veterans and the disabled veteran community with education, connections, and support services, including help with Entrepreneurial Needs.
