Startup Stories: Lounge Talk Radio

I Love Lounge Talk Radio

Tell us about your product or service.
Toni Slate and Gretchen Cooper created Lounge Talk Radio as a vehicle for connecting people, ideas and product and services we love with others. We actively promote artists, authors, musicians through interviews and sharing via social networking sites.

What inspired you to launch your business?
We both had active blogs upon meeting we decided to collaborate our ideas and interests to create one portal of information. We quickly found out two heads were much more effective and productive than one.
In 2010, Gretchen was terminated from her job as a driver for the Saudi Royal family because she is female. This was a difficult time for Gretchen and she decided it was time to step into the unknown world of being self employed.
Gretchen and Toni shared many of the same interests in music, art and ideas so our collaboration fell very easily into place.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
We assist people in making their goals a reality. We do this by networking with people and connecting others. Our daily networking saves people time, energy, and money because we use a pay it forward business model. For example we are currently promoting an across the country tour based on the book American Gods by Neil Gaiman. We assist the core team in finding company and individual sponsors to make the trip a reality. We also promote and advertise events on our website.

Lounge Talk Radio has a kid’s page in which Gretchen’s daughter, Neema is the host. She is four years old and is really excited about getting Lounge Talk Radio Kids on the air!
e have just added a head chef, Ms. Hilmi Ahmad to start a new phase of LTR called Lounge Talk Radio Kitchen in which people can submit recipes and cooking video demonstrations. We are really looking forward to adding this to our website in the coming weeks.

What has been your biggest challenge and how are you working to overcome it?
The past year has been challenging and extremely rewarding at the same time. A friend of ours said to us ” Do you know why Lounge Talk Radio will become successful? Because you are both doing this from scratch. You are doing it with nothing but an idea.”

He was right. We could say lack of finances is a challenge, but in reality money could not buy the relationships we have formed with our networking partners. They are truly priceless.
Toni and Gretchen are students of the Powermind System developed by Dr. Michael Monroe Kiefer. We actively use our daily thoughts and ideas to create our reality and Lounge Talk Radio. We have found the principals in Dr. Kiefer’s books and lectures to be a guiding force in which we base all of our goals and decisions on the Powermind System insights.

We are launching a crowdfunding campaign to help us upgrade our studio equipment and are using our networking partners shout out videos for our main crowdfunding campaign video!

Give us one word that people might use to describe you.

Give us an insider tip that relates to your industry.

  1. Amazing issues here. I am very happy to peer
    your post. Thank you so much and I am having a look ahead to contact you.
    Will you kindly drop me a mail?

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is
    needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly
    appreciated. Thank you

  3. I have seen many useful things on your web site about pc’s. However, I’ve got the judgment that lap tops are still not quite powerful enough to be a sensible choice if you frequently do projects that require plenty of power, including video editing. But for web surfing, microsoft word processing, and majority of other common computer work they are fine, provided you don’t mind the small screen size. Thank you for sharing your notions.

  4. Thanks for your write-up on the traveling industry. I might also like contribute that if you’re a senior taking into consideration traveling, it can be absolutely crucial to buy traveling insurance for senior citizens. When traveling, seniors are at high risk of having a health-related emergency. Getting the right insurance policies package on your age group can safeguard your health and give you peace of mind.

  5. A further issue is that video gaming has become one of the all-time most important forms of excitement for people of various age groups. Kids play video games, and adults do, too. Your XBox 360 is just about the favorite video games systems for individuals that love to have a lot of video games available to them, and who like to learn live with other folks all over the world. Thanks for sharing your opinions.

  6. I have learned several important things via your post. I will also like to convey that there will be a situation that you will obtain a loan and do not need a co-signer such as a Federal Student Support Loan. However, if you are getting that loan through a standard bank then you need to be willing to have a cosigner ready to allow you to. The lenders can base their very own decision over a few components but the most significant will be your credit history. There are some financial institutions that will likewise look at your job history and choose based on that but in many cases it will depend on your rating.

  7. I was just seeking this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top web sites are full of garbage.

  8. My brother suggested I might like this website. He was once totally right. This put up truly made my day. You cann’t believe just how a lot time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

  9. Thanks for the ideas you have provided here. Additionally, I believe there are some factors which will keep your automobile insurance premium down. One is, to bear in mind buying motors that are within the good set of car insurance businesses. Cars that are expensive tend to be at risk of being snatched. Aside from that insurance policies are also based on the value of your automobile, so the higher priced it is, then the higher the premium you make payment for.

  10. Hiya, I am really glad I have found this info. Today bloggers publish just about gossips and internet and this is really annoying. A good website with exciting content, that is what I need. Thanks for keeping this site, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can’t find it.

  11. After research just a few of the weblog posts in your website now, and I actually like your way of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark web site record and can be checking back soon. Pls try my website as properly and let me know what you think.

  12. I have discovered some new issues from your site about desktops. Another thing I have always imagined is that laptop computers have become an item that each family must have for a lot of reasons. They supply you with convenient ways in which to organize the home, pay bills, shop, study, tune in to music and even watch tv series. An innovative method to complete these types of tasks is by using a laptop computer. These computers are mobile ones, small, strong and easily transportable.

  13. I realized more new things on this weight-loss issue. Just one issue is a good nutrition is vital when dieting. A tremendous reduction in bad foods, sugary foods, fried foods, sugary foods, pork, and white-colored flour products might be necessary. Possessing wastes organisms, and toxic compounds may prevent objectives for fat loss. While specified drugs temporarily solve the condition, the unpleasant side effects are usually not worth it, and they also never supply more than a non permanent solution. It is just a known idea that 95 of fad diets fail. Many thanks for sharing your thinking on this blog.

  14. Thanks for your posting on this web site. From my experience, there are times when softening up a photograph might provide the photo shooter with a chunk of an imaginative flare. More often than not however, the soft clouds isn’t just what exactly you had as the primary goal and can in many cases spoil an otherwise good snapshot, especially if you thinking about enlarging them.

  15. Thanks for your article. I would like to remark that the very first thing you will need to accomplish is determine whether you really need credit repair. To do that you have got to get your hands on a copy of your credit profile. That should not be difficult, because the government mandates that you are allowed to obtain one absolutely free copy of your credit report yearly. You just have to check with the right individuals. You can either look into the website for the Federal Trade Commission as well as contact one of the leading credit agencies straight.

  16. Right here is the perfect site for anyone who would like to find out about this topic. You know a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic which has been discussed for decades. Excellent stuff, just excellent!

  17. I don’t even understand how I ended up right here, however I believed this post was once good. I don’t understand who you’re however certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger for those who aren’t already ;) Cheers!

  18. Thanks for the new things you have discovered in your writing. One thing I want to discuss is that FSBO connections are built after a while. By presenting yourself to the owners the first saturday their FSBO is announced, ahead of masses start calling on Thursday, you develop a good interconnection. By giving them methods, educational resources, free reports, and forms, you become a strong ally. Through a personal curiosity about them and their problem, you produce a solid connection that, in many cases, pays off as soon as the owners decide to go with a real estate agent they know as well as trust — preferably you actually.
