Catalyst Business Radio Show
This was the website for Catalyst's Business Radio Show circa 2011-2013. The content is from the site's archived pages.
If you were a small business owner or considering opening a business, this was a great site to go and listen to their live broadcasts. And if you had to miss a show, there were always the Catalyst Podcasts that were available. Until one day there was the notice Our show is over, but not our mission!! I actually didn't see this notice until I had returned from a destination wedding I attended on Maui. Since we were going to Maui for the wedding of a niece, my wife decided we might as well make it a two week vacation. She did a great deal of research for Hawaiian rentals in Maui figuring it would be cheaper in the long run to rent a condo at the resort where the wedding was being held so not only we, but also our adult children and spouses could stay at one location. Fortunately the wedding was being held at the Kapalua Resort that boasted two incredible world renown golf courses, nearby beaches, and access to great concierge services where we could book trips to the Haleakala Crater, take a zip line adventure, go sea kayaking and scuba diving, go for a helicopter sightseeing trip, etc. The wedding was spectacular, and the following two weeks of vacation forfiled and surpassed all expectations. When we finally returned to Boston and our regular schedules, I was surprised and saddened to discover catalystbusinessradio.com no longer was live. I thought there may have been a legal reason for the disappearance but my neighbor, who is the former Queens assistant district attorney, Benjamin Pred suggested they may have just shut down for other, possibly financial reasons. Turns out he was right - when I looked, I discovered that the domain for CatalystBusinessRadio.com was available, so I bought it with the goal of recreating some of its content from archived pages for purely nostalgic reasons. I definitely didn't want someone else purchasing the domain and re-purposing it for something that had nothing in common with the original intentions of the Catalyst Business Radio Show.
So enjoy this trip back to 2012 when the Catalyst Business Radio Show was rockin'.

Meet the Men Behind the Mic
Jason Garey is a former business growth expert with Chet Holmes and Tony Robbins. He worked with startups as well as fortune 500 companies in order to help them find gaps in their businesses, close them and then deploy various tools, concepts, strategies and methodologies to better the overall health of the companies.
As a national sales trainer for a recruiting firm focused on finding employment for recently discharged military personnel he was able to help displaced members of the armed services find employment.
While taking on these various contracting positions, he also owned an executive recruiting firm, a decorative concrete curbing business, a commercial real estate investment company and a franchise called Tumblebus just to name a few.
With an interest in the energy management space, he worked for Wisuite , a Canadian international wireless energy management company as their VP of Operations. Understanding the importance of strategic partnerships in down economies, he established the Wisuite brand in the US. He accomplished this by establishing and maintaining clients like Marriot, Holiday Inn, Days and Hampton Inns and the Venetian Palazzo in Las Vegas Nevada. to name a few. Dealing with project sizes ranging in the millions he was able to develop processes that completely streamlined the financing and project management functions for the company.
Jason was then recruited to work as the sales trainer and sales manager for the energy management division of Princetongreen.org . He was subsequently introduced to Chet Holmes International, a sales training company. Chet Holmes and Tony Robbins then formed a company called Business Breakthroughs which Jason was part of the coaching stable.
Here, Jason averaged a client list of 10 to 15 individual businesses ranging from startup to 50 million dollars in revenues. Two recent case studies which Jason was a part of show massive growth in short time frames. In one instance, two months into the client coach engagement, he employed strategies that added 50k dollars in revenues per month. One and a half months into another engagement a commodities brokerage firm out of Houston doubled the sales in April of any other prior month in company history. Jason still commits some of his energies to the renewable energy sectors partnering with an electric car manufacturer and reseller of electric cars as well as a rainwater catchment systems company in order to bring solutions to the masses when it comes to improving the quality and quantity of the water supply here in the United States and Abroad. He is currently involved with Charity:Water which is a collaboration that focuses on bringing clean drinking water to over 1 billion people who currently lack the access to it today.
Jason continues to coach companies all over the country while performing the duties of being the co-host of the radio show.
Jason wants to restore the faith in this country that brings the 50% of people who are in despair back to a prosperous position. He considers the radio show as his platform to do just that.
Scott A. Rozanski was born and raised in Sylvania, Ohio only to depart for some time to serve as an Intelligence Specialist in the U.S. Navy from 1983-1987. Scott has a Bachelor of Science from the University of Toledo (1993) and a Master of Science from The University of Findlay (1996).
Scott comes from a family of entrepreneurs. His father was a successful salesman for Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance (later Mass Mutual) for close to 40 years; his mother ran a successful daycare center for over 20 years (Circus World Childcare Center); and his step-father, Clyde Craig was a very successful electrical contractor for well over 25 years starting and operating Craig Electric Company up until his death in 1996. Scott learned the important lessons about being an entrepreneur from these very successful family members that have made him a success in his own endeavors today.
Scott started his first business in 2000 -- Home Instead Senior Care. In his first year of running the business, Scott exceeded nearly all revenue growth records of any other home care owner in the network and broke-even in his business in less than 9 months! Scott continues to grow his home care business and has achieved multi-million dollar sales levels over his years as owner.
Scott also is an experienced real estate investor and manager. Scott started investing in real estate in 2004 and by 2006 had acquired over 50 properties. Scott now manages three real estate companies and knows very well the trials and tribulations associated with real estate investing during a very down economy.
Since Scott joined the ranks of entrepreneurs, he has been tireless in helping businesses get up and running or helping them to survive. Only after helping some friends open their own businesses and discovering from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics that 8 out of 10 businesses failed in 5 years or less did Scott found Catalyst Business Coaching & Development in 2009. He did this in the hopes of having some impact on these negative statistics. In fact, Scott made it his mission to seek out small businesses and to help them beat the overwhelming odds of business success. In this short time, Scott has coached many small businesses to become more efficient, more effective and thus more profitable.
In June of 2010, Scott also opened up a women's boutique clothing store called Juni Boutique in Uptown Sylvania, Ohio (his first retail endeavor), with his wife Lisa. Within 3.5 months, the business had broken even. After 16 months, Scott and Lisa sold the business for a profit to move on to bigger and better adventures. Scott knows about profitability and leadership and being able to survive in any market condition, "Sure, running a business may not be easy all of the time, but if you have a strong vision, faith, sound values, and strong profitability, you can survive any storm."
Scott lives in Sylvania, Ohio with his wife Lisa and his two children Chloe and Jude.
