With 11 years as a Regional Vice President supervising 2800 hourly reports, 400 mid-level managers, and 17 stores at CarMax, Vaughn had major responsibility to ensure that his teams were performing at their best.

When sales flattened for the company, this street-earned MBA knew the shift in higher sales was grounded in education and empowerment: employees must believe both in themselves and the product.

The sales teams needed an overhaul. Vaughn went to work and developed a new sales process and  training program that became a true game changer.  Within 18 months of creating and implementing his new program at CarMax, close rates zoomed up more than 50%. And, even more impressively, Vaughn’s training system was adopted company-wide boosting company revenues to over $13 billion in sales!

Present Tense Future Perfect


Wenesdays 2pm eastern

Welcome to the program!

In 2017, Present Tense, Future Perfect focused on the pace of accelerated change in our society, driven by the factors of Technology, Climate Change, Innovation, and Globalization. We asked the question how institutions and we, as individuals, could cope with incessant change. As importantly, if not more so, we asked if we were developing leaders capable of developing the vision and strategies to adapt and thrive amidst constant and rapid change.

Elsewhere, we have written our conclusions from the 16 weeks of discovery on these issues and we will be sharing those with you in the future.

In the immediate, however, permit us to describe the focus for the 24 radio shows we will be broadcasting in 2018.

We will be examining several themes in more depth this year, which means devoting a number of broadcasts to an aspect of the topic. The first will be Technology, the second Globalization, and the third, to coincide with the elections in the autumn, will be on the state of our Democracy.

With our first theme, we will be looking at many aspects of Technology: its link to innovation, how it changes the life sciences, what it means for the world of work in the 21st century, and how it effects what and how people learn, is but to name a few of the themes we will explore.

The subject of Globalization is vast and will cover topics such as mergers and acquisitions, a global industry such as oil and gas exploration, education, and cultural, behavioral differences. We will look at what the term means and whether or not it is restricted to our economies.

The State of Our Democracy, are we Headed to Oligarchy? Is a subject chosen to coincide with the 2018 elections. Is there such a thing as ‘American Exceptionalism’, or, is the US as likely to succumb to tyranny as a Third World nation? Are our institutions robust enough to withstand threats to the separation of powers, written into our Constitution?

Welcome to Present Tense, Future Perfect and listen to my guests who will elucidate and illuminate on each of our major topics throughout the year. Listeners are invited to call in with questions or comments during the show, which will be carried live. The recording will be available several days after the show on the BBM website under my host page.

We invite you to listen to Present Tense, Future Perfect, and to participate.  The hope is to provoke, stimulate, and inspire.

The A Game Of Business

Lorraine Lane2

Mondays 3pm eastern

Eighteen years ago Lorraine Lane was a happy corporate employee. Recently promoted, she was spearheading a major initiative at the request of the company vice president. But two weeks later she received the dreaded pink slip along with everyone else in her department, due to “budget cuts.”
What followed was two and a half years of taking on assignments as an independent contractor in order to bring income into the household; job-searching; accepting a full-time job and quitting two months later. Basically, a stressful time.
Finally, she decided to build her own business.
Today Lorraine’s business is thriving, built mostly on referrals. She coaches small businesses one-on-one, and with her partner, Jay Michlin, is guiding 12 local business owners in a year-long program, the Business Mastery Academy, to build their businesses on a solid foundation.
Lorraine also facilitates the A-Game Program, a ten-week program based on her book, Business-Building Referrals, on the art and strategy of building a business through referrals.
She brings more than two decades of learning and experience to her individual clients and A-Game participants. Having launched her consulting business in Florida, California, and then Florida once more, she understands fully the issues faced by entrepreneurs. She observes that, “I know first-hand what it takes to build a small business.”
Lorraine’s background includes an undergraduate degree in Education from the University of Vermont and a Masters in Business Administration. She served as an adjunct faculty member for San Jose State University’s Professional Development Center and has served in that capacity for a local university and community college in the Tampa area.
She has served in leadership positions with various Chambers of Commerce and has received many awards for her involvement in the community.

Now Lorraine broadcasts live with The A Game of Business!
