50 State Tour

September 18, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about his 50 state tour.

Hey folks, Shawn here with you. Some people may be noticing my 50 state tour of business. I’m getting a lot of questions about what’s it about, what does it do? So if you go to, you will see the very basics there. We are looking for exceptional companies from coast to coast in the United States, and maybe even one or two outside of the US, we can tweak that a little bit. But, we’re looking for companies that are doing something great in four categories, and we’re going to interview at least one in every state from these four categories.

# 1 Women in Business. We’re looking for a business that has embraced women in business. The business is either owned by women and doing something unique or embraces women in business to do more.

# 2 Empowerment through Entrepreneurship. A business that is empowering employees and doing something unique and different by using entrepreneurial techniques and ideas to do more and to accomplish great things.

# 3 Continuity planning. I’m looking for businesses that have put a plan in place to continue beyond the life of the current owner, to do something more, to do something unique and different

# 4 Partnerships. We’re also looking for a leading business that’s doing something in a partnership area. Bringing unique skills together, building a really strong and powerful partnership.

So I’m asking you for your help. I want nominations nationwide of companies who are doing great things in these four categories. Who do you know that’s doing these things? Think a little bit. Think about your friend, think about their business. They would love the exposure of getting picked up by McBride for Business, being put in our blog, podcast, interviews, media exposure. It’s going to be a great opportunity. So, we’re looking for those businesses.

So, jump on the 50 state tour, if you’re not following it, follow it and learn about it. You’re going to see great lessons. We’re bringing together themes of what’s going right in America. We’ve already talked to some very interesting companies, we’ve got more coming up, it’s going to be a lot of fun, jump in, and be a part of it.
