Hosted by WCBS Bloomberg Business Anchor Joe Connolly, the program will also include ideas on how to get large companies as clients or partners and how to get more attention for your business. Whatever is new and working for others is sure to come up.

- Missy Tanen is a former teacher from Chatham, NJ. When she couldn’t find the quality sheets she wanted at the local mall a few years back, it gave her an idea for an online business. She and her husband operate the very successful BollandBranch.com luxury linen company.
