It isn’t every day that you wake up one morning and say to yourself, “I think I’ll start a radio show.” Yet this is exactly what Arron Grow did last summer when he started Personal Best Radio. “On the show I help people set and achieve physical, financial, business, and relationship goals,” Grow says. “The show idea was a natural extension of the work my group does with organizations.” The group he is speaking of is A.P. Grow and Associates, (www.apgrow.com) a firm that provides organizational development training across the country. “In our business, my associates and I help whole companies achieve their goals. We felt it was time to do this same thing for individuals. Helping individuals grow personally has always been a passion of mine so when the opportunity came up, the step felt very natural.”
Though Dr. Grow is new to radio, he’s no stranger to communications. Before starting A.P. Grow and Associates, Grow worked at Microsoft first as a member of MSN’s Training and Support team and then as an International Program Manager. Before this, he was in charge of university-based international programs. He picked up Mandarin Chinese while working for a time in Taiwan. His expertise in management, achievement, and helping organizations access minority markets stems from this background. He spends much of his time now as a keynote speaker on these topics.
When asked what he enjoys most about hosting the show, Grow says, “The people; without a doubt it’s the people I meet. Sponsors of the show, local community members who support our mission, national best selling authors that I interview ‚Äì it’s truly energizing to meet and work with so many great people. It’s a lot of fun and I believe that fun is reflected on the show.”
