HICKORY — Catawba Valley Community College Small Business Center Director Jeff Neuville and Executive Dean of Economic Development Gary Muller recently reached a milestone — hosting their 100th Entrepreneur Exchange podcast for The MESH podcast network, which is part of Jackson Creative.

The Entrepreneur Exchange is a monthly podcast about start-ups and small business with tips and tools for listeners to operate their business more effectively.

“We’ve had a fun time,” Neuville said. “It’s a great way to share advice for starting and operating a business, and we’ve had the chance to talk with a lot of interesting people involved in starting businesses.”

Monthly guests have ranged from the current North Carolina Community College President Thomas Stith to the first winner of the TV show “Survivor” Richard Hatch to many small business owners and subject matter experts.

At the end of each episode, Neuville and Muller share local or unique small businesses that they have come across online or in their travels.
