We opened the show with Trey Humphreys, one of the founders of the Fur Bus. The Fur Bus is a lounge-like setting full of magical lights, a thundering sound system and of course, fantastic fur. They provide transportation for all occasions including business outings, staff parties, sporting events, concerts, birthdays, weddings, proms, children’s parties, bachelor and bachelorette parties. The Fur Bus has been featured on MTV, Blind Date, Howard Stern Show, Nickelodeon, Elimindate and My Sweet 16. The busses are rented by the hour and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The atmosphere and interior of the Fur Bus is designed to bring people together to have an incredible time. Take the ordinary out of your transportation and ride The Fur Bus for an extraordinary experience. You've probably seen one of the Fur Buses rolling around 285. It is the bus with the kids dancing, singing as they ride in style to their event. They have buses that hold parties of 14-30 passengers. Remember to book early because once you've rode the Fur Bus you can't stop. Trey explained that he has grown his business exclusively through word of mouth referrals and stellar customer service and he has grand plans on expanding his Fur Bus empire.

Next we had on Bob Littell with Littell Consulting Services, Second Opinion Insurance Services, and The Enrichment Company where he carries the title of Chief NetWeaver. Although he wears a number of hats within the financial services industry ranging from broker and second opinion fee-paid advisor to business owners and high net worth individuals, as well to insurance companies and financial institutions, Bob's primary passion these days revolves around a word and concept he created almost a decade ago - "NetWeaving”.
Bob"s 2nd book, “The Heart and Art of NetWeaving”, picks up where the first book, “Power NetWeaving”, left off and covers many of the practical appli-cations of NetWeaving - being a connector OF others, and a 'no-strings-attached’ resource provider TO others – simply with the belief that, what goes around, does come back around.
The “Heart and Art of NetWeaving” book also explains how those who become NetWeaving Ambassadors, and who spread the word about this ‘win-win’ form of networking, find it not only elevates their own image in the eyes of others, but they also derive a form of energy which pours over into everything else they do.
Thanks to a generous contribution from Xerox Global Services who covered the cost of printing “The Heart and Art of NetWeaving”, Bob donates 100% of the $20 per book sales price either to the Pay It Forward Foundation, created by Catherine Ryan Hyde – author of the book on which the popular movie was based, or to any non-profit who wishes to use the book for fund-raising purposes. Bob also serves on the Board of the Pay It Forward Foundation and co-chairs the steering committee.
Bob’s latest book, “Raising Your R&R Factor – How Referable & Recommendable Are You?” introduces the ‘irrefutable’ “NetWeaver’s Law of Referral Reciprocity”. It helps explain why those who genuinely NetWeave for others, and yet don’t see much if anything come back around, need to look in the mirror to analyze how others actually perceive them – since referrals and recommendations represent a ‘risk’ on the part of the person making them. To help persons deal with this, Bob also conducts “WOW Workshops” to help people discover ways to be more creative and innovative, as well as to differentiate themselves and make themselves more remarkable.
