Jim’s fabulous new Fried on Business website with Bekah Carlson 

 

About Our Guests

Bekah Carlson spent over a dozen years in corporate real estate marketing for an investment firm. Then she worked on side projects outside of that realm, from gaming to men’s underwear development to restaurant concept work, and discovered a passion for developing the strategy and marketing fundamentals that can grow all businesses.

Bekah is also an Illinois licensed real estate managing broker, past president of NICAR (the Northern Illinois Commercial Association of Realtors), and a frequent guest on the Fried on Business podcast.

 

Allen Kopelman Co-Founded Nationwide Payment Systems Inc. in 2001, with the plan to sell credit card processing services and equipment to merchants in the South Florida area and provide concierge style service for each client. Quickly the company grew to 1000 plus clients and had clients all over the United States.

The entrepreneurial bug started early in Allen’s life as he comes from a family of business owners and learned about business from an early age behind the cash registers at his fathers clothing stores in Miami.

Later he went to Culinary School in Atlanta and became a Chef, then Executive Chef for Metro Hotels in Dallas, Texas running food and beverage operations in Hotels. In 1992, he moved back to Florida and opened a restaurant catering company and consulting group.

After gaining a couple of years of experience selling merchant services, Allen Co-Founded Nationwide Payment Systems with David Burney. The company quickly grew and out of that growth became laser focused on technology that would help merchants, helping hard to place businesses that many banks did not want to work with.

About Our Guests:

I am Matthew Gold, better known as Med Matt. I am here to help you navigate the often confusing world of Medicare Supplements and Advantage plans, plus other insurance solutions. I will take the most complex components, terms and phrases and reduce them to bite size pieces. You will know exactly what your options are and how they work. I am here to give you the tools you need to get all your questions answered.

For me, this all began in 2012. I found myself looking for a new opportunity, changing my career in the mortgage industry for healthcare protection. As it turned out, a few years after my move, I had my own health issues that I had to deal with. This help me better understand what I needed to know as well as have a greater appreciation for healthcare insurance. Since then, my health is exceptionally good, my navigational skills through plans is spot on and I know, at a very personal level, the reasons why we all need insurance. Now you will too.
