Of all the startups that Ron accumulated throughout his career, which was the most important to him? As he has said many times, it would be his family, his wife, Karen, his son Jaxon and his daughter, Lexi. Today, on the final broadcast of American Entrepreneur Radio, we revisit the first shows after the births of Jaxon and Lexi, where we can hear the real thoughts of a successful entrepreneur facing his biggest challenge yet: being a worthy father to his children. Finally, we end it where it all began, with a rebroadcast of his very first show, originally airing June 20, 1999. Plus, members of the American Entrepreneur Radio staff, as well as a surprise guest at the end of the show, share their thoughts about the end of American Entrepreneur Radio.
