Learning Center currently maintains an active partnership with Jim Blasingame's Small Business Advocate (www.smallbusinessadvocate.com), resulting among other things in periodic multi-market radio collaboration. This year, Jim won the Small Business Administration's national award for "outstanding contribution to small businesses in the United States." He is the author of the current book Small Business Is Like A Bunch Of Bananas. His shows are eclectic, practical, accurate and entertaining.

Dr. Ciancutti periodically appears on other shows, both California and nationally based, and is frequently quoted in newspapers and magazines nation-wide on a pantheon of subjects, ranging from layoffs and desk rage to building accountability internationally.
