Tony Gambone, the founder and creator of Tough Talk Radio Network. He spent a significant number of his adult years working the casino business in Las Vegas, Nevada along with Louisiana, Mississippi, and other states where gambling is legal. To save his life and his marriage, Tony moved to Katy,Texas in 1998 where he became an entrepreneur by starting his own remodeling business.
After owning a successful remodeling company for several years, in 2009 Tony’s health required that he take another look at his career plans. He left the hard, physical work of the construction business to become a “tough talking” business person. He and his wife Wendy began speaking about and selling professional services. Explaining to others how to follow his lead, Tony became involved in the networking industry in the greater Houston/Katy area. His tough style and generous spirit quickly garnered recognition in competitive arena.
To further promote his business and the people he met in the networking world, Tony saw an opportunity for expansion in the world of Internet radio. His “tough talking” style draws from his guests their origins, motivations, goals, and differentiators. He found that marketing his guests this way allows him to build their knowledge, personality and trust, separating them from their competition.
From hosting his own radio show, Tough Talk with Tony Gambone, being the “tough talking” generous person that he is, Tony Gambone formed the Tough Talk Radio Network, a company that provides similar opportunities for other entrepreneurs to grow their business by hosting their own Internet Radio Show. Tony teaches them to become a “Thought Leader” in their industry and provides everything a Radio Host needs to market and promote their shows.
