Nothing but (Cable) Net for BTR’s Fran Harris

A big BlogTalkRadio gracias to Dr. Fran Harris for helping spread the word about web empowerment.

As a guest last week on CNBC’s The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, the Get Off Your Assets host told Donny:

“I love the Internet because it levels the playing field. I know 12-year-olds who are making thousands of dollars online, so if a12-year-old can do it, I can definitely do it.”

But Fran – a former WNBA star who played for the Houston Comets before founding Fran Harris Enterprises, which develops media and entertainment properties – didn’t stop there.

Without missing a beat, she swished with this pitch:

The Internet gives you the opportunity to have a global business 365 days a year. So if you’ve got information you want to get out, log on. You’ve got blogging, you’ve got everything you need to get that ultimate message out there.”

Check out Fran’s full interview.
