New to The Street Leadership Series Announces Its Interviews of Two Business Leaders, Matt Higgins and Ray Titus; Show Airs on Bloomberg TV as Sponsored Programming on Saturday, December 30, 2023, at 6:30 PM ET

NEW YORK, Dec. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FMW Media Works Corp's "New to The Street Leadership" show, powered by Sector SPDR ETFs, airs on Bloomberg TV as sponsored programming on Saturday, December 30, 2023, at 6:30 PM ET.

Executive Coach, Media Personality, and Author Matt Doherty and business TV Host Jane King, who co-hosts the show, welcome two (2) business guests who share their extraordinary leadership experiences:

1). Matt Higgins, CEO/Co-Founder of RSE Ventures, Inc., and the Author of "Burn The Boats."
2). Ray Titus, CEO of United Franchise Group, Inc.

Co-hosts Matt Doherty and Jane King welcome Matt Higgins, Chief Executive Officer/Co-Founder of RSE Venture, Inc., to the New to The Street Leadership show. Matt is a successful investor, educator, operator, executive, and author. Growing up in extreme poverty on the streets in Queens, New York, with little to no food and money, Matt shares his history and how he overcame enormous challenges to become a successful businessman and author. After dropping out of high school to care for his sick single mother, Matt, with determination, overcame his existing circumstances to better himself and his family. With determination, self-will, and instinct, he took a 10-year journey, getting his GED, entering law school, and becoming the youngest New York City Press Secretary. Matt managed the communications for the city during and after the 9/11 attacks. He became an executive for two NFL teams, has appeared on the "Shark Tank" business show, and is the CEO of RSE Ventures. His book, "Burn The Boats," is written to inspire people, motivate them to achieve their dreams, and help people overcome doubt and fears. Matt shares with Co-hosts Matt and Jane that the book's title is a translation from a Chinese proverb and is a tattoo in Chinese on his upper arm to remind him of his successful journey. The book promotes planning, overcoming doubt, and compounding experiences to achieve success, and its title is appropriate because if you eliminate an escape plan, you have no choice but to proceed with hopeful success. His Company, RSE Ventures, is a private investment capital firm looking to fund visionaries with great ideas/innovations and help those individuals/entities become mainstream brands. Matt says that the best inventions/ideas come from a "Gut Sandwich," something someone knows for sure can work without complex data and spreadsheets; great insight to "GO FOR IT!" Matt provides scholarship opportunities for single mothers to pursue higher education quests, and he enjoys hearing from people whose lives have considerably changed from reading "Burn the Boats." Matt is a positive and outgoing leader with a mission to serve and inspire others from his personal experiences and successes.

From the Nasdaq MarketSite Studio, Ray Titus, Chief Executive Officer of United Franchise Group, Inc. ("UFG"), sits with New to The Street Leadership Co-hosts Matt Doherty and Jane King. With over 35 years in business, UFG offers ten franchises in 1600 locations in over 80 countries. Ray talks about his journey from a young age, understanding entrepreneurism from within his family. Ray's father, franchising legend Roy Titus, started and successfully franchised "Minuteman Press," a recognized print and signage service company. His business acumen is so entrenched he wrote a paper in 8th grade about how to start a franchise business. As a basketball player and coach, Ray saw that sports and businesses have some commonalities in achieving success: work hard, show up early, leave late, and work with the team. Making goals and meeting those goals inspires Ray, and he shares his goals with his other executives and employees at UFG. Listening and asking questions helps Ray understand his franchisees' ongoing operations and can help promote better business practices to share with other franchise owners. Mistakes can happen, but don't let the fear of failing limit yourself; take the chance and move forward with your goals. Even if the first attempt failed, Ray says to continue learning from the experience and applying it to the next business operation. Franchise owners need to understand they represent a brand, and their individual decisions can affect other franchise owners. Ray likes to communicate often with franchise owners, so everyone is working to succeed together. Hiring his father-in-law years ago was one of the best decisions of his career. The man became his mentor, shaping his leadership skills. Hire the right talent. Too often, business owners hire the wrong people and hold on to those people longer than necessary. A good leader must see and handle weaknesses and react accordingly to move operations forward. Technology and other innovations can assist in ongoing operations. Don't fear change; embrace it and make it work for you. Ray explains to Matt and Jane that moving the Company out of Long Island, NY, to Florida was a good decision because it removed him from the shadows of others so he could make decisions without external input. When Ray is ready to retire, he won't pass the ball to just one person but to many; he sees more opportunities and growth verticals with more figurehead involvement. Getting information and not being in a rush, listening, delegating effectively, and making comprehensive decisions are all part of Ray's leadership qualities that he shares with viewers. Recognized domestically and internationally as a successful and positive leader, Ray continues to assist many in successful franchise ownership.
