This week on Top of Mind, we sit down with Barnett Helzberg, Jr., former CEO of Helzberg Diamonds. Helzberg Diamonds has been a staple of Kansas City since Helzberg's grandfather opened the first one in 1915, and continues to be long after the chain was purchased by Warren Buffet and Berkshire Hathaway in 1995. Barnett talks about the obstacles faced during his entrepreneurial journey, and how the Kansas City community today has come to support entrepreneurship.
