Real Estate Rock Star Donald Griffin

Have you ever bought a house? I remember the first time I did. It was a really beat up bungalow but it had great old bones. I fell in love immediately even though I probably shouldn’t have. The one thing I didn’t do, that I really should have, is hire a realtor. They probably would have noted that the basement was leaky and flooded every time it rained, or that the bathroom was actually...

Helping Bulls Thrive in China Shops

There are a lot of terms that could define entrepreneurship: Risky, busy, confusing, overwhelming, fun, inspiring, and on and on. Starting and growing your own business is one of the most challenging adventures a person can go on. But there’s another word used a lot to describe owning a business and that’s lonely.

The metaphor that...

The Story of Green Funeral Pioneer Esmerelda Kent

The Story of Green Funeral Pioneer Esmeralda Kent There are some jobs it seems no one would ever want. Who actually wants to pump a septic tank, for instance?

Writer & Director Paul Shoulberg

There are jobs you simply do, that’s what most of us have, and there are creative passions that turn out to make you a few bucks, which very few are lucky enough to succeed at. One way to gauge the difference is the perception of children.  If, as a child you heard of an occupation and immediately felt you would rather eat raw spinach with no ranch dressing while sitting in the adult church...

The Uptown Cafe – Michael Cassady’s 40 Year Painting

LISTEN HERE: There are some businesses that are integral in the fabric and story of a community. Think about the town you live in.  If someone asks, “What are some things I HAVE to do when I visit?” you immediately think of them.  Maybe the dive bar in that back alley, an ice cream shop that has handmade old-fashioned vanilla but you have to specifically ask for it, a barber shop...
