Armed with noise canceling headphones and many ounces of coffee, Carissa Broadbent invests more time at local coffee shops than I do. Every day I was at Pink Bean in Somerset, so was Carissa...punching away at her laptop's keyboard. A tall coffee and a tall stack of papers, I thought she was a screenwriter. I wasn't too far off. When Carissa told m…
 
There's a new trend of community based businesses starting on the South Coast and I'm here for it. While a global pandemic doesn't scream "time to start a business" that's exactly what Amanda Alcaidinho did. While growing her own line of skincare products, the idea of a local marketplace shop, 3genlove.com bubbled up into existence. The name comes …
 
The last two years of humanity has thrust the value of strong leadership into the spotlight. It’s easy to play armchair quarterback. On national level issues, and I’m guilty of it myself, we all become experts on a particular topic derived from our own opinions or self-belief. On a local level? Well…have fun fighting that Facebook post argument. Th…
 
What a difference 3 years and a global pandemic makes. Graduating from eForall some 4 years ago with a new product idea that few individuals would find success in, let alone on the South Coast, Kevin Rose is rapidly cementing a legacy. Running a business wasn't foreign to him. What would be the challenge? Running a trucking company when the world s…
 
One of the greatest opportunities we have as business owners on the South Coast is to co-promote, brand, and create content. If there's one thing COVID taught us (okay there's many, but…), its that we need to keep awareness and communications going for our brands to survive. Over the last year and a half it came in the form of online through our we…
 
The Arts… Art-going…heck, an art gallery…wasn't something that was ever on my radar growing up, even with an artist as a neighbor. Referring to myself as an artist…for doing a podcast? Not a chance. However, you put me on a busy street corner with a lemondade stand, and I'll turn it into a franchise. So maybe artists feel like they aren't business …
 
It was June of 2020 when I interviewed Brandan Burke, co-founder number 1 of 3 of what’s known today as SRVHUB. Brandan & team were not only knee-deep in finding a new brand name for the company, going through the intense EforAll accelerator, trying to build a mobile app, and make sense of the greatest thing on all of our minds — a global pandemic.…
 
Putting the global pandemic aside, which I know isn’t easy, I feel the South Coast has felt a certain resurgence — allure even — to the entrepreneur. As you’ll learn today, it’s not like the South Coast is new to budding businesses and market makers. You’re looking at a region that was once home to the world’s textile manufacturing industry along s…
 
Nothing is going to stand in the way of today's guest from achieving the success that he's after. Not COVID, not politics, and certainly not from a lack of hustle. In a time where you might be hard pressed to figure out how to bring people physically together to enrich their cultural, artistic, and business lives -- Peter Walker knows how to do it.…
 
If you had a business building crystal ball and it told you that a global pandemic was about to hit right before launching your business, you'd be crazy to keep going. Especially if you were launching business around in-person babysitting, where your employees and customers were connecting in a home. The blessing in disguise for today's guest, Jenn…
 
The global pandemic has had a major impact on many small businesses within the shallow pokckets of communities around the country. Small business owners have scrambled to get themselves online and use social media to blast out their message on the “new normal” work hours they’re operating from. A literal battle cry for survival while cutting and do…
 
Today's guest is Justine Crowley of Herbal Athlete, a new tea company looking to define a new segment for athletes here on the South Coast. As someone addicted to coffee, I sink back into my chair a lot in this episode -- I suppose you might, too. Caffeine aside, I had a great time learning what Justine is doing and how she's marketing + distrubuti…

I'm always fascinted when talking to somone at the intersection of art and entrepreneurship. Tune in to today's episode to hear how Drew started this "poster business" an…

We're diving deep into the mind of a creative business owner and how we handle selling value for our respective crafts. It was a fun episode, I hope you learn a lot from Samantha's experience. If you…

Brandan Burke is the CEO of B.B. Cuts, a company aimed at creating an on-demand app for beauty & barber services. Think of GotChew (or Lyft) for your hair needs, delivered to your work or home. Enrolled in the Summer cohort of EforAll, Brandan and his team are looking forward to the all of exciting milestones ahead. For a We Are Here first, we’ll h…
 
Today we’re joined by Suzanne Ramos, Business Technology Instructor at Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School. I met Suzanne through the SouthCoast Emerging Leaders ceremony last year as one of the award recipients. Aside from the many job titles she holds around the Fall River area, I was really excited to talk to her about her efforts co…
 
Today we're chatting about goal setting & accountability for the new year. Don't measure the wrong results or give up too soon on the big changes you're making starting on New Year's day. Give your plan some time and really invest in the long haul to see it through. Also, if you're looking to join a great group supporting each other's content marke…
