ActionCOACH – Business Inspires

How do you effectively work from home? From the business perspective, it’s about accountability. Employee perspective, it’s about balance of work and family within your home. We had Peg Buehrle and Michelle Calcasola from ActionCOACH on for this episode because of their insights on how they help businesses see opportunities, rather than doom and gloom, during economic downturns. The business community as a whole is experiencing this now during the COVID-19 pandemic.

What is imperative right now is for business owners to focus on the future. From the “essential businesses” perspective, there is still cash flow, but is still a stressful time. You still have employees, but you have to keep them safe. Why continue being a chamber member? You’re not alone, it is community. Plus, there may be chamber resources at your fingertips that you never realized were as valuable as they are right now.

Edgework Creative – Business Inspires

The business raised $25,000 through Kickstarter in 2015 toward the expansion and spent last year shopping for space until it landed on the Edgehill spot near Grandview Yard.

After kicking around a few possibilities Lindsay Remley and husband/co-owner/co-founder Alex Remley centered on Edgework Creative. She said the multiple meanings of edge – literal edge work that is done in the shop, pushing the edges, even the street name of Edgehill – felt like a natural fit. The creative part speaks for itself.
