036 Taking Over The Family Business & Lessons in Learning as you Go

Today we’re chatting with Carolyn Gummo from City Reviva, a vintage clothing shop in Prince Edward County.

Caroyln took over a family business with next to no formal business education and is navigating the journey one step at a time. Before we started recording, we chatted about impostor syndrome. Have you ever felt this?

You know that ‘who am I to be doing this’ or ‘what do I have to share that’s worthy’.

Carolyn literally said to me before the show that she wasn’t sure she was necessarily the right person for the show… but of course, I begged to differ. I am thrilled to be able to highlight someone who is pushing their comfort zones, learning along the path, and navigating the impostor syndrome each and every day.

023 The "Anything But Average" Approach of a Boutique Communications Agency Called Pineapple Collective

Visionaries Emma Andres & Lynsey Walker are the founders of a boutique communications agency called Pineapple Collective. The two of them came from career-backgrounds in education, sales and marketing within the natural health industry; and after years working for other top health brands, they decided to step out on their own, combine over 10+ years of experience, and launch Pineapple Collective.

Pineapple Collective is an agency unlike the others: their 'anything but average approach' is recognizable in everything they put their stamp on!

This interview is a true inspiration if you’ve ever wanted to explore how your passions and your business can beautifully flow together. I am so proud of what they have created in just a few short years, and can't wait for everyone to get a taste of Pineapple in their mouth (or ears?)!

Parson's Brewery is Creating a Community Hub around their Passion for Craft Beer

Today on the show we are chatting with Samantha from Parson’s Brewery.

Samantha and her husband Chris didn’t always live in the county or have a business in beer. In fact, much of their lives were spent living in Toronto, Ontario where Chris had a career in banking and Samantha had an advertising role with Telus Communications.

Chris began brewing beers in their garage with a single 50 liter tank - and upon receiving rave reviews from thirsty friends - the business of brewing organically started to grow.

Today, Chris & Samantha have moved their life to a beautiful property just outside of Prince Edward County and have opened an adjacent brewhouse, bottle shop and community hub in a restored barn-house.

Dave and I had the chance to sip on 4 of their beers and I can truly say that they are some of the best brews we have ever tasted.
