Episode 42: Mad Tree Brewing Company

June 15th, 2014

Psychopathy, Lift, Happy Amber, Identity Crisis and Galaxy High.  No, these are not names of new mood disorders. They're what you'll find on tap at 5164 Kennedy Avenue home to Mad Tree Brewing Company. Ohio's first craft brewery to can their beers in the modern age.  Don't let the Duck Dynasty beards and pun-ny titles fool you.  These guys are mad geniuses concocting fresh blends of fermented sugar derived from saccharified starch by day and pulling pints by night.  You don't need to be a beer connoisseur to pull up a stool and enjoy a cold one, but you do need opposable thumbs.  Cheers.

Episode 41: Pure Romance

June 8th, 2014

In the beginning there was a boy and his mother selling sex toys out of a U-haul truck.  Today the letters of the company name are 4 feet tall and hang from a new building in downtown Cincinnati.  A happy ending so to speak. But the ending is just the beginning.  Chris Cicchenelli and his mother, Patty Brisben are spreading the joy, (no pun intended) to other women.  Pure Romance has taken the MLM model to promote freedom for women and not just in the bedroom.  If you're stuck in a rut, want to make some money, need a flexible schedule and want to do something meaningful for others (that's most of us, isn't it?). Tune in and find out if this might be the road to having your own business, without the U-haul truck.  Click HERE to find out more info on their website.

Episode 40: Brazee St. Studios and C-Link

June 1st, 2014

A sculptor, an entrepreneur, a restauranteur and a patron of the arts Sandy Gross is our favorite renaissance entrepreneur.  She co-founded Blue Manatee Book Store and Coffee Shop.  She started Brazee Street Studios, an art gallery and glass working studio.  She also recently opened the Sleepy Bee Cafe on Madison Ave in Oakley.  We could talk about the transformative powers of glass or the tile work in the Sleepy Bee restrooms, but this interview is about C-Link, an internet platform to connect those who love art with those who love making art.  Tune in.
