This week on Business Over Beer, we welcome Katie Augsburger back to the program. Katie started her business around the same time that she got divorced, which can be a tricky thing, especially for women whose feelings of security are built up in their relationship, combined with the narrative we have about what a woman’s role is. But Katie took the leap, she broke those feelings apart and realized that she could do big bold things. Now she is a successful employee experience strategist and Partner at Future Work Design, helping organizations to design a better workplace for all.
Welcome the first installment of Thirsty Thursday with The BOB!
Every Thursday we will be highlighting a beer, brewery, or tap house in the Vancouver area, along with a previous BOB podcast episode that corresponds with it. The goal of The BOB Thirsty Thursday is to spread some positive vibes and light to the people in the community, and sharing a couple of things things that make Vancouver great, particularly Craft Beer and Small Businesses. We can’t wait to share our experiences.
This week on the second biggest podcast in the Pacific Northwest behind only The Sasquatch Hunters, we welcome back esteemed Business Over Beer alumni, Bill Cohen of Cohen Caregiving Support Consultants, and Joey Yourchek of Elfin Services. Bill provides support to family caregivers of patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia and Elfin Services is a professional caregiving service offering, among other things, in home care to patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia. Alzheimer’s Disease remains a top 5 cause of death in the United States with no cure and no treatment, and mental health is becoming an increasingly more important issue for our overall health and wellness, especially in the time of COVID-19.
The goal of this Business Over Beer episode is to increase awareness of the seriousness of Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia and to keep mental health at the the forefront of health and wellness conversations. But we still manage to have a good time, even talking about heavy topics like this, and with Bill and Joey, it’s hard not to have a good time.
Business Over Beer will be donating a portion of our October Patreon proceeds to help fight Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia.
