LIVE from the Hilinski‘s Hope Fundraiser at Taps Beer Reserve
On this episode of Business Over Beer, we’re live from Taps Beer Reserve in Ridgefield Washington for the 3rd annual Hilinski’s Hope Foundation Fundraiser.
Hilinski’s Hope was born out of tragedy when the Tyler Hilinski, then the quarterback of the Washington State University Football Team, took his own life. Hilinski’s Hope promotes awareness and education of mental health and wellness for student athletes all over the country. And now for the second straight year has organized college football mental health week with over 60 schools participating.
We were so happy to be part of this event hosted by our good friend Kevin Summers of Taps Beer Reserve, and amazing business owner who is doing so much for our community.
Also, October 10th is world mental health day and it is important that we continue to normalize the conversation around mental health, mental wellness and mental illness.
Business Over Beer Episode #89 with Tara Tinsley, Part 2
This week on Business Over Beer, Country Musician, Tara Tinsley, returns for part 2 of her interview.
In this episode, Tara talks about the evolution of her writing, how writing songs merely about pain and struggle no longer inspire her. Rather, she is writing about finding answers to the struggles and finding inspiration in the things that really matter in life. As a result, she is writing more Christian Music as a way to show gratitude for her life and to create music with messages of hope for her audience.
Entrepreneurship can definitely be a lonely road. For a long (long) time while you build a viable business, there are continual nagging questions of whether you’ve made the right choice and if the business will ever be successful.
Small Business Owners have to start somewhere
When we first get into small business ownership, we all want to believe that it is just going to take off, that customers will flock to us, and we will hit a home run right out of the gate. And while that is the case for some new small businesses, rationally of course, we know that’s not likely to happen. Ever heard the saying “it takes 20 years to become an overnight success?” That’s probably closer to the reality for most small business owners.
