This week on Business Over Beer, we welcome Lindsey Charlet, Founder and CEO visual design and content strategy studio, HUB Collective.
After 13 years in business, Lindsey and her team decided to walk away from their largest client, and more than three quarters of their existing business, in order to focus on the doing the work they wanted to do. Although that decision could have been catastrophic, it has instead propelled her and the agency to success doing what they love, doing what they are best at and making a difference for the clients and communities they serve.
Lindsey is a great speaker, she’s fun and funny and is the perfect combination of self confidence and self deprecation. But make no mistake, once her lady balls get swinging, get out of the way, because this bad ass business woman is making things happen.
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.
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.
This week on the second biggest podcast in the Pacific Northwest behind only the Sasquatch Hunters, we celebrate our 1 Year Anniversary, recorded at Hopworks Urban Brewery, the Birthplace of The BOB, with Founder and Head Brewmaster, Christian Ettinger.
Christian has been brewing beer for over 25 years and first experienced the brewpub as the center of the community while living abroad in Cologne Germany. Upon returning to the U.S., as the craft beer scene was exploding here in the Pacific Northwest, Christian knew by the age of 19 that he wanted to start this business. Combining the European style brewpub experience with the more modern craft brewing approach, Hopworks Urban Brewery opened in Portland, OR in 2007. We already knew going into this episode that we loved Hopworks, and we were pleasantly surprised that Christian shares our love of quoting Seinfeld and movies, hope you have as much fun listening as we did recording.
This week on The Business Over Beer Podcast, we welcome Life & Business Strategist, Lindsey T. H. Jackson. She shares how she started a dance and theatre troupe in Galway Ireland, which became a catapult for everything she’s doing now as CEO of LTHJ Global, an organization committed to creating tools, resources and programs around the limitations that hold us back from reaching our highest potential as individuals and in our school systems, workplaces and community groups.
