Hey there, friends! I’ve teased this news before but, I’m excited to announce I have officially launched my latest venture: Just Another Biz Podcast. You may recall my previous podcast, The Local Table, where I chatted with business owners across a variety of expertise. Creating that podcast was a long-term goal of mine and I couldn’t be prouder of it! 

However, I wanted to find a way to continue the conversation I started with The Local Table but with an additional viewpoint. So I approached my good friend and fellow wedding planner, Gabby Pinkerton, about doing a joint podcast, I knew it was the prefect transition. And that is how Just Another Biz Podcast was born! 

What is “Just Another Biz”?

Despite what the name implies, we wanted this podcast to be anything other than “just another business podcast”. We wanted this platform to tackle non-traditional business topics in additional to sharing our advice + journey through entrepreneurship. We’ll have relatable guests join us from all different industries and expertise discussing their own struggles and achievements. Because we truly believe there is enough room at the table for everyone, no matter what stage of business you’re in, you can learn something here. And we’re not about gatekeeping secrets! 

Meet Your Podcast Hosts!
