At the start of 2016, we were invited to our local independent radio station, OHM Radio to talk taking a leap of faith into running a small business. We were joined by Charleston small-business owners Shantel Gadsden of Pink Verbena, and Kate DeWitt of Lowcountry Street Grocery. Lowcountry Local First's director of marketing Jordan Amaker warmly led the discussion.
Jordan begins the segment with a recent study from the Kauffman Foundation on the impacts of small businesses on job creation. Turns out, small businesses are the fuel that keeps our local economy thriving. Yeah!
Listen to the interview for three stories of three very different local businesses. We were honored to be included amongst these innovative business minds – and hearts.
