Episode #4: Jessie McCracken - Real Estate Agent Extraordinaire and Owner of YEGPro Realty
Jessie talks about what she did and does to build her own real estate business as well as how she bought YEGPro realty three years ago and has grown the brokerage from 5 agents to almost 70.
Episode #5: Jason Ritchie - Owner of Vanity Corner Hair Supply, The Refuge and the man behind Prairie Boys Supply Company
I sat down with one of my oldest friends in the world, Jason Ritchie, to discuss how he got into the hair business and then opened one of the coolest hair salons and barbershops in Edmonton.
We then discussed how he created his own product line, Prairie Boys Supply Co.
Jason is a marketing genius and a great guy.
Episode #6: Jessica Culo - Owner and President of Express Employment Professionals Edmonton
Jessica Culo has been killing it in YEG business since she was a young woman right out of college. Her 15+ years of experience with B2B Marketing, running a business in a volatile market, passion for being an entrepreneur and great advice for employees and employers alike, make this a great listen.
And if that doesn't help, I was hungover and in a silly mood when we talked, so that's kind of weird.
Episode #7: Nathan McLaughlin “The Man Behind the MEAT” - Co-owner of The Next Act Pub, MEAT and Pip
I had the pleasure of sitting down with my new friend, Nathan McLaughlin.
Nathan is one third of the ownership group behind three great restaurants in Edmonton, The Next Act Pub, MEAT and Pip (there's a 4th owner of Pip).
Nathan is one of the most talented chefs in Edmonton, which has helped make a winning formula for the "three dips," when it comes to opening a successful restaurant. It doesn't hurt that they are all great friends and wonderful people.
He was kind enough to share his story with me about how he went from a chef who was struggling with debt and his place in the industry, to become a very successful restauranteur in Edmonton. He's also a huge Oilers fan.
Go check out all three of their restaurants on 104th street, just North of Whyte Avenue. You won't be disappointed.
