    In this episode, we chat with Jennifer Tober, the founder and artistic director of Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks.
     
    We haven't had any guests who have started and run businesses focused on creative and the arts, so we are excited to be bringing you some new insights and ideas.
     
    Also, if you are in the Pittsburgh area during September, check out Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks' production of A Midsummer Night's Dream!

    We talk to entrepreneurs and small business owners, so of course it was definitely time to get Dave in the hot seat. 
    In this episode, our host, Dave Villiotti, becomes the guest, and his wife (and Villiotti & Associates COO), Alicia Villiotti is the host. Enjoy this insightful twist!

    Today we talk with Jesse Mikec from Safe.Right.Fast. This is probably the most fun that we have had recording an episode - be prepared to laugh and sometimes wonder what we are talking about, but also to learn some great things about the rollercoaster that is starting your own business. 

    OH, and a disclaimer - we have come to the conclusion that it is the foxes burrowing that ruins the vines, which also means that the bunnies wouldn't be any better...but we are definitely not sure about the science of any of this. If you have insight, let us know!
