    S4E12 Building Your Brand

    E3 - Energy and Efficiency with Emily is all about building science, architecture, and female entrepreneurship: To end a wonderful year of podcasts and guests, I invited Emily Soccorsy to join me for our final episode. Emily, with Root+River caught my attention in November at the Entrepreneur Architect Annual Meeting. Her delivery of brand strategy felt so aligned with how I answer questions about building a business around Pretty Good House principles that I couldn't resist having her on the podcast to tell me more and share with you. How she helps her clients build better brands resonated with me as the same way I help my clients build better homes. So I hope this episode really motivates you to connect yourself to your brand in 2023. I'll "see" you in January, until then ~ Stay Nerdy ~ Emily

    E3 - Energy and Efficiency with Emily is all about building science, architecture, and female entrepreneurship: Season 4: E3 - Energy and Efficiency with Emily is all about building science, architecture, and female entrepreneurship: Season 4: This month I had the opportunity to sit down with the sustainability department at LP and talk building products. As an architect, we specify a lot of products. As a building science enthusiast, people often ask me about products and what I specify. And if you know me at all, you know that the answer is “it depends”. This is not a sponsored post, just an opportunity to talk to LP about their products, their commitment to EPD’s and the environment, and maybe answer a few questions that some of you might have. Enjoy ~ Emily

We are having a book launch party on BS+Beer Thursday night, so I hope you’ll join us. In the mean time: pop over and check out what Caroline Blavovsky has been up to and send me your questions for when I have a chance to interview her later this year.

Could be better

The host talks too much compared to the guests. My only critique. Good podcast topics
