    Anything But Normal with Anna Dickinson of Perception

    Get in and hold on! This girl starts in Little Rock and hits the road for the West coast, Marries in a foreign land and is  dreaming of the destinations yet to come.  This is a ride you will enjoy and are willing to get back in line and ride again.  To say this girl is fun would not adequately describe her to the fullest.  We took some time to really get to know this lovely as she tells us about her,  what she believes in and how that influences her business.  With a pandemic starting to be behind us (fingers crossed) we will see how she is marching on and what she has done to make her life feel as good as it sounds.   She is present and transparent, a quality that is hard to find these days.  She wants life to be lived as it would be perceived.  Welcome to the Land of Anna Dickinson's Perception.

    Food Geeks! With Serge and Mary Krikorian of Vibrant Occasions

    You will fall in love with this food loving couple.  Serge and Mary Krikorian  just knew that they wanted to own their own business so they grabbed the only thing they could and turned it into the vibrant business they have today.  Listen in as they tell the how's and some of the how nots.  Business is something that involves risk taking and hope, they found a chance and poured risk taking and hope into it, truth is they have mastered that.  We will learn where the appreciation of a "family" of workers comes from.  We will learn that pouring over your craft/business is something you can do and still protect the delicate balance of family & work & free time.  ( well at least family and work ) Follow along and see what they have done in response to the pandemic, what things they have tried and what reactions they got. When faced with difficulties surrounding social distance regulations and mandates, they took action. This podcast is a time of learning what it takes to be a business owner and a story of standing up and using the voice we have as democratic Americans.  
    Serge and Mary Krikorin are the proud owners of Vibrant Occasions Catering, they happily serve Arkansas and beyond  with custom catering  and food offerings born from two culinary loving Food Geeks.

Must listen for anyone in a creative industry

No matter whether you’re in a wedding or event industry... This friendly and fun, in-depth and personal insight to so many artists and small business owners is motivating and inspirational! This platform gives the WHY behind an idea and the HOW for others to learn from... with a mix of having coffee with two encouraging and equally inspirational friends.
