Introducing The Panhandle! Podcast for Small Business and Entrepreneurs in Northwest Florida
Here is what we’re doing:
I am so excited to announce the latest in our community development efforts from all of us here at Adams Sanitation, a podcast called The Panhandle! With Crystal Boyles.
The Panhandle! Is going to be a place where we can talk about growing or starting a small business in Northwest Florida, being a woman in business, local government and how it affects entrepreneurship in both Okaloosa and Santa Rosa counties, and achieving a work-life balance for moms specifically and families in general.
We are going to have plenty of content to cover – as there are tens of thousands of small and medium sized businesses in the panhandle.
We (Christopher Saul, our Chief Marketing Officer over at Adams) and I want to make sure that we are getting to the topics that you want to hear! drop us a line at Christopher@adamssanitation.com if you have an idea for an episode!
This is What We Think You Will Get Out Of This Podcast
This podcast is geared toward small business owners, or people that want to start their small business, in the Florida Panhandle. We are going to have discussions with people who have successfully started their business in places like Pace, Fort Walton Beach, Crestview, Milton, Jay, Laurel Hill, Niceville, 30A, South Walton, Pensacola and beyond!
These guests will give you great insights on how to start, improve or take your business to the next level. Everything from hiring and firing to strategic planning and the little things in between. We want to make sure that you are a little more equipped to succeed! It isn’t all business; we want to have some fun too and can’t wait to highlight interesting people in and around our community.
Who Is Coming On The Podcast?
We have a wide variety of engaging local leaders and business owners who are already booked to come on the podcast. Here are just a few:
Want to get a small business loan to start your dream? Our first guest, Katie Sharon – ran one of the largest small business lenders in Fort Walton Beach with BBVA Compass. She’ll also talk about infrastructure projects to reduce traffic in Crestview and stop flooding in the south end of Okaloosa County and how she balances homeschooling her children and working from home.
Casey Kearney, a country musician from Holt will talk about ranching on the border between Santa Rosa and Okaloosa County, local rodeo life, making a Nashville record label, being invited to sing the National Anthem at an Atlanta Braves game, writing a book with her daughter, and overcoming roadblocks caused by being overworked and depressed.
Another episode features Sue McCool, owner of Niceville’s 3rd Planet Brewing. We’ll talk about how her husbands’ passion for home brewing became the most popular microbrewery to gather with friends in the city of Niceville – how she balances the business side of the brewery, including all the fun paperwork, withher many other commitments.We’ll probably have a couple of beers too!
