Small Business Spotlight of the Week: MyCorporation

Amanda | September 19th, 2012

Let’s face it: most of us are rubbish at knowing what’s going on when it comes filing legal documents. You tell us to file our taxes and we respond with TurboTax. We’re not well-versed on the process, what forms need to be filed, when and where said forms should be filed, and what the expense could […]

Amanda | September 5th, 2012

If you live in a large, tourist destination or if you’ve even take a trip to, well, anywhere, something quickly becomes apparent: there is a huge divide between locals and those just visiting.  It’s clothing, it’s language, it’s demeanor, and it’s very pervasive.  Whether you’re walking down the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, buying a sandwich […]

Well, the time has come.  The sun is setting earlier and earlier; kids are filtering back into school; summer is ending.  And while many of us are looking forward to finding our flannels and getting ourselves to an apple orchard, the end of summer is always bittersweet.

Small Business Spotlight of the Week: Good Migrations

Amanda | August 22nd, 2012

Let’s not mince words here: moving abroad is rough, rough stuff.  After someone finds their House Hunters International perfect home, they are faced with packing up their stuff and trusting strangers– who may or may not speak their language– to ship it safely half-way across the globe. As the founders of this week’s Small Business […]

Small Business Spotlight of the Week: Orazure Hand Roasted Coffee

Amanda | August 15th, 2012

I recently got back from a cross-country road trip where I drove from Chicago to Portland, OR. Besides putting nearly 5,000 miles on our rental car, my travel companion and I also became connoisseurs of gas station coffee.  We became well-versed in the difference between “pot has been sitting here since yesterday, “tastes like dirty […]

Small Business Spotlight of the Week: French Truck Coffee

Amanda | July 11th, 2012

There’s a particular love that beverages can inspire in people– I’m sure winos, beer aficionados, and Diet Coke heads can feel me on this one– it’s part deep appreciation, part comfort, and a huge part ritual.  It’s the snap of the can tab breaking, or watching the head lace on the side of the glass, […]
