SCORE Greater Cincinnati is leveraging its base of 100 business mentors and hundreds of clients to share stories about what it takes to be successful, obstacles conquered, frustrations overcame and the joy of owning a business.
My Cincy Small Business Story will be hosted by SCORE marketing committee chair Michael Dawson. Dawson retired as vice president for marketing and public relations at the Cincinnati Better Business Bureau in 2021. He has been volunteering for SCORE in addition to traveling and spending time with his family.
Episode 1 guests are Aclipse Campervans Co-owners Sofia Mimendi and Emily Bruns. The pair discuss “keeping the tank full,” juggling their business, travel and family with their entrepreneurial journey.
New episodes of My Cincy Small Business Story will be produced twice monthly by Joe Strecker Productions and Signal Tree Creative Communications, two small businesses that have benefited from SCORE mentorship. The show is available on all major podcast platforms.
