This week, Michelle and Emily record at Perkolator Coffee in Portage Park. Michelle signs up for a set of small business "starter kits," which - weirdly enough - came from Girlboss.com. (You might remember one of our very first episodes, Episode 5: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is Not a Girl Boss)... We nitpick several "articles," learn about emoji usage on Venmo and ultimately decide that "millenial" is a bullshit term that everyone should really stop using.
This week, Michelle and Emily record the 50th Episode of Pancake Town the Podcast! They talk about the idea of Community over Competition, and each shout out a few of their favorite designers and business owners.
In this week's episode, Michelle and Emily have breakfast at Alps Pancake House (where Pancake Town's name came from)! They talk about rejection, customer disappointment, taking things too personally in business... and not taking things personally enough.
We're back! After a little post-birthday break, Michelle and Emily are excited to welcome special guest Amber Favorite of A.Favorite Design for an on-location episode at Nighthawk in Albany Park. Amber gives us the behind-the-scenes of relocating her design studio and creating a community letterpress space, all with the help of a Kickstarter campaign. Get some tips and tricks for launching your own Kickstarter (big or small) and learn how you can support Amber's amazing project!
It's our ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY Episode!!! Recorded LIVE at Lillstreet Art Center's West Wing Drawing Studio, Michelle and Emily welcome an awesome group of Pancake Town listeners to talk about mixing politics and business... and eat cake!
