Understanding Osborn

Osborn wasn’t a new neighborhood to me, I had met one of its community leaders, Quincy Jones, while working on the agenda for the Detroit Policy Conference. The theme of the conference was making Detroits neighborhoods strong, and Osborn wit help of their neighborhood and business association were doing just that. However Osborn still existed […]

The Art of Networking

Networking is the lifeblood of professional relationships. The vast majority of your interactions, projects, and successes in business will be the result of some form of networking.

What I Found on a Downtown Walkabout

I’m often asked how I know so much about what’s going on in Detroit, especially when it comes to new spots for food, drinks, or shopping.

Summer in the City- A Brief Guide to Enjoying Detroit (Part 1)

You’re probably talking about Corktown and it’s bustling few blocks of restaurants, bars, and all manner of businesses to serve it’s revitalized neighborhood and droves of suburbanites that flock there daily.

Building the Ultimate Detroit Holiday Feast

The holidays are a time for family, friends, and feigning interest in countless conversations with aunts and uncles. Most importantly however, it’s about the food. At the end of the day, the dinner table becomes the focal point of any holiday gathering and a well rounded smorgasbord can make or break an entire evening. For […]

Detroit’s Neighborhood Entrepreneurs Are About More Than Just Business

Willie Brake and Caleb Rutledge didn’t need a nudge, suggestion, or PR boost. They weren’t following anyone’s advice or applying what they read in a book. They were simply doing what came natural to them; being an active member of their community. Their efforts to give back came innately, neither can really explain what drove […]
