Here in Caron’s Corner, we have been extra busy chatting with some local businesses in Rochester! This winter season, we brought back our segment, “Fireside Chats,” where we invite lifestyle, food, and other goods/service companies to sit down with us and learn more about them! There is something so special about chatting with these local business owners who truly know how amazing our city and the people in it are.
Thus far, we have brought in three different businesses and sat by the television fire for a recorded, candid conversation where we ask how they got started, what advice they may have for others, any fun or inspiring stories, and what ‘community’ means to them. It is important to us that we shine a spotlight on these businesses and learn about the people behind the scenes.
For the first video, Episode 13, we brought in Jenny Brown from Everybody by Dutton Farm and Shelly Propson Tyshka from Paint a Miracle. These individuals are inspiring and do something special each day.
