Alex Brookings, of bGood ( talks about the power of short interactions to grow customers and build culture.

I met Alex as a happy customer of bGood a few years ago.  In a fast world, they not only deliver delicious farm-to-table food for lunch and dinner, they create extraordinary and memorable service experiences with their customers.

Given my passion around the power of one or two minutes to create positive change, I wanted to learn about the bGood formula and design behind the experience.

Every time I walk into their restaurant, I leave with a smile and an even better disposition. Alex shares a few of his secrets.

What do International Pro Basketball and Community Business Building have in common?  Nik Caner-Medley.

You may know Nik Caner-Medley as a former star basketball player at Deering High School or the University of Maryland. Most recently, he has signed a 2-year contract with Movistar Estudiantes in Madrid Spain. What you may not know, is that Nik is a business and community-builder in Portland, Maine.

We recorded this show in the Boardroom at Cloudport Coworking Multi-space, while Nik is here for the summer. He is the owner and developer.

Co-working and multi-space environments have captured my attention as a business owner in recent years. The opportunities for greater collaboration in the community and improved blending of work and life are tremendous and inspiring.  

In more than 20 years of office-working, this has been the most supportive and motivating environment I have experienced. There are better ways of working and I hope you enjoy the conversation.
