Throughout my years in Eastern North Carolina, I've had the pleasure of working with the BBB serving Eastern North Carolina on several projects and campaigns. This organization is truly an asset to businesses and the community.
In April, the nonprofit's communications team reached out to me to see if I'd be interested in coming on an episode of the new "Brunch with BBB" podcast to talk about how COVID-19 is impacting the news industry. I was so honored and, of course, said yes!
The podcast's hosts, Luis and Catherine from BBB serving Eastern North Carolina, were so wonderful! We discussed news trends, small businesses, the housing sector, and nonprofits. I was so excited to share how some of my friends (and my husband) are adjusting their business services during this time. I also had the opportunity explain the current needs of the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina since I serve on the board of directors.
From this experience, I also learned that I'm a much better interviewer than interviewee! Ha! Seriously... I was so nervous and said "umm" a million times! Goodness gracious - I'm embarrassed! I think I'll keep asking questions rather than answering them.
I encourage you to check out the Brunch with BBB podcast as they add new episodes weekly. Luis and Catherine regularly feature special guests to inform business owners and consumers about current marketplace trends. Be sure to also follow BBB serving Eastern North Carolina on Facebook and Instagram for relevant and important consumer information, awareness campaigns, and scam warnings.
I hope you're all doing well! Continue staying healthy, safe, and positive!
