Building Relationships with Brides to Be. How Natasha Marie bridal Leads. Local Leaders Podcast #123
From Natasha Marie Bridal's "About Me" Page. Natasha's life long dream has been to custom design wedding gowns, so for the first 7 years of Natasha Marie Bridal that is exactly what she did. From sketch to pattern to construction, she made a bride's dream of her perfect wedding gown a reality. But designing dresses is a very time consuming process, which made balancing family life and work a bit of a challenge. So she decided to rebrand Natasha Marie Bridal in to a bridal boutique.  ​          The store is located in the historic Denham Springs Antique Village. We interlaced the idea of something old with something new in a newly renovated building originally built in the 1930's that still holds it's historic charm. We proudly serve brides in Livingston Parish, the Greater Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. Our quaint store provides a comfortable, easy going, atmosphere with top notch personable service. We have hand selected top quality designer gowns at bridal market, each of which is either completely customizable or comes in numerous fabric and color options. This way we are still able to offer our brides the opportunity to make their gown unique to them. We also carry pre-wedding event clothing and accessories perfect for the bride's engagement party, bridal shower and bachelorette party. ​        Natasha has 12+ years of experience in the bridal industry and 20 years of sewing experience. She has a Fashion Design Degree from LSU's Apparel Design program, has interned with New Orleans couturier designer Suzanne Perron St. Paul, completed a fashion field study in China, designed for former First Lady of Louisiana Supriya Jindal, and donated a custom red gown for the American Heart Association, Baton Rouge Chapter.   We have a history of happy brides who have become friends over the process of their dress design. We vow to continue offering the same great service to our future brides.     Jim Chapman of Local Leaders the Podcast goes in depth with Natasha Miller to discover who this business women is, outside of her business. What he discovered is a woman that never lost sight of who she was and has stayed rooted in her community and has the support of those around her.  #BridalBoutique #Podcast #BusinessPodcast #Bridal #LocalLeadersthePodcast #LivingstonParish A must watch episode of Local Leaders:The Podcast!   Natasha Marie Bridal website: https://www.natashamariebridal.com  Natasha Marie Bridal Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NatashaMarieBridal  Vote for Natasha Marie Bridal Here! https://brparents.secondstreetapp.com/og/c990e7f6-c65d-4d69-b3fa-b180a99eef22/gallery/289444397  Filmed at Envision Podcast Studio Rentals Denham Springs www.envisionpodcaststudio.com   LOCAL LEADERS THE PODCAST LINKS: Our Website: www.LocalLeadersThePodcast.com   Our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LocalLeadersPodcast  Our Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/localleaderspodcast/  THANK YOU TO THESE LOCAL BUSINESSES FOR THE SUPPORT!   Denham Springs Fit Body Boot Camp: https://getfitdenhamsprings.com/getfitdenhamsprings359108991589553470388  Tricia Johnston Realtor : Latter & Blum https://triciajohnston.latter-blum.com  Fit Blendz Denham Springs: https://fitblendz.revelup.com/weborder/?establishment=12  Planet Plant it Landscaping: https://ppitoday.com

From Randazzo's Italian Market's Website: With devotion to my family and a love for cooking, we are happy to bring Randazzo’s Italian Market to the Denham Springs area. We aren’t simply a deli, or good food fast. Randazzo's ensures the highest quality ingredients with an authentic taste of Italy in an easy, affordable and accessible way. Visit our market and enjoy a glass of our house wine and fresh pasta or select a carry out item from our prepared tastes of Italy. We also offer catering services for special events and occasions.  We have catered offsite for dinner rehearsals, anniversaries and weddings.  Originally from Rome Italy, owner and chef Antonio Randazzo now resides in the states with his American wife and three children. Proud to call Louisiana home and even more excited to bring the flavors of Italy to you, this family owned business takes the traditions from the hills of Italy, to the bayou country. Randazzo's Italian Market owners share not their story into business ownership but also their amazing love story while sitting down with Local Leaders The Podcast Host Jim Chapman, and you will not want to miss it!   Randazzo's Italian Market website: www.RandazzosItalianMarket.com   Randazzo's Italian Market Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RandazzosItalianMarket  VFW Website: www.VFW.Org   Filmed at Envision Podcast Studio Rentals Denham Springs www.envisionpodcaststudio.com   LOCAL LEADERS THE PODCAST LINKS:  Our Website: www.LocalLeadersThePodcast.com   Our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LocalLeadersPodcast  Our Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/localleaderspodcast/  THANK YOU TO THESE LOCAL BUSINESSES FOR THE SUPPORT!   Tricia Johnston Realtor : Latter & Blum https://triciajohnston.latter-blum.com  Fit Blendz Denham Springs: https://fitblendz.revelup.com/weborder/?establishment=12  Planet Plant it Landscaping: https://ppitoday.com BJ Pawn www.BJPawn.net   Blaksheep Creative https://blaksheepcreative.com​​​​  SR Enterprise Painting  https://www.facebook.com/SR-Enterprise-848358978571390  HomeKey Mortgage: Tiffany Sicard https://www.facebook.com/TiffanyGuehoSicardMortgageSr.LoanOfficer  William Waldrep TWFG https://agentpages.twfg.com/williamwaldrep/  Aydell Lane Spa and Boutique Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Aydell-Lane-Spa-Boutique-LLC-101969087841519  Look at me 4d Imaging https://lookatme4dimaging.com

Locally Investing in our Youth. Front Yard Bikes on Local Leaders:The Podcast 114
From the FYB website: Front Yard Bikes is a community bike shop that focuses on teaching participants of all ages how to fix and maintain bikes. We teach and develop skills in mathematics, physics and mechanics, while promoting inclusivity, mentorship, recreation and academic achievement. We offer youth in the community a safe, free after-school program. They are taught responsibility and become peer leaders as they are faced with ethical and moral questions in their day-to-day lives. The heart of our program is motivated by compassion for kids from low-income families that are willing to work for what they get. We hope to impact the youth of Baton Rouge, one bike at a time, one heart at a time, because the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow. Jim Chapman sits down with the founder of Front Yard Bikes (Dustin Lafont and supporter Jenny Seivers) and discovers so much more about the inception of the program as well as future plans. #NonProfit #Podcast #FrontYardBikes #LocalLeadersThePodcast #LeadershipPodcast #BatonRouge    Front Yard Bikes on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/midcityshop   Front Yard Bikes on the web:  https://www.frontyardbikes.com   Filmed at Envision Podcast Studio Rentals Denham Springs www.envisionpodcaststudio.com   LOCAL LEADERS THE PODCAST LINKS:  Our Website: www.LocalLeadersThePodcast.com   Our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LocalLeadersPodcast   Our Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/localleaderspodcast/   THANK YOU TO THESE LOCAL BUSINESSES FOR THE SUPPORT!   Tricia Johnston Realtor : Latter & Blum https://triciajohnston.latter-blum.com  BJ Pawn www.BJPawn.net  Blaksheep Creative https://blaksheepcreative.com​​​​   SR Enterprise Painting  https://www.facebook.com/SR-Enterprise-848358978571390   HomeKey Mortgage: Tiffany Sicard https://www.facebook.com/TiffanyGuehoSicardMortgageSr.LoanOfficer   William Waldrep TWFG https://agentpages.twfg.com/williamwaldrep/

A New Approach. Clay Grant's Number 1 Recruiters & his Client First Concept in Staffing Businesses LOCAL LEADERS:The Podcast
In this episode of Local Leaders The Podcast, Jim Chapman sits down with Livingston Parish Staffing Agency Owner Clay Grant of Number 1 Recruiters to discuss the challenges facing the Staffing Agency industry during the heyday of the Covid-19 Pandemic. What Jim discovers is the interesting concept Clay institutes with his staffing agency where his small business provides a deep focus on both the client and potential employee to really strive and make sure the fit for both parties is a perfect match. Unlike larger staffing agency's Number 1 Recruiters does not take a money grab in order to simply place a body in his clients business but offers temp to perm service where his ultimate goal is for that employee to move on to the company in which he refers. Clay's Positive attitude, work ethic, and desire to help small business in Livingston Parish ( Though he staffs all over Louisiana ) really shines in this edition of Local Leaders:The Podcast and this is a must watch episode for all business Owners struggling to find the right employees.

Fear the Wolf! Woody Overton Solves the 15 Year Old Cold Case of the Murder of Courtney Coco. *Special Episode* Local Leaders:The Podcast
Fear the Wolf! Woody Overton Solves the 15 Year Old Cold Case of the Murder of Courtney Coco. *Special Episode* Local Leaders:The Podcast
Nearly 2 years ago Woody Overton through his popular podcast Real Life Real Crime investigated the Courtney Coco case. After nearly 15 years the case went cold. Within 7 weeks Woody Overton solved it. While Woody never sought credit, it appalled me that the D.A. in Rapides Parish (among others) refuse to even mention his hard work, time and effort in solving this case. As soon as the cameras rolled the piers that be seemed to accept full credit for a case they had over a decade to solve. I wanted to offer my thoughts on this as well as make an attempt to credit the amazing detective work performed by Woody Overton.   You can follow Local Leaders:The Podcast here www.LocalLeadersthepodcast.com You can check out the many podcast following the Courtney Coco Case with Woody Overton HERE https://realliferealcrime.com

Discovering JM Boutique's Passion for Fashion on Local Leaders:The Podcast S4 E9
The road to business ownership many times comes with twist and turns. Often time business owners are faced with a decision, follow what their heart is telling them to do or continue taking the "safe" road. Megan Goudeau terms this as taking the "Jump". With her very supportive husband Kyle by her side and behind her 100% in 2019 Megan did just that and launched her business JM Boutique in Denham Springs, LA. In this interview we go in depth with Megan to learn about that decision ( She signed her lease just hours before delivering her 2nd child ) The thought process when the Covid-19 Pandemic arrived just 6 months after opening, and how she persevered through adapting and innovating her business to continue to serve her dedicated clientele. What I learned (and will you too) is that with a positive attitude, a strong support system,  a unique aptitude for business, and a spouse that believes in you, you cannot only survive but thrive regardless of the circumstances. #FashionBoutique #Fashion #SmallBusiness #LocalBusiness #Podcast #LivingstonParish
