Host Sandra Clarke has one foot in the urban world of Toronto + the other in Highlands East, Ontario -- between Bancroft + Haliburton -- the southern most part of Algonquin Park.

Small Town + Co. Podcast Episode 2: Millennial Emily Clarke
Let's chat on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/buildyourcreativebusiness/ Hello, Welcome to Small Town + Co podcast I’m your host Sandra Clarke, welcome to episode 2. Entrepreneur + business operations in small towns have unique growth strategies that differ from urban + online companies. Most small town businesses are brick and mortar with little, if any online presence. Small Town + Co. Podcast helps small town businesses navigate the digital world, social media marketing and business growth to increase sales and reach their personal and professional goals. I have one foot in the urban art world of Toronto + the other foot is in Highlands East, Ontario -- between Bancroft + Haliburton -- the southern most part of Algonquin Park. In today’s episode I am speaking with Emily Clarke. Emily is millennial, a brilliant writer, and about to study veterinary administration in January 2020.  She has spent a lot of time in Bancroft, Ontario, the small town I’m currently focusing on.  Emily is my daughter I’m trying to talk her into moving out of the GTA to start a business in a small town.   Some background.  In 2002 our family was camping at Earl Rowe Conservation Area near Alliston, Ontario.  We went into the small town of Alliston for lunch.  I remember chatting with a middle aged woman about how lovely and artistic Alliston looked.  She said, “Move here!  We need young blood.”  I didn’t quite understand what she meant.  But now that I’m a middle aged woman in love with the small town of Bancroft, I get it. So Emily, “Move to Bancroft, we need young blood!”

Small Town + Co. Podcast Ep. 1 WELCOME + INTRODUCTION
Hello, Welcome to Small Town + Co podcast I’m your host Sandra Clarke, welcome to episode 1. Entrepreneur + business operations in small towns have unique growth strategies that differ from urban + online companies. Most small town businesses are brick and mortar with little, if any online presence. Small Town + Co. Podcast helps small town businesses navigate the digital world, social media marketing and business growth to increase sales and reach their personal and professional goals. I have one foot in the urban art world of Toronto + the other foot is in Highlands East, Ontario -- between Bancroft + Haliburton -- the southern most part of Algonquin Park. In this first episode I'm going to introduce myself and tell you what this podcast can bring to you and your business. I was born in Montreal and lived in New York, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Toronto. I'm an artist, art teacher and I teach courses about the art business, specifically digital marketing and social media marketing. I've been making and teaching art for over 21 years.  I make and teach weaving, knitting, spinning, fused glass, jewelry making, adult colouring book, and most recently published Eco Kids custom colouring book. In those 21 years of making and teaching art I witnessed and participated in the growth of the digital world and social media and its advantages for artists, entrepreneurs and businesses. In 2010 my husband and I bought an off-the-grid Cabin in the Woods.  Little did we know, then, that we would want to make our off the grid retreat a more permanent residence. In 2010 I was warmly welcomed into the art community  of Haliburton Highlands. I learned that many of the artists in the area were once residence of more urban centres in Canada and were drawn to the Bancroft area for a better lifestyle. I also learned that many people native to Bancroft we're very creative and, in fact TVO and Studio 2 proclaimed Bancroft as the most talented town in Ontario in 2004. I find myself in a unique and advantageous position of duelality.  My career has been long enough to experience life before internet and after internet. And geographically diverse enough to experience rural and urban business models. I want to share my experience with you. This podcast will bring you interviews, advise, and current strategies used by small town business owners about business growth and all encompassing well being of small town entrepreneurs. I hope you will join me and my guests for the next few weeks and as discuss small town business businesses and entrepreneurship.
