Description

Introducing The Unshakeables, a new podcast from Chase for Business and iHeartMedia's Ruby Studio.  Small businesses are the heart and soul of this country, but it takes a brave individual to start and run a company of their own.  From mom-and-pop coffee shops to auto-detailing garages -- no matter the type of industry you’re in, every small business owner knows that the journey is full of the unexpected.  A single moment may even change the course of your business forever.  Those who stand firm in their resolve have a special name, we call them - The Unshakeables.  These are their stories.



Join Ben Walter, CEO of Chase for Business, and Tanya Nebo, a lawyer and business consultant, as they share stories of real small business owners across America who’ve gone through some of the most unexpected situations anyone can face and walked away stronger for it.  These aren’t stories about the darlings of Silicon Valley or titans of Wall Street -- these are real stories from the real people behind the small companies that power their communities every day.

Rob Starkman’s sophomore year was not a typical college experience. He spent most days chugging energy drinks and sweating over fabric dyes in his dorm room. It had all started a few months before, when Rob took on a new role as student manager of the men’s basketball team and it all almost ended when one of the largest companies in the world sent him a cease and desist letter.    Join Ben and Tanya as they chat with Rob about the stroke of inspiration that started Rock ‘Em Socks in a dorm room, and the large legal team that went after the business. Discover how he fought back, overcoming obstacles from outside and inside—his company, and the hard-won lessons that put Rock’Em on the map.    The Unshakeables is brought to you by Chase for Business and Ruby Studio by iHeartMediaSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Discover how he brought his business back from the dead, ignoring common sense, for his own gut instincts, his investments to diversify his income, and back into better communities for all.

When Denise Woodard found out her daughter Vivi had severe food allergies, she went into super mom mode. She looked for food that was nutritious and fun but what she found at the store was disappointing at best. So she took to the kitchen and started making her own snacks for Vivi, laying the foundation for Partake Foods, a Black-owned, female-led company offering allergy-friendly foods. As her snacks started to gain traction, Denise realized she needed more capital—and fast—if she wanted Partake to succeed.    Join Ben and Tanya as they chat with Denise about Partakes-humble beginnings and near failure to launch. Discover her commitment to funding Partake, pawning her engagement ring and emptying her savings in the process, and a chance meeting in a trade show bathroom that unlocked new doors for the company. These are The Unshakeables.    The Unshakeables is brought to you by Chase for Business and Ruby Studio by iHeartMediaSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
