ThomasCauley-actor-headshot.jpg

WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL VENUE?
Theatre, film, performing arts groups, etc.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR FIELD OF WORK?
After having a lifelong interest, and strong encouragement in the high school years. I decided to dedicate myself to performing.

First getting my Theatre BFA (Primarily musical theatre, but also studying stage combat, commedia dell-arte, shakespeare, dance, just to name a few) 

Followed up by an acting apprenticeship at Williamstown theatre festival.

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE think THEY KNOW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
That it's straightforward. Audition, and either you get it or you don't. 

When in truth, you never stop training. You never stop learning. And you never stop struggling in some way or another. 

NAME ONE THING THAT YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
That there's always more than meets the eye.

People who've seen me dance don't always know about my singing or classical work.

The same for people who've seen my classical and other speaking roles.

Having an ace up your sleeve skill-wise can be nice, but it's also a double edged sword.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
The variety and constant inspiration

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE STARTING OUT IN YOUR INDUSTRY?
Don't let the initial rejections get to you. Every audition is a learning experience. And never be afraid to reach out.

WHAT IS THE ONE BOOK THAT YOU THINK I SHOULD READ RIGHT NOW?
The Dude and the Zen Master by Jeff Bridges & Bernie Glassman

Local Business Spotlight | Patricia Brigman

NAME
Patricia Brigman

COMPANY
Wisconsin Medmark, Inc

We offer five services: Executive Coaching, Strategic Planning, Facilitation, Training and Marketing Project Execution

POSITION
Founder/ Director

PatriciaBrigman-020719-02-web.jpg

WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
Executive Coaching: a professional eager to grow, learn and adapt to the every changing global marketplace.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR FIELD OF WORK?
Requests from people who knew me and believed my objective coaching and mentoring illuminated career paths and growth opportunities that were not visible or real for them at the time.    

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE think THEY KNOW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
People think that Executive coaching is counseling - not true at all. Professional coaching offers insights into work relationships, tactics,  and strategies that allow a young or seasoned professional to navigate their career towards success. 

NAME ONE THING THAT YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
The joy I feel when the light bursts forth and a path, on the professional journey, appears, as if by magic. No magic is involved, simply listening, questioning and caring help both of us in the coaching relationship. 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
Seeing the change in people's view of their career and their potential. After 28 years of coaching high-level, mid-level and entry level professionals, the thrill still changes my day.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE STARTING OUT IN YOUR INDUSTRY?
It’s about them not you. In helping others to understand their professional situation and the opportunities ahead of them, your satisfaction in their success builds your own future.

WHAT IS THE ONE BOOK THAT YOU THINK I SHOULD READ RIGHT NOW?
Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ Daniel Goleman. No one should coach without reading Daniel Goleman's books on EQ.

Local Business Spotlight | Jennifer Peterson

NAME
Jennifer Peterson

COMPANY
Peterson Editing Services

POSITION
Owner

JenniferPeterson-010819-02-web.jpg

WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
My ideal clients are authors who want to polish their works before submitting to various venues or who have made the decision to self-publish their works.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR FIELD OF WORK?
I came into freelance editing naturally. I am a lifelong reader, and that led to earning a master’s degree in English. That in turn led me to teach college English, and the next logical step for me was to enter the world of freelance editing.

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE think THEY KNOW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
Many people believe editing consists of nitpicking grammar and punctuation. That is part of editing, but a good editing job consists of so much more. Editors look at sentence structure, paragraph organization, and the logical follow through of ideas that helps a manuscript flow smoothly and communicate ideas clearly. 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
It gives me a feeling of satisfaction to see a work blossom into its full potential.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE STARTING OUT IN YOUR INDUSTRY?
Read, read, read. The more you read the more that good spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, and a solid sense of narrative will sink into you and become second-nature.

WHAT IS THE ONE BOOK THAT YOU THINK I SHOULD READ RIGHT NOW?
I have just finished reading The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. It's an exciting and gripping narrative and I was deeply emotionally moved by the story.

Local Business Spotlight | Carrie Kelly

NAME
Carrie Kelly

COMPANY
Mindful Solutions, Counseling & Consulting, LLC

POSITION
Owner, Mindfulness Trainer, Clinical Therapist and Clinical Substance Abuse Therapist

CarrieKelly-100217-02-web.jpg

WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
IDEAL Counseling Client ~ Someone who is READY and motivated to be more awake in their lives! Those who are seeking greater understanding and mastery in their lives.

IDEAL Mindfulness Client ~ A progressive company or organization that is looking for fresh and interesting ways to support its workforce by adding mindfulness to its existing wellness program. Programming can be specific to leadership, admin, labor,.. anyone can benefit from being more intentional and strengthening relational attunement. 

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR FIELD OF WORK?
My own wakeup call was the convergence of several life events,  allowing me to realize that I was the source for much of my suffering. Realizing my reactivity and judgments were keeping me from  what was REALLY important. 

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE think THEY KNOW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
Mindful Meditation is for hippie-dippie types and requires one to denounce their values, stop their thinking and they will achieve enlightenment if they just breathe. Not exactly, research shows that by incorporating mindfulness based practices into one’s personal and professional life, they can: improve memory, decrease reactivity, and experience more compassion and gratitude (to name a few :-). All good stuff! 

What therapy IS NOT~Just chatting, to a stone faced, blank starring robot-like individual who just wants to "talk about your feelings." Therapy is truly about enhancing tools and resources that an individual already has to enhance resilience, improve emotional stability and experience greater contentment. 

NAME ONE THING THAT YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
That having an objective, honest and clinically trained individual (a therapist) in your corner is not the same as talking to your mother, friends or your hair dresser about your problems. Moving through difficult times with the support of a trained professional can be the difference between lasting suffering or greater contentment.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
Despite the occupational hazards of being human, I am fortunate enough to witness the power of human resilience everyday.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE STARTING OUT IN YOUR INDUSTRY?
Invite feedback and advice from mentors who are honest about their successes as well as their failures.

WHAT IS THE ONE BOOK THAT YOU THINK I SHOULD READ RIGHT NOW?
Wherever You Go, There You Are ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

ADDITIONAL NOTES:
Mindful Meditation ~ Many companies talk about mindfulness, but don't know WHAT and HOW to implement something that will work for them. I am always happy to discuss how mindfulness can be adapted for their needs and ultimately enhance the workplace.

Counseling ~ Free 15-minute phone consultations available to discuss questions prior to scheduling an appointment. This is a great way to determine fit and ease any anxiety that may exist prior to that 1st appointment.
