Chuck and Heath out flipping burgers for our friends who work for the City of Marianna!
Inspiring and informative program tonight at the Power Forward Workshop hosted by @firstcommercecu and @domistation. Lots of discussion from a local panel of entrepreneurs about how to tackle industry disruption. We heard from Sarah Bolinder of Chop Barbershop, Paul Bradshaw of Southern Strategy Group and Mike Bracciale of Fly Mouthwash on how they push the envelope in their businesses.
We had a great time being the presenting sponsor at tonight's @vlcchamber Awards & Dinner. Our very own market executive, Heath Dawson, was honored to speak to the group. Congratulations is due to @jessies_restaurant_catering for winning "Small Business of the Year." They have been our caterer at all of our Valdosta location grand openings. Also, congrats to Caterine Nordin for winning our iPad giveaway. Thank you, Valdosta!
Excellent presentation from our #PwrFwd speaker @chipconley. Lots of great nuggets for our area businesses. Can’t wait to see how everyone powers forward with what they learned!
We’re excited that our #PwrFwd speaker, @chipconley is able to spend some time with some @fsubiz students today sharing his journey. Will one of these students be “the next Chip Conley”?

We are so happy to have our second location open in Valdosta, Georgia (on Inner Perimeter across from Publix). At our grand opening event last night, we felt so welcomed by members of this amazing community. We invite you to take a look at some video from last night for a look at our new financial center. And stop by and visit us in person!
Listening to Tim Rowe speak about building effective startup ecosystems at @gototcc Spark this morning. Great conclusion to #Tallahassee Startup Week. #TSW17
