If you are working in an industry or factory, it is very important to protect your body from fire or extreme heat. But it is also important to protect your feet from getting exposed to such an atmosphere or environment. Most industries and their employees might overlook this factor.

The FR work boots help to protect the wearer against burns or explosions caused by harmful chemicals. Also, if you use heavy cutting tools like chainsaws and machinery, that safety footwear protects you from getting injured. 

The hazardous conditions when and where it is necessary to wear FR work boots are enlisted below:

  • When working at Fire Places:

As the name FR itself suggests, i.e., fire resistant or fire retardant, the main motive of these shoes is to protect you from fire. No matter in whichever factory, company, or industry you work, there are fire risks everywhere.

Especially those whose business is to play with fire all day long, for them it is a necessity to protect not only their body from fire but feet as well. Just life the FR clothing/suits, these shoes also provide you time to get away from the hazardous situation and protects your feet from burning by creating a barrier between your feet and the flames.

  • During usage of Heavy Objects:

If you work in a steel or metal industry, then there are 100% chances of hurting your feet very often. As there are possibilities of heavy objects might roll onto your feet accidentally. Well, you might not stop such sudden accidents, but you can keep your feet safe during those times. 

FR steel shoes are designed especially for such people, who work surrounds with heavy metals or objects. You can also surf through several FR outlet steel toe work boots to select the price, type, and design you wanted for yourself or your employees if you own an industry. 

     

  • In Slipping, Falling, and Tripping Areas:

There are maximum chances to fall, slip or trip over while working in a hurry in a factory. It can lead to a giant accident or cause serious injury not only to you but others as well. Hence, to protect yourself and other fellow employees from such situations, you can opt for FR boots that will help you to stick properly in the ground. So if you work in an oil or petrol industry, then you should adopt those safety shoes that won’t let you flip over.

  • Electrical Hazards:

Getting shocked or injured from electricity is one of the very common accidents that one gets to hear. One might protect their body from open electrical wires by wearing FR clothes, but what about one’s feet? There may be open wire lying in the floor, and one might step on it without unknowingly. Ordinary shoes or boots are unable to protect in such situations. 

In such places, FR shoes are there to protect you from getting indulged in any serious injury. And these are not only for the workers who deal with electrical stuff but for everybody from higher to lower rank employees as high-voltage electricity and wires more or less used in every industry or factory.

  • While using Dangerous Chemicals:

Commonly, there will be thousands or hundreds of chemicals present in a laboratory. And with hundreds of harmful chemicals, there are a hundred percent chances of accidents. FR coats can easily protect you from such chemicals or huge chemical explosions. So as that, the FR shoes take the responsibility of securing your feet from getting burnt or injured from a different type of harmful chemicals.

Planning a wedding? We chat with the new owner of this popular bridal show that’s coming up this week to see what’s new this year.

Kristie Bulach has been a part of the Afterhours Bridal Show with A Bride’s Mafia for 8 years as a vendor. So it only seemed like the right decision when she took over as the owner of the business in November 2017 when the opportunity presented itself. 

“I have been in the wedding industry for the past 13 years so this is something that is right up my alley with being a wedding photographer and networking with all of the vendors in the area,” she says. “Even before I took over the business I was heavily involved with getting together models, hair, and makeup for the previous shows.”

Kristie Bulach, the new owner of A Bride’s Mafia

Bulach says she’s always enjoyed the planning process when it comes to weddings, so she was more than thrilled to take over ownership of the wedding planning service. 

Now that she’s in charge, Bulach says that she’s been focused on making A Bride’s Mafia even better than it was before. 

“I have been traveling around to other bridal shows throughout the country and Canada – gathering information from both brides and vendors,” she says. 

With all that research in mind, she says she’s preparing a show that is a true experience for guests. “I don’t want our Afterhours Bridal Show to be just your typical expo/trade show,” she says. 

“My whole take on the bridal show is to hand-pick exclusive vendors in each category. We find a lot of our vendors are the same caliber, price range, and quality, so you know you’re getting amazing quality.”

This year you can plan on vendors being interactive and engaging at the March 11 event. The Afterhours Bridal Show will be held at Music Hall from 6-9pm and boasts a $20,000 wedding giveaway. 

Then, on October 29, A Bride’s Mafia will host another event from 6-9pm at the Summit Hotel 

“We are extremely excited about the new concept for our show where we are bringing Pinterest boards to life,” says Baluch. “We are having vendors collaborate together to create these amazing scenes that brides can see at the show to help them make decisions on what type of wedding they are thinking of planning. We have a very high caliber of vendors for our next two shows and are super excited to see all the creativity that comes from everyone.”

Our new graphic design columnist offers tips and strategies to help give your marketing plan a boost this spring.

Like every other Cincinnatian, the ladies behind the Zeal40 logo were lobbying hard for Punxsutawney Phil not to see his shadow on Groundhog Day and get the spring show on the road. Like you, they’ve seen enough gray skies and are counting the days until they can bring out those white jeans and strappy sandals.

Cincinnati natives Nicole Fariello and Stacy Koenig, cofounders of creative agency Zeal40, understand the pain of our seemingly endless winters and are looking ahead to spring. They’re leading their clients through what could be called “spring cleaning”; dusting off anything that needs a refresh and opening the windows to reveal a new and improved brand. Zeal40’s suite of creative services can also help you position your brand for growth potential by connecting you to new clients and delivering an even better experience to existing clients. Meeting your brand’s marketing, design and strategy needs is their passion, and their many years of creative experience can bring your vision to life.

Every industry can identify “trends”, and they’re not all fickle, fly-by-night ideas that will come and go. Paying attention to seasonal developments and changing trends in your industry can by dizzying. The Zeal40 team invites you to listen in as they highlight some ideas to give your brand the spring boost it needs.

Tell your story with photos:

The right professional photos can truly elevate your message. Those images can help define who you are and what you do. Do you even remember when you last had a headshot taken? (The selfie you took when you were having a good hair day does not count.) If it is more than a couple years old, or two hairstyles ago, it’s time for a new one. Spring and summer offer so many more options when it comes to outdoor photography, so now is the time to get a photoshoot on the books. Stacy advises highlighting your brand’s personality and culture with photos of your team, the services you offer, and your products. Think outside the box to put forward creative images of your services and products in different environments to make a statement.   

Color Theory:

Spring means ushering in a fresh, vibrant color palette. This may also be the ideal time to think about your brand’s color strategy. Your product probably already has a color “story”, but do you need to add secondary colors to help decipher product or service lines? Perhaps you need to streamline or simplify your brand guidelines. Refreshing icons, colors or fonts periodically helps keep your brand current. You might even need a complete stylistic overhaul and bringing in fresh eyes should be part of your strategy to make that happen. The team’s advice is to determine a brand message to ensure consistency and differentiate you from your competition. 

Enhancing your Web presence:

Think about how potential clients are finding you. Chances are, it involves a web search, at which point they will land on your website. Take a hard look to determine if your site really tells your story. Do the content and photos offer a true reflection of your image?  If your website redesign was a New Year’s resolution that failed by January 17th, you’re not alone. It’s something that slips to the back burner again and again, but it’s time to put it front and center on your to-do list. If you’re not taking advantage of the latest technology to really tell your story, and your photos and content don’t offer a current reflection of who you are, what you do, and why you’re relevant, it’s time to seek professional guidance. 

Put it in Print:

Yes, many of you are focusing more on digital content, and sustainability and eco-friendly options are top of mind, as they should be. But knowing how and when to incorporate print material into your strategy is crucial. If you attend tradeshows and conferences to promote your products or services, the need to stand out is vital. From the eye-catching design of your booth to the promotional materials you use, smart design will attract the right consumers. Stacy notes that Zeal40 does this kind of work for many of their clients and cites the importance of giving potential customers the right overview and contact information. New printing techniques can help you make the right choices when choosing items you want to use as promotional materials for your business.

Marketing:

Making your mark in a crowded field means exploring all avenues of advertising. There are many ways to advertise, some you may not even have considered, so seeking expertise in this area is the key to spending effectively. Not every type of marketing is right for you, and you need to be sure you’re getting the most bang for your advertising buck. Considering that small businesses may want to spend between seven and twenty percent of revenue on marketing, you want to spend well. Choosing an agency with expertise in this area will help you make the best use of your marketing budget, no matter which end of the range it falls.

Cutting Edge:

While video is not exactly cutting edge, it is something many businesses do not utilize to their full advantage. Video is a platform that every business can capitalize on. Social media outlets and websites are ideal places to post video, and video can be a vital means of communication at conferences, tradeshows and events. Even email campaigns can benefit from short videos.

Zeal40 can help you create the ideal video, from pre- to post-production, and can even edit existing footage. Stacy and Nicole feel that personalized video is especially important and is helpful in multiple settings; company recruitment, internal or external communication, announcements or presenting services.

Now is the perfect time to recharge your brand with new, invigorating ideas. Zeal40 would love to help you fine tune your marketing plan to give your clients a true and clear picture of who you are. Reach out to chat!

Celebrate International Women’s Day and female entrepreneurship at an upcoming Women in Business event!

Women are making a splash in the business world and the Social Enterprise Alliance (SEA) is helping them continue to break the glass ceiling. 

SEA is a national organization with a Greater Cincinnati chapter that aims to help enterprising nonprofits, social purpose businesses, and educates to help promote sustainable social innovation through networking, educational activities, partnerships, and legislation. 

One of the ways the Greater Cincinnati chapter of SEA is doing this is through their Women in Business event coming up March 14 at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.  

The event celebrates International Womens’ Day to celebrate women’s empowerment in entrepreneurship, leadership, and how the feminine spirit can be applied to all organizations. 

“An equal world is an enable world,” says SEA. “Come connect with like-minded professionals in the social enterprise, non-profit, conscious business, and entrepreneurial space as as explore stories of how business can collectively help create a gender equal world.”

According to David Gaines, CEO La Terza Coffee and SEA member, the event will include stories, speakers, art, and a gallery area highlighting several great, empowering women organizations in the region.

The day is intended to be a day that inspires others with hope and real actions that everyone can take an apply to work and advocacy for a more equal world. “The day will be a progression of talks and topics, from self-care and rest, implicit bias in gender, and unpacking feminine and masculine narratives,” says Gaines. “I’m most excited about our panel of amazing women from throughout our city, representing many different intersections of race and work experiences.”

In addition to its Women in Business event, SEA is continuing to introduce ways for its members to engage in the field and with one another in meaningful ways. 

“Affinity networks will allow members across the country to knowledge share and create community with others in the field who wake up everyday thinking about the same problems and solutions,” says Gaines. “Working committees will enable members to work together on issues important to the social enterprise field as a whole. In addition to these changes, SEA members will have many more opportunities to learn and contribute to one another and the field as whole, with more webinars, partnerships, and an annual Summit.”

Gaines says that all are welcome to attend the event, whether they are a business leader, work at a non-profit, or want to start a social enterprise one day. “SEA members and non-members are invited, so bring a friend or colleague,” he adds.

To learn more about the upcoming event or to get your tickets, click here. Gaines says that many of the sessions from the day will be recorded, so those who cannot attend will have an opportunity to learn from the speakers in a podcast platform a couple of weeks after the event. You can find announcements for the podcast and other future events here.

Have an idea that will make the world a better place? Learn about a social enterprise hub and the programs they offer to help make those ideas a reality.

There are a plethora of entrepreneurs, business owners, and startups in the Queen City. Many of these companies are on a mission to provide solutions to complex social and environmental challenges. Those companies and businesses sometimes turn to support from social enterprise groups like Flywheel Social Enterprise Hub, a capacity-building organization for startups with social impact in the Greater Cincinnati region. 

“Social entrepreneurs build companies that provide solutions to complex social and environmental challenges, either through the products and services they offer or the populations they employ,” says Josie Dalton, Program Manager at Flywheel. “We support these entrepreneurs through programming, resources, and connections to help them develop sustainable business models and maximize their impact.”

One of these ways Flywheel offers support is through its flagship program, the 10-week Elevator Social Impact Accelerator, as well as through workshops and coaching opportunities for early-stage social entrepreneurs throughout the year.

The inspiration behind Flywheel is that they want to help social entrepreneurs find customers, talent, and capital – just as any other entrepreneur needs. 

“Flywheel recognized these needs, and developed our programs to connect passionate founders with the rich resources and collaborative partners in the StartupCincy community,” says Dalton. “We’ve also identified the particular challenge of access to capital for social impact startup founders. Seeing this wide gap in access to capital has inspired a new element of our mission: catalyzing a community of investors in the Cincinnati region who will use alternative investment models the fuel the growth of startups that generate both profit and positive impact.”

There are three different ways that the community can get involved with Flywheel: 

Social entrepreneurs who are looking for help to build and grow their startup can check out these programs: Opt In Social Enterprise Coaching, workshops, and the Elevator Social Impact Accelerator.

We’ll also have details to share about the next iteration of the Elevator Accelerator Program and application cycle.”

Learn about a local pop-up mocktail bar helping you enjoy alcohol-free celebrations, connections and community.

Kristen Domke is no stranger to addiction. She’s battled the addiction of alcohol and has since been sober for nearly 18 months. In the midst of finding her sobriety, she wanted to offer a community for others like her. 

That’s when she came up with the idea of Gem City SoberBar, a sober bar that’s “popping up” all over Dayton and surrounding areas. 

“Gem City SoberBar fills the gap between coffee shops and bars,” says Domke. “We exist to bring an atmosphere that no one has ever experienced before that focuses on providing mocktails, music, and so much more. We are open to all genders, ages, races, and religions. We want to be a safe space to go to have a great time and make community through connection.”

When developing her business idea, Domke says that she wanted to offer something that would encourage connection with human beings, while also being out and about in different atmospheres. As a music lover, she also wanted to create something that incorporated that. “I wanted to encompass not just sobriety, butan artistic, healthy way to create connections while having a blast,” she adds.

There is nothing quote like Gem City SoberBar in the region. “Our mocktails are crafted to perfection for you, we want to make this an experience you will never forget,” she says.

Gem City SoberBar currently operates out of Dayton. “As we are a pop-up bar popping up at different locations, we do not have a specific space,” says Domke. “We are always up for being booked for your next baby shower, graduation, party, etc.”

The goal at Gem City SoberBar is to open a brick-and-mortar location in the next 2-3 years, but before that, Domke wants to help spread the word about the business by booking events, pop-ups, feedback, and securing new partners.

There are people all over the Dayton area that are helping to make Gem City SoberBar a versatile business in traveling to customers while also offering something for everyone at all of its events.

The menu at Gem City SoberBar includes mocktails and coffee. 

“Currently we have our favorite, a spinoff of the Moscow Mule, and our Clean Comfort – sponsored by CLEAN Cause drinks,” she says. “We like to change it up a bit from pop-up to pop-up and from event to event. We want to give customers a sense of wonder, as well as continuing to make our menu grow. We enjoy seeing which mocktails are a hit and which ones maybe we should give a rest.”

Domke says she’s currently planning a few pop-ups in the coming month. “With those, we are looking for partners, as well as locations and would love to work with anyone on that,” she says. “We are also working to put together a focus group, for feedback and more information on what you, the people, would like to see in the future from Gem City SoberBar.”

To learn more about Gem City SoberBar, you can follow along on Facebook and Instagram. You can also send an email at gemcitysoberbar@yahoo.com to be put on the mailing list, want added to the focus group, or want information on how Gem City SoberBar is growing and how you can help volunteer at events.

Learn about the one-day conference coming up in March that provides you with resources to enhance your happiness, freedom, and prosperity through the lens of personal finance.

The American Dream looks drastically different than it did a few decades ago. That’s the idea that Diania Merriam wanted to explore when she planned to host EconoMe, a one-day conference coming up  that provides attendees with resources to enhance their happiness, freedom, and prosperity through the lens of personal finance.

“Provocative speakers will explore the idea of a ‘new American Dream,’” Merriam explains.

With roots in the FIRE movement (financial independence, retire early), the EconoMe Conference has its sights set on helping people join the lifestyle movement of FIRE with the goal of financial freedom. Attendees will have the opportunity to watch the first documentary about the movement called Playing with FIRE as well as meetups for networking and discussions on other topics such as real estate, investing, travel hacking, healthcare options for early retirement, and more.”

“I was motivated to start a conference after the pursuit of FIRE changed my life,” says Merriam. “After I discovered blogs like Mr. Money Mustache and Frugalwoods, as well as books such as Your Money or Your Life and The Simple Path to Wealth, I used my new-found knowledge to get out of $30,000 in debt in 11 months.”

After getting herself out of debt, Merriam was able to negotiate a remote working relationship with her employer as well as a two-month unpaid sabbatical to walk the Camino de Santiago (a 500-mile trek across northern Spain).

The EconoMe Conference will take place on March 7 at the University of Cincinnati’s Great Hall at Tangeman University Center. It’ll end with a party following the event at the Woodward Theater.

Once the conference is over, Merriam says that she hopes attendees are inspired by the ideas shared through the speakers and leave feeling that they learned something valuable.

“I also hope the content expands their understanding of what is possible when it comes to their finances and creating more freedom in their lives,” she adds.

Local freelancers, rejoice! Learn about a new coworking space that provides a creativity-inspiring space to work from home away from home.

Working from home isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Sure, it has its perks like working in pajamas all day, but it can also be lonely, distracting and uninspiring.

Whether you’re a freelancer or just work from home, Playground Coworks offers creatives and telecommuters in the Tri-State a space to call their “work home.”

“Playground Coworks is a shared working space, where you can be part of a community of creatives, entrepreneurs, and small business owners,” says Owner Ollie Kroner. “You can rent a desk, schedule a group meeting, or drop by.”

Playground Coworks is centrally located in Northside, above the Northside Tavern. The coworking space takes on a more casual, creatively inspiring, community-driven approach as opposed to other coworking spaces in the city. 

“These days so many people are working from home or from a coffee shop,” says Kroner. “Most people like the freedom of freelancing, but find joy in working around other creative people. Playground offers a setting where we can share ideas, work through challenges, or just take a break and have a friendly conversation.”

Playground mostly sees full-time creatives and others with creative side projects in its space, which offers an open layout, 14 individual desks, and separate meeting space. 

The goal behind the space is to encourage collaboration among its users, rather than competitiveness for freelance resources. In fact, Kroner says that there was even an instance where a logo designer and jewelry maker got together in the coworking space to complete a project.

There are several perks to becoming a member at Playground Coworks, including: flexible desks to share or dedicated desks for exclusive use, high-speed wired and wireless internet, use of conference room, 24/7 access with security codes, free coffee/espresso, storage for work items in the space, mailing address, and discounted web design and hosting.
