On the Terrapin Small Biz Connection podcast and radio show, we don’t just talk with business owners about their creation story and what their business does… we dive deep into what it really takes to own and operate a small business in Northern Michigan.

Life “up north” is unlike any other corner of the globe, and with that comes significant challenges, as well as joys. Tim and Ruthy chat with area business owners about the things their customers may be surprised to learn, how policymakers affect our livelihood, the highs and lows of tourism in the area, and more- and they’re not afraid to ask the tough questions.

Do you run a business in Northern Michigan? Then you’ll love tuning into these frank and open discussions about what it’s really like up here as a business owner.

Listen in every Sunday morning at 8:30am on WTCM NewsTalk 580, or wherever you get your podcasts.

And don’t forget to check out Season One of our show, Team Nerd Tech Show where, over 65 episodes, we delve into all things nerdy and tech!
