Still Alive at Five

Five years.  It really hadn’t dawned on me until I began seeing some of our members (former and current) celebrating being in business for five years as well.   I definitely share in their sentiments that time really does fly, and just the enormous amount of thankfulness for all of the support from clients, friends and family.   It is funny how five years can feel like an eternity and a drop in the bucket…

Savannah Stopover 2015 Preview

  At last, Savannah Stopover has announced their official lineup! There will be over 100 bands, including 18 local bands, in town March 5-7 for a weekend full of good tunes. For me, my favorite part of the festival is that, for the most part, I am unfamiliar with many of the bands scheduled to play. I love the experience of finding new bands to listen to and go support. Here are a few of…

Do Bikes Make You Happier, Healthier and Boost Your Performance?

The answer is yes, according to John R. Bennett of the Savannah Bicycle Campaign. Not only does it improve your commuting well-being, bicycling improves your performance and productivity, makes you more pleasant to be around  — and saves you money on parking and gas. Bennett moved to Savannah in 1993, where he lived downtown and walked everywhere. When he moved south of Victory Drive, he realized the distance he was driving just didn’t make sense. “I like…

Thinc-tern Chronicles: Meet Elaine Hanratty

We’ve got not one, but two, awesome interns this summer here at Thinc! We’re proud to have them flitting about the office learning the in’s, out’s, and most importantly integrating them with our ThincMembers. We talk about plenty of strange subjects, and today’s happen to center around the fifth ocean. Yep, you read that right. Just as Pluto was demoted from its’ planet status years back, now the oceans have conspired and created a fifth…

Thinc Local

Savannah. The Hostess City. A place that invites you to walk among history while perusing local shops unique to the city’s canvas. A place where history and innovation are now working harmoniously. Which has led us, as ThincSavannah, to create a quarterly event series: Year of the Local. An evening to bring more awareness to our local companies and promote their products, encouraging guests to incorporate these businesses a regular part of their purchasing lifestyle….

Thinc Member Thurs: Whitney Shephard

Name: Whitney Shephard, Transport Studio Your Business – (the ‘ahah’ moment to entrepreneurial-ship if was one): There wasn’t a “moment”, but rather an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.  Savannah has a relatively small market for transportation planning and engineering.  So, it’s not like I could make a move to another firm down the street.  I realized that I needed to create my own job, and I –eventually- realized that I was lucky enough to be…

Thinc Member Thurs: Seth Michalak

Name: Seth Michalak Your Business – (the ‘ahah’ moment to entrepreneurial-ship if was one): When the start-up I was working for could no longer afford to pay me, I knew I didn’t want to go back to a traditional office job. At that moment I started looking for clients, and SM Consulting was born. Fun Fact about you: I used to get paid (very poorly) to be on the radio. I still want to get…

A New Way to Work

‘What the heck is coworking?’ I thought to myself before my interview with Thinc. And so, like any dutiful candidate before the interview, I researched the company, the owners, the concept and scoured the Internet for exact definitions of coworking. You see, I’m a Gen Y, a Millennial, the first generation to grow up with technology constantly available at our fingertips. This was a bit of a game changer for how we went about searching…
