Greater Together Podcast


Join me as I ask local business founders hard questions about how they’ve grown their businesses and themselves, personally. I asked the same 3 questions of entrepreneurs from all walks of life, with businesses ranging from just over a year to almost a decade old. I hoped they would have insights that could help us all - and they delivered! They all have insights into what success really takes, and how we can all be Greater Together.

I hope you enjoy this season and gain your own insights to fuel your success!

Episode 8 – Watershed Distillery

I had a great time talking shop with Greg Lehman, Owner of Watershed Distillery.  His story is an inspiring story about how plans can change along an entrepreneurial journey. Being open to change and letting others help you is key in so many of the stories this season, but I think I saved one of the best for last, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Episode 7 – Phoenix Consulting

Episode 7’s Toni Teague Bell is a writer, producer, on-air talent and founder of Phoenix Consulting Company, a performance consulting firm that designs and facilitates trainings, retreats and symposia.

Working with corporations, non-profits and universities, Toni has inspired thousands. She sat down with me to share some wisdom and advice from her 18+ year entrepreneurial journey – enjoy!

Episode 6 – Shatter

GiveBackHack is an event near & dear to my heart, and it’s also where Sarah Woods accidentally started her company, Shatter. Based on a powerful idea of how to help women shatter the glass ceiling, the Shatter story may just inspire you to turn your passion into a business, too.


Episode 5 – Robinson Legal Group

An entrepreneurial lawyer specializing in entrepreneurial law, that’s Episode 5’s Demetrius Robinson, founder of Robinson Legal Group. Demetrius talks about his love of his job, his enthusiasm for helping entrepreneurs, when he started hiring specialists, and when you should reach out to a lawyer on your own entrepreneurial journey.

Episode 2 features Branden & Bruce Jones, the co-founders of BLK Hack, a social enterprise network that helps African American entrepreneurs and people of color grow, nurture, and scale their businesses by providing access to an engaged and supportive entrepreneurial ecosystem. Hear how BLK Hack fills a need that they themselves encountered on their entrepreneurial journey and how they’ve grown in the years since their first business pitch.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Episode 1 – Haven

Episode 1 premiers on SEPTEMBER 9th!
I’m thrilled to announce that my first guest on the very first episode of Greater Together is my dear friend Melissa Blackburn, Co-Founder of Haven. It’s hard to believe we met almost a decade ago, while we were both still working for a company, instead of for ourselves. Haven Collective is a GREAT co-working space on Riverside Drive, and they will be expanding to downtown in just a couple months! Hear what she has to say about her entrepreneurial journey and lessons learned along the way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀



Greater Together is Hosted By Rachyl Kershaw, Founder of Greater Columbus Consulting.

I started Greater Columbus Consulting to help small businesses and non-profits become successful and sustainable. What I quickly found was that many entrepreneurs don't feel that they have the time or money to bring in others to help them, so I created the Greater Together Podcast to let entrepreneurs tell you their own stories, in their own words, and talk about not only their businesses, but also the network of friends, supporters, mentors and experts that figured in along the way. I hope the podcast sheds some light on how you can focus in on the talents and experiences that make you uniquely positioned to run your organization, while allowing others in, because while we are all capable of greatness, we are also all Greater Together.
