Editor’s Note: This video episode was created by Tim Jahn, a longtime Chicago TECH cocktailer and storyteller who produces the online video series, Beyond The Pedway focused on better telling the local business stories in Chicago. You can follow Tim on Twitter: @timjahn.
In this interview, I’m chatting with Theresa Carter of The Local Tourist, a website that provides entertainment, dining, nightlife, restaurants, and other information about Chicago to those living in the city and those looking to visit.
Theresa started the site after moving to Chicago herself and not knowing where any restaurants or bars or theaters or anything was. The Local Tourist began as a business directory and eventually evolved into a destination site for Chicagoans looking to find what was going on in town, as well as people visting Chicago looking for the best things to do.
Theresa and I also chat about what it takes to start your own business and what skills are most important when doing so.
