The Charleston Regional Business Journal provides news and information for the Lowcountry of South Carolina with digital and print publications and supplements throughout the year. CRBJ is an intersection between businesses and consumers and keeps the news local. This publication has been a media supporter of the Good Business Summit for several years, and for that we are grateful.

We touched base with Andy Owens, the managing editor, who shared insider information on being a GoodBiz in the Lowcountry.

 

What is the driving force behind your business/ organization?
Making connections with people. When the Business Journal does what it does best, it serves as a vehicle for business by
connecting customers and vendors who need each other to grow the regional economy.

What is the best business advice you never got?
You have to be able to say “No,” and knowing when to do it strategically can save your company time and money, boost morale and increase your bottom line even though it might not feel like it when you say “No” the first time.

What does being a “good business” mean to your company?
Service. We serve our readers, our advertisers, our employees, our families, our community and everything in between. It’s
that simple.

What are you most looking forward to with this year’s Good Business Summit?
We’re looking forward to discovering the ideas that have emerged since the last Summit and the entrepreneurial energy that surrounds everything involving the Good Business Summit.
