Memphis Fit »
In every issue of Memphis Crossroads Magazine, we highlight one special business that displays that entrepreneurial spirit that just shines from Memphis. In our Spring 2014 issue, Toby Sells spent some time with Clark Butcher and Robert Taylor who opened Victory Bicycle Studios in 2010. Despite some issues that set the business back a bit, they are now stronger than ever in a new location on Broad Avenue doing what they do best - and what they do best is cycling.

If you're a cyclist - avid or newbie, Victory Bicycle Studios can get you fitted with the gear you need. Once you're set, why not try one of these three trails that Butcher and Taylor promise will be worth the ride.

Sometimes, when climbing the leadership mountain, it's good to know how to find footholds.

Oh, the vision statement. You know what I’m talking about. That you-can-do-it statement painted on the break room wall that gets more coffee stains than attention.

If we’re going to be honest, usually that sentence is so jam-packed with marketing fluff that no one is even sure what it means, much less how it applies to the company. And don’t even get me started on how dreadfully long it is – if it gets any longer you’re going to need a bigger break room wall (and a nap). 

In order to clear up your vision, you need to clean up your language. Here are five business-babble words that you need to stop using right now.

One of the strategic initiatives used in the modern business world is the increasingly popular employee wellness plan. Healthcare costs continue to rise. Some of this is attributable to the health effects of near-epidemic level obesity and stress from our fast-paced lives. In response to this trend, many employers are bringing what was once considered “personal stuff” into the workplace. Employee wellness plans vary greatly and may include things as simple as offering perks to employees who participate in medical questionnaires, to more advanced offerings such as on-site smoking cessation classes, personal trainers, and company-sponsored health food catering.
