Although Punxsutawney Phil recently predicted that spring is just around the corner, two weeks ago, milk, bread and batteries were scarce commodities in Memphis, as the city braced for a winter storm of epic proportions. Fortunately, the snow bluffed. The season is not yet over, however, and it is never too late (or too early) for employers to take steps to winterize their policies to help insulate themselves from liability and costs.
Making Memphis beautiful is a family tradition for Robin Smithwick. 
Robert “Robin” Smithwick III is managing principal of the Memphis office of Diversified Trust, a comprehensive wealth management firm which provides investment, trust and financial advisory services to families and institutions. He also helms the Greater Memphis Chamber Chairman’s Circle moon mission to advance green space for citizens here.
Small business owners have their unique world of pain and problems. You may not have known it, but new terms have come to describe them. If you have had difficulty finding the right words, check this list:
David Underwood moved around a lot growing up, living in several states due to his father’s occupation, but Memphis caught his attention. Underwood enrolled at the University of Memphis. He was in logistics, so Memphis was certainly a place of opportunity in his field. But Chicago and Atlanta offered possibilities, too. So he and his wife, who’d moved around a lot also, considered their options thoroughly, finally deciding Memphis would be home. “Why move again?” the Underwoods asked themselves. “Everything we want is here.”
Starting on February 1st, the Memphis-Shelby County Office of Sustainability is launching a new campaign to help local individuals and groups cut energy and water use, reduce waste and be better stewards of the environment. 
Elizabeth Rouse evolved into the role of cheerleader for the Memphis arts community. As a transplant born in Mobile, Ala., her mother put her in ballet, but Rouse wanted to watch the graceful dance, not perform it. She moved to the Bluff City nine years ago for a job with ArtsMemphis, not expecting to stay forever. But she discovered a buffet of artistry here. She fell in love with the city and its talent.
Think of the best job you ever had (and yes, it can be your current position). What made it amazing? Was it the type of work you did? The people? The location? Salary? Any number of things combined can make a workplace great, but there’s one thing above all else that matters most to the majority of employees: happiness.
Green spaces are helping cities attract new, green dollars into their economies and helping them keep the ones they already have. The Mid-South’s “ambitious” Greenprint plan may be one of the biggest such projects in the country.
