An article about YIKES, the buildings and Tracy & Mia appeared on the front page of the Business section of the Sunday, July 3rd Philadelphia Inquirer.
We loved the article and the pictures. To quote our friend Vicky (formerly of YIKES), “Great article… I love how Mia’s now on record as being ‘scared.'”
This week’s video features Leanne Krueger-Braneky, Executive Director, and Katie Bennett, Membership Associate, of the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia (SBN). The SBN is a 500+ member business organization (YIKES is a proud member of) that brings together local leaders who share an interest in running successful companies that have a positive social and environmental impact.
Thanks, Leanne and Katie, for participating on our blog!
