Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Mediation and Beyond!
Four questions with Colleen ONeil, founder of Mediation and Beyond.
Why did you start your business?
I started my business because I’m divorced. My story is not one that I wanted others to experience and am passionate about changing the culture of divorce. Families can do better and deserve better.
What is your best selling product/service?
Individuals get wisdom from personal experience, knowledge from years of training, and understanding that we do the work until we get it right for your family. We are unique in that we continue to support you long after the ink is dry on your divorce papers. What agreed to may not work out as you thought it would and we stick with you until you and your family are living with the least amount of conflict.
How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?
I use certified divorce financial planners, financial analysts, therapists, life and divorce coaches, educators, personal trainers, realtors, insurance agents. Getting divorced takes a quality tribe. At Mediation and Beyond, we have the resources you need. Call anytime and I will gladly share what individuals would be best for your situation.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
I have! I created a YouTube channel during the pandemic to stay connected to other professionals and to utilize that platform to interview people all over the world about relationships, family, divorce, and conversations that matter. Check us out!
Colleen and Mediation and Beyond happily nominate Sabita Holistic Center in Westport!
