Hello, everyone, I’m John Ray. I’m the owner of the North Fulton Business RadioX® studio and host of “North Fulton Business Radio” and “Alpharetta Tech Talk.” I just wanted to give you an update on what’s happening with us here in North Fulton. I’ve spoken with all the hosts of our various shows and they agree with me that there is important work for us to do right now in the current environment we find ourselves in. We need to be sharing the stories of the courageous and tireless work that business owners and entrepreneurs are doing. And we need to share advice and help and encouragement and inspiration and do so in the way that Business RadioX® has always done, giving folks a forum to tell their stories without interruption and unfiltered, and allow our listeners to hear the warmth and passion in their voice when they do that. So you’ll be hearing from us, and as we capture these stories, it’s just our “new normal,” if you will, that’s a little bit different.
A couple of days ago, we decided that from a safety point of view, we needed to relocate the studio out of Renasant Bank and operate virtually. And since that time, Renasant, like quite a few other banks has announced appointment only access to their branches for bank customers. Their drive-ins, by the way, continue to be open for business. We’ve got a couple more shows to post that were done prior to relocating, but from here on, we’ll be doing virtual interviews with our guest. We’ve already done several, which we’ll be posting soon. So we will continue to fulfill the mission that my other Business RadioX studio partners and I are committed to, and that is serving as the voice of business in our community. So stay in touch with us. Subscribe on your favorite podcast app. Let us hear from you. Comment if you like what we’re doing. You know, friends, hope is not false optimism. Hope does not discount challenges. Hope is clear-eyed realism, I think, mixed with the knowledge that opportunities to pivot and to grow present themselves in challenging times. So stay hopeful, be engaged, encourage each other and be safe. God bless you.

Renasant Bank has humble roots, starting in 1904 as a $100,000 bank in a Lee County, Mississippi, bakery.

All of Renasant’s success stems from each of their banker’s commitment to investing in their communities as a way of better understanding the people they serve.
