Positively Pittsburgh Live, Pittsburgh Business As Usual

The premise of this show is that Pittsburgh is doing Business as Usual and that many firms are either steady, growing or hiring or at least two out of three.

Today, Eva owns and operates ESSPA Inc., a Dayspa and Skincare company that had revenues over $1.9 million in 2008 (a 20% increase over 2007) with 15 treatment rooms in 5,000 sq.ft. and over 30+ employees. She is regarded as one of the top experts in the country on organic spa treatments for children and teens. And to top it off, her spa was just named the "Best Green Spa" by Pittsburgh Magazine (April 2009) and was voted "3rd Best Spa in America" by The Industry Source Magazine (Nov.'08).
Boasts 10% growth over last year.

J. Douglas Austin; Vice President
James Austin Company

In 1889, Mollie Austin asked her husband James if he knew of a better rug cleaner, James decided to make his own cleaner. After many versions, and Mollie's approval Austin's Carpet Cleaner was born. Cooking the formula on the kitchen stove, James sold his product out of his Pittsburgh, PA grocery store. By word of mouth, others asked for Austin's Carpet Cleaner; planting the seed for what is today a fourth generation family company that manufactures a wide variety of household and institutional cleaning products.
Certainly Mollie and James would be proud of today's fourth generation of Austin's who still uphold the family motto:
"Produce quality products for people and they'll come back."
Business is steady and Austin’s is hiring.

• Best month ever in March!
• People are looking for the best value, not just the lowest price.
• People seem to be stepping up their understanding of their personal financial situation and taking an active role instead of a passive one.
• Our region has some unique qualities and instead of worrying about what we are not, we need to capitalize on what we are.
• People who have not lived elsewhere don't realize how unique and wonderful Pittsburgh is - and that every city/region has problems. The grass is NOT greener elsewhere!
