During 2013 the Greater Memphis Chamber formed the Chairman’s Circle, a group of over 100 Memphis business leaders organized to push for action on key issues to accelerate the regional economy.

Fueled by a demand for the specialized services it provides, Memphis-based consulting firm Caissa Public Strategy has expanded with the opening of a new office in the nation’s capital.

Caissa founder Brian Stephens said the reason for the expansion there isn’t necessarily obvious.

7. Greenline to Keep Growing in 2013 -

In the coming year, the Shelby Farms Greenline could move a bit farther west from Tillman Street, where it now ends, to the Poplar Avenue viaduct with a goal of linking up with the Broad Avenue Arts District.

8. Grassroots Effort -

Approaching the second anniversary of “New Face for an Old Broad” and the Historic Broad Avenue Business Association’s painting of its own bike lanes, the Binghampton district has seen activity increase exponentially on several fronts.

9. Return on Investment -

Most people already know some of the basic elements of the banking business. From the large national lenders with a Memphis presence to the community banks in the suburbs, one common element is they make money by charging borrowers more than the bank pays in interest to depositors.

13. Vote With Your Investments Too -

Ray’s Take: People get passionate about politics, but you only get to cast your ballot in elections a time or two a year at the most. Of course, there are other ways to be involved in politics in order to have a little more influence on things. Or, you can put your money where your politics lean and vote with your investments all year long.

14. On the Right Path -

Greenlines, greenbelts and greenways are already under way and are expected to grow and converge across the city in the years to come.

And while property owners should see increasing values as the Shelby Farms Greenline and other green assets become community fixtures and expand throughout the area, so far the depressed housing market is keeping all property values – no matter their location – in check.

15. A Bridge to Cross -

Martyrs Park sits atop the Chickasaw Bluff and overlooks the Mississippi River, its lone modern sculpture a memorial to victims of the 19th century Yellow Fever epidemics that devastated Memphis from the 1850s through the 1870s.

16. Getting Over It -

Getting over the big divide.

Outside, it was a beautiful spring day. Inside, it was a dark afternoon in engineering science lab. In front of me was a pile of balsa wood, popsicle sticks, string, rubber bands and a slide rule. The assignment – design and build a bridge. At that moment – while I was trying to figure out whether the number on my slide rule was 10,000, 100,000 or 10 million, while those around me began to conquer canyons with their popsicle sticks – at that moment I knew I would not be an architect.

Develop and promote a citywide mentoring campaign. We must heavily invest in the positive development of our children. Many of our Memphis children suffer not from a material poverty, but a poverty of healthy relationships and ultimately a poverty of possibility – of reaching their full potential. Each of us has had supportive network of mentors (“the village”) in our lives, be they our parents, teachers or friends, that have come along side of us to build our self-esteem and to help us navigate a path that moves us closer to realizing our potential.
