The Rakos Agency, Inc.

RakosAs an Allstate agent living in the Lynchburg / Bedford area for nearly my entire life, I know many of the issues that are important in our community. Our family has worked closely with Allstate for nearly 30 years offering a quality, service-oriented commitment to every customer. I look forward to helping families like yours protect the things that are important to you.

I’m proud to say I work with a financially sound and stable company like Allstate. They’ve been helping to protect families and their assets since 1931. Today, you can choose from more than auto and home insurance. You can also find products that can help you with your financial goals.

As a small business owner, I understand the importance of building a solid foundation for the future and developing long-lasting customer relationships. That’s why I’m committed to offering you the same level of service I’d expect from my own business dealings. When you leave my office, I hope you’ll feel confident, informed, assured and satisfied in your choices. The way you should feel.

Academy Center of the Arts

NEW_ACOA_logo_colorPMSWe are a multi-facility arts center and want to share this through our name. The word center also illustrates that we are the center of arts activity in our community, much like the former Lynchburg Fine Arts Center. We are a place for community building, with facilities and offerings that include the performing arts, the visual arts, pottery and education. This name also prepares us for a future when we will be a multi-theatre facility with the addition of the historic Academy Theatre.

Along with our new name, our new logo sends a message of energy, accessibility, and inclusion to our patrons, donors, and constituents. Our website is now .org instead of .com, to illustrate our dedication to service. We are first and foremost here to make our community a better place, serving our fellow citizens through arts and culture.

Through specific arts programming, The Academy Center of the Arts looks to provide educational resources and community enrichment through arts initiatives to our underserved population. This arts activity is multifaceted. Some of the programming serves as an educational resource, some improves public safety and sparks economic development, but all improves the quality of life for our local community.

Make sure to come see us! Our organization is in the heart of downtown Lynchburg. We hope that it is a hub for all things beauty and art for the city of Lynchburg.

Strategic Referral Team

Strategic ReferralStrategic Referral Team is what networking groups wish they could be.  Our teams don’t build relationships to profit off of one another. We build genuine professional relationships that naturally produce profitable referrals. At each of the weekly meetings, we learn a bit more about each team member, what makes each business unique, and the types of referrals they specifically desire. But the meetings are merely the start of profitable relationships. We encourage team members to meet outside of meetings and create powerful strategic alliances with a few other members. Then, they bring that synergy back to the meeting and the cycle continues. You really should see it.

We also feature a members-only component of Strategic Referral Team that is worth more than the price of admission, all by itself.  Our co-founders, Mike Cook and New York Times bestselling author Mike Garrison, conduct engaging live and online training to transform your business. Plus, if that isn’t enough, you get access to the members-only portal of this website (look at the top right, next to the “Apply For Membership” button) where you’ll have access to a massive library of resources and tools custom-designed in-house by our own team here at Strategic Referral Team.

Flavored Flavors

Flavored FlavorsAt Favored Flavors we offer Flavor Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars.  We also offer Flavor Infused Sea Salts, Sugars, and a variety of Peppercorns.  The shop is all about tasting the products, so please don’t be shy about trying new things to find out what flavors work best for you and your cooking style! We also encourage mixing and matching flavors right there in the shop to see what tantalizes your taste buds.

Come in and taste life to the fullest!

Community Mission Financial

Community Mission FinancialWe spent our formative years differently. But all of us came to banking for the same desire: to provide for our families through community service. We found success this way. We built names you might recognize: Ashley Carter, John Gobble, and Laurel Cartwright. But over the last decade, each co-founder became increasingly convinced that, in this economic time, true service is difficult to achieve within a traditional banking model.

In 2015, a moment came when this perception became too large to ignore. So we launched a millennial company that can directly serve the communities we love. CMF can provide almost any banking service. It also enables us to enjoy the deep consultative relationships we have worked hard to build over the years. But at the same time, it eliminates the regulatory politics of a brick and mortar. This streamlined company, this new kind of bank, has agility that a traditional bank sometimes lacks. And with this agility comes one question. How can CMF work for you?
