At Cincy Business, we understand the life of a business professional doesn’t end at 5 p.m. That’s why we offer Executive Living, which focuses on what business professionals do — and enjoy — outside their offices.

As our magazine has grown, so has this section, and tremendous reader feedback has led us to explore how professionals in your neighborhood decorate their homes, relax after work, and stay in shape.

In some issues of Executive Living we take a closer look at Tristate communities and real estate that are growing in size or value; beginning on page 89 you can explore life in West Chester and Liberty townships.

In other editions we highlight home trends, such as upscale outdoor living. This month we feature what’s new and popular locally for home entertainment, including home theaters and iPod-based audio systems.

Elsewhere in this August Executive Living you’ll read about a P&G manager’s passionate pursuit of home carpentry. Our “Getaways” travel section might entice you into a weekend trip to mountain resort areas that are cool (literally) and within reach with just a day’s drive from Cincinnati.

This month Focus on Health looks at the importance of physical therapy in recovering from nagging aches caused by athletic weekend excursions or hours of sitting at your desk.

Summer’s always a great time to get out and about, and our Weekender section is a helpful guide to some of the best leisure and arts activities coming up locally. Want to know who attended this month’s business parties and events? Check out Cincy Scene. This month includes two pages devoted to the first Cincy Business “Manny Awards” event, which honors local leaders in manufacturing.
