About Us

The Business Journal is published monthly by Inspired Media LLC in Denham Springs, Louisiana, and presents business and community news and feature stories about the area. The Business Journal is distributed free at newsstands throughout the Zachary area and Point Coupee Parish (click here to see pickup locations).

The Journal was first published by Arceneaux Communications in August 2005. In May 2014, Inspired Media acquired the Journal which, most recently, was published as the Business Journal North. Inspired Media also publishes The Livingston Business Journal which covers Livingston Parish, and other specialty publications such as Chamber directories. Margot May helped conceive the idea for the Journals and has served as graphic designer, marketing and sales director, and public relations representative. She currently serves as associate publisher and creative director for The Journal-Zachary/Pointe Coupee and the Livingston Business Journal.
