True story for ya: I LOVE community! My business was literally born from my desire to provide a creative service to help other small businesses grow! I am a local small biz myself and I started a decade ago with nothing but a camera. No marketing budget, no assistant, no investors, no guidance. I have worn all the hats and learned through a TON of mistakes along the way. I am so familiar with many of the struggles, but I could never have prepared for the Covid-19 struggle we are all living in. My business came to a sudden halt & slammed head first into a brick wall. All of my momentum was instantly stopped and my months (if not years) of behind the scenes hard work felt useless. I KNOW I am not alone in this feeling. Right now our community of small businesses needs us more than ever. I wanted to do what I could with the platform I have… My blog & social. So, please follow these businesses & individuals, engage with them on social, share their posts and if you need their product or service, purchase directly from them.<3
