“I am an explorer by nature, and I love to visit new places and learn about what makes them unique. But at home, it is all too easy to get caught up in the routine of daily life and miss out on the unique aspects of my own community that can be found just around the corner. One of my favorite local shops closed a number of years ago, and I still feel a sense of loss whenever I see the franchise that took its place. At that time, I made a commitment to support locally owned businesses whenever possible to ensure that they continue to thrive. But, it takes more than just one person, so I encourage my friends and family to do the same. Together, we can build our sense of community by supporting local businesses, and that feels good. In turn, a thriving community will support us all, and that feels great!”
