Local Proud is all about telling the stories of business owners and what motivated them to become an Entrepreneur.
Have you ever sat down and talked with a local business owner and heard their story of how their business came to life? Well, we have and we've been inspired to tell their stories. Having worked all across America helping locally owned business for the last 20 years, we have heard these stories and now we're going to share them with you.
These local businesses aren’t just “moms and pops.” They’re all about family—brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, cousins, neighbors, friends and DREAMS—all the people who make this a wonderful place to live. They’re scout leaders, volunteers, youth sports coaches. They’re the folks who sing in the church choir, rescue animals and help feed the less fortunate.
Help us spread the word and be inspired! You can support this movement and help revitalize our local economy by shopping at store owned by your friends and neighbors. Buy their products. Use their services. Spread the word. In turn, these locally-owned and operated businesses will continually put the money you spend with them back into the local economy by way of taxes, payrolls and other purchases.
And soon you'll be able to help us tell these stories. Local Proud will soon launch its first crowd-funding campaign that will help inspire us to keep this dream alive. And lets face it, being an Entrepreneur is all about living a dream... once you catch the spirit of living the dream... it's impossible to stop!
So tell us... what's your story?
