Our supporting local Christmas packages are up!

Our supporting local Christmas packages are up! We thought it might be nice to reach out to some local businesses to see if they wanted to participate and this is what we came back with. Christmas can be a challenging time for small businesses. And we know many people look elsewhere when purchasing. Sometimes we don't even know what products are in our own communities. So we thought, why not make it more convenient and put together some packages from those businesses right in our own bac...

Supporting those you know

I recently had a similar conversation with a few different people inquiring about ‘how I got started’, (and how they can get started). So I thought my story short story might be worth sharing. I came back to visit family in between season and traveling the globe. I needed to make money, so I decided to start fitness classes. I really didn’t know how to use social media at the time (only 10 years ago…imagine :)), so my only form of advertising was posters and word of mouth. I timidly told ...

We Never Close

We like to support local as much as possible, however I noticed just recently that a couple type of local market stores are only open on certain days for certain hours. No judgement here, I mean who knows what they are going through. Maybe they can't afford to staff for example. But I do find it hard to stop in and support them when they are only open a few days a week for certain hours. I also know some of the retails stores have new restrictions at least for the moment, which can be...

Living in a Supportive Environment

Anyway you look at it, living in a supportive environment can positively affects the way we live. Criminals usually hang our with criminals, athlete usually hang out with athletes and those in the knitting club, well... usually knit together. You can tell by the clothes you wear, the words you use, the accent you grew up around, there's no denying it, we are creatures of our environment. Thoughts become things, things become actions and what we see on a constant and continual basis is what...
