Local Businesses are Struggling More Than Ever

A couple years ago were coming across the border from Montana to Alberta and the roads were atrocious. Honestly I’ve never driven in conditions this bad, it was a complete white out, cars in the ditch, accidents, etc. We were going so slow we could have been sitting still but you couldn’t stop because the people behind wouldn’t see us. You couldn’t pull over, because it was too easy to drive in the ditch. We finally made it to the border, checked in to this little motel, and somehow foun...

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.

Of course when ordering in mass bulk many of their products are purchased for pennies & sold f...

Less transport shipments = more supporting local.People quitting their jobs = more entrepreneurship. More entrepreneurship means more people following their purpose.More censorship = new platforms opening up. New platforms means one platform like Google/Facebook, etc, has less power.School boards crashing = more home schooling, and more communities raising children. Less government involve...

In Considering Buying Gifts for the Holidays

I thought about something the other day and I feel like it's more relevant than ever with that big C word coming up quickly with some who have already purchased most of their gifts. In many cases price plays a major factor in deciding whether to buy or not. And I understand that's it's important to consider price but I also wanted to explain what it's like from the other side, maybe for those who create and produce products and services. In most cases, when you take an entrepreneur o...
