Happy Thursday Redondo! Thank you for all of you who responded to my post yesterday. It is a nice feeling to know that there are other local business owners being supportive, and feeling the same way. Many of you also have some great ideas about increasing awareness to the community to help support small businesses. I enjoy the Chamber meetings and all of the people, however when it's all said and done, I have a bunch of cards, and not much was actually produced from the interaction. You all know what i mean. Our Chambers are very supportive and do care. They bring us all together, however, it is my opinion that we are at fault for not making more of it. This is all due to our mindset as we attend these functions, and that needs to change. i have some ideas that may be able to help businesses cross promote more effectively. I would like to host a dinner meeting where we can strategically plan how to accomplish our goals. I want this meeting to be focused and precise. Don't worry, we will have fun once the work is done! I will contact our Chambers as well. I am planning on having this meeting in October. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a wonderful week everyone!
