Why Local Matters

OK~ The word local can mean many different things, yet in all reality it boils down to working with those around you. This can be sharing tips in regards to social media, attending a festival in your community, shopping in a locally owned store, eating in a local restaurant, or even attending a high school sporting event. These are just a few ways that you can see how local participation does matter.

When I attend a blogging conference I love the fact that those around me "get" me! They share the same passions that I do, as we all want to succeed as bloggers. When we reach out to others in our local communities, we are not only helping ourselves, but most of all; we are helping others succeed! What a fantastic feeling to know that it is possible to leave a positive footprint in our local communities.

Are you reaching out to those around you or waiting for that "other" person to approach you? Well, here is your kick in the pants. Get out in your local community and make a difference. Once you connect with others that "get" you and your passion of wanting to succeed, your business has the opportunity to make a turn for the better.

Local does matter and it's up to you to be a part of it. Jump in and see how far you can go. Once you take that leap, the open doorways are endless. Are you making an impact on a local level or are you waiting for someone to make it happen for you? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this and what it takes to be a mover and a shaker in your community.

Local for this Mom in the next couple months will be attending Iowa high school trap shooting events, connecting local businesses with bloggers, sharing social media with local businesses, shopping in locally owned stores, and attending a high school graduation. Kind of fun, huh? After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
