One of the things I love about being a blogger is the community we build together. Often these communities overlap each other based on similar interests, and our words are able to spread and reach many more than we ever thought possible.
Among these communities I have a special love for the small business. As individuals, we work so hard to take our passions and turn them in successful businesses and the support we get from others is crucial to that success.
About one month ago I visited a local small business that was hosting the Arizona Blogger Meetup, called Clothes Minded. There I met the wonderful Kim, owner of the store. She was such a warm, caring individual, and she shared with the group how she dreamed of her store since she was just a child and how excited she was to finally see it to fruition.
It’s really inspiring!
I have only recently found my own calling within the small business world and when I think of the profound feelings I have for it, I can barely wrap it around my head how it must feel for Kim to open her doors each day and see people come to her store and enjoy all the wonderful items she has to offer.
It’s kind of magical, I think!
But in all seriousness, it’s very cool. When someone buys an outfit from a local designer at Clothes Minded, it’s a two-fold win for our economy, and there is little better than boosting our economy.
