I love shopping local. It’s my thing.
I live in a thriving downtown area in my city. I want it to stay thriving. That’s why I eat at local restaurants, get my coffee at local coffee shops and shop at local stores.
There is a great boutique store that opened a few months ago that’s a few blocks from me. I frequent it a lot these days because the owner is hilarious and she’s such a savvy businesswoman I love dropping by and hearing her talk.
Today we discussed her social media and web presence. She has as a Facebook page but her social media presence isn’t robust. I can help her change that very easily. And in exchange I’ll get wine for free.
It’s not every day that I agree to an exchange like this, but it certainly works for me.
