Back in 1982, when I incorporated my small business as an advertising agency, I never thought that my next creation would develop into The Resident Good News. When the economy changed in 1990, my marketing instincts told me that what our two-state region needed was a publication that focused on good news about people doing good things in our communities.
As a U.S. Army-trained journalist, I knew how to write stories and capture events on camera and that my clients from Alexis Advertising, Incorporated, would give me a leg up with their support on my new venture.
Now, with 31 years in the trenches as an entrepreneur, I reflect back on the ups and the downs and ponder reasons for success. I’ve concluded that the single most important mission is helping others to shine! Today, there are many women in the workplace who started out much the same as I did, and you can see them on these very pages. Ingenuity and imagination–and a lot of hard work–have fostered these entrepreneurial achievements. They coexist with community and civic honors.
