The symbolism behind this video was inspired by the 3rd, the 4th, and then the 5th piece of business that fell by the wayside last week. As the emails of regret kept tumbling in, I realized that businesses of all shapes and sizes were in for a hell of a ride as the world came to grips with COVID-19
But instead of indulging in R.E.M’s, “It’s the End of the World as We Know It”, I got inspired and concocted this quick little video in support of the local business community that I’ve quickly grown very fond of.
Additionally, I put on my barter cap and hired a local contractor to paint our newly erected fence in exchange for some promotional video and stills for their new website.
I encourage all of us to use this time to get creative and support our local economies. Support the people who have worked long and hard to contribute to our community’s growth and prosperity.
No matter where you live, now’s the perfect time to Think Local First!
