~ ask and they will come ~

Hello friends..
Last spring I was enjoying our lovely Warrenton Spring Fair and I met a man at one of the vendor booths.
Turns out he was a reporter for the local county newspaper, The Fauquier Times Democrat. I introduced myself and told him I was opening a new shop on Main Street and he was going to want to interview me.
Yeah...I'm pushy that way!
Well guess what?
a couple of days ago he dropped by The Empty Nest and wanted to interview me!!!!
He did a wonderful job describing the real essence of my shop.
Thanks Don Del Rosso!

So I say to my fellow business owners...
don't wait to be discovered...go out there and drag those reporters in!!!
It just might pay off.
Until next kind and stay creative.
