You may ask why I am pursuing this? Two reasons really. The first is how much I enjoyed being a mentor to four high school students as they created a business plan last year and presented it as part of the Bright Lights program sponsored by Cuming County Economic Development. The students in our county are very talented, and what surprised me the most was the way they weren’t afraid to jump in and get started learning and doing things. We truly are blessed. Our young people are amazing! The second reason is that my other businesses are in need of ongoing help with our websites from time to time. So I understand exactly where local businesses are coming from when they want local website help. We want someone who can do a great job… and someone local that we know will be around next week, next year, or five years from now.
