Owning and running a small business anywhere is not necessarily something I envy but certainly respect. FeedTacoma Shops (more on that later) is one way I've chosen to help out but there are some great films and shows out there for viewing that are doing their part. Tonight and tomorrow you can catch some student films covering various local businesses at Jazzbones. The project comes from Lynnette Claire's class in the University of Puget Sound's Business and Leadership program and is a great way for students to get exposure to some great local entrepreneurs.
You can also tune in to TV Tacoma at various times this month to watch a CityScape piece about the Sixth Ave. Business District and why, as the City's website mentions, it's "the place to be." Starting April 16, they'll also be airing an episode of Business Matters featuring my boss at SiteCrafting Brian Forth.
Thanks to all the folks out there thinking creatively about getting these films made for our businesses and districts at little or no cost to them! These are great examples of how skills, rather than just $$, can help lift our community up.

|I remember taking that class from Lynette back when it was first offered - glad to see it's still going!|

|Lynette Claire is an awesome resourse for anyone interested in starting or fine-tuning a business. She's usually looking for local businesses to partner up with some students for the purpose of addressing business problems. The help is free and you'll get a great report back from the students.|

|Yea, it sounds like an awesome student experience/community service to provide.|
Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
