I'm a big believer supporting small business owners because they have created some awesome products or businesses and let's be honest, they are really great people too. My mission to help the small business owners get the love they deserve and for you to get the chance to meet them. Learn about their dreams, struggles, and what they enjoy doing when they are not running the business.

Community stories!

Although I lived in Palm Harbor for about a year I never really explored all the small gems that were within this town. Now that I am commuting here more for work, I have the opportunity to connect with the people here and I have more time to stop at the local coffee stops and such. I really appreciate how Donnie is connecting with local small business owners and allowing them tell their beautiful story!
