A few months ago Jess Roth, our then Community Development Director at The TOP attended Radiate Phoenix and immediately was inspired once again by the movement to keep supporting local. As a native Phoenician she loves all things Phoenix based. Restaurants, Coffee Shops, Retail Stores, the list goes on and on. Keeping our money in Arizona is so important for our local economy. Did you know that coworking is also a great way to keep it local? Of course, The TOP is a local business... But more than that, we are supporting 50 local businesses and counting. We are providing resources to grow, network and promote local entrepreneurs. We have our own little garden of local greatness here. I encourage you to seek out ways to utilize each others goods and services.
Is your insurance through a local firm? Your portfolio planning? Where do you workout? Who does your taxes? Next, ask yourself the real question...Where is your money going for these services? Why can't it stay here with local businesses? IT CAN. The very community you are a part of can provide these services for you. Just ask!
If you are not familiar with the Local First movement, I encourage you to join this great community. At The Office Pile, we are a part of Phoenix. We are a part of you.
