I am thrilled to present our April issue themed “Small Business Owners.” In this edition, we feature several inspiring individuals who have turned their passions into successful small businesses. Our goal is to showcase the diverse range of businesses in our community and to highlight the hard work and determination that goes into starting and running a small business. Plus, it’s a great way to get to know the people behind the brand.
In addition to our feature stories, I invite you to check out the Artist Corner where you can learn about the talented artists in our community. Supporting local arts is an important part of our mission, and we are proud to provide a platform for them to discuss their work and their stories.
I also want to take a moment to share some changes happening with the magazine. We are no longer able to offer printed publications for free at the library, but we are still offering print subscriptions for just $55 a year. The digital version of the magazine will continue to be free and available on our website.
This change allows us to focus on expanding our podcast interviews, which are available on YouTube and several podcast platforms. (Just search for Locala Podcast.) This is an exciting opportunity for us to bring our readers even more in-depth and engaging stories without needing to worry about that pesky word count. I really think you will love it. So make sure to follow us wherever you consume your podcasts!
We are constantly striving to bring you the best content and to support our community, and we are grateful for your support. Thank you for being a part of our journey, and we look forward to sharing more with you in the future.
