What’s Our WHY? Help us shape our answer.
As we prepare for our Eat Indie Local campaign, we want to dive into our WHY.
“Every business can easily state ‘what’ they do. Most can articulate ‘how they do it,’— but few businesses know ‘why’ they exist.” ~ Simon Sinek
“Your why is the foundation—poured concrete marking the permanent shape of what will become a house—built up with choices in how to move forward and with what tools and fixtures. Your vision for what’s built on top or placed inside may change with time, much like the shutter’s paint or the fixture’s finish is altered over the years, but the foundation won’t change. It’s from here, your concrete foundation—your unique why—that you’ll make plans for your business or organization’s work ahead.
~ Diane Sontum, The Local Crowd
