Last week, we were interviewed over on Urban Escapee, where the tagline is “Ditch the Commute, Build a Business, & Revitalize Main Street.”
It’s pretty easy to see why we were so excited to be featured there:
Ditch the commute. Check. Ainslie no longer travels about an hour a day, and I sure don’t mind giving up my old commute. When I added up my time on the road, I found I gained approximately 40 hours of life back PER MONTH.
Build a business. Even though some folks think we are crazy, we moved Vintage Karma 800 miles away to a small Midwestern town to expand and offer retail online and in person.
Revitalize Main Street. We’re both excited to be part of what Tuscola is creating! We opened here in April, and more changes are coming to Sale Street with a fitness business, coffee shop and home decor store on the way.
We discovered the Urban Escapee site through our friend James, who was nice enough to introduce us to Katie, a small business owner and the voice behind Urban Escapee. She is also writing a book, and is the author of
The manifesto has lots of food for thought in it about community, small businesses, the environment and rural/small town living. A good read filled with beautitful photos. You can get it here, and it’s free!
