My company, Yellowbird Marketing Solutions, just joined the GLMV Chamber of Commerce (Green Oaks, Libertyville, Mundelein and Vernon Hills, IL). One of the reasons we joined the Chamber is because we like to give back to our community and we felt that a good way to do this was to assist many small companies in their efforts to become successful. America’s economic engine runs on small businesses with the majority of jobs provided and goods bought and sold. Our local community benefits from having a thriving local business community since the dollars spent here stay here in the form of local taxes that go to provide the local government services we all enjoy. So, be sure to support your local businesses by buying locally.
