Business in Branch County…

A

s a Coldwater native and a Coldwater High School graduate, it is exciting to be back in Branch County, living and working in Coldwater. After graduation from CHS, and then from Michigan State University, my wife and I spent our next 40 years working and living in Lansing, metro-Atlanta, New York City, and then the Detroit area. Since moving back to Coldwater in 2011, we have quickly been accepted into the community and I have re-started my business here. After working two years on Madison Ave., in Manhattan, it’s a different environment, but still exciting, to be working in downtown Coldwater. As an entrepreneur, it is important to be involved in the business community, but to also contribute to the overall growth and success of the area. I have attempted to do that, by moving my business into Coldwater’s downtown, and by volunteering time to serve on the Branch Area Chamber of Commerce Board, and it’s Executive Board. I am currently evaluating where else I can contribute to help this I am currently evaluating community proswhere else I can contribute per, because this is my community to help this community now, and I have a passion for busiprosper, because this is my ness. community now, and I have As a businessperson, it is vital a passion for business. to build alliances, cultivate relationships, and try to give more than you receive in the community. Coldwater has provided an environment of involved community leaders, business leaders, and political leaders that make it easy to contribute and who act in a coordinated effort for everyone’s benefit. In fact, Coldwater seems to have resources available for almost anything an individual or a business could require, and the “small-town” atmosphere seems to come through from a personal perspective. However, when it comes to business, Coldwater offers all the tools necessary to support that environment, and to help businesses grow and prosper. While the Chamber of Commerce is just one of those tools, it is a valuable resource that should be utilized for all of its advantages by every business leader in the community. In fact, just one of the many offerings of the Chamber will usually cost-justify a business membership, and there are many offerings. From the free web-sites, to the monthly networking events, to regularly-scheduled seminars where business or political leaders share their views, the Chamber offers value. And, the simple camaraderie of shared memberships with other community leaders, should, by itself, justify a membership in this organization. It is rewarding to see such community commitment, in so many areas, and it encourages involvement to keep the momentum going. I know my passion for business will have its needs met in Coldwater. I look forward to growing my own business, and that of this community.
