A reflection on Y Natural Skincare refreshes our commitment to shop local
Recently, in an article entitled, Y Natural: The Inner Beauty Of Buying Local When You Say You Will, on his Talked About Marketing website, Steve wrote: “There is a resigned sadness among many small business owners like Barbara Gare from Y Natural, when they hear friends say they believe in buying local but don’t actually follow through. As small business owners and leaders we are right to feel disappointed in these friends while at the same time making sure that we are living up to the shop local ethos ourselves. The magic of our economy is that it is the circulation of credit from one party to another that keeps the lights on and wheels turning, so this matter of following through on buying local is a win win win that is worth going the extra mile for.”
For those reasons alone, we’re bringing back Barbara’s delightful and detailed interview from 2016, but we’re front loading it with Steve’s small business segment on FIVEaa with Richard Pascoe. We hope you find it inspiring.
In the Musical Pilgrimage, we have a “new” song by Courtney Robb.
And Steve plugs his 2023 Adelaide Fringe show: 100% MBA Success: Whisky And Trivia With Professor Longsword.
