posted in: News 0

I’d like to take the time to thank our community, supporters, friends and family for your support throughout 2018 and helping me achieve my personal goal as “Salesman of the year for B&B Ford 2018”. I could not have done it without you and want to take the time to give my sincerest, humble, thank you’s, to each and every one of my 2018 customers as well as my past customers. I’d also like to express thanks to my B&B Ford family, Howard Bush and Andrew Bush for all your support.  I thrive on not just being your sales consultant but your only sales consultant. I would also like to take this to express why it is imperative to support your local business.  I founded Business Woman of Barnwell County as a platform to support our local industry. Not just for woman but all local business and a place I could serve for our community. It is really important to support all of our local industry and we should all support one another. When you buy local you create local jobs (including jobs in law enforcement, teachers, fireman), lower taxes, increase the wealth of residents, buying from a locally owned business conserves energy and resources in the form of less fuel for transportation and less packaging, supports your neighbors, increases donations to local charities (businesses tend to donate more to local charities, theaters, churches and events), local economy stimulus, (For every $100 you spend at a locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community.  I am honored to serve as well as a future ambassador for Southern Palmetto Regional Chamber.People it is really important to support your local chamber as well and be active in it.

I find it equally important to teach our young adults on finances, economy and credit history.  I witness too often young adults whom come to me to purchase a car and really don’t have a clue on interest rates, credit scores and such. It would be very easy for someone to take advantage of them and I always advise them as I would my own.
