This week Exemplar Financial Network surprised us with a visit to deliver a check from their donation drive. Not only did they run and collect donations for us they also matched the total, bringing their total gift to $1725!

We had no idea they had such a strong veteran and veteran adjacent community in their organization. It really makes it more special that these donations are coming from veterans to veterans; the bond there is strong, we can feel it.

Thank you for raising this money for our services, together we are changing lives.
If you or your organization would like to help make a difference in the lives of veterans in YOUR community, let us know, let's partner!

A big thank you to Exemplar Financial Network for inviting us to participate in your Brews, Blues and BBQ's today. It was hot, but your fabulous clients didn't let the heat ๐Ÿ”ฅdeter them!
Out of the pandemic our company and mission was born. To build and innovative platform that makes shopping small businesses online easy and convenient. We built a solution for brick + mortar boutiques hit by the pandemic. As well as give them a new sales channel to compete in the ever growing eCommerce landscape.

Why are we doing this? Because small businesses are the heartbeats of towns. Because we want to model the way and make it easy to even when shopping online. To showcase a unified virtual mercantile that mimics popping in and out of a shopping district, just from anywhere on any device at anytime. Because if not us, who will help build back stronger? Because we want to help stimulate local economies, help create jobs and become partners to small businesses. While helping consumers shift habits to local businesses.

With a little over a month into Locatile.com going LIVE we spent time in a strategic session. Our friends at Exemplar Financial Network were kind enough to lend us a conference room to whiteboard it out! An excellent example of a company helping another business! Our tech startup is virtual so having the space to dream-storm and plan was very much appreciated. The upcoming 12 weeks have several areas of focus and growth for us including the launch of LocaGive an aspect of our philanthropic mission!

Think of Retirement as the Goal, Not the Vision 10/14/2023

Other than helping our clients achieve their version of prosperity, our next favorite thing to do is support the local community. One of the ways we do this is through our jeans Friday program.
How does it work? We can pay $5 to wear jeans on Fridays and the money goes to the charity of the quarter. This last round we raised money for the United Way of Greater McHenry County .
