Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Chris Baird

As I started to write this ar­ti­cle, I ex­pe­ri­enced the good vibes and had goose­bumps. This has been and will con­tinue to be an amaz­ing jour­ney. I thank you the reader for pick­ing up the copies of Serve Daily month af­ter month and read­ing one of your lo­cal news­pa­pers. Other great lo­cal news­pa­pers/pa­pers to pick up in­clude the Daily Her­ald, The Payson Chron­i­cle and the Thrifty Nickel. An­other great site ex­ists for those in Maple­ton, Maple­tonNews.com.

It is my hope that as Serve Daily (SD) con­tin­ues to grow that those around us will do the same. I see the pie as be­ing an ever-grow­ing pie. If SD gains a big­ger piece of the pie, the over­all size of the pie ex­pands. This is a be­lief that we have am­ple re­sources for all to grow. This growth is hoped for all com­pa­nies that pro­vide qual­ity ser­vices to the com­mu­nity. We are work­ing to­gether with other lo­cal mar­keters to foster growth and to pro­vide ad­di­tional ser­vices to the com­mu­nity.

You may have no­ticed in the April 30 edi­tion of the Thrifty Nickel that there was a mini edi­tion of Serve Daily. In this is­sue there are a cou­ple of pages of the Thrifty Nickel. As “com­pet­ing” com­pa­nies choose to work to­gether and build the com­mu­nity, each com­pany should gain an ad­van­tage as the ef­fects of syn­ergy should start to show af­ter due time. Syn­ergy math­e­mat­ics equal some­thing along the lines of 1 + 1 = 5 in­stead of 1 + 1 = 2. To­gether we can cre­ate more than we can in­di­vid­u­ally. This is as true for pri­vate in­di­vid­u­als work­ing to­gether as it is for busi­nesses that form those re­la­tion­ships.

Thank you to our ad­ver­tis­ers, ven­dors, dis­tri­bu­tion lo­ca­tions, pho­tog­ra­phers, ar­ti­cle writ­ers, ad designer(s), lay­out/edi­tor, au­to­ma­tion, read­ers and any­one I missed. YOU ARE AP­PRE­CI­ATED!

Un­til next time ... I in­vite ev­ery­one to do a ran­dom or planned act of kind­ness. It’ll bring a smile to their face and warm your heart.
