Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.— Oscar Wilde.
My name is Kaysi and I’ve always had a curiosity about people in general and loved hearing their back story.
Ive been a business owner, a manager, a maker and most recently a mother, which lead me to a career change. While on maternity leave I started studying Social Media Marketing to help friends and also my other passion; Bonnie and Hide my leather making business. This is where Love Your Locals was born. A genuine interests to get to know other makers. So I started a blog. Because who doesn’t love a challenge right?
I started out talking to locals that I connected with regularly about my idea, and to no surprise, they all thought it was a pretty cool idea and agreed that it would be interesting to get to know the person behind the business or maker on a more intimate level.
People love to be nosey, they love a good story, and I love talking to people; I mean REALLY talking to people about how they got to where they are today. I know from my personal experiences that we end up where we are because of something. Whether it be family, a life experience, a passion that we just had to follow, a hobby that turned into a full time career or to increase your everyday hustle. It all comes from something.
A big thank you to all the people who have taken time out of life to sit and chat with me, without you this would just be another boring blog! And if you’re reading this and you know of a cool local that has a story, please give me a shout – I’d love to share it with the world.
