Transcript of Love Small Town America

Starting StirStick Studio
(The road less followed) where I design logos, tradeshow booths, marketing material, web sites, and more. Luckily for me an internet connection allowed me to work from my Colorado home office with clients in California, Texas, Florida, Canada, and even Israel. These were exciting times! "You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."
-Steve Jobs Love Small Town America Small Town Roots, Big Dreams I grew up on a farm in Western KS, graduating from a class of 11 people. I earned a degree in graphic design from Kansas State University. After working for design firms in Nebraska, California and Colorado, I launched my own graphic design business in 2002 called StirStick Studio... Graphic design jobs
(The traditional path) But there was more waiting for me down the road…an opportunity to show people in the city that there was more to life than headache-induced traffic, high mortgage fees, crime and smog. I wanted to show them that they could do what they love and live comfortably in a small town. So Love Small Town America, my second business venture, was born. Love Small Town America
(Uncharted territory) After starting a family I quickly learned I wanted the same offerings for my children that I had growing up. And I realized as I moved around the country just what I was missing with a small town. So my husband, 3 children and I picked up and moved back to my hometown of Grainfield. I was still able to connect with those clients so far away and do what I loved most, graphic design. A comprehensive listing of small towns
