How’s Business: It’s great! The daily paper, monthly and seasonal magazines are all exceptionally well received, and our readers are incredibly devoted. It’s wonderful working here, because, though I have routine, the news is never the same two days in a row – so every day is different, and I absolutely love my coworkers.
One thing you wish everyone knew about your business: We don’t know unless you tell us! We try to stay on top of things, but we are not omniscient. Let us know what’s going on, and we’ll do our best to cover it. News tips, events, or announcements (wedding, engagement, birth, anniversary) can all be emailed to news@tryondailybulletin.com
Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: Sincerely LOCAL news.
Advice to young entrepreneurs: Don’t always try to do everything yourself. It’s important to have a good team behind you, and it’s okay to ask for help.
Your first job: Tryon Daily Bulletin pressroom assistance. I started working here part-time putting together sales papers when I was 15. Though the work was hard, the crew I worked with made me never want to leave.
Your Role Model(s): My sisters, Holly and Kina. They’re the most beautiful, clever, tough and kind ladies I know.
The Key to a Successful Business is: Find out what the customer wants, and do your best to provide it, always with a smile.
