A Guide to Living Local

Bill Cole has operated Tiger Web Design as a member of the greater Springfield, MA region for more than three decades.
In that time Bill has proven himself as a proponent of supporting local business activity in meaningful ways. That is to say spending money and making money with your neighbors. The kind of business activity that you can touch, taste, see, hear and feel.
His latest venture is Living Local 413. With 44,000 businesses in the pipeline, representing the business community of Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire and Hampden counties of western Massachusetts, the premise is simple: to provide resources and bandwidth to businesses large and small. The segments are well laid out: Media, Municipalities, Consumers and Businesses.
Our discussion offers core principles underlaying this non-profit organization and how those principles lead to solutions that offer real assistance, especially to those businesses who typically are left out of major media, marketing and support.
Living Local 413 is a graduate of SMGraves Associates Business Triage Program. Yours Truly is a member of the organizations advisory group as I feel this organization is on the leading edge of defining how the non-profit sector should steward the business and municipal sectors.
