In the 28 years Garbo has been in the neighborhood, we have become more than just a business, but an active and supportive member of this community and our city. The 78757 and surrounding ZIP codes are a close knit group of small businesses and neighbors, and we see ourselves as one of those strands — an important piece of the colorful and creative tapestry that is our beloved city. Our team continues to be a part of numerous events annually that benefit important causes and charities, both locally and globally.
In our effort to support new and existing small businesses in the area, we love to get the word out through GarboCandy.com about the incredible services offered nearby. We all love to be the first to know about a great new place to eat! In addition to sharing about our newest neighbors, Garbo Candy has much more to offer, including but not limited to local deals, beauty tips, the latest fashions, local entertainment, and ways to keep fit in Austin. If you are not visiting Garbo Candy already, check it out!
We are now employing just under 30 people. Many members of our extraordinary talent team are also involved in outside endeavors of their own that benefit the community and beyond, which we will share with you later on this blog. Then, there are the folks who work behind the scenes, who have small businesses of their own, such as Casey Hotchkiss, our Garbo Candy editor. She has also been instrumental in working on our newsletters and social media presence. Visit HotchkissPR.com to learn more about her services.
Finally, later this year we will be officially launching a new endeavor — MPower Your Business — specifically to offer consulting services for existing small businesses who need a little extra help, both locally and around the state. Our services include team operations, time and money organization, social media strategy, and visual marketing. We also want to help small business owners take care of their own health, an important and overlooked part of starting a business and keeping it growing. Marsha Power's 28 years of experience and intuition will be a huge benefit in helping our friends who need help with their own businesses. Jonathan Jones, Garbo's manager and MBA holder, adds expertise in all areas of business growth and success. I'm proud to be part of the MPower team of consultants. You can find out more about my services in Web marketing at ZoeWebMedia.com.
There's so much more in which we want to invite you to participate. Stay tuned!
