Many say this is a year that should just be cancelled, however, I believe this is a year that can be used to learn lessons and make positive change.
Having plenty of time during March to May, Serve Daily decided to make some positive changes with some additional or improved digital services for the community and potential business partners.
One of the changes is within our online Community Calendar Event System.
We partnered with a local company, CitySpark, to provide an impressive Community Calendar on our website. It will be found at servedaily.com/calendar as well as have widgets on many pages and posts on our site to find local events or even events across the nation for when you travel.
Event planners are invited to create a free account for the Serve Daily Community Calendar and submit and publish all family friendly events. In July we will be placing a selection of events published on our site in the print copy of Serve Daily.
We have space built into our new website layout to allow for Digital Community Sponsors for the site as a whole or specific categories. A few of the benefits for the Community Sponsor includes your business logo on just about every page of the site, a large banner ad, and sponsored content on the site.
Another amazing change is our listings for businesses for the following business types: Attractions, Restaurants, Retail, Services, and Travel type companies. More information on creating a listing will be available later as we finalize plans.
Let’s all make the decision to make 2020 a great year.
One of our prior Serve Daily Cards had a quote by Mahatma Gandhi that said,
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
At this time, with all the crazy things happening, it’s time to slow down, take some deep breaths, and reflect what we truly want. How are we at home? How do we treat our family, neighbors, friends, extended family, and community members?
From the song, “Ayo, I’m Working Hard” by Jasper Sawyer, “I’m up in the middle of the night putting hours in. The world is full of WONDERFUL PEOPLE, I’m one of them. My hopes go up and down. But still my life must mean something. It means something to me.” A little later in the song, “I got to get my wake up early on, get my smart and nerdy on, I got to get my reach the sky on, GET MY ALWAYS TRY ON, I got to get my hit the gym on, get my sink or swim on, I gotta get it,… I got to get my DON’T COMPLAIN on, I got to get my win this game on, I gotta get my don’t sit still on, get my pay these bills on, I got to get my Jasper Sawyer on, don’t say my name, say your own. I gotta get it, I gotta get it.”
I gotta get my Chris Baird on. I gotta get my be kind on. I gotta get my treat others with respect on. I gotta get my give what I can on. I gotta keep making positive changes on. Now make your mantra and be the change you want to see in the world.
As always, go out and find someone to Serve Daily, it’ll put a smile on their face and yours.
