Keeping Local Dollars In Portola Hills

When you come through Portola Hills, you probably don't think of business. That is part of what makes Portola Hills such a special place to live, there really isn't any commerce. But is there.....

Ask yourself?
  • What do your neighbors do for a living?
  • How does their success add to the success of your neighborhood?
  • Do you have a need that a struggling neighor could help you with?
  • Did you know your neighbor has a home based business that may actually help you and your business.
  • Need an Attorney, Landscaper, Hair Stylist, Let's not forget Realtor! - bet there are few of those here in Portola Hills that would love your call.

Have you noticed in today's world everyone comes home and drives straight into their garage, no hello's, no hand shakes, no hugs, the goal being in and out of the home with as little interaction as possible. No ill-will intended just gotta get dinner going!

But in today's economy this is the exact opposite of what we all need to do. We need to understand what our community needs and how we can assist in keeping it such a great place to live. This ecomomy is touching eveyone, not just the local store on the corner. It has touched, the Avon Lady, Landscaper, Consultant probably more then most as they are self employed and have little help to turn to.

So next time you think of a need, maybe consider looking out the door or asking a neighbor if they know someone who could help. Better yet, check out our local blog or LocalAdLink.com. Have a business you want to advertise, let us know and we will include a link right here Portola Hills Living and do a write on your business.
