Right Support or My Geodesic dome-dwelling, Dancer, Small Business Mentor

I recently shared a train commute with my friend, Geoff, who founded P'unk Ave, Indy Hall, and other crazy-amazing Philadelphia projects.  We caught up and swapped small business stories (Rooted being much smaller than most of Geoff's projects!).  I shared my desire for a small business mentor to help with some infrastructure.  Geoff said, "You have to meet my friend Amy.  She co-founded Headlong Dance Theater, offers financial literacy to artists, and lives in a geodesic dome in South Jersey."

If you were to ask me to describe my ideal bookkeeper/accountant/business mentor, I GUARANTEE you that contemporary dance and geodesic-dome dweller would be featured in the description.

I've since met with Amy, developed a companionable barter for her services, and am generally exhaling much more freely.  Of course, when it rains it pours.  I've also found a multitude of resources for small businesses.

Thankfully, Rooted Landscaping is super healthy.  And in large part due to this dynamic community, it's only getting stronger!
