Introducing Ohio's Heart

 For many years now, I have said that all of us are media companies.  It’s a mind shift in marketing your business or telling your story that is the result of cell phones with amazing cameras and the internet.  You are no longer a company that sells cars.  You are a media company that also sells cars.   This shift makes you think differently about how you tell stories.  I talked about it in this blog back in May.   It really changes the way you think.  You start to see stories that need telling.  We did.  We started to see those stories.  But we were not sure this blog or website was the right place.  So we decided to create “the right place.”  That is why we created “Ohio’s Heart.”   Ohio’s Heart is an online media company dedicated to promoting positivity and spreading kindness in, what we feel, is an underserved area in Ohio.  What is that area?  Think of the area along the intersection of 70 and 77.  We will cover up to Wayne County and down to Washington County.   We will have articles, videos and podcasts as we move forward.  And we will be looking for ideas on stories to cover (so help us keep an eye out).  We are starting slowly, as we are learning as we go, but we posted our first article to social media Friday (check that out here).  What can you do?  First off, feel free to follow us on social media.  We are on Facebook and Instagram.  Next up, share any articles you think have value!  Finally, as you check into the site, you can make sure you never miss an update by signing up for the Ohio’s Heart email.  It’s a great way to know about positive things going on in our region. So check out the website now and give us your two cents.  We appreciate the feedback and the support as we try to make positivity louder in our region! P.S. Special shout out to Skylar Hasseman, who has been working hard to get this site up and running for the last couple of months!  With the help of Josh Williams and Eric Dingler, we have it live.  Nice job Skylar! We have a new post each and every day on THIS site.  Make sure you stay connected by signing up for our VIP newsletter here.
