Every day we have a choice. We can support an up and coming podcaster, try a new family-run restaurant, join a boutique gym started by a local fitness champ or we could keep giving away our money to the handful of giants who already control so much of our commerce. Our daily decisions impact the kind world we live in; if we want a world where small businesses are growing and artists and creatives are thriving then we should support them with our time, money and attention. We’re proud to highlight inspiring creatives and entrepreneurs each week in Hidden Gems series. Check out some of Plano’s gems below.

I am a wife, mother of three, and a Nurse. Like so many women today, I juggle family, work, faith, friends, and every other endeavor as best as I can. But a few years ago, I began to realize things in my life that I had missed or overlooked as I tried to live my everyday life. And it had to do with my daughter. Read more>>
I guess I can say it all started back when I was a kid growing up, watching tv, riding in the front seat of my grandmother’s Oldsmobile, peering out the window, watching the world.
