We had some excitement today at the Strawesome headquarters!
Back in November I told my husband that the local news agencies should start doing stories about the success of businesses in our area. The Metro Detroit area gets plenty of negative press, especially with the City of Detroit recently declaring bankruptcy. I was thinking that a little positive talk about the businesses in our area that are striving would be wonderful to see. And I left it at that, I put it out there…
This week I got a call from a local newscaster who wants to do a story on Strawesome for a new segment they’re working on. I was totally in shock! Today they came out and filmed the segment and interviewed me. The photo above shows us in my workshop giving a custom straw to the reporter who was so very kind and genuinely interested in what we do.
They highlighted that we’re a family business and I have two young boys to care for as well as my business endeavors. I think the highlight was in the middle of the interview when my 4 year old walked in saying “Mom, I just peed my pants.” That brought lots of laughs and the reality of my oh so glamorous life!
If you’re in our area the segment will air during the 5:00PM news cast on February 10th on Channel 7 WXYZ Detroit. I will post the video when it’s available.
