Through the technology of my handy FLIP video camera, I do short interviews with a different small business owners in or around McKinney.
There are many great personalities in and around McKinney. Many have roots here but most migrated this way and have become an integral part of our growth and development. Anne Royer is one of those individuals.
Chances are you will not meet many people with Anne’s background. Her personal growth has been fueled by teachings both theological and artistic. She has a formidable education resulting in multiple Master Degrees and learned her craft with a paintbrush from a true Master.
Anne’s story is not a short one and in fact I am presenting it in two parts.
This week we will hear of her beginnings and all that led Anne to us in McKinney. Next week she shares her passions for giving back to those that afforded her opportunities and the community that adopted her… Or did she adopt it?
If you think you have a story to tell send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me why you should be the focus of Stuart J’s Lens.
Here are some of the rules:
● Your business does not need to be an advertiser on TownSquareBuzz.com. (Although if you are reading this, you can already appreciate that TSB is the place to go to reach thousands of people like yourself who are interested in the goings-on in McKinney.)
● The objective is to be serious about small business in and around McKinney but in a fun way. If not full of personality, (fun, charming, quirky….), you will not make the cut. (Note: I stole that line from “Chopped”!)
● This personality could stem from what drove you to a particular business, what your strangest/funniest business experience has been or what we “really need to know” that we probably would not have guessed. Boring, staid, “we make widgets and want people to come buy those widgets” stories will not be featured.
● Did I mention you don’t have to pay to play? The cost of entry is simply a story the folks in McKinney would enjoy hearing.
Listen in to a piece of Anne Royer’s story and don’t forget to come back next week for more. Just click on the little screen under the word “Video” below to get started.
