Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.

For hikers, cairns are symbols of safety: the stone markers outline the right path. At Cairn Coaching, a life coach acts in much the same way. Instead of sifting through past experiences like a therapist, the life coach helps clients enjoy new ones—perhaps ones they thought were out of reach. The life coach customizes a plan for each client designed to meet their unique goals. These often involve attending a certain college, transitioning to a new career, or performing better as a leader or athlete.
