It's time for a shift.....
Reppin the Bay Area Cali: a place where diversity thrives and considered the norm.  

I'm an aspiring social entrepreneur raising the awareness of why it's important to #buylocal while exploring the impacts of corporations (particularly big-box stores and national food chains) to the well being of the citizens. 

My focus is to shift spending away from dominant corporations to independent owner-operated businesses.  I understand that it's ludicrous to expect anyone to purchase only from "mom and pop shops" so "shift" was consciously chosen (check out my blog! Shift Local).  Please don't hate if you spot me buying a soft-serve cone from the Golden Arches.     

I plan to launch a service startup dedicated to helping independent local business owners embrace technology and utilize social media.  

Not quite sure how I want to use G+ but playing with it while it grows has been fun.  My circles mostly consist of G+ers I find on the "nearby" stream.  Always excited to meet new people through this so please say hi!

Action Litho is a print shop located in Hayward and is one of the best print services available in the Bay Area. During my search for an independent print shop in the Bay Area to grow my business with, I was annoyed by the lack of respect given to me. I visited 4 different printers in Dublin, Pleasanton and Hayward to quote me for my team's business cards. We wanted double-sided, colored and high-quality stock. For some reason, despite sitting down with me to understand my needs, all of these independent printers never followed through. To add to the insult, one of the print shops completely ignored my request for a quote - in person, phone call, online contact and email. Then I call Warren, the owner of Action Litho. I ask him if I can stop by since I prefer to talk in person and he welcomes me with open arms. From there, all I can say is that "it's history in the making." Warren runs Action Litho with pride. He is very passionate towards all things related to print. He's even joked that if I need it done, he can even print on toilet paper. Excellent, personal service, competitive pricing and print quality that exceeds expectation is what you will get from Action Litho.
