Preslie Hirsch

Please welcome Thomas Barr, Executive Director of Local First Arizona (@localfirstaz) to the show! Thomas is an Arizona native, speaker, philanthropist, champion for locally owned businesses and committed to building vibrancy, equity, and prosperity across the state. If you are interested in supporting small businesses during this time (whether you’re in AZ or not), you’ll find this conversation interesting, informative and inspiring. 


In this interview we cover:

  • The benefits of shopping local (and common misconceptions about it)
  • Different ways you can support small businesses
  • Obstacles small businesses face that you may not have thought about before
  • Ways that independent operators are pivoting and adapting during this unprecedented time

I would love to hear what you think of this interview — let me know on Instagram @heypreslie. Enjoy!
