Why The Sandbox Blog?

Yankton (that includes me!) needs to be better at showcasing the talent we already have here, the entrepreneurial momentum we possess, our members, the cool projects we have going on, as well as boomerang community members like myself; those that have moved away and are back or those that are considering the move.

We need to change the misconception that the quality of life isn’t here, that to be innovative you need to move elsewhere, and that doers, dreamers, and creators can only achieve their goals in metropolitan areas. Coming from someone who’s lived in major cities for the past seven years- this is not accurate. 

And that’s what I intend to do with our blog. Help showcase who’s here, what we’re doing as a community, and create something great together. 

This means I want to hear from anyone and everyone who has a story to tell. Entrepreneurs success stories as well as failures. Non-profits and their goals for the community. Potential small-business owners. I want to hear it all! 

Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!
