How did working class Wednesday get started?Working class Wednesday started out of an eagerness to serve my community. I sat down one day thinking of all the ways I could help but didn’t want to duplicate anyone else’s dreams or ideas. The local economy crossed my mind and I immediately started thinking back to when my dad operated his own business , as well as thoughts of my own business ownership both past and present. The hardships local business face is undoubtedly a very serious issue whether its due to lack of advertising dollars or just a lack of local support in general I begin to think what can be done. I thought what if we created a platform in which local businesses could all come together and pitch there ideas to one another as well as the public at large. Working Class Wednesday is the name that popped in to my head. I thought it was both catchy and appropriate for the mission. I then reached out to Ms.Ayla Madison of Power Promotions whom was a serious catalyst in assisting me to get this ball rolling . She then helped me team with Mr. Remy Sawyer of Plush Lifestyles Event Planners. The chemistry we all have together has greatly contributed to the early success of this event.
