Keep putting one foot in front of the other and forge ahead!

Sara Douglas didn't see any empty building, she saw an opportunity. A chance to work alongside her son Chris to build a business that makes business and personal packaging and shipping convenient and reasonably priced: My Mail Box, opening Oct. 24.

Douglas is well-suited to the business coming from a background in printing sales, art and freelance photography. What makes her successful is her attitude and perseverance, and she offers this advice to new business owners: "You have to be very flexible and responsive. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and forge ahead!"

My Mail Box offers dozens of services beyond shipping and mailbox rental, including passport and ID photos, notary, copying, faxing, printing, key duplication, videotape to DVD transfer and computer rental time.

There will be a special ribbon cutting ceremony on Oct. 24 at 5:30 p.m. with representatives from the Chamber of Commerce. The community is invited to attend.
