Hi. I'm Drew.
For over 20 years I've run internet companies and helped lots of people benefit from the internet all around the world.
But helping everyone everywhere has made me realize there is a major gap in how technology benefits community.
So I bought Sharonville.com and I've been secretly working trying to figure out how we can better do community in a digital first world.
Know, I'm not looking to build another website that you can browse while your sitting on the toilet.
Instead, I'm looking to build a website that better bring us together IN PERSON.
While chatting with friends and family it seemed our conversations assumed that our best days were behind us.
Are you okay with that?
I've decided I'm not.
I want to live the best days now while I work towards creating even better days in the future.
I'd love some help.
I don't even know what I'll need yet. But I do know that I don't want to do this alone.
If you're interested in building a better Sharonville send me a message.
I'll add you to an email list and try to keep you updated.
Answers to Possible Questions
I don't know. I still have a day job running my company, location in the Sharonville Loop. Without additional outside energy it may be years. 😭
What will be on the site?
I want Sharonville.com to tell me things that are difficult for a busy person like me to know. Like what to do now? What events are going on now? Anybody doing anything that I can join in on?
Much of the information will be stuff that you can find elsewhere with some Googling and questions on social media. But I want it to be easy and here and LOCAL. I don't want big business to be in-between my community and myself. 🤮
Will it be a business?
If you are asking will there be revenue, expenses, and possibly profits? Yes. I've already put thousands into this and I sure would like to keep feeding my family while I build this.
But the purpose is impact and community, not profit maximization. As long as it doesn't complicate the process of building cool stuff, I'll work to keep things transparent.
How will it make money?
I don't know. I would anticipate that the site would be able to benefit local businesses, so we we'll give them a way to support the site.
Ideally, we can get members of the community to support the site too. I'll work on creating something that you're open to financially supporting. If not, that will be fine too.
Imagine a central hub for the community. For the community, by the community.
