These small businesses are representative of the solid economic growth engine in Northern Virginia, in spite of the National economic outlook - Loudoun will continue to produce energetic, value-add and truly entrepreneurial businesses like those listed here.

We'll point out that "Modern Mom Media Corporation" in particular, is a breakout example of how to harness the Internet to represent small business interests on the local, regional and national stage. The "I Am Modern" brand and value is channeled not only through the printed magazine, social events and the core website, but also through online social media and search engine marketing strategies - thereby providing significant value to readers, members and advertisers across all Washington DC and Northern Virginia media channels.
All Loudoun businesses should leverage this example, working together to promote our local business economy both online and off.
