Good Monday Morning to You!

Most of you reading this know that one of the magazines we publish is CITYVIEW. Inside the pages of this monthly publication is a section named the CITYVIEW Business Journal. It includes news and information written for business owners and managers, and it is the most widely circulated business publication in central Iowa with 30,000 copies distributed in Polk, Warren, Dallas and Guthrie counties, reaching more than 100,000 print and digital readers each month.

With regular features on subjects that matter to business owners, along with photos from business events, commercial real estate transactions, SBA loans and how-to advice from business professionals, this is where business owners look for news and information about the central Iowa business community. You can access the pages from this month’s issue for free at www.iowabusinessjournals.com or pick up CITYVIEW at any of more than 700 locations in central Iowa.

For several years now, we have also been recognizing those in the central Iowa business community who have made a positive difference. Yes, good people are doing good things every day in your community. Maybe your boss. Maybe a co-worker. Maybe a vendor. Maybe a chamber president. Maybe a city councilperson. Maybe a banker. Maybe a real estate agent. Maybe you.

We are fortunate to have so many people who truly are making a difference, and we will recognize 22 of these business leaders in Des Moines and the surrounding area for their efforts and accomplishments in the November issue of CITYVIEW’s Business Journal.

Nominate anyone you feel has made a positive impact on your business community in 2022 by clicking here or simply emailing information to tammy@iowalivingmagazines.com. The deadline for nominations is Sept. 30, but don’t wait. Give a business leader you know the recognition he or she deserves.

Have a marvelous Monday, and thanks for reading.
