Did you ever think of running for a local political office in order to help with promotion of your company? I know this may sound off the wall, but recently I had a discussion with a business owner who did just that. This person ran for town council. Even though he lost, he said he made many many new business contacts that made the process worth it and help create more stature in the community for him and his company.

What's your thoughts on this?

Schmitz knows how to bring people together (http://www.zwire.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=17381282&BRD=1620&PAG=461&dept_id=151499&rfi=6) - Becky Schmitz, 57, Fairfield, hopes to draw on her conflict resolution skills as a social worker for over 30 years to serve the citizens of Senate District 45 in the Iowa Legislature.

She has also been an active partner in her husband's lawn care business.
