A Message from Our Team

“Welcome to the New Year’s edition of The Coastal Insider, and welcome 2020— which promises to be a bright and beautiful decade.


I’m so excited about the knowledge that Emma Ware, an experienced health and wellness coach, has shared with us about making and setting goals to be the healthiest version of you.  Check out the article on our front page.  And with this being not only a new year but also a new decade, the time has never been riper to empower yourself with new, healthy habits.


I appreciate striving for health in my own life because I suffered from a lot of illnesses as a child.  As I continue to travel on my own healing journey, it’s so helpful and inspiring for me to meet and learn from people like Emma who are on a mission to help others live a better quality of life.


I’ve learned that when people are at their most vital, they are more aligned with their passions and innate gifts— and are empowered to contribute to the community they inhabit in meaningful ways.  Each one of us makes up our community, thus individual health impacts our entire community.  I love that the atmosphere of our office is supportive of healthy choices— whether it’s consistently taking a time out for a nourishing meal, or a break from extended sitting at a desk.


Those small, self-nurturing choices that I make day-to-day end up becoming my way of life.  And that trickles outwards and extends to the people around me, creating a rippling network of happier, thriving people, all working towards a common goal.


For us, that goal has always been and continues to be, connecting our community— and to reflect those core values in our choices about our publication.  This month, we’ve implemented an updated design in our Table of Contents that features a map.  Each pin represents a business we’ve written about, indicating their location along the Grand Strand.  As we expand our sphere of connection throughout the area, it’s a wonderful visual reminder of the incredible diversity and talents of the people who make up our community.


Best wishes for setting your own goals for a happy and healthy New Year! ”
– Megan Parker  Creative Director

“As a guard, you’re standing on the edge of the jungle.  You’re trying to make yourself look as small as possible.  It’s dark, and it’s not quiet.  There were all kinds of noises in the jungle— birds, and monkeys, and you stood there and listened and listened.  But the moment it stopped— that was the …
