About the Show:

Northwest Arkansas Has Acres of Diamonds…

“Your diamonds are not in far distant mountains or in yonder seas; they are in your own backyard, if you but dig for them.”

  • Russell B. Conwell

We can’t believe that this is episode 200 of the podcast. Who would have thought that going around the Northwest Arkansas community with a digital recorder and a microphone to interview people and organizations to learn more about them would become a thing? 

Podcasting has been the perfect platform for sharing unique stories and personal resilience tales. Every episode has provided a place where people could be themselves and share the stories that matter to them, whether it was a successful business, a great creator, a fantastic organization, or an idea.  

We love telling and sharing stories that matter here at I am Northwest Arkansas, and the truth is that ALL stories matter. 

Some just need to be shared in front of a microphone.  

We will continue to record and share these stories until it makes sense not to do so anymore.  But we are a long way off from that day. 

Until then, keep tuning in weekly to learn more about Northwest Arkansas, maybe your neighbor, and yourself. 

We will keep pressing RECORD!

Peace and Love!

Signature Bank of Arkansas -  

Signature Bank was founded here in Northwest Arkansas in 2005 and focuses on personal and community banking. When you bank with a community bank, you’re investing in local businesses, local entrepreneurs, local charities, and causes close to home. They have worked hard to earn their tagline, “Community Banking at its Best.”

You may ask why bank at Signature? 

Because they focus on the customer instead of having a branch on every corner, you can have your questions answered by a real person, whether you’re reaching out to the call center or your banker’s cell phone. You can access any ATM in the country without fear of a fee.  They will refund all of those fees at the end of every month. Finally, they are constantly improving their digital offerings to ensure you can access the best financial tools from your laptop, phone, or tablet 24 hours a day.

Signature Bank of Arkansas is a full-service bank offering traditional checking and savings accounts, investment accounts, business and personal loans, and mortgages.
