Lunch & Learn With Alison Magnuson

February 23, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

We all have that one big dream tucked away for “someday”, but what would happen if we let go of the fear and just went for it? Alison Magnuson, owner of The Local, will be sharing her journey of taking control of her dream and turning it into her reality. Having no experience in the entrepreneurial world, she will be going through the ups and downs she has faced, along with the challenges women undergo in a male dominated industry. 

The Local has given over one-hundred Wisconsin and Midwest, primarily women owned, small businesses the opportunity to share their goods to a larger demographic and turn their side hustle into their main source of income. Alison opened her first location in downtown Wausau July of 2017 and the Weston location May of 2019; each shop offers a curated experience of a wide variety of items from apparel to home goods. Those who attend will receive a complimentary gift from The Local.
