"Life can be beautiful, life can be messy but we should not do this life alone. I am obsessed with traveling and exploring our beautiful country while being a positive influence in the lives of others. I hope you will be inspired to get out and explore the beauty of God's creation. I am honored to share this journey with you." ~Cheri Cranford
Legacy is not what I did for myself. It's what I'm doing for the next generation. The greatest legacy one can pass on to one's children and grandchildren is not money or other material things accumulated in one's life, but rather a legacy of character and faith.
"I am proud of Missouri and all the local businesses, venues, attractions, events and people who are part of this state. This is what I do is promote local businesses throughout the state of Missouri , it is my passion and the reason behind my company." ~Founder and CEO Cheri Cranford
Family Operated Business that is Locally-Owned . Missouri's Best is a vibrant business community dedicated to supporting and promoting local businesses. Our community represents a diverse range of industries, from small businesses, healthcare and finance to retail and hospitality.
Some of my fondest childhood memories, center around my time spent at the Lake of the Ozarks with my family and friends. Warm summers, my days working the gas dock and thousands of laughs continually echo in my mind. My grandparents owned a quaint little vacation home there and if anyone were to ask me what my favorite and most special times were growing up, that answer has always been those wonderful years. Today, as a wife, mom, grandmother, daughter aunt and friend, I can think of no greater pursuit, than serving our community and promoting the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks and Missouri.
Ten years ago I took a leap of faith and began building Missouri Magazine. Today we have a strong presence and I am excited you're part of our community. Missouri Magazine, brings a wide variety of features, stories events and businesses that too, call Missouri home. Celebrating why we LOVE Missouri.
As a businesswoman, my diverse work experience serves our community well. I worked with a team, at a local multimedia, news organization in Atlanta, Georgia prior to moving back to my home state Missouri to be close to my family. I have vast experience in social media, account development, manage effective marketing strategies and campaigns based on multiple marketing platforms including: Publications, Digital Advertising, Mobile Advertising, Video Advertising, Branded Content & Native Advertising, Online Contests, Corporate Sponsorship's, e Newsletters/email blasts.
I love the Lake of the Ozarks/Missouri and I know you do too! Please feel free to email me with your thoughts and ideas. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you, at the lake or around Missouri.
