Localstake or Bust: Owning My Work in Grand Rapids

Welcome to Localstake—Where You Own Your Work and Your Future

That was me until I hit the pause button and decided to take a leap into something more grounded. Here in Grand Rapids, I’ve discovered a vibrant community that values more than just transactional relationships—it values roots.

The Shift from Nomad to Steward

I’m your typical career nomad who’s been transformed by the concept of laying down roots in an unlikely place—Grand Rapids, Michigan. Crazy, right? Just like many of you, I stumbled into deciding to live long-term in a specific geographic area that offered more than career opportunities; it offered a community. After two years post-job transfer, the “now or never” bell rang loud and clear, and here I am, a family guy with a dream of owning my own work.
