Connect and spread awareness through video interviews and social media.

How can WHAT MATTERS Initiatives Help YOU Spread the Word?

Community

Create awareness. Spread the word.

Creating awareness for community events, announcements, and causes, at What Matters Beth’s passion is spreading the word about what matters in our local and global communities.

How it all Began

Located on Facebook and other social media outlets, videos began as real estate marketing.  Jen first filmed Beth on house tours for their listings on a whim in February of 2015.  She encouraged Beth to change up her typical video tour by filming her walking through a listing and describing the features.

Soon after, Jen had the idea to offer tips to residents about local businesses and their offerings.  Town Tip Thursdays (TTT) were born and to date, over 100 TTTs have been filmed.

As the popularity of TTTs grew, the need for another video series to cover topics that matter throughout the local and worldwide community prompted the creation of What Matters Warren and What Matters World interviews.  In 2017 the Royal Examiner asked to feature What Matters Warren videos on their online newspaper. Check out the What Matters tab under “Features” on www.royalexaminer.com.

“Real State-The Stories behind the Sales” is a new series launched in 2018 to share heartwarming and inspiring stories behind the scenes of a real estate transaction. Story I (click here to watch) features Beth’s clients who donated nearly $2,000 towards her first gofundme.com match campaign

“The Stories” is a new series planned dedicated to inspiring people to follow their dreams and pursue their passions through interviews with individuals who are doing just that. Guests are asked two questions in an attempt to recognize them for their commitment to their purpose and inspire others to be brave enough to pursue their dreams. 1. What is your passion/dream and why did you chose to follow it 2. When was a time when you almost gave up or faced a challenge that you overcame?

When Beth decided to step down from being a Broker/Owner and transition to Associate Broker at KW-Solutions, Keller Williams, Realty, she had a large office with extra space since she now works solo.  She decided to launch a WHAT MATTERS Initiative offering free office space to area nonprofits. The Front Royal Women’s Resource Center operates out of an upstairs room at Beth’s real estate office at 27 Cloud Street (on the corner of Jackson and Cloud Streets in Historic Downtown Front Royal).  Another office upstairs was formerly used by Habitat for Humanity and is now occupied by CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocats-learn more at http://www.casaforchildren.org).  Cloud Street will also be home to Beth’s future company, TheShout-Out.com (the sign is already installed to remind her daily of her dream of starting the global fundraising platform).
