"Celebrating Five Years!" (Business Always Matters) is a unique business/cultural website devoted exclusively to coverage of Mississippi companies, entrepreneurs, personalities and issues.

Our mission at To provide feature stories that are crisp, informative, inspiring and full of anecdotes and insights on entrepreneurs and companies in our state that have made an impact.

Such businesses range from Fortune 500 to Mom and Pop, from family-owned to sole proprietor…and everything in between. Our YouTube channel also shows interviews with these same personalities, allowing the viewer to see and hear the person they’re reading about. also features, from time to time, profiles of celebrities, athletes, artists, authors and philanthropic leaders in our region who have made a mark with their distinctive contributions. There is usually a business tie-in with the impacts such people have made and will emphasize those common factors, something that is often not done in the typical fawning and laudatory celebrity articles.

Moreover, provides some of the most informative and incisive op-eds to be found anywhere on the Internet. We have among our editorial writers many varied philosophical and political viewpoints represented and these seasoned professionals will no doubt incite thought, reflection, argument and possibly even action.

Unlike the stale, conventional and status quo editorial offerings from most business and political websites, will not be afraid to give voice to those who are outside of the mainstream: any view providing new insight on current issues will be featured and welcomed as long as they are respectful, civil and well-reasoned. also provides a forum for professionals in our state to offer advice, forecasts and suggestions in the areas of finance, law, accounting and real estate for readers in Mississippi .

Too often maligned in mainstream media, we at believe that businesses of all sizes---but particularly the smaller, more entrepreneurial ones---provide our Metro cities and communities with services and products that don't get the attention they deserve. Our editorial mission is to remedy that problem by providing outstanding feature stories on businesses in our region that will inform and inspire the reader. is not only a PRO-business website---meaning we celebrate business success and honest profit-making unapologetically and enthusiastically----we will objectively demonstrate the specific "ins" and "outs" of the businesses we profile to reveal how their success is achieved.

To put it another way: we will reveal what makes certain successful businesses "tick" and, in doing so, inspire other businesses and our readers to do the same in their endeavors.

Our features, editorials, profiles and investigations will be written in a clear and non-technical style that readers from all sectors and sections of the business community will enjoy and appreciate. We will not cater to just the Fortune 500 companies or those with thousands of employees; will cover and promote solely-owned businesses as well as those larger companies in our region.

Success is the criteria; not size. is beholden to no political party or position. We recognize that business success comes in many different philosophical persuasions and that much can be learned from various and diverse viewpoints.

However, our editorial writers will indeed assume specific positions in order to stimulate debate, discussion and, hopefully, even instigate change in ways they best think the business community can learn and benefit. We feature op-ed writers from all political persuasions as we believe that this is the best way to keep the flow of ideas moving in the right direction. is not partisan except in one way: our mission to provide information, facts and opinions that we believe will best benefit the business community wherever those ideas originate. will be a catalyst for positive change as well as a vehicle for conveying the new progressive and aggressive economic engines of our region. Our website will focus on the broad range of local business, technology, energy, entertainment, medicine, finance, real estate, tourism, education, athletics and more.

It has not only been the desire of BAMSouth over the past five years to be used as an economic tool by presenting potential investors and customers a positive look at what Central Mississippi offers; we will also continue to celebrate all positive things local on our website that pertain to the myriad of businesses and entrepreneurs we have in our midst.

In particular, will emphasize the accomplishments and creativity of our business community and its leaders through which, again, all other accomplishments follow and depend upon.

That's why Business Always Matters on!
