Meet Love Local


We built this company to holistically support you on your journey as a local business owner. Consider this your go-to place for all things local business growth.

We believe in simplifying systems, maximizing marketing dollars, and building a business that brings you complete and total joy (it's why you started right?).

We've ditched the old-school, expensive way of growing a business and are here to give you fresh ideas that actually work online and IRL.

Our courses, 1:1 services, and Instagram presence was created after working with hundreds of people just like you who have told us repeatedly how we can serve you.

Meet the Founder & CEO, Emily Steele

Emily is a die-hard local lover. After building multiple local brands of her own, she set out on her own to start Love Local so she could teach others her framework.

You can typically find her over-caffeinated at a coffee shop in Des Moines, Iowa strategizing for her clients or teaching classes on Zoom to her students in Local Business School.

We created Local to Legend with you in mind. From brick & mortar shop owners just getting started to real estate agents crushing it from building a personal brand, we're bringing local voices together in one spot to keep you inspired.
