Did you know that today is Shop Small Business Saturday?
In case you haven’t noticed, on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it is usually all the big name stores that get all the attention. People line up outside their doors for hours to grab the best deals on items they have on their list.
And while I enjoy shopping at those stores, honestly, it is the small businesses I adore.
The ones that are owned by fellow moms who sell anything from makeup, candles, to housewares.
The friend who opened up her own bakeshop because everyone raved about her cakes.
The personal trainer, the makeup artist, the stylistic, the massage therapist.
Small businesses that were created to help their families and to provide a better life.
Some of these small business owners put in a lot of extra hours to give you the best product and service.
Some have the luxury of working from home and are able to make their own hours.
It doesn’t matter. Owning a small business is a thing of the heart.
So support small businesses not just today, but during the holiday season and beyond.
To my customers, those who have chosen to invest in me?
Thank you. You have no idea how much I appreciate you and how thankful I am for you. You are not just a customer to me. You are a friend and I cannot express gratitude enough.
