Small businesses are critical to the success of our nation. So, I was THRILLED when I stumbled across a live video stream on Facebook from entrepreneur and media bad ass, Mario Armstrong. Yep, I said Facebook video streaming (à la Periscope); it’s only available for the ballers though-apparently. 🙂
Mario passionately implored viewers to give their support for Small Business Saturday and gave two pretty compelling reasons to do so:
- Small businesses employ more people than large businesses.
- Small businesses don’t have the same cash reserves as large companies, so EVERY dollar matters!
Then there is this graphic I saw online, which is a good third reason to support small businesses:
Without further ado, here’s Mario telling you why should support small businesses.
That is all!
P.S., You should join Mario’s Facebook group, the Never Settle Club, it’s filled with people making their passion their life’s work. Just search it on Facebook and request to join. Tell them I sent ya!
