Here’s What Happens When You Support a Small Business

A good friend of mine posted this article’s feature image on his Facebook page; he recently left a successful career in corporate marketing, and is now an entrepreneur. He posted the following quote along with the photo:

 

This is so true. I never saw it this way but it is a reality. – Roger G.

 

As someone who has been on the entrepreneurial grind for about four years now, who has made MANY sacrifices along the way, and is a dad of three year-old twins, this photo resonates deeply with me.

For this post, in addition to the items listed in the feature image, I’m going to list a few other ways supporting small businesses is helpful, and if you own a small business yourself, push on, perhaps get yourself a small business advisor and never stop the entrepreneurial grind for your goals and dreams.

And I’d like you to add to this list by leaving additional helpful items in the comments section. I will update this list with all of your input. It would be great to see this list grow to well over 100 items.

To be clear, I ain’t at all mad at the big company CEO for building her third holiday home-more power to her. But people need to know their support of small businesses MATTERS.

Ready? GO!
