Why should you shop?

According to Hearst Newspapers, small businesses contribute to local economies by bringing growth and innovation to the community in which the business is established. Small businesses also help stimulate economic growth by providing employment opportunities to people who may not be employable by larger corporations.

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), small businesses represent 99.7 percent of all employer firms. Since 1995, small businesses have generated 64 percent of new jobs, and paid 44 percent of the total United States private payroll, according to the SBA.

I thought, what better way to track my level of growth than by sharing my experiences and the lessons learned thereof, than in my blog?

    1. Ugh, Susan! I know how you feel. On Saturday I was out of town so I didn’t really get to support some of my hometown’s small businesses. But bet your bottom dollar when I get back, I’ll be on a mission to support. šŸ™‚

      Supporting small businesses can be every Saturday!
