When you buy from a small mom or pop business, you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home.
You are helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, a mom or dad put food on the table, a family pay a mortgage, or a student pay for college.
Our customers are our shareholders and they are the ones we strive to make happy.
Thank you for supporting Small Businesses!
I have nothing against larger businesses as they're necessary to research, develop, produce and distribute goods and many services. We're a global society that relies on them and they're not necessarily the evil empire that's an easy target, especially in this economy. But when you drive anywhere, pay attention to all the small businesses that probably employs the vast majority of our work force.
How many of you are small business owners? I am!
