Saturday, November 24, 2012 has been set aside as 'Small Business Saturday.' It is a day where people throughout the United States are encouraged to take their business to small businesses, rather than the big-box stores.
As a small business owner myself, I think the awareness that Small Business Saturday brings to the entrepreneurs among us is fantastic. It isn't easy to compete against the 'big guys.' I find that even in the real estate business; there are some people who are just more comfortable with the big names.
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, 2 out of every 3 jobs in this country are created by small businesses. Supporting the businesses that create jobs is important for every one of us.
If you are planning to do some shopping tomorrow, or maybe if you are throwing a dinner party, think about how you could support a local small business.
Get out and support small business in your community tomorrow!
