I am not much of a shopper but today is small business Saturday and I will spend money in my own community. I’ll start the day by buying some donuts from a local bakery for my dad. Later I’ll grab a cup of coffee at the local coffee shop. This evening we will be at an event that is being hosted by a local small business.
Shop local because it is good for the community and most of the money you spend will stay in the community. I am a small business owner. The money I bring in doesn’t go to another state to a corporation or to pay a franchise fee.
Don’t wait for small business Saturday. Buy local all year long. Don’t spend your whole life working for someone else. Think about starting your own local business.
