As a small business owner, you know first hand the struggles every small business owner faces. Because of that it’s very important to support each other. Doing so not only promotes small business, but it also fosters community.
American Express offers a whole website dedicated to how businesses can best participate in the Small Business Saturday movement. If you are a small business and the holidays take a toll on your business for the positive or the negative, it is best to pay it forward to other small businesses in your community. It not only creates goodwill amongst small business owners, but it boosts another’s business which is always a good thing. And the hope is that even if you are an accountant who does not have a unique service for the holiday that those you bolster will return the favor in the future. Building mutual small business relationships is important within communities.
