This meme has been going around for a while. But all too often, we see small businesses going online or out of the area buying supplies or services and padding the pockets of those same big corporations.
One thing they have missed is the opportunity to gain another client or make a new referral partner. I have made many friends and business partners, just by stopping in local business and becoming a customer.
November 30th is Shop Small Day. I challenge you to shop at a new small business that day or weekend and see if you can make a new friend, business partner or referral source!
