Tomorrrow is Small Business Saturday. I implore every mother, every person to shop in your local small businesses. We control 85% of household spending. My guess is we control 98% of holiday spending. This is the time for us to come together as a community and use our powers for good.
Our small businesses are the lifeblood of our communities. They are more likely to contribute to local charities and they represent 65% of all new jobs created.
American Express are even giving a $25 credit to cardholders who shop in small business on Saturday November 24 in case you needed an extra reason to give your local business well…your business!
Here is one of my local businesses that I’ll be shopping at tomorrow: Bridgewater Chocolate. You can join me because they have a fabulous online store (and it qualifies for the AmEx rebate also!) Bridgewater Chocolate represents the best of the best in small businesses. Look for these same attributes in the businesses you support:
They contribute to causes that matter to Moms! Bridgewater Chocolate is the exclusive chocolate sponsor of the Mom Gets A Business Conference to name one!
They create jobs! Bridgewater Chocolate is about to launch a new location. Sorry, can’t tell you more than that right now just know they are defintely creating more jobs!
They create with integrity! If you have ever sampled Bridgewater Chocolate you know what I mean. It is hands down the best chocolate I have ever tasted and they deliver their product in total style. Their packaging and customer service is impeccable.
