When you buy from a small business an actual person does a little happy dance!
“When you buy from a small business an actual person does a happy dance”, a fellow entrepreneur and friend shared this quote with us. It is completely accurate and succinctly personifies the entrepreneur. It resonated so deeply with us that we will endeavor to purchase our holiday gifts this year from only locally owned or small business internet companies, while passing over the big box stores and chains. We challenge others to join us, make an actual person do a Happy Dance!
After re-launching www.fussbudget.com this February, we have become keenly aware of what it takes to start and run a small business, it’s not your grandmother’s internet. Our hats off to these entrepreneurs, many of them women owned businesses. There is pronounced appreciation of community amongst entrepreneurs. Offering one another guidance, following each other’s social media (@fussbudgetcom on Instagram and Facebook) (of course, we like and comment to offset the algorithms that tip the scales to larger chains and “influencers”) and much more.
The entrepreneurial spirit is in our blood as Americans. Free Commerce is our countries standard, it’s what has shaped us into a thriving nation. We are so grateful to the countless friends who have supported our business this year as well as our clearly brilliant new customers. Customer service and quality are the backbone of Fussbudget.com.
If you are the friend of an entrepreneur or small business owner, what can you do to help? Buy from your friends, like and follow their social media support them!!!
Make someone do a Happy Dance, shop local or shop small e-commerce!
