Finding and supporting small businesses in your community.
This post is not sponsored and I do not receive a commission for anything written here. Just a bit of information I thought this community may find useful.
Last week, before the New England Patriots COVID-19 outbreak I was watching the game with my husband when one of the commercials for supporting local small businesses popped up.
My husband turned and stated:
“I know we support small businesses…”
I paused for a moment, not knowing if I should answer. It almost seemed as if he were waiting for me to engage in the conversation so I responded with a simple:
My response to his next question prompted me to ask the same of you:
“How is it that you are finding so many local small businesses owners and entrepreneurs to interview? How is it that other people find local businesses if they can’t get out to go find them anymore?”
Now, my husband is not one to ‘talk shop’! Listening to me drone on about procedure creation is not something he is super interested in.
SIDE NOTE: This is totally unrelated but yes, the recognition and respect of such, is part of how to maintain a happy marriage! Much like him describing a game play in detail….. umm, no thanks.
When he actually asked me to explain a procedure, In The Middle Of A Game, I almost fainted… but I was too excited! Instead I began detailing the multiple ways the systems I have designed go about locating and vetting guests for the show. I was gushing about one particular platform I utilize regularly and I realized it was a perfect bit of information to share with the community!
Are you like my husband and curious about how to find local small businesses?
