You probably have seen ads recently for Shop Small Business Saturday which is coming up on November 29th. They prompted me to find out more about the role that small businesses pay in our economic health.
Although I always knew small businesses are important for the well-being of our communities (After all Exotic Plants is a small business.), I didn't fully grasp just how important. An article on www.entrepreneur.com said that small businesses represent over 99% of all employers and provide 60% to 80% of the net new jobs annually.
Think what that means for our community and how we can improve it by supporting our local small businesses! And we don't have to wait for Shop Small Business Saturday!
