Happy Small Business Saturday.
This year has been tough on small business owners. I've watched countless small businesses, many that have been around for years, close. When you shop small you are helping someone buy groceries or give their kids music lessons, not some billionaire with daddy issues who wants to go to space. Please consider checking out some of the small businesses listed below that I recommend or have been recommend by my customers.
