Not going to lie, being a small business owner is not easy.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s rewarding and enjoyable, but it is definitely a labor of love. Sometimes it feels like it’s three steps forward, followed by two steps back. But nothing worth having ever came easily, and I am mindful of that when spending my own dollars. Even before I knew everything that went into owning one, I always tried to support small businesses whenever possible.
That’s why I took the Shop 1 in 5 Pledge. Created by two small business owners, the mission of Shop 1 in 5 is to make a difference by making 1 in 5 of all of your purchases - online or off - from a small business. Imagine the benefit of such a collective action.
Supporting small business is something to feel good about. Mosey on over to Shop 1 in 5, take the pledge, and check out the Directory!
