Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday is tomorrow. A day that promotes the population to go out and support the small businesses in town.

The concept of shopping at your local mom and pop shops shouldn’t need to be promoted. Shouldn’t we all just naturally gravitate towards these businesses. The businesses that give you one on one attention, who know you personally, and who usually end up going the extra mile, to make you happy.

When doing your Holiday shopping, don’t focus so much attention on price, focus on who is going to be there to answer your questions, address the problems and make you happy.

As a small business owner consider what will separate you from the big box stores and if you can’t beat them on price, find another way to beat them.

Have a great day!

Confront your fears

If you try to avoid fear the easy thing to do is….nothing.

If you want to get things done, be willing to confront your fears and overcome them.

Running from your fears tends to put you back further than when you started. Confronting and then overcoming your fears allows you to go forward and succeed.

Have a great day!

Look elsewhere

People like to use the saying “think outside the box”. It’s a way of saying to think differently than the norm.

Why not look somewhere the box has never been?

Why not look where the box once was and has since moved from?

Why not think in terms of a different plane altogether?

Stop looking at how to be different than others and instead look where you think is right, regardless of others.

Have a great day!

Life is good

There are days that you wake up on the wrong side of the bed. On these days just about anything can set you off in the wrong direction. Keep focus on the positive, because at the end of the day, all that really matters is what good you put out into the universe. If you get started on the wrong track, remember, life is good and no matter what side of the bed you rise on, you should be thankful for all that GOOD you have!

Have a nice day!

The first time

The first time you tried cooking you probably weren’t very good at it.

The first time you tried drawing you probably weren’t very good at it.

The first time you tried riding a bike you probably weren’t very good at it.

Is it fair to expect others to be perfect the first time they try something?

Just a thought.

Have a great day!
