Small Business Saturday: 7 Shops a-Slayin’!

One of the very best things about blogging is the opportunity to meet and learn about a variety of small business owners, both locally and throughout the country. I’m always impressed with these hard-working people that have taken a chance to go out on their own, often times in pursuit of a lifelong dream!

With Small Business Saturday coming up tomorrow, I wanted to share a few links to some of the fantastic small businesses I’ve had the opportunity to work with this past year. I’ve seen first-hand how much these smaller companies appreciate their customer support. Hope you’ll consider helping to make 2019 a record-breaking season for them!
