Today's Kindness #320: May 10, 2023
🙌🏼Support A Small Business🙌🏼
National Small Business Day is celebrated on May 10.
Today, we celebrate the self-employed and those with startups. We appreciate people with big ideas and the drive to make them come true. The United States has always thrived on the idea of entrepreneurship. It's the land of dreams and opportunity, where anything's possible. The pursuit of aspirations has taken different forms throughout history. But none have been quite as inspiring as America's small businesses run by individuals with true grit and heart who willed themselves to succeed. Their stories are encouraging because they represent what all of us could achieve.
About 6.5 million new businesses are started in the United States each year, and about three-fifths of new jobs in the country come from small businesses. It takes approximately six days to start a small business in the United States.
How To Observe:
Support Small Businesses
Visit a favorite local business today. Show some love by buying or highlighting their work on social media.
Do you need groceries, flowers, or a new dress? Choose to buy from a small business today and every other day.
Start A Small Business
Toyed with the idea of having your own business? Draft that plan. Make the call. No better day than today to take action.
"There's nothing wrong with staying small. You can do big things with a small team."
