Small Business- it's where it's at (in our opinion).
First let us apologize for not blogging for almost two months. Busy is good...we love it. But our blogging has suffered and you have brought it to our attention. So what better blog to get back into the swing of things than one about our humble craft: SMALL BUSINESS.
Learn how spending your holiday dollars at small businesses this year ensures the livelihood of communities, the creation of meaningful jobs, the support of makers, and the preservation of traditional production methods. Why? Because I know I can find awesome lone gifts while also supporting the hard work of small business owners. Win - win. And you know we LOVE us a good win-win!
Generally when you run into a small business owner you will find that they are doers. Or they should be. They love what they do. Or they should. They do not consider what they do to be work. It is more a joy or goal in life. Doggedly (I love that word) we humble crafted humans strive to better the lives of our customers and clients. In fact, we can't get enough of it. No really. It's true. We know this because we witnessed those lifestyles unfold in our own families. Specifically, our parents. So, we 2 Besties, are blessed. Without observing others we would have thought that everyone lived that life. That is not true. However, here in Hannibal, you will find a ton of humans just like our parents.
It. Is. REFRESHING.
Back to "doggedly". Small business owners do and make and deliver goods and services despite any uncertainty because it is WHO THEY ARE. Generally you are not a small business owner out of need but rather want. We are fortunate in this day and age to be able to easily start up a small business and market it as such on social media. It has never been easier to be a small business owner than it is right now. If your "WHY" is genuine and true and your heart is totally in what you do, the sky is truly the limit.
