“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” – Albert Einstein.
Sure, success is important. If you’re not a successful business it won’t be long before you’re not a business at all. But the real difference between big businesses and small businesses is their purpose.
With a few exceptions, a big business is on a mission to be successful. A small business is on a mission to be valuable. Valuable to their community. Valuable to their customers.
So, shop local. Purchase from small, local businesses. Show them that we value them back.
