Quite often, as small independent businesses, it is easy to get lost in the day to day running of the business. There are always deadlines to be met, phonecalls to be made, leads to be followed up.
The big picture can often get lost in the big buzz of business. This is why we feel so strongly about Small Business Saturday. This is really not just about one day. One day is earmarked to highlight small businesses but it is really about ensuring that small businesses have a voice and presence.
It is about bringing together like minded people who encourage and support each other. It is about creating a strong community feel in the business world.
We were invited to the launch of Small Business Saturday at 10 Downing Street today and WOW!! What an absolute honour to be alongside the other 100 businesses that were chosen to represent Small Business across the UK. The versatility, the creativity, the integrity and the fabulous personalities were all there in an absolutely amazing setting so steeped in history.
So thank you to the small business saturday team for bringing us together. We’re really looking forward to being part of the Winter Arts Market alongside other local smallbiz100 businesses and celebrating the independence, the uniqueness and the delightfulness of being a small business. Please head along to the Anglican Cathedral if you are in Liverpool to support small businesses or to your local farmers market or to your local high street and show your local small business that you care.
