Support small business by making connections

Deb Field, owner of Paper Jam Press, tells it like it is for a small business here in her first blog of the year, 3 Reasons to Support Small Business, and 3 Ways to Do it Better,

Supporting small business through:

  1. Jobs – duh! It is work anyway, and good work if you can get it. Small business operators are the best kind of people to work for, producing quality products & services with care and consideration for their employees, their communities and especially their customers.
  2. Connections – building community where they live, work and play together.
  3. They are us – we relate to each other on a human scale,

Small businesses are simply doing it better!
