I know first-hand that small business is fun, stressful, exciting, hard work, all-consuming and unbelievably rewarding. I also know that small businesses make a big difference to everyone every day.
Whether it is providing a fantastic product or service, employing people, sponsoring a local sports team or adding to the vibrancy of my community, I know how important they are and I know what they are doing is brilliant.
That is why I think Small Business Day – Small Business Matters is so important. It gives me and everyone else the chance to say thank you and for all of us to let small business owners know that we think they are pretty awesome.
