27 Apr Small Business Saturday Everyday
I love the concept of shopping in small businesses. You see the social media posts…”Shop Small Business Today!” But why do we only get one day? What about the other 364 days of the year? We all know that when you shop small business you are supporting someone’s dream. Please believe we dream more than once a year.
So I’m creating this site and directory to highlight minority and small businesses in the Tampa Bay area. I want to showcase all of the wonderful businesses in our area and highlight the people behind the business. An opportunity to see who these dreamers are! You never know, you may get inspired to dream too.
Here’s a question for you. How many employees can you have but still be considered a small business? According to Google, it depends on the industry. You could have 500, 1,000 or even 1,500 employees and still be considered a “small business.” In general, nearly all businesses qualify with 500 or fewer employees.
What??? Really?? Yes, I had the same reaction. Hard to believe that 1,500 employees would be considered a small business in some industries.
So let’s see where this journey takes us. See what lessons we learn, what nuggets come out that can possibly help with your business, and find out what it takes to be a small business owner.
