A small town is a place where neighbors wave, people smile at one another, faces are familiar, everyone you know knows someone else you know, and the local family owned coffee shop employees know your donut of choice. 💛A small town community is a place I never imagined I would be after growing up in the ever-growing hustle & bustle of the Chicago suburbs. The small town learning curve for me was figuring out how to survive without all of the brick & mortar companies that were familiar to me.
What I’ve come to know and love is that a small town is a place that thrives on built-from-the ground-up, family-owned businesses.
It's a community where small businesses thrive & survive on the camaraderie of its people. If we don't support these people, we don't truly live in our town. 💛When you buy from a chain company/store, you’re helping contribute to the retirement of the millionaire or billionaire owners and CEO’s. When you buy from a small business owner, you’re helping pay for that family’s groceries, student loans or an outstanding hospital bill. You’re likewise contributing to someone’s ability to have more time with their children & family. 💛So, instead of scrolling right by posts of passionate distributors, have an open heart & mind.
These are people you know. They are small business owners eager to share their passion and provide for their families. If it’s something you already buy, think of how much further your money will go when you support the ones you know & love. At the very least you can cheer on those you love from the sidelines. After all, the whole world needs more of what a small town has 💛
