Super Bowl 50 weekend is here … the big showdown between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers !
I must confess that I’m not a huge football fan. I’m not one to rush home to watch a game, but I do enjoy actually going to a game … I’m sure it’s the ambiance.
The Super Bowl is different. For me, it’s mostly about the party … being with friends, the food & drinks. Its fun to have friendly debates on whose team is better. It’s fun seeing the million dollar commercials. It’s fun watching the halftime show (will there be any wardrobe malfunctions?). It’s the fun party ambiance centered around a football game called the Super Bowl 🙂
Being a small business owner, I was happy when I saw a segment on the news a couple days ago. It was about how the Super Bowl planners were using the local small businesses during the week building up to the game. They interviewed a local businesswoman who owned a bakery. They placed the largest order she ever had in her 10 years of being in business … How exciting !! You can view the clip here.
As a local small business owner, I know that every day can’t be super exciting. For me, what is exciting about owning my own business is having steady repeat clients, while always welcoming new ones! Its knowing that my hard work and persistence is paying off by earning an income to help support my family!
So while it’s a one in a million shot of getting a Super Bowl type client, we can support our own local small businesses in our own communities … one purchase at a time … it all adds up. Make a difference in your community ~ #SHOPSMALL.
