It brings me great joy to give back to my clients and support them as they have supported me. There’s no better time of the year for us all to show love to our local communities than the holiday season. This year, consider joining me in the Small Business Saturday movement — I did the work for you and rounded up a list of amazing businesses to support, all you have to do is have fun shopping. Small Business Saturday is November 30th, but I think we should break the Black Friday cycle and support them year round!
