Support Small Business Saturday

Today is the  2nd annual Small Business Saturday®. The day, sponsored nationally by American Express, is designed to support small businesses during the busiest shopping season of the year. 

According to the 2011 Small Business Saturday Consumer Spend Survey, 89 million people said they plan to shop “small” Saturday.

According to industry experts there are approximately 27.9 million small businesses in the United States. Many of these businesses are solo businesses with no employees. Shopping small this Saturday is a great way to support your local and online small business communities. When you support small local businesses a greater percentage of the money remains in your local economy.

Shopping small benefits everyone. Shop your local mom and pop business this weekend, support an indie or small business online, shop Amazon via your favorite website or blog or take your family out for a meal at a local non-chain restaurant. Your support will go a long way with a small business.

You can shop small with Get Career Help this weekend by taking advantageof the Small Business Saturday Special . If you are employed and considering a career change in 2012, this special will help you take charge of your career and promote yourself to happiness.

Enjoy Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but I hope that you will also pledge to support at least one small business this weekend. Your small support can make a big difference!

  • The shopping experience can also be influenced by other shoppers. For example, research from a field experiment found that male and female shoppers who were accidentally touched from behind by other shoppers left a store earlier than people who had not been touched and evaluated brands more negatively, resulting in the Accidental Interpersonal Touch effect.
