Business owners know how important is to have a support system to make sure daily operations run smoothly.
Doesn't matter if you make cakes, sell real estate, or run a cafe; you can't run a successful business without a little help with your friends.
When at all possible, I prefer to do business with local businesses. In fact, a recent report from The UPS Store suggests that other business owners share my sentiment as they found that
“more than 90 percent of small business owners would prefer to do business with other local business owners.”
So true! In my business I work with local attorneys, accountants, and bankers to make sure my clients get referred to people I know are going to take care of them.
Same applies in my personal life whether it be ordering a birthday cake for one of my sons, or getting an electrical inspection done on my home.
It's important to be to buy and support local businesses.
This video from UPS pretty much sums that up.
Do you support your local businesses?
