AdviCoach® Suggests Ways to Support Businesses as We Celebrate National Small Business Week in May
SOUTHBURY, CT--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2012) - When you stop to think about the characteristics that typify the entrepreneur in today's oftentimes unpredictable, ever changing world, risk taking, decisiveness, creativity, and most of all perseverance are just a few traits that come to mind. With the National Small Business Week beginning on May 21st, Brian Miller, COO and president of AdviCoach®, says, "With more and more people choosing business ownership as a means to make a living and secure their financial future, let's all look for ways to invest in making our community service providers succeed."
"AdviCoaches work with many small business owners who are hard-working, community-conscience people who enjoy contributing to their community by providing a well-needed product or service," says Miller. "I encourage people to shop at these stores on a routine basis. The better businesses are doing in our towns, the better for the community as a whole."
Miller suggests a few simple, but creative ways people can help entrepreneurs in their community succeed:
- Use cash versus a credit card. Card companies charge a fee to process payments.
- Involve business owners in school and church programs.
- Refer a friend or neighbor when discovering a great product or service in the community.
- Acknowledge good service, and good products and services when you experience them.
"Keep your money in your community," says Miller. "It really does take the residents of a community to help the business community succeed."
