Be Kind and Support Local Businesses
I think for those of us lucky to be in business and at least breaking even or running a little in the red, we should now start looking at how we can help and bless others. I have seen a few shops supporting their local restaurants and favorite watering holes, and I think that is great. I think this is something that IF, and ONLY IF you can buy lunch from your favorite local restaurant, you should. Not only will it boost the morale of the local restaurant but also the morale in your shop. This can span from flower stores to music teachers and personal trainers who’ve had to move their businesses online. I know we are all watching our money closely, and we should; however, if a kind gesture can be done, let it be done.
“I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” – Stephen Grellet
