In honor of Small Business Week and the idea of “shopping small” for everything from your groceries to your haircuts, we’re bringing you all the reasons why small business owners are the crème de la crème of the professional world. We know first hand, it can be a serious struggle to make it as an entrepreneur. At Quality Logo Products®, we believe these hard workers deserve more than just a week of recognition, but rather a year’s worth of appreciation (not to mention a few vacations). While we can’t exactly offer an all-expenses-paid trip to the Bahamas or Costa Rica, we can offer flattering words about those who have built their companies from the ground up. Every entrepreneur from the local bakery to the startup fitness studio deserves to be acknowledged for their sheer fortitude.
Here are the top three reasons why small business owners are the best of the best:
They Wear Many Hats: Small business owners do it all when it comes to keeping things running smoothly. From learning how to crunch numbers like the best mathlete to trying their hand at design work, they are natural jacks of all trades. Sometimes it requires a serious amount of googling and YouTube videos, but entrepreneurs do what it takes to get every job done. When it comes to maintaining their business, there’s nothing a small business owner can’t accomplish!
They Make Things Happen: Thriving as a small business owner means overcoming every road block in your path to success. Not only do small business owners have to deal with grumpy landlords demanding rent money, but they also have to retain customers, train new employees, and market with a small budget. This balancing act requires the ability to organize tasks, make adjustments, and above all, always keep emotions in control.
They are Full of Personality: With more than 50% of Americans either owning or working for a small business, it’s important to embrace a unique brand identity. Entrepreneurs infuse their personality in all areas of their business, allowing them to stand out from the crowd. Whether it’s the energetic coffee shop owner who caffeinates her ads with intense imagery or the calm life consultant who uses tranquil blues to decorate his practice, there’s a distinct personality behind every business.
As a small business ourselves (read our origin story… it’s pretty incredible!), we understand the determination, persistence, and dedication it takes to become successful. We work with startups every day and witness firsthand every entrepreneur’s ambitious drive. Rest assured, we’re here to make it easier for small businesses everywhere! From a fully-fledged Clipart Library to products under $1, we’re your allies when it comes to surviving the business battlefield. Call us anytime, rain or shine, and we’ll help you every step of the way as you grow your business.
Alyssa loves food. A LOT. Particularly pizza and popcorn, but she knows beggars can’t be choosers. When she’s not stuffing her face (which is rare), she loves watching movies, playing volleyball and softball, and engaging in any number of interesting shenanigans. If she had to pick a spirit animal, she’d be an otter because they are playful and love to laugh. Most of the time she’s laughing at herself, whether other people are laughing with or at her is to be determined.
