Hey all! It's been a while since I have written a post but I wanted to check back in.
There is a lot of stuff going on in the world right now and I want to start off by saying first of all, be safe!
Things are difficult for a lot of people financially, however, with the stimulus package coming our way, I wanted to take a moment to encourage people to support their local small businesses.
The whole point of a stimulus check is to put more money into the economy, and while I don't think it is a good idea to just go spend it all right away, I think it is important to remember our local businesses at this time.
Of all the businesses that are struggling right now, some of the local ones have been hit the hardest, and yet they are an important part of every community.
As an online reseller, I also know that it is tough for a lot of us to make sales with the way the economy is right now, but I can't imagine how hard it must be for some small businesses with only a local audience to keep the doors open.
That being said, the other day my wife needed a laptop since she is working from home right now and will be doing online training later on in the year.
Although, I know I could have gotten the best deal on eBay, I instead went to a local computer shop that has only been open for 7 months and ended up purchasing a computer and a Go Pro for my YouTube videos from him.
Anyways... just wanted to remind everyone to keep your local businesses in mind when spending money in the coming days.
