Take a moment to pause when you take out your wallet this holiday season. Think, Can I Shop Small Business?
Many of my fellow small business owners have all heard the following when promoting their business to family and friends:
-That’s a lot for a pair leggings.
-I can get wax melts at Walmart for cheaper.
-Flintstones vitamins work just fine.
-Who pays that much for mascara?
-Greens… I drink V8, it has a serving of veggies and fruits!
-Lose weight, my cousin drinks that apple cider vinegar stuff and she lost 5 lbs once!
-I don’t need fancy cookware, I just buy new ones from Walmart every few months.
-I can travel and do all I want with my old suitcases and bags.
-Ulta and Sephora have good deals, sometimes.
-I can buy affordable jewelry at Walmart.
-I can get all I need for my holiday shopping at Target.
-I know what my current ESCO is billing me and I don’t have time to switch.
Most direct sales and small business companies offer not only Superior products in their category, but financial freedom to their owners. And no, the money you are spending on non quality products actually doubles when you have to replace or buy new products that never worked at all.
Direct sales aren’t always well received, and that’s fine. For some reason when your friend starts selling these things, many of us find every reason to not support them, rather than the big corporations. But what if you were helping your friend pay for her kids Christmas?!
If you are a distributor, ambassador, representative, presenter, consultant or owner of your own business then I’m sure you’ve heard this reasoning from your friends☝️☝️
*If I have the chance to support my friends, over a billion dollar company that doesn’t care about me, or their product quality, I’m going to. I have shared some links for our family and friends sites for you to use this holiday shopping season.
DIRECT SALES AND PRIVATE OWNER FRIENDS, GO AHEAD AND DROP YOUR LINK IN COMMENTS BELOW PLUS ANY HOLIDAY DEALS YOU MAY HAVE GOING ON.
AND IF YOU ARE A FRIEND READING THIS, MAYBE CHOOSE TO SUPPORT SOME SMALL BUSINESSES (families) THIS SEASON!
