“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." ~ Nelson Mandela
The idea seems simple. Almost too simple. Give other people light so they can shine too. Share information about their businesses within your networks--extend and broaden the reach so we can ALL be heard and supported.
If you've been following me on social media, you're aware that I'm a fan of clapping for others, even when it's not my turn. My small business, Pat's Granola, has been enriched because of this. I will start sharing businesses on my blog that I hope you'll consider when making a purchase for goods and/or services. And, in turn, if you'll share businesses that you've come to know and can recommend, let us know so we can support them too.
Shine the 💡 on…
