Small Business Saturday: Why I Love My Small Business
It’s Small Business Saturday this Saturday the 3rd December, where we celebrate the UK’s small businesses and what we have to offer. It also encourages people to shop with the independent retailers in the lead up to Christmas.
Of course, I love getting involved in things like this. I think it’s a great opportunity for my micro business and also showcases other businesses that I may not have even heard of. I still have a few presents to buy for so I will definitely be using this as a chance to get my last few bits. You can use the small business finder over on the Small Business Saturday website to search some of the finest small businesses the UK has to offer.
I thought I would round up in a few short points why I love my small business and what it means to me when you buy from me.
It means I can work flexibly around my young family.
I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old so being able to work from home, doing what I do means I can fit work in around the needs of my children. A typical week will see me squeezing work into a few hours in the evenings and the morning and afternoon my littlest one is in pre-school. It’s hard work but it works for us.
It means the world to me when you buy one of my items.
I know what I make will touch your hearts and for you to entrust that in me is a true honour. I love being able to take a child’s print and create a timeless keepsake that will be cherished forever.
It pays the bills BUT I love the work.
I know I am very lucky to be in a position that I enjoy my job! It is hard and stressful at times wondering if I’ll make enough to pay the bills each month but its working and I do love doing what I do.
Reading your comments and reviews.
When you receive your finished item it’s so heart-warming to hear your lovely comments about something that I made with my own fair hands and it give me a little warm glowing buzz inside.
I could go on and on, I really could. I truly love being a small business. I hope this has given you a bit of insight to Beanstalk Keepsakes. Pop a comment below if you have any questions or would like to hear more about what I do.
