Be nice to your small business owners this holiday season!

I saw a status update about this topic yesterday, so I wanted to expand on that and share with you.

It's the holidays, yay!  This is probably the most hectic, and headache inducing time of year for most people. But at the same time, it's the most rewarding.  Hot chocolate, sparkling lights, being around friends and family, and of course family traditions make the cold, dark nights worth it.  And of course the shopping. Oh boy the shopping!

Since many of you like to shop at small businesses, I just wanted to put this out there. Be nice to your small business owners.  Well, be nice to everyone in general. But just know that small business owners are driving themselves crazy and ragged trying to keep up with holiday dead lines, while keeping a smiling face.  A lot of holiday time is spent away from their own families so that they can cater to you and make sure you are a happy customer.

So definitely be considerate that they are working to the bone to get things done. And be aware that once their item/job is done, they typically have to ship that item. At that point, it's basically out of their hands.  We do not have control over mail delivery!

Just remember that this is a happy time for everyone!  Happy Holidays!
