Small things are a big deal.
You don't have to be large to be incredibly powerful.
Consider the acorn. The ant. The atom.
Small business accounted for 98% of businesses in BC last year. That's a powerful number. It's Small Business Week, and we're not only celebrating the economic contributions made by local businesses, but also the diversity and cultural signature that each contributes to our communities.
We're also recognizing the big challenges that business owners face as our consumer choices increase. It's in these small daily choices that our actions have the biggest significance, and we can choose to support a local option.
Like a wise man once said:
"If you think you're too small to make a difference, you've never tried to sleep with a mosquito in the room."
