“I think you’ll find that you’ll get a better-individualized product that will make a bit more of a wow factor when given than when you go through one of these big catalogue mail order firms.” – Adam Moore

Are you trying to support local businesses during COVID? It is important to think about small businesses and support them during the holiday season—especially during this pandemic. While the usual Christmas parties that support some of these businesses are not happening, there are still ways to show appreciation to your own employees while helping your local community. We all just need to think a bit more creatively.

In this episode, we discuss how important it is to try and support local and small businesses through this difficult time. We talk about some ways to work together and use this opportunity to bond with the community. We emphasize the importance of spending locally. We also share some creative gift ideas that you can use to show your appreciation to your team and clients.

“It’s not really a question of this is something we should do. It’s really something we have to do because the effects of not supporting our small business community—it’s a domino effect.”– Cloe Guidry-Reed

“You and I are big proponents of the economic impact and understanding the power of the dollar when it moves through a community.”– Adam Moore

“I think even in this season we forget that ‘Oh yeah, I can go get that printing. I can go talk to this marketing firm and have this cool logoed gift that I can give out and you’re supporting, you know, your brother or sister right there in the small business community. What a wonderful thing that is!” – Adam Moore
