November is the month of giving thanks, and FreshLime is most thankful for small businesses! We love to watch the creativity of entrepreneurs unfold and create something successful. We especially love to bring our expertise into the mix and really help businesses reach their full potential. Hopefully you followed along with us this month as we featured several small and local businesses from across the board, and to wrap up, we’d like to let all businesses know why we love them. We’re thankful for you and your hard work!
FreshLime loves small business, because:
We Value Creativity
FreshLime is all about the creativity that small businesses require to grow and thrive. From the original business plan, to the marketing methods, we love to explore with you, the business owners, to find out what’s best for your business. We know how much creative energy goes into formulating an idea for a business, creating a business plan, putting your plan into action, and trying all sorts of marketing methods to find out what’s working and what’s not. Businesses are always changing and evolving in order to become successful, and we find that both exciting and challenging. The good news is, we’re always up for a challenge when it comes to helping businesses grow!
We’re Inspired by Hard Work
FreshLime believes wholeheartedly in the idea of ‘work hard, play hard’, and that’s exactly what we do. We are able to thrive because of the inspiration we get from all of the business owners we get to work with. We know that sometimes you wish you had a 9-5 instead of a 24/7, but we also see that you are invested in your business and willing to do what it takes to make it succeed. In fact, in a survey from New York Enterprise Report, we learned that small business owners work twice as much as regular employees. They also found that over 30% of small business owners reported working more than 50 hours per week, and 25% said they work more than 60 hours a week. And guess what? We’re right there with you! As much as we love your hard work, don’t forget to find time to relax– you deserve it.
We Gravitate Toward Innovation
Technology and customer needs are constantly changing, and so are small businesses. You have to grow and innovate in order to keep up and succeed. FreshLime loves innovation, and we’re always working to make the lives of business owners easier and more stress-free, so they can do what they do best- run a business. Innovation is a big part of running any business, and we value that. We are drawn to innovation and that’s why we focus on helping you create and innovate, so your business can grow and grow.
YOU Make a Difference
When you run a business, you can find inspiration in the fact that you are making a difference everyday. You’re making a difference for your community, who benefits from your quality work and customer service. You’re making a difference to your employees, who are able to feed their families because of your creativity and expertise. You’re making a difference to the economy by continuing to bring more and more money in because of your hard work (Did you know there are several tax deductions for small business owners?) And of course, you’re making a difference to us at FreshLime, by inspiring us with your constant growth and thirst for success! Currently, in the United States, there are over 30 million small businesses. Those small businesses have created jobs for roughly 60 million people! If that doesn’t make you feel good and show you how awesome you are, we don’t know what will!
We love small businesses, and we appreciate you letting us come along for the ride. If you are still in a limbo and you need some extra help with your business, don’t hesitate to set up a free consultation with one of our experts. And remember, we’re thankful for YOU!
