We hear quite frequently now about the importance of a successful small business. And while we may not realize it at first, but those local barber shops, clothing boutiques, and independent CT insurance agencies are the life blood of the America dream, and without them, our country would not be the same. Just take a drive down your town’s main street and see how many businesses are within a mile stretch. Then think about how many people work in those businesses. And then finally think about the number of families effected by person who works in each business. You’re right, that’s a lot of folks in your small New England community.
Just look at the statistics which prove how vital small businesses are not only to our community, but our local municipal economy as well:
-About 50% of all private sector employees are employed by small businesses
-$68 out of every $100 spent at small businesses returns to the local economy
-two out of every three new jobs are created by small businesses
When you support small businesses, you’re supporting your local economy. Think about the amount of people you can effect by choosing a small and local business over a corporate enterprise. Now we aren’t here to bash big business because they do their fair share as well, but we’re saying it’s well worth paying the extra few dollars at your local hardware store or sporting goods store than going to one of the chains. Everyone wins when small businesses succeed. So join Paradiso Insurance in our every day effort to make small businesses grow and become successful!
