How do you support other business owners in your community? Purchasing their services and products is helpful to the business owner, but there are many ways to help them for free. Share their social media posts with your followers; sign up for their email newsletter; download their podcast; email the business owner directly when you notice they do something you like. Reach out to those who seem like they could use some extra support. Leave a positive review of their business online. Make an introduction. The easy action for you this week is to do one of those non-monetary support actions for another business owner you want to help succeed.
