Small Business Remains Good Business!

This week is National Small Business Week. Please remember to support small businesses because small business has always been, and will always remain, Good Business.

Every large businesses was once small. From McDonald’s and Starbucks to Microsoft and Apple. Nobody starts out as a large business, they begin as a small business, and if a variety of factors fall into place (hard work, determination, smart business planning and other factors far too numerous to mention) they have the opportunity to grow.

Small business is the backbone of America. It is every small diner and non-chain restaurant, independent clothing store and just about every convenience store not named 7-11. They are the places where you can find unique and interesting items, not just the “same old thing” that you can find in every cookie-cutter chain outlet.

I have written two previous blogs about National Small Business week, so at the risk of repeating myself, I will direct my readers there:

2012 – https://theguyfrom4staff.wordpress.com/2012/05/22/small-business-is-good-business/

2013 – https://theguyfrom4staff.wordpress.com/2013/06/17/small-business-is-still-good-business/

In 2014, small business remains good business, and your support is important as ever.  Support entrepreneurship. Support Small Business!

May is National Cancer Research Month

Most people already know that October is National Breast Cancer Month.  Some may even know that September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. What many people probably don’t know is that May is National Cancer Research Month (as passed by Congress in 2007).

Cancer patients, survivors and medical experts all agree: cancer research saves lives. Today, there are over 12 million cancer survivors in the United States. Many of these survivors could not have made it without all the advances in scientific research. Those advances have helped improve people’s health and enabled many to live longer lives.

Countless people have been affected by cancer in one fashion or another, whether a family member, relative, co-worker or friend. For me, it’s personal.  I lost both my mother and sister to cancer.

Cancer affects the young and old alike. It does not discriminate by age, gender, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, or any other factor.  Let’s get real… Cancer Sucks!

I have faith that, one day, all the great research will lead to a cure for cancer.  My only hope is that they find a cure soon, so more lives can be saved. When that day comes, we can celebrate only one “cancer month”, the month to celebrate the cure for all cancers.

This Sunday we will celebrate Mother’s Day.  Wishing all mothers a very happy and healthy Mother’s Day!
