Being Thankful by Giving Back

It’s November, the time of the year that we begin to celebrate the season of being thankful, and giving back. As much as I enjoy this time of the year, I believe it is important that we always try and take the time to be thankful and give back. There are so many ways we can show how thankful we are like just simply giving back to those businesses in our local communities. Many do not realize how much of an important role that local business owners play in their communities. Aside from the people they hire and the money they spend, successful local businesses make a difference. Why not take the time to celebrate and support those around us where we live and work in. One way we can do this is by businesses such as R81wraps working together with other neighboring local businesses to support one another. How many of you actually know the name of the business owner who has an office across the street from your office? How about the name of the business owners you see every day on the walk to work from the train? Forgotten are the days when neighbors brought brownies to your doorstep as a welcome gift. The unfortunate side effect of technology is less face time with neighbors. Even more so when it comes to business owners and their neighboring businesses. We all have the best intentions, but as business owners, we get so focused on the day-to-day operations and don’t find the time to simply introduce ourselves around the neighborhood. How thankful we should be to remember that each community has its own personality. Business owners can help and learn the most from those that have similar experiences within the same community. Therefore we should always give back by being partners in success. Let’s face it – you open a business to make money. Many small businesses have to close each year due to the struggle of not being able to generate enough money. Marketing is often a huge part of business success, and working together with your neighboring businesses can be a great way to bring people in the door. This way of showing how thankful you are is something that has been very important to R81wraps. We take pride in what we do and we support those around us as we understand that we are all in business for the same reason. So for those of you out there that are like most at this time of the year, who show how thankful you are by taking the time to give back to your communities, as we all should. Be sure to also take the time, not just this month but all throughout the year to give back and show your gratitude to those local businesses in your community as well.Share:
