Promote Small Business: Big Dreams Come In Small Packages

Walking inside the chapel brings an immediate sense of peace. Burning candles engraved with pictures of saints accent the small stained glass windows (visitors can purchase these candles at the gift shop); small, simple wooden pews seem to invite humility. The altar is watched over by a statue of the Virgin Mary. You do not have to be of the Catholic faith to appreciate the spiritual aura; it is comforting to people from all walks of life. Sit a while and take in the aura. If there are other people, wait until they filter out. It is an invigorating experience to be alone in this place. If you’re more interested in photo opportunities, there are plenty. Take time to look at the wall plaques representing the Stations of the Cross.

Toiletries – If you are stopping at a hotel even once or twice, don’t bother carrying your own shampoo, soap, or toothpaste from home. Hotels throw away the little bottles of toiletries even if you don’t use them, so take them! If you have to take your own supplies from home, measure them into smaller containers. Put those into plastic zip-lock bags in case of leakage. Do not overfill the small containers – contents may expand in the heat.

Basil is very popular and easy to grow. Basil leaves are used in Italian pasta sauce along with oregano. The longer the sauce is simmered, the more flavor is released from the basil leaves.

Fresh basil can be chopped and incorporated into salads, pastas and vegetable dishes.

Small and large movie theatres quite frequency have some kind of sweepstakes. So many times you can sign up for a ‘points’ card — and get a couple free tickets at the same time. And then on top of that — enter the sweepstakes to win MORE tickets! So definitely a win-win situation!

Another myth is that small businesses will expand by hiring more employees. That may be true for a very few business startups like Microsoft, but for the vast majority growth is measured in increases of one or two employees not hundreds. If i open a 24 hour a day 365 day convenience store no matter how successful it is, I will only employ so many workers. Even if I buy another store a mile away and staff it; have I increased the number of people working? The answer is probably not. Because if i hadn’t open that convenience store someone else would have. Sometimes, especially for small businesses, it really is a zero sum equation.

You can buy fancy glass bottles or use cellophane or even ziploc bags to store your bath salts. Glass is always preferable when using essential oils, but plastic van be used for short term storage.

Probably the biggest offender is the lack of clarity around the specifics of the project. Vague objectives lead to confusion. Reducing or confirming the scope of the project, and getting detailed on what you want to experience once the project is completed, can make a big difference. Put it in writing for reference.
