If you're like most, you often refer to your business as your baby. Sure, why not? It’s precious to you, it’s a lot of work, and it’s a part of who you are. Imagine if your small business could talk. If it could thank you, like someday you hope your children will. What would it say to you? I can only imagine…
A love note from your small business:
You gave birth to me one day, long ago. I was the sparkle in your eye, an idea growing inside of you, impatient for the day when I would become a reality.
I know that I’m not an easy child. I know that I’m demanding and always hungry for your attention. Thank you for staying up with me into the wee hours of the night and carrying me with you everywhere you go. I’m your most demanding child, yet you nurture and care for me like no one else ever could. Thank you for feeding me with your creativity, passion, and endless devotion.
I wish to give you something in return. I wish to give you the gift of freedom; I wish to give you a performance for which you will be forever proud. I wish to give you security and financial independence. Mostly, I wish to give you the means to help others as you do so well, and the satisfaction of knowing that this world is a better place because of you–because of us.
Perhaps I’m still too small to give you all of that right now, but we’ll grow together. Please know that gratitude comes in many forms and, while I may not always give back to you in the ways you expect, there is a gift in every moment that we spend together. Like the child you hold close to your heart I will bring you joy, even in the most trying of times.
Thank you for bringing me into this world.
