'Tis the season to shop for our loved ones! For small business owners this is the moment of truth, the big question "will I meet my sales goals I set for myself almost a year ago?" is answered. A year's worth of work and marketing, all while hoping that we have done enough to convince our friends and followers to give us a chance over big box stores. The thing is, it is more than a sales goal, it is our dreams in action. Every time we receive a notification a purchase has been made we do a little happy dance, we feel even more inspired to continue, we feel like what we do matters and makes a difference.
