The Greek philosopher Heraclitus is known for his insistence that change is the fundamental element of the universe. You may be familiar with his quote, "The only thing that is constant is change." For many, change incites a sense of unease at best and at worst, a great fear. In business, however, the ability to change is the mainspring to success. Tradition certainly has its place in establishing quality and integrity within your business operations, but it is change that can propel you to new heights.
In 2010 American Express launched Small Business Saturday in an effort to encourage consumers to buy locally and help sustain their economy. The campaign has been a huge success since its inception and we in McDowell are on board to help our residents find local vendors to celebrate Small Business Saturday not only on one day, but all year long!
