Support Small Businesses: 7 Simple Action Steps

Support Small Businesses: 7 Simple Action Steps


2 minute read

This past week I found out that a company in China stole my Holy Family artwork and is selling it on its website and through Facebook ads. Several strongly worded emails later, it appears they have no intention of taking it down without proper evidence that the artwork belongs to me (I have to laugh to keep from crying honestly) I've prayed so many deliverance prayers this week, and now my prayer is simply "Jesus, you take care of it!"

As we come up on Amazon Prime day, I encourage you to look around at the small shops, both online and in your local community, and make a point to support them. Here's how:

🛍️  Shop thoughtfully on Amazon. Take a look at the seller you are purchasing from - is it a legitimate business or is it a "business" who makes its money from ripping off an original idea or concept and then manufacturing & selling it for a couple of bucks?

🛍️  When in doubt, purchase from the business's main website. For example, if you're looking at Catholic books on Amazon, consider purchasing directly from the publisher's website instead.

🛍️  Follow the hashtag #smalloverprime (or #shopcatholic, or #buycatholic) on Instagram for a collection of Catholic artisans that are doing the Lord's work every day in creating awesome goods while supporting their families. Will you consider making a purchase with one of them today?

🛍️  If you see something fishy, say something. I can't thank you all enough for being my trusted watch dogs. When you see something suspicious you always message me, and for that I am so grateful!

🛍️  Who are some of your favorite small businesses? Sign up for their email lists so you can keep in touch & score some sale coupons, too.

🛍️  Pray for God to guide + protect your favorite Catholic shops from evil so that they may do His work.

🛍️  Tell your friends and family how much you love the business (it could even be as simple as sharing this post)

Thank you all for your amazing support. I encourage you discover (and rediscover) some Catholic businesses who are making a huge impact through their goods. Consider making a purchase with one of them today.

Love you! ♥️
