The Domesticate Me Community Small Business Guide
You know I hate to get overly touchy-feely, but if you’re reading this, I consider you a member of my community. I may not have met most of you in real life, but I correspond with many of you on the daily via blog comments, email, and Instagram DM. Hundreds of you tested recipes for one or both of my cookbooks. I’ve been lucky enough to meet some of you in person over the years at panels, cooking classes, and book signings. A few peeps have even met each other at my events and become friends, which brings me an immeasurable amount of joy.
Long story short, we’re all members of a number of different communities, and this one is hugely important to me. (I regularly tell people that my online friends are the smartest, funniest, most wonderful people on the Internet.)
Knowing that many members of this community own or work for small businesses that are struggling right now, I want to do everything in my power to support them. Last week, I asked for anyone with a small business to send me a short description of said business so that I could help spread the word by sharing it here and on Instagram.
And that’s what I’m doing today! I couldn’t be more thrilled to share the Domesticate Me Community Small Business Guide. Below you’ll find lists of badass small businesses in the following categories:
- ART/DESIGN/CREATIVE SERVICES
- BLOGS/APPS/MISCELLANEOUS SERVICES
- BUSINESS SERVICES
- FOOD & BEVERAGE
- HOME GOODS & CRAFTS
- TRAVEL/EVENT SERVICES
My hope is that when you’re considering shopping for something in the coming months, you might peruse these lists to see if there’s a small business that can fulfill your need. Many of these businesses are offering some epic deals to this community!
Small biz owners/employees reading this, I hope we can drum up some serious business for you. I have a good feeling about our communal shopping power…
Love you, mean it. Let’s do our best to support each other. Now and always.
