As the leaves turn and the air gets crisper, another exciting season comes into view: the season of giving and supporting local communities. Small Business Saturday, nestled between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, is a day dedicated to celebrating the heart and soul of our communities – small businesses!
This year, on November 27th, we're not just marking a date on the calendar. We're celebrating a journey of passion and dedication for other small businesses and Soy Delicious Candles.
What is Small Business Saturday?
Small Business Saturday started in 2010 as a way to bring attention to the impact small businesses have on our communities and economies.
Unlike the frenzied spree of Black Friday and the clicks of Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday invites us to step inside the welcoming doors of local shops or visit digital storefronts.
It’s a day to recognize the dreams and efforts of entrepreneurs and small business owners. And it’s a day Soy Delicious holds close to its heart.
The Impact of Small Businesses
Small businesses are more than just retail outlets. They’re the dreams of real people.
For every $1 spent at a small business, approximately 67¢ stays in the local community. This cycle of support fosters growth, community development, and innovation.
And every product purchased from a small business like Soy Delicious isn't just a transaction – it's a personal connection, a story shared, and a dream nurtured.
The Role of Women and Moms in Small Businesses
A significant portion of small businesses are spearheaded by women and moms. Nationally, women-owned businesses account for 42% of all U.S. businesses, employing 9.4 million workers, and generating revenue of about $1.9 trillion.
The rise of mompreneurs – mothers who start businesses to achieve better work-life balance and provide for their families – is a notable trend. These women combine the nurturing aspects of motherhood with the resilience and leadership required in business. They create companies that are not only economically successful but also empathetic and community-oriented.
At Soy Delicious Candles, we recognize and applaud the determination and spirit of women and moms in the small business space. Their contributions are pivotal not just in driving economic growth but also in shaping a more inclusive and diverse business world.
The Story of Soy Delicious
Soy Delicious Candles began as a small spark of inspiration and grew into a beacon of luxury and sustainability.
Our story is woven with threads of dedication to craft, a commitment to quality, and a passion for creating something truly unique. Our candles, known for their long-lasting, sumptuous scents and eco-friendly soy wax, are more than just a source of light – they're an experience.
Each candle is handcrafted, ensuring that every flicker and aroma is a journey in itself. We take pride in our unique scents, hand-poured love, and the special touch of a reusable, luxurious container.
Our journey through the years reflects our evolution and the milestones we have achieved as a brand that cares for the environment and indulges the senses.
