Caruso’s Saturday Shot!


Happy Saturday Everyone! And happy last day of the month!
Can you believe we are ALREADY done with March?! Where is the time going?
That’s why it is SO important that we enjoy each day & try to live life to the fullest.
It is important that no matter how hectic our lives may get we need to still find the time, even if for just 5 minutes to relax and enjoy life. It is also important to spend time with your loved ones before it may be too late. With the time just flying by its important that we do not take life for granted. So stop stressing & enjoy life…you only get one.
 
 I know you are used to seeing beach & sunset pictures so this photo is a little different.
 It was taken in Northern California from a lookout spot in the Oakland Hills. Our world is so amazing, there are always new places and new things to see. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend & much happiness for the next month!
 
Bring on April!

Think Big, Shop Small ~ Spread the Word…


 

 Let’s start a movement…

SHOP SMALL STORES

As a local independent broker, I know how hard it is to compete with larger companies, but you can make it with good customer skills, marketing and word of mouth. Repeat customers and referrals is what keeps me in business. So let’s raise awareness of the importance of patronizing small businesses. 

Shop Small Stores is a buy-local campaign which promotes strengthening local economies through the support of local independent retailers. Buy gifts in small stores, eat meals at small restaurants.

As we do the rest of our holiday shopping and entertaining, let’s think first of small independent companies. Shop at your local toy or book store (if one still exists). Stop at your local home grown coffee shop or café and pick up a gift certificate. This will bring back business to the small business at a later time.

Small Business Saturday was a success to many towns and retailers that participated. However, we need to keep the movement going. Let’s all continue the movement by shopping in our local independent stores every weekend.  Let’s get the local economy rolling… 

Think Big, Shop Small.  Spread the word…

 Don’t forget to reduce, reuse and recycle!
