Small Business Saturday
Small Business Saturday is quickly approaching, and I wanted to share a few of my favorite brands with you!
If you are unfamiliar with Small Business Saturday, here’s a quick overview:
Small Business Saturday is observed as a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday and offers the opportunity for holiday shoppers to patronize small and local businesses.
I personally vouch for the quality, character, support, and customer service of each business listed below.
Not ONLY are they exceptionally great at WHAT they do but HOW they do it too.
The ‘HOW’ is important here, considering so many businesses can sometimes lack originality.
In the business world, especially the Small Business World, it is extremely important to FIND YOUR OWN.
Only in originality will you THRIVE and THRIVE WELL.
As each of the business owners below have found their own, I encourage you to do so too.
Whether you own a business or not, ORIGINALITY and being AUTHENTICALLY you will ALWAYS be KEY!
Here’s a message: the WORLD needs Y-O-U just the way you are. So never imitate or try to duplicate, you can find someone who inspires you but ALWAYS BE YOU!
So, let’s get started, shall we?

Samantha Niedfeldt of Advanced SkinCare Solutions
Samantha Niedfeldt of Advanced SkinCare Solutions is a licensed Cosmetologist and Esthetician who is focused on helping you obtain clear, hydrated, and healthy skin. I’ve learned establishing a relationship with an Esthetician can be much more beneficial than constant visits to the Dermatologist. Although Dermatologist appointments are sometimes necessary, you tend to wait for months for maybe a 30-minute visit. Whereas an Esthetician takes the time to get to know you and your skin and develop a detailed plan on how to improve. Healthy skin is in, so if you’re wanting to improve your skin, be sure to reach out to Advanced SkinCare Solutions by following the link below.
