The Great News Letter

Today is March 29th, and welcome to The Daily Quote – a podcast designed to kickstart your day in a positive way. I’m your host, Andrew McGivern, and I’m happy you are here with me today.

Today, we’re celebrating National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day, a day to honor the heart and soul of our neighborhoods, the small businesses. It’s the day we salute those who put the ‘family’ in ‘family business,’ often bringing more drama than a Thanksgiving dinner.

In light of this, I’ve chosen a quote from Michael Gerber, an author famously known for his expertise on small businesses.

Michael E. Gerber is an American author and entrepreneur, best known for his book “The E-Myth Revisited”.

Great gook by the way…

He’s recognized for his expertise in small business entrepreneurship, leadership, and management. Gerber’s work focuses on the challenges small businesses face and offers solutions to overcome these obstacles, emphasizing the importance of working on the business rather than in it.

And building systems and processes instead of ‘winging it’.

His contributions have made him a leading authority in the field of business development and coaching.

Michael Gerber once said…

“The entrepreneur is not really interested in doing the work; he is interested in creating the way the company operates.”

This insight captures the essence of what many mom and pop business owners experience. They start with a passion, not just to sell a product or provide a service, but to create an operation that reflects their values and vision.

On National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day, we recognize that these businesses aren’t just about transactions; they’re about legacy and community. They’re the dreamers who build their world, one day at a time, with a personal touch that big box stores just can’t replicate.

So, let’s take a moment to appreciate the mom and pop shops in our lives. They do more than just work in their businesses; they’re building a living, breathing entity that represents their dreams and serves their community.

Thank you for tuning in to The Daily Quote. Remember, every time you support a local business, you’re not just buying a product; you’re helping someone’s dream thrive. Until we meet again, let’s keep those dreams alive and kicking, one small shop at a time.
