The Recessionista on HLN Making It In America: Support Small Business
Today is a big day at The Recessionista. I’ll be appearing on Headline News Making It In America today, Tuesday Jan 29th at 4:40 pm EST/1:40 pm PT. I look forward to having the chance to appear and tell my story. It’s not easy to build a small business in the midst of a global recession. When you’re a small business, the business becomes an extension of you. The biggest investment for a Small Business Owner is sweat equity/hard work and personal savings, rather than big budget marketing, advertising , TV campaigns or TV appearances. I’m sure many bloggers and small business owners know what I am talking about.
The Recessionista has grown from a humble start as a free site on Google Blogspot using Blogger to the more fully functioning larger website it is today. Social Media has played a huge role in the growth of this small business, enabling growth via zero budget marking. Making a personal connection to readers and building following have been key to the growth of The Recessionista. Thanks to everyone who visits here and reads this blog/website for being part of that success. I’ll be discussing social business today on the HLN program and I hope you will all tune in.
