Small businesses also stimulate growth by providing employment, whether it be to high school students who want to earn a bit of pocket money for that new pair of shoes, or a concert ticket for their favorite band, through to a mum/dad who has a young family and only has time to do a few hours a day while their children are at school or child care. They can also do alot more then you realise, like sponsor a sports team, dontate their service/products as raffle prizes for community events.
