Seattle Chamber: “It’s Time For Business!”

25 09 2009

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, supporting local businesses rocks! My first post was all about the glory of local businesses – they increase the velocity of money in a community and they improve the economy by hiring and spending locally. Afterall, economic sustainability is a community issue – it’s up to all of us to make smart choices about how we impact our own community.

Seattle is fortunate to be the home of several industry headquarters and an entrepreneurial community. That’s why the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce has launched “It’s Time for Business,” a campaign to promote regional economic recovery. Their website offers the opportunity for businesses to showcase their products and services, as well as events in the area. They’re even kicking off this new campaign with an after hours event at Herban Feast’s Sodo Park on October 14th – allowing business people to network with chamber members from all over Puget Sound and those interested in getting involved.

In this economy, it truly is time for business. The more we support our own businesses, the greater the opportunity each business has to positively influence our community. Together, with a shared vision, we all can make Seattle and the greater Puget Sound area an even better place to work, live, or visit!

Post a job opening, share your achievements, and promote your business! The Seattle Chamber is behind you – tell us why “it’s time for business!” Let’s make this viral!

I applaud your support of small business. As a small business owner I have seen how the vitality of the neighborhood business district reaches far in to the community via support of local schools, non-profits and civic organizations. The cirlce just keeps evolving as the neighbors support the businesses supports the non-profits to improve the community supports the businesses. We all win and enjoy a much nicer place to live.
