When I shop, I prefer ‘Mom and Pop’ style businesses where I can meet the owners and feel a real connection with them. When I buy things online I like to patronize stores owned by the person who makes what I’m buying.
I figure I’m not the only one out there who feels this way, so I thought I’d start a directory of businesses owned by actual humans. If that describes you, please tell me about your biz using this form and I’ll add you to my directory. (I guess I’ll eventually have to come up with rules about sites I won’t link to, but for now it is pretty loose ;)
I can think of lots of you wonderful readers who have great businesses — you may sell on Etsy, maybe you’re a web designer, you’re an architect, you do construction, you’ve got an eBay shop, you sell funny shirts on Cafe Press, … whatever it is, just let me know.
Fill out this form and I’ll get you linked up
There will be no Walmarts or Amazons on this list. Just regular people Living the Dream: working for themselves!
