One of the things I love most about this community is that we all have something in common. Whether it’s a love of yoga, health and wellness, fitness, entrepreneurship, travel, etc., one of the things that makes YBC® such a great platform is that we all have some sort of shared interests. Today I want to highlight one of those shared interests: supporting small businesses.
If you’ve been following YBC® on Facebook, then you probably saw my vlog about connecting small business owners and side hustlers with other YBC® community members. I was overwhelmed with the amount of feedback we received and I’ve put together a list of all your submissions to help bring awareness and exposure to your small businesses and side hustles so that they can better reach their target audience and hopefully you’ll love what they have to offer as much as I do!
Let me know in the comments below if you have a great side hustle and are looking to better connect with your audience as well!
