Celebrate Small Businesses With The UPS Store This Month! #SmallBizSalute


May is one of my favorite months of the year. It’s the start of summer, the end of school, my daughters birthday, and I recently found it, small business month! As a small business owner myself, I love working with companies that have my best interest in mind. The UPS Store is one of those companies. The want to celebrate the accomplishments of small businesses and they want to help in any way they can to make your job easier! With more than 4,500 locations nationwide, The UPS Store is committed to helping small business owners everywhere launch and grow their business every day.

In celebration of National Small Business Month (May), The UPS Store is launching #SmallBizSalute an initiative celebrating small business owners in cities across the country. As an extension of The UPS Store’s commitment to the small business community, the Small Biz Salute campaign rewards entrepreneurs for their hard work and gives them an opportunity to network and support each other, through special events and celebrations that bring small business owners together. You know us Small Business owners have to stick together, it’s a tough world out there!

But wait, there’s more from the UPS Store! (sorry, I couldn’t resist, ha!)

In an effort to facilitate the link between small business owners, The UPS Store is launching the month-long campaign to give entrepreneurs in several of the nation’s top small business cities –Minneapolis, Nashville, Phoenix, Houston – special opportunities to make meaningful connections with other entrepreneurs in their communities and gain valuable advice from small business experts. Several local businesses will be selected to pitch business to a panel of judges; one business owner will walk away with $5,000 to help grow their small business.

The pitch competition will give contestants 3 minutes to pitch their business to a live audience and panel of judges and explain how an investment can help grow their business. The best pitch will win $5,000. Contestants can apply online prior to the event. Full rules, eligibility, and the submission form can be found here.

I am SO excited to be attending the Nashville event this week! If you are in the area, why don’t you join me? The event is on Thursday, May 12 from 6-8 p.m. The event will be hosted at Avenue (120 3rd Avenue South, Nashville, TN 37201).

The UPS Store can serve as resource and provide small businesses with unique product and service offerings that help them run their business. I have a coupon code to share with you for their online printing services as well!Use code  SALUTE25 for 25% off their entire online print site.

How can you get involved in the #SmallBizSaulte you ask?

Well, it’s all about supporting small businesses. So this month share some social media love for your favorite small business and share them with your family and friends. I’ll start!
