@rich-brooks You’ve heard of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the newest day, Small Business Saturday. These events share two things in common: each day is key in pumping millions of dollars into the US economy, and each day — unfortunately — is a once-a-year event. Why not support small, online business and direct sales representatives once a MONTH? Welcome to The Biggest Shopping Day of the Month™ (TBSDOTM and #bigshoppingday on Twitter) presented by one of the most productive Facebook business networks, Motivated Business Professionals.Your business is taking part in an increasing trend in America:- There are 27+ million small businesses in the US.- Between 60% and 80% of all new jobs created in our country can be attributed to small business. (source:http://www.getbusymedia.com/small-business-stats)What’s more, spending rose 1.7 percent in the third quarter of 2011, according to Economic Times. Consumers are shopping again; they are looking for us! They need us, and we need them. We can no longer wait for the end-of-year sales to meet the demands of our household needs. The Biggest Shopping Day of the Month™ will give us all an opportunity to grow our businesses and provide more for our families on a monthly basis.What is TBSDOTM? Beginning January 15, 2012*, The Biggest Shopping Day of the Month™ (TBSDOTM) will serve as a vehicle to encourage the continuation of support for the US small business community. By putting more work into our business promotions on a monthly basis we will help to grow our country’s economy. Who has joined the monthly movement? A small group of business owners have already joined Motivated Business Professional founders and entrepreneurs in their own rights, Talia Foster and Shantel Collins, who says, “Occupy your community by supporting a small business.
