The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.

-Nolan Bushnell

Today is Small Business Saturday. Do you part and help support your local ma and pop shops. They have worked hard in setting up their business and work even harder to stay afloat in the sea of the mainstream brick-and-motors and online giants. Don’t let their hard work and dreams go to waste. If you are in ATX, then I will happily give you suggestions:

  1. Uncommon Objects – vintage shop
  2. Blue Elephant Boutique – women’s clothing
  3. Waterloo Records – music
  4. Toy Joy – toys
  5. Half Price Books – books and music –> ok this isn’t really “local” local but they’re having a 20% off sale and are significantly smaller than Barnes & Noble. It would be wrong of me to not list my favorite place in the world. 🙂
