A group of business owners in Berkeley Heights got together to create a video. A script was drafted to share a message of hope, community, and support. In this case, it was also an opportunity to fundraise for businesses in the town that need help most. We at Buy Local NJ donated our time to edit and publish the video that can be shared on a website or to social media. Local media including TapInto helped share it to the community as well.
BuyLocalNJ is what happens when brothers Andy and Chris, native New Jerseyans and owners of financial advisory firm Runnymede Capital Management, wondered, “What if we create a website that promotes buying local by interviewing business owners for our community?”
Join us in finding, supporting, and celebrating local businesses that are helping to build our communities by sustaining vibrant town centers, connecting neighbors, and contributing to local causes. Thank you for buying local!
This is the most crazy and stressful time to be a business owner, not to mention just being a human in general. We started the BuyLocalNJ project to support local businesses and this is a time that requires even more. Given the unprecedented economic hardship, the government passed the $2.2 trillion stimulus bill called Coronavirus, Air, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) which makes $350 billion available to small businesses in the form of "Paycheck Protection Program" loans. Business owners may be eligible for loans that are completely forgivable if used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, and utilities over an 8 week period.
I found this video (and graphic) in an article by Buster Hein, John Wick director shoots epic snowball fight entirely on iPhone, at cultofmac.com.
While we are not David Leitch, the visionary director behind John Wick and Deadpool 2, if you own a smartphone, many of us have a very powerful tool in hand.
When small business wins, communities win. Community leaders everywhere are in search of new ways to spark growth, keep young people engaged, and revitalize downtown areas. One answer is to cultivate small businesses because when a town offers locally owned restaurants, cool coffee shops, and unique boutiques—along with architects, attorneys, and other professionals—that downtown is often the heart and soul of a vibrant community.
