Support local and small businesses during these rough times that the whole world is going through.
Small businesses are suffering and they need our support.
This is how you can support local and small businesses:
- Buy gift cards to be used later. You can buy the gift cards for you or gift them to friends and family.
- Shop their products online for you or gift them to others
- Shout them out on social media
- Refer your friends and family to them
- Write them a review on yelp or google
In this blog post, I’m sharing local businesses in Murrieta/Temecula, CA and online businesses. Some of the local businesses do sell some products online as well.
- Fine Arts Network Theater in Temecula, CA. You can donate to the theater or purchase tickets for future shows.
- Artistic Dance Academy in Murrieta, CA. Even though the studio is closed, you can still schedule privates with one of their amazing teachers. You can also ask them how you can purchase their apparel or if they have gift cards available. Make sure you follow ADA on Instagram because they’re posting daily about online dance classes.

I have free and paid resources you can check out on this website. Click on “Blog” to read some of the posts that I’ve written over the years and click on “Shop” to buy one of my ebooks that’ll help you stay energized and healthy during quarantine. I’m also super active on Instagram and I have a giveaway happening right now that’ll end on 3/23/2020. Make sure to check out how you can win one of my paid ebooks here.
Finally, if you have friends who sell shakes, makeup, essential oils, cleaning products, support them if you can. When you support a small business, you support a person trying to build her dream or a mother trying to pay for her daughter’s dance classes. “All for one and one for all.”
It’ll mean the world to me and to all of the small businesses listed in this post when you share this blog post with your friends and family. Let’s all support each other and help each other thrive.
Let me know in the comments who you’d like to support.
